Anonymous asked: Thoughts on the soon to be 50 shades of grey movie?

I am trying my best to have no thoughts on it at the moment. 

Right now it is the calm before the storm and I am enjoying not having to talk about the monstrosity. 

However I doubt I will be able to live on in blissful ignorance for much longer, because we all know that pretty soon sexualised violence is going to get glamourised all over the media, not to mention that young girls will start wanting their own Christian Greys, which is terrifying because of what a controlling character he is and the fact he clearly knows nothing about consent. 

The film is being sold as sexually liberating and empowering to women, which to me personally is pure and utter rubbish, because regardless of an individual’s personal choice about their own sex life, we should not in any way be glamourising and romanticising sexualised violence and relationships in which consent is not respected. 

I will be watching with vague horror from the sidelines as this cinematic nightmare unfolds.
