Unless you've been living in a cave, I'm sure you've heard of the book 50 Shades of Grey. The movie by the same name releases on Valentine's Day. The plot of this story has been surrounded in controversy. Controversy gets people talking, makes people curious and then, consumers spend money to find out what the debate is about. If I was a producer I think I'd start the arguments myself.
The trailer for the 50 Shades of Grey movie, calls the premise a 'fairy tale', but Morality in Media says the trailer is attempting to “romanticize and normalize sexual violence.” Their statement goes on to say that the characters relationship shows, abuse of power, female inequality, coercion and sexual violence and glamorizes and legitimizes violence against woman.”
So I ask you again, is 50 Shades of Grey Role-playing or Abuse? Please share your opinion, but be respectful to each other even if you don't agree.
