Guys I’m writing. davidnailme will be pleased.
I’m pretty sure she will since she’s been badgering me to do this for a while now.
apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad fuck” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
this gives me hope.
if there is one person on the planet you should trust when it comes to books it’s Matilda
♫ it’s going down, i’m yelling Simba ♫
IT’S BEEN 20 YEARS
WHAT DO YOU MEAN ITS BEEN 20 YEARS
oh my god
"We are together. Because I love you and you love me, and none of the rest of it matters. We are together."
Stand up to injustice and hatred.
Look at that jackass go “I - I don’t like it”, as if it even matters. Sit yo stupid ass down, boy.
tumblr likes to post these kind of things without context, but i figured before everyone starts hating this guy they should know that his name is yousef erakat, a muslim youtuber from palestine, and he is performing a social experiment to see how people would react to someone attacking a woman in a hijab.
”it’s her choice ” my ass . I’m pretty sure she was forced to wear that thing by her family , religion and stuff
Look at this asshole.
Laugh at this asshole.
I’m a muslim, and at the age of thirteen, my mum and dad asked me if I wanted to wear a hijab. I said I’d think on it, and then later replied with no.
My sister said yes.
Almost every muslim woman (except for the bullshit propaganda your uneducated ignorant ass sees on CNN) is given the choice to wear a hijab.
Why don’t you take your ignorant comments and shove them up your ass, before I bitch slap you so hard you smash into the surface of the fucking sun.
I think this is the same guy who did a social experiment on bullying, calling people out that just ignored him bullying another guy.
I think what he does is great and it physically embodies a quote:
"All it takes for evil to flourish is for good men to do nothing"
We all need to make a point of, not just being tolerant, respectful humans, but also stopping others who are being ignorant.
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.
I don’t really ever give a shit about 50 shades of grey but this is important for people to know, when the movie comes out it’ll be much more accessible for a lot of young women and that’s dangerous. On top of that, the misinformation spread about BDSM through this book and movie will create a lot of unhealthy precedent for relationships everywhere. There is already a huge population of people who believe BDSM is like this and it results in safety issues and aggression (often when someone doesn’t agree with such a ridiculous and unreasonable idea of BDSM), a combination that will go down many dark roads.
Dita being Dita.
