kammartinez, you know what really pisses me off? It was starting to be completely irrelevant and then they bring it back with that fucking movie. I cannot believe people are touting it as as fucking ‘love story’. If that’s a love story I’m a fucking tuna fish. Fuck that. Fuck that book. Fuck people who won’t read it with a critical eye. Fuck the people who don’t seem to care that people, young women, will see this and think that this is somehow romantic, the abusive relationship that has the fucking gall to call itself a BDSM relationship. This book is the fucking Al Queda of BDSM, the Westboro of BDSM and should be fucking burned.
…I have many angry feelings about that book. Sorry.
maeglinhiei Totally agree with everything you’ve just said. Just today at lunch I had to explain to a colleague why it was a terrible movie and a terrible series. IDK if she understood my point, but I had to tell her because she’s a mother, she has a daughter, and I don’t want her to ever think that anything she sees in this movie is okay to happen to her baby girl. I explicitly said that Christian Grey is exactly the kind of man parents tell their daughters not to date, told her that he’s an abusive asshole rapist (though not in so many words) who should be put down like a rabid dog.
(I left out any explanation re: the representation of BDSM in the movie; you know how it is here in the PH.)
sorry but im like genuinely distressed by the existence of the 50 shades of grey movie i dont want this shit to exist im furious that there has to be another goddamn fucking trash piece of media that’s being released in cinemas and widely discussed about a powerful sexually dominant cishet white dude controlling a weak woman who is powerless to his charm and wit and his sexual abuse! and not to mention normalising abusive and creepy relationships like i just dont want girls to grow up thinking this is okay and it’s really fucking upsetting
A muggle-born’s sibling sends them a howler in the middle of the school year and it arrives while they eat. When they open it, all it does is simply scream “WHAT TEAM?”. Nearly all the muggle-borns shout “WILDCATS!” before returning to their meal, leaving the pure-bloods in total confusion of what the hell they just witnessed.
I accept and fully support this headcanon
