50 Shades of Abuse

We are teaching women that they don't have to examine the affects of their abuse and work on empowering themselves. This doesn't break the cycle of gender-based violence in our culture. This perpetuates it. And that is not acceptable.

If you're skeptical about the movie being true to the book, and the actors doing justice with their interpretation of the characters, the best thing you can do is remain as open-minded as possible. Otherwise, you run the risk of shortchanging yourself as well as the leads in the film.

Fifty Shames of Grey

For the people screaming that the series glorifies BDSM, I can only assume you haven't read to the end. Christian Grey's predilections are presented as a "sickness" that Anastasia "cures" him of. She doesn't just roll over and say "yes, master."

What does Fifty Shades of Grey reveal that women really want? The movie isn't about women loving rich guys or stalkers or wanting abuse or even S&M. These features are exaggerations of common, deep-seated wishes for security, danger, excitement, adventure.

Fifty Shades of Grey did not tickle my fancy but provided unfettered bonding time with my girlfriends and confirmed once again, that laughter pairs well with everything -- even inhibition.

Fifty Shades of Grey or The Six Gajillion Dollar Man

Fifty Shades of Grey is first and last a fairy tale wherein a virginal, weak tea-drinking (per the book's) non-moneyed heroine fixes/redeems/saves ("I can make him better, faster, stronger!") her nasty Gatsby. Or do we call him a dark Arthur?

Ana, and her fans, are rewarded not by on-screen climax, but by the promise of marriage. All of this sounds an awful lot like ideas embedded in abstinence-only sex ed.
