    Fifty shades of reinforcing the worst possible cultural memes. Crushing passivity, venality, incapacity to own one’s sexuality, ‘surrender’ to others as a supposed path to ‘liberation.’

    The worst of it is that WOMEN are buying this shit. Boys all around the world are being taught ‘what women want’ by this kind of dreck. I wish that ‘James’ might be isolated on desert island with one of the PUA/MRA creeps who are the other side of the same coin.
