Anonymous asked: What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?

50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.

It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.

While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.

Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it. 

It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.

REBLOG FOREVER.

This is how I would wrap up the TWO WEEKS NOTICE trilogy: 
2 WEEKS 2 NOTICE: Sandra Bullock is in a zany but horrifying accident and has to have experimental surgery that leaves her essentially just a head. As she recovers,  she slowly realizes Hugh Grant has tricked her into working for him again. Can she escape his employ for a second time? Without the use of her body? Meanwhile, the snakes that live inside of Hugh Grant and operate him like a human skin puppet aren’t getting along. Can they put their differences aside long enough to save their business? Directed by Jennifer Lynch (Boxing Helena).
2WN: TOKYO DRIFT: Hugh Grant is kidnapped by a rival corporation while doing business in Japan. Sandra Bullock gets a second experimental surgery to become a car in order to rescue him. Can she do it before the kidnapper’s two week deadline is up? Bullock shines in a performance where she mostly communicates to the audience in honks and flashing headlights.
Spinoff:
TWO WEEKS NOTICE ORIGINS: (ROBERT KLEIN’S CHARACTER’S NAME): In an experimental mix of documentary and narrative film, Robert Klein is horrified to discover those 200 HBO specials he’s done were actually televised.
