This blog is against 50 Shades of Grey and will NOT support it this Valentine's Day.
You know, I wasn’t going to post one of these even though a lot of my followers did, because that’s not what my blog is about. You know, I don’t want to tell people what to enjoy and not enjoy, and hey, you wanna read these books or see this movie, I don’t want to be the one to put a damper on your party.
But then I was listening to the radio at work the other day. Radio 104.5 in Philly, and the male DJ did a little advert for the film, and what he said just made me so uncomfortable, I suddenly felt the need to speak up. He said “And boys, this is how to take things from the movies to the bedroom this Valentine’s Day”. And I just imagined all these boys who didn’t know any better trying to replicate the abuse they see in the movie on their girlfriends or dates. And I felt sick.
This book series is not what BDSM is about, it does not represent the BDSM community as far as I'm aware and it does show an abusive, unhealthy relationship. So please, be educated before you see the film and don't try what you see at home (because they're doing it wrong). Be safe.
