Fifty Shades of Love
In a time where sexual consent, harassment, and assault are at the forefront of society’s conversations, it’s unsettling that “Fifty Shades of Grey” is championed as “empowering” when its protagonist is living a #MeToo experience.
Both porn & the “Fifty Shades” trilogy glamorize abuse.
#FiftyShadesOfLove encourages individuals to take a stand against abuse in all forms and fight for healthy relationships that respect consent, promote equality, and are devoid of physical and verbal aggression.
Porn & “Fifty Shades” Both —
1 Minimize or ignore consent.

2 Use wealth and power to glamorize abuse.

3 Encourage lopsided power dynamics in couple relationships.

4 Promote acceptance of verbal and physical aggression against women.

Research Shows —
1 Porn perpetuates the idea that women secretly enjoy being raped.1

2 The vast majority of porn—violent or not—portrays men as powerful and in charge, while women are submissive and obedient.2

3 Porn desensitizes both men and women to violence against women.3

4 Those with higher exposure to violent porn were six times more likely to have raped someone than those who had low past exposure.4

ROMANTICIZED OR SEXUALIZED ABUSE IS STILL ABUSE.
