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.
Agreed, agreed fully.

Facts, this cartoon show was so good in the 90s. My Dad & I both used to enjoy watching it.

Fuck yeah on that C&J girl!
Watch the whole movie on youtube. This is one of my favorite from Joan’s horror movie days in the 60s. Wait until the twist, it even blew my boyfriend’s mind the first time he saw it. Enjoy!

You can thank me later.
Yeah, my friend Stef takes gorgeous photos. And this talented lady didn’t make hurt either. Love these! See the rest of the shots at her blog!
I have 3 events scheduled for the same night in October …
Time for me to really put my “creative director” hat on. 4 “Space Dollz” for a convention, 2 Victorian masquerade strolling tables & a jester for a charity for a local hospital & 2 “Dead Girl Dancers” for my friends’ White Zombie/Rob Zombie cover band.
I am towing the line somewhere between totally overjoyed and totally overwhelmed that my dance team is finally taking off. What a blessing!
& this all happening in October around Halloween - the busiest time of year for ALL performers! I think Fall is going to be pretty rad this year Richmond.
