I had a discussion about the examples of abuse, manipulation and stalker behavior shown in the 50 shades phenomenon yesterday. They are startlingly numerous, and I understand the appeal because I've written stories like this but there is no happy ending when these are used in a story. What bothers me, is that as a bdsm based movie- that is what they're portraying. He isn't the perfect man, it isn't a healthy relationship, I would run the other way.
It's a 50 Shades of ways I don't want my lifestyle to look like to the general public.
