do you ever feel like there’s just so many pretty girls but most dudes are just subpar like there are radiant goddesses everywhere and just piles and piles of guys in backwards baseball caps and sandals
it’s called makeup
you can put eyeliner on a frat boy that doesn’t change the fact that’s he’s wearing a neon muscle shirt and nike flip flops
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.
So here we go again, it’s back to rear it’s ugly head. 50 Shades is not BDSM. It’s vanilla bullshit fantasy. Romanticized abuse masquerading as BDSM. It is in no way an accurate depiction of S/m or D/s. Submission is offered and Dominance is earned. It’s about love, respect, and trust. It is consensual, not forced. ‘nuff said.
Ugh, that trailer for 50 Shades of Grey has me feeling some type of way! Thousands of couples are gonna go watch that movie together for Valentine’s Day next year and think that a BDSM relationship is made up of a sadistic, manipulative, fuckwit of a man and a poor, naive woman who was sexually abused. But none of that matters because Christian Grey is hot and rich, right? Prince Charming with a personality disorder. This is NOT BDSM! This is ABUSE! Plain and simple.
