Fifty Shades of ABUSE

Fifty Abusive Moments in
Fifty Shades of Grey

Yes, you read that title right.  I'm so tired of being told that there's no abuse in Fifty Shades of Grey, that I've decided to compile something of a list.  A list of fifty abusive moments, to be precise.  Because, well, I'm a sucker for a blog title that's also a play on the book title.  I'm aware that this is going to be a LONG process and therefore a long, long blog to read, but if you've somehow stumbled upon it as a Fifty Shades fan, I implore you to at the very least give it a look. Think there can't possibly be fifty examples of abuse in the biggest-selling "romance" novel of all time?  Think again...

This is supposed to be a "love story" and I don't know how many ways of saying "it's not" there are left.  All I'm going to say is NO.  If someone treats you the way Christian treats Ana, get the hell out of there.  You deserve better.  We all do.  And we all deserve better "erotica" than Fifty Shades of Grey.

To read the entire thing, in all it's wondrous glory: 
Go HERE. Read that.

And just for the record, I AGREE.

  1. I thought the book was a complete waste of trees.....Also, did you see the author's interview with a popular morning show - where she admitted that 'I'm not a writer'....

    1. It's pretty obvious to me that the author is right, they're Not a writer. If they were, they would have done their BDSM research first. However, I blame the publishing house's Editors more. That was the shittiest Editing job I've ever seen. Also, a Good editor would have realized that the author didn't know diddly-squat about real BDSM.
