Anonymous said: What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?
50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.
It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.
While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.
Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it.
It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.
skip the ant-man movie make the black widow movie or better yet make a black widow trilogy who the fuck wants ant-man when you could have natasha fucking romanoff come on

Wait. Natasha. / What? / Just- / Spit it out, Barnes. / Nothing. Stay warm, is all. Be careful.
mine says a female, 18-24, interested in fashion and beauty, so most of my ads are from retailers who specialize in makeup and dresses - so it’s entirely accurate

i think we all know how much i’m going to cry in ‘the fallen son’ lets be honest.
Try not to fall and scream and cry over Fallen Son and Civil War
Can we talk about Thor: Ragnarok?? Do you guys know the Marvel Ragnarok in the comics??? It’s brutal. BRUTAL. Just as much as the mythological Ragnarok.
Pretty much all of the ones after Age of Ultron are speculations concerning the titles, because somebodye removed the original caption from the amazing artist.
So no Cap3 is not called Fallen Son and Avengers 3 is not Civil War.
So unless we get an official announcement concerning those movies, please don’t freak out.
