If you strip away the makeup, acting career, and Hollywood manufactured and promoted image of The Ultimate Woman, what you have left was just another scared female mammal running around the planet for a short while before self destructing.
This is not what women emulate, however.
What they are emulating is the illusion of the Uber Woman, who is so overpoweringly sexual that no man can resist, no matter what his station in life (ie, sports hero/DiMaggio, intellectual/Arthur Miller or POTUS/Kennedy).
This is an illusion created by the Hollywood powers that be, to promote an image, a mirage, to tickle the mongolian idiot fantasies of the great unwashed, sitting in the movie theater with their popcorn and dreaming of being something greater than they really are.
Ordinary women (which Norma Jean Baker was) dream of having this sexual power to command powerful men and turn them into simpering infants the way ordinary men dream of being John Wayne, or some other powerful fantasy figure.
No one really needs this shit.
It is mass hypnosis for the profit and benefit of a select few.
None of these women will be Marilyn Monroe.
Not even Norma Jean Baker was Marilyn Monroe.
