That's a bit meta. I don't see anyone denying she went through trauma. Also, she's dead. She doesn't care.
Marilyn Monroe is an icon of American womanhood, and see who she is. Marilyn was sexually abused as a child and this permanently damaged her psyche. You've only got to watch her perform to see she is not sexual rather she has an hysterical sexiness, playing to the sexual instincts of the American male, just as she was forced to play to the sexual instincts of her sexual abuser as a child.
And just look who the American male lusts after. He lusts after American women who have been broken into sexuality as children and who, as a result, have broken psyches. American men want broken American women. American men like women who have been raped as children and so broken in for them.
