“What's the reason you don't like 50 shades?”
horrible aggressive misogyny and the romanticization of domestic violence and sexual torture aren’t some of my favorite things and young girls picking up that book or watching that movie being left wondering if that’s what relationships are supposed to be REALLY makes me angry.
this man takes a young woman who is less powerful, less experienced and not entirely confident about the area of life he’s leading her into and then starts doing horrible sexual things to her, he removes her boundaries and normalizes the violence against her
50 shades of grey reinforces and perpetuates the disgusting lie that women LIKE and WANT to be hurt and that you can heal a broken man if you just love him enough and do all the things he wants you to do bc eventually he won’t want to hurt you anymore
he goes from a sexually violent predator to prince charming and it’s gross and offensive and nobody should support it no matter how cute the guy playing him is.
I’d like to keep in mind the author of the original was in-fact a female and she managed to do all that lel
and the writing is trite and written like a 6th grader. I could write better erotica than that book. It’s written terribly along with the objectification of women and this is why we enjoy it? Because we like being controlled and find that romantic? I agree with the above poster, it gives a bad idea of what a true relationship is and how we should view sex as about domination and control by men. I mean to each his own but it’s a book of objectification no matter how much they romanticize it.
