the thing that really fucks me up about people defending 50 shades is that even after you shoot down all their arguments of it being a non-abusive relationship, their last argument is that the third book explains why Christian Grey is like that. Like their argument is literally that his backstory excuses his abusive behavior. The fact that people think this is a good argument is fucked up. Fuck this book and fuck this movie.
why is tumblr advertising for 50 shades darker; why do i have to see this with my own two eyes I just want to reblog memes and aesthetic pictures without The Straights in Masks staring at me let me be in Peace
So, I tried to read “50 Shades of Grey” this weekend, but every time Anastasia said “Oh My” (which was like, 2-3 times PER PAGE), I couldn’t help but imagine George Takei saying “Oh Myyyyyy”. By page 12, I imagined everything Anastasia said was said in George Takei’s voice. By page 15, I just imagined George Takei was Anastasia. I had to give up somewhere around page 17, because Christian has started to sound and look like William Shatner/Captain Kirk circa ST:TOS, and after that, I imagined everyone wearing Enterprise uniforms, and there was no way the story was going come back from that.
why would you criticise films, books, music videos, etc. but not porn? how is that logically consistent? if “blurred lines” is rape culture & the simulated abuse of “50 shades” fetishises & glamorises rape, then why is porn above evaluation? the rule seems to be “consuming media that depicts rape & abuse as sexy, desirable, or romantic is HARMFUL… unless you also masturbate to it”. anyway, PSA for directors & writers: do you hate women but want to avoid being called out for it? tell everyone that the stuff you make is just masturbation material
