I am so incredibly tired of seeing people post about how important it is to boycott the movie 50 Shades of Grey! There have been a number of movies released this year that have touched upon sensitive and inappropriate situations and those same movies have either been glorified or ignored! JLo just stared in the movie The Boy Next Door- a movie about statutory rape! But it was okay because it was a younger hot male messing around with his older hot teacher? That doesn’t make sense to me - how no one seemed to think that glorifying rape was bad? Or how about other media outlets that glorify murder, prostitution, and rape! I don’t see people lining up to ban Grand Theft Auto - a game dedicated to crimes against women! I am not trying to say to stop seeing these movies or playing these games but talk about it! Watch the movies and play the games and when you’re done question yourself and others about why these things are bad and how you can avoid/stop them from happening to you! Yes I’m going to see 50 Shades of Grey and then I’m going to talk to my boyfriend about boundaries! S&M is okay but emotional and physical abuse that is unwanted is not.
My latest shipment from Pioneers Press. I’m really excited about these books, but the best thing about shipments from these guys is that they always send these very sweet thank you notes. Thank YOU wearepioneerspressjessie-duke
