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.

REBLOG FOREVER.

Boycott this fucking movie, for the love of god. These kinds of ideas are dangerous and set us back as a society

Whenever people call the acting in Classic Who “rubbish” or complain about the bad effects, I just laugh. The explosion here was much bigger than planned. It nearly burnt Sylvester McCoy’s clothes off, but he kept walking, staying in character, because he knew they couldn’t redo this scene. That’s dedication. *tips off her hat*

They’re the Great Lakes. If any other water was shown you wouldn’t see land because Canada is 99.9% rivers and swamps and lakes.

Either way, watch out for snakes.

I dunno, it’s picture day at Coal Hill or something. Working on my exaggerated likeness.
A while back after Puppet Clara got her eyebrows did, I realized these two needed a brotop name and yelled “EYEBROS.” Because they have eyebrows. (Yeah, I know most of us have eyebrows. I’m saying they have eyebrows.)

Oooo love this drawing by Doctor Puppet animator/storyboard artist Erin.
