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.
And people wonder why I hate that book series! Stop popularizing rape culture seriously.
I absolutely love the end result.
i can’t believe i watched that
i thought this was going to take me on a spiritual journey and it did
SO THAT’S THE CONTEXT FOR THE PIZZA GIF

The difference here being that Grant Ward CHOSE to do them.
Worst of all — this dude is one of the execs for Agents of SHIELD, and this sounds like a prelude to a fucking redemption arc. Now I fully expect the next season to be a shitfest. Just… how can you misinterpret your characters this badly?
#friends don’t let friends write redemption arcs for grant ward
bucky was literally a prisoner of war who was experimented on and tortured until he was unable to fight back against any orders and the minute someone showed up who started treating him like a person again, he started to revert back to his humanity and fight against his programming
ward is a grown-ass man who was treated as a person by the people on his team clearly presented with opportunities by them to make the right choices and refused to make the right choices every time
fuck grant ward
y’all are surprised??? this is how he publicly promotes himself.
Creators often astound me. Sometimes with their insight, sometimes with their lack of it. How did you get this job, who is letting you have this responsibility and make these decisions? (via stonelionhearts)
Show me definite proof that Grant Ward had been kidnapped, mutilated, tortured, mind-wiped, brain-washed to an empty shell who will only do as he is ordered, no matter much the task is against his principles and life experiences, and has been for decades been treated as no more human than a object. Show we that, and I would root for Grant Ward too.
50 Shades of Grey is a book about romanticized abuse. It is not a depiction of any healthy relationship, BDSM or otherwise. It glorifies and romanticizes a rich and powerful man sexually assaulting a woman. It is not cute, it is not fun, and it sure as shit is not romantic. Please do not be fooled. This book is not what BDSM is about, and it is not what a romantic relationship should look like.
i love happy coincidences
I may have just laughed way too hard. I don’t care.
