BRUCE LEE AND SEX TRAFFICKING
Has anyone else noticed that in his own way Bruce was trying to alert us to the problem of sex trafficking in his films? I remember one movie where the women were being used like furniture as prostitutes, and the other where the women were being kept in cages that he freed. Bruce Lee was such a pioneer! Not only did he break all the rules by bringing the martial arts to the masses and not just the Chinese born, but he also taught us about health (he recovered from a broken back to fight again and was doing protein shakes before anyone else had even heard of such things), and lo and behold he was even trying to let us know about the reality that sex trafficking still existed in his day through his films. Mind you when these films were coming out - sex trafficking was being viewed as as "urban myth" - something that had gone by the history wayside.
