Fifty Shades of Grey has taken over the world it seems.
Parents, clergy, and even news stations are reporting lots of conflicting stories about this movie.
First off, it was based off a series of novels written by an ex-television producer from England.
Let’s consider this before we buy into the hype, she already was in the pipeline to get the momentum going for the books and movie!
Conservatives are finding ways to use this to their political gain.
Over the past few days since the movie’s release, my Facebook feed has been bombarded with movie pictures, and articles on how psychologically damaging this movie can be.
To that point I say this: DON’T WATCH IT THEN!
It is ridiculous that in an “advanced” society such as ours, that we are still telling people how to live.
Whether it be what to read, watch, and most cases say.
Freedom should not have so many stipulations.
It is bad enough that to apply for a job you have to give your ethnicity and gender. Ask for DNA sample, it may save time.
The point being, sexually explicit material has been around as long as prostitution has been a profession.
Sex is a natural act.
If people want to get kinky with in the lines of consensual sex, let them.
No one has the right to dictate to another person what he/she should and should not do.
That needs to definitely be true behind closed bedroom doors.
As long as the sexual deviants are not hurting me, I say let freedom ring and have a good time.
Fifty Shades of Grey is just a fictional movie, comparing it to realistic BDSM situations that are hypothetical, is very time consuming.
Just go read a book instead.
As far as the morality of it, people who are not happy with their own lives feel the need to judge others.
If everyone tended to their own house first, then like dominoes everything else would fall into place.
As for now, I simply say, be your own judge.
Decide to watch the movie for entertainment or for a deep psychological experience.
