It's important for people to figure out their own lives before involving someone else - to gauge where you are and work on your own issues. - Scarlett Johansson
My friend @murphmanfa sums up my feelings about 50 Shades of Grey PERFECTLY. I like my share of problematic things, but far too many women read these books and don’t KNOW they’re problematic, and believe that THAT is how bdsm works. It absolutely is not. Christian is abusive, manipulative, and is a downright bully. In a true dom/sub relationship, I would even go as far as to say that the sub is the one with the real power. They set the limits. A true dom will never bully you, never guilt you, never make you feel bad about saying no, and never ignore limits. You should never fear your dom. The amount of women who want a relationship like the one portrayed in the books frankly scares me. Absolute consent. Absolute limits. Absolute mutual respect. A dom who searches for a pushover is not a dom at all, but instead someone who gets off on abusing women and pretends it’s under the guise of kink. Do not trust any dom who enjoys 50 Shades of Grey. If you enjoy this series as a bit of throwaway reading, that’s cool, we all have our guilty pleasures. But do NOT ignore the problematic elements. Hope this helps. (I enjoy bdsm and kink in general so I feel I have some authority to say these things.)
I’d also like to add, as a writer, this book’s mere existence and popularity is disgusting. What began as Twilight fanfiction (let’s not even go down THAT road) has now become one of the best-selling novels of all time, eclipsing writers of real talent and imagination, instead flooding the market with this cheap, shock-tactics hack-work and its numerous imitators who cashed in with their mimics. Add to this the comments made above and one has to wonder why this got so popular. Sex sells. And apparently bad sex sells the best.
This is one thing I will gladly agree with Tumblr on.
Okay, legit fucking crying.
