Warning…another “50 Shades rant” inbound. 🙂
Had a pleasant chat with the fine folks at Restrained Elegance on Twitter. I think…THINK…I was chatting with Ariel Andresson (sp?) andout Mr. Grey and James Bond, believe it or not. Apparently in Britain, some kids were doing a dress up day in school…a “James Bond” was happily accepted, while the Grey character from 50 Shades was sent home to change costumes. Strange that. I mean, on some level I get it…Bond is a hero because he gets the bad guys…but he’s still killing people. The people who NEED killing, mind you, but he’s still killing…and a kid dressed as a sexual sadist gets sent home to change? Again…I GET why…but it seems we still have a ways to go in removing the taboo around what we do. :/
And by the way, I said it best here:
I don’t want a woman who wants to “fix” me. I also don’t want a sub who’s a complete dishrag. Neither is true BD/SM.
