Help Expose the Lies of “50 Shades”
Fifty Shades of Grey has taken the world by storm. The well-oiled PR machine they have hired would have you think that all women want to be treated as slaves and that “NO” really means “YES!”
I believe that a majority of people are not buying into these lies, but they are bullied by the mainstream media into staying silent. Today with the release of the new movie trailer, most of the popular news outlets are pushing this story that romanticizes and normalizes sexual violence.
The popular series promotes torture as sexually gratifying and normalizes domestic violence, particularly violence against women. This type of material cultivates a rape and sexual violence culture and is now permeating our society. With the popularity of this book, mainstream opinion-makers (like Oprah, the Today Show, Planned Parenthood and Broadway) are telling the public (especially youth) that humiliation, degradation and torture in sex is normal and to just give it a try.
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), published by the American Psychiatric Association, states that sadism and masochism are mental disorders, which should be dealt with on a professional psychiatric level.
We must oppose the continued promotion of BDSM in our society. We will go after all public leaders that propagate the lies that torture and violence are normal and healthy sexual templates.
I implore you to speak up. Below is the statement that we sent to the press. Please help to expose the lies in their logic wherever you can.
