50 Shades of Abuse Flyer - Canada

Okay. I understood all the flack Twilight got for being an abusive relationship. Because it was and it was being read by a very young and impressionable audience. But ffs, 50 Shades is an ADULT NOVEL. Iit is about a BDSM couple. Which - newsflash - do exist. It is a completely consensual form of dominate/submissive sex play. The whole concept of domestic violence and abuse is that one side exerts control over an unwilling victim. I don’t recall Anastasia, or whatever she’s called, protesting to Christian’s form of sex. If I remember correctly, she quite enjoyed it! So before you condemn a work of romanticizedfiction, actually consider it’s audience and remember that they are mature and capable enough to know the difference between reality and fiction.

so i guess you didn’t read the parts where he coerces her and the part where he continues after she has used her safeword and acts like a fucking creep whenever they aren’t having sex
it is the worst possible introduction to BDSM i could imagine
i know my shit okay

im hoping the people defending this book are 1. never getting into BDSM 2. not currently into BDSM 3. havent read the book bc i dont want to believe anyone is that fucking stupid

Let me
just
fucking
drop
some fucking
knowledge on you right now.
Wanna know the BDSM mantra? Safe, sane, consensual.
So let me explain why this book was devoid of all three of these things.
Safe - In the first few chapters of the novel, Christian Grey tracks Ana’s cell phone to find her at a club. Takes her home when she’s drunk, changes her when she’s so intoxicated she doesn’t remember him doing so,and informs her he will be keeping tabs on her for her own benefit. This is not the behaviour of a respectable Dominant. This is the behaviour of a power hungry, abusive asshole who really can’t take no for an answer.
Sane - One of the most important parts of BDSM is aftercare. Scenes can be extremely traumatizing and intense for the submissive. Aftercare is anything from petting to cuddling to holding to sweet talking, whatever degree of gentleness a bottom would need to pull them out of “subspace”. How does Christian provide aftercare? He submits Ana to a traumatizing first time spanking experience AND THEN FUCKING LEAVES. AND GETS MAD THAT SHE DIDN’T TELL HIM SHE WAS UPSET. He’s the one who should fucking know better! That, again, is not the act of a responsible Dominant. It’s the act of a selfish abuser.
Consensual - Did I mention he undressed her when she was belligerently drunk? Tracked her phone to locate her? He also buys her a new car despite her saying no countless times. Now, consent is important for any kind of sexual activity at all. Consent means informed, consent means enthusiastic. Informed, enthusiastic consent. This is crucial in a BDSM setting. Scenes can be extremely intense, especially for the bottom. What is Christian’s form of obtaining consent? Handing Ana a fucking contract highlighting all the things he wants to do her asshole and asking her to sign it. She was a virgin (Don’t even get me fucking started.) who had never before been exposed to BDSM. Entering in that kind of relationship takes a gargantuan amount of trust and knowledge so you know exactly what you’re getting into. Not reading a list of kinks on a piece of paper and signing your rights to say no away. Christian didn’t offer her resources, he didn’t offer her information. He gave her an ultimatum. That is not the sort of consent a responsible Dom/me would seek from their submissive.
Fuck. This. book. It’s written in a shitty way, it’s a terrible example of a BDSM relationship (ask anybody already involved in the lifestyle and watch them go blue in the face just thinking about it), which is already faced with enough prejudice and misunderstand, and it romanticizes and glorifies abuse.

And this post is going into my bookmarks, because it is beautiful.

What scares me most is the fact that people, misinformed and ignorant people, will now try to enter the community/find play partners with the dangerous ideas of what BDSM is. They won’t respect a sub, they won’t listen.
And that can seriously hurt people. People can DIE.

This book can choke on its ~Inner Goddess~

pandora-twists said: What are your predictions of how will Gil & Vince relationship will conclude. Gil from his side had apparently done what he could in "Falling" but we know how that affected Vince and that Gilbert still doesn’t understand the depth of his brother’s emotions. Does he need to understand or it is fine as it is now that Vincent have Ada and Leo to fill emotional gaps that Gilbert will not. What is the ideal, how will Jun go about it?

A few extra gifts have been added, with special rules!! Please follow the instructions!

Giveaway:

Let me explain what this is about! This is a (sort-of) remake of this giveaway. If you’ve entered that one, you are also considered a participant of this one! They’re the same giveaway, after all. 

I didn’t clearly list all the rules and terms in that one, and since I changed my url and domain, I’ve decided that I should clarify it up! I’ve also messed up my funding, and I’ve realized I can definitely throw in an extra thing in here. 

PRIZES

  • FIRST PLACE

Will receive a copy of either the Ruby or Sapphire remakes, with a 90% chance of receiving a 3DS. If the 3DS is not included, a 2DS definitely will be! (In any case, an appropriate console will be included.)

  • SECOND PLACE

Will receive BOTH remake games! That means Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire! 

  • THIRD PLACE

Will receive a single copy of either game. 

  • EXTRA GIFTS:
    - First place will get a 100$ gift card on eBay, along with any anime character figma that costs less than 30$!
    - Second place will get a 50$ gift card on eBay! You can use it to whatever you’d like! 
    - Third place will get a 30$ gift card on eBay!
  • EXTRA GIFT RULES: 
    -
     You have to follow Athena and Kii! They have really nice blogs and post cute stuff, you won’t regret it! 
    - You don’t have to follow these rules, but you’ll miss out on a lot if you win! 

REGULAR RULES 

  1. You have to be following meI’ll check! 
  2. One reblog = one entry. A maximum of three entries are allowed. Likes don’t count. 
  3. The giveaway ends on August 29th, 2014
  4. The games will be pre-ordered once the giveaway ends, from the winners’ nearest store with online shopping support. That means the games will NOT be region-locked, and will be available to the winners on the very release date (if not a few days before or after, depending on the store.)
  5. You have to be comfortable with giving me your shipping address. At the very least, your full name and city, if you’re second or third. The 3DS/2DS may or may not be purchased here, but the details of that will be disclosed about a month before the giveaway ends! 
  6. Once again, if you entered this giveaway, you’re a participant in this one, too. However, it’d be a huge favor if you could reblog this post, too. If you have less that three entries, you’ll get an entry from reblogging this! 
  7. Have fun!
