I post fan gifs alongside whatever pretentious stuff I happen to be interested in at the time. Don't expect to find depth or coherency here.
In light of the 50 Shades of Grey trailer coming out today, quick reminder that that book is about an abusive and controlling relationship, not BDSM.
Fanfiction (published or not) is important for women of all ages to explore gender roles and sexuality in a way that is less stigmatized and more accessible.
But do not do the BDSM community a disservice by calling the relationship described in the book a standard BDSM experience.
Saw the trailer. And the response is… “Meh.”
I also saw the trailer. This is accurate. Also, the Mary Sue is DEAD ON about the trailer having a horror movie feel.
The Guardian also has a fine review of the trailer. http://www.theguardian.com/film/filmblog/2014/jul/24/fifty-shades-of-grey-trailer-review(via madamehardy)
