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


Answer:

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.

Glass Gem Corn, to be precise. We’ve got the story of how these brilliant kernels (and other designer crops) came to be.  Blue tomatoes! Pinberries! Terrestrial wasabi!

Alright, these are kinda adorable…

Much-MUCH better than sad, tortured, & unfortunate Wee Ones staring at the camera hopelessly. THIS might actually help THEM find homes too.

NO BUT REALLY

the shelterpetproject sends in psa’s to my radio station a lot and they’re my favorite thing. some of the best ones:

  • a dog who talks about his human hiding his toys in the same place every time, and then being surprised when he finds them again
  • a cat who lives with a bachelor; “and sometimes he gets out of the shower and just walks around with no clothes on and I’m like helloooo, there’s a lady present! Humans, am I right?”
  • a dog who loves her ball but doesn’t understand why every time she brings it to her owner they throw it again. “and I’m like dude, that’s your ball! and then he throws it again!”

IT’S MY FAVORITE THING IT’S SO GOOD.

It’s probably sad how long I just looked for this audio post and how genuinely distressed I got that I couldn’t find it. I need this song on my blog like yesterday. Forever a Reba favorite.

I remember how much her realization that she was “never going to be good enough for him” resonated with me when I first watched this movie. She decided to push herself, not to be with him, but to prove him the fuck wrong.

Strong female role models who can still wear pink and love fashion. Yes yes yes.

I FUCKING LOVE THIS MOVIE OH MY GODDDDDDDDDD

CAN WE JUST STOP FOR A SEC THO?

HE’S INSULTING HER FOR BEING DUMB

SHE GOT INTO THAT SCHOOL ON HER OWN.

WARNER NEEDED HIS DADDY TO CALL THEM TO BE ABLE TO GET IN.

I LOVE THIS MOVIE NO ONE EVEN UNDERSTANDS.

AND he was WAITLISTED.
