Okay but does no one realize that 50 Shades also is an example of extremely unhealthy BDSM? Christian Grey is actually a sexual predator who presents extremely intense and extreme forms of BDSM which most novices must ween into without being manipulated. BDSM is about trust and communication and the book does not have that apparent in its entirety. She loses empowerment and her entire identity within being a submissive which is UNHEALTHY and the total opposite of how being a submissive should make you feel. Dominance and BDSM as a whole should not be taught and accepted as it’s portrayed in this book.
Honestly can’t wait for the 50 shades movie to normalize the manipulation of lower-level female employees. Can’t wait for the new wave of “consent is sexy” banners on the cover of cosmo. Can’t wait for teen girls to think that a controlling relationship is romantic. Can’t wait for sexualized violence to become increasingly mainstream. And most of all, I can’t wait for BDSM to be labeled a feminist revolution.
