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.
#More or less #BDSM and power exchange relationships aren’t like that #And the entire book is #Like some weird sadistic porn film that has 0% bearing on those kinds of relationships #Master/Slave scenarios have this thing called TRUST. AND BOUNDARIES. #But what were you expecting? This book is literally a Twilight fan fiction edited #And heated up to be served to an unknowledgeable #And idealistic group of women and young girls #Who think that it’s normal #This book and movie needs to fuck off. #And FYI? He’s not even CUTE.
