Having an all out war with people on FB today about 50 Shades
I will not stop reminding people that that book is about rape and abuse
I don’t care about your feefees or your personal sexual interests
There is a movie about to be released based on a book about abuse and it is going to further normalize this kind of behavior in men and it’s going to further socialize women and girls into desiring that behavior
I am weeping for my sisters today
^this. I DO NOT mind people practising BDSM or other kinds of consensual sexual games, but this is a book about abuse. NOT ABOUT KINKS, ABOUT ABUSE! He ‘conditions’ her to like what he wants out of her.
I have read the book because I felt I had to know what was going on about it, and never, ever, in the whole book is there a grown-up, consensual conversation about sexual likes and dislikes. Not only that, but not once are her desires lived out, or even talked about. It’s all about his desire to dominate and abuse her.
Once again: practise all the consensual sex games you want! But this is not that.
As a survivor of an abuse relationship it makes me want to vomit.
