Anonyme a dit: What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?
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.
Boycott this fucking movie, for the love of god. These kinds of ideas are dangerous and set us back as a society
Boycott, boycott, boycott. As said above, BDSM is not the problem. It is also not present in 50 Shades. 50 Shades is abuse; it is not BDSM.
My English isn’t good enough to clearly explain why I think 50 Shades is a terrible book, but aconissa did it for me. Thank you so much ! Still, there’s something I would like to add.
50 Shades is, indeed, a Twilight fanfic. Since I’m a fan of non-sparkling, predator et sensual vampires, I despise Twilight more than words could say. But it is common knowledge, in our underground world of fandoms, that there is good Twilight fanfic. I’ve been told many times that some of them are actually so much better than the books that even people who don’t like Twilight can read and like it ! I never tried but I do believe it.
Now, let’s set things straight. I’ve been writing fanfic for 10 years. I write stories, I try to do justice to characters I like. My stories can be sad or happy, they can be fun or infuriating or revolting, I want them to make my readers laugh or cry, I want them to rip their heart out to crush it with feels. I love it. And since fanfic is gradually becoming well-known even among uninterested people, it’s getting labeled, criticized, judged. And how do people judge us ?
No mistake here : there is no problem with porn. Porn is OK. Porn is good as long as it is well done. Porn can be great. My stories includes love scenes when it’s accurate, I love writing smut. But not everything is about sex. Lots of FF writers don’t even write that kind of stuff. Still, that’s how people like to label fanfic : it’s porn, only porn. People look at us like we’re all sexually frustrated nerds, getting release by using characters we write about like tissues. People think that this is the main - if not only - purpose of fanfiction. You know as well as I do that it isn’t.
What I wanted to add is this : every fanfic writer would like to make an original story with one of their fics. Getting published. Each and every one of us would have been proud to represent our community. Unfortunately, the first known fanfic based novel is 50 Shades. The first world famous fanfic is a Twilight fanfic, a sex-centered fanfic, packed with poorly written porn and showing no respect for the BDSM community and ways it supposedly describes. The first famous fanfic is this wrong, devious, even dangerous story.
Every time I try to explain that writing fanfiction doesn’t necessarily mean writing dirty sex scenes then post it on the web for people to get off reading it, I get the same look of “Yeah, sure, whatever you say”.
Twilight ruined vampires. 50 Shades ruined our reputation.
