Across America many different advocacy and morality groups are working to boycott the film premiere of the movie (based on a book) 50 Shades of Grey.
The book was recently exhibited on the National Center on Sexual Exploitation “Dirty Dozen List” for being one of today’s leading contributors to sexual exploitation.
With the popularity of this series, mainstream opinion-makers (like Oprah, Dr. Phil, the Today Show and many more) are telling the public that humiliation, degradation, and torture in sex is normal and to just give it a try.
We must oppose the continued promotion of sexualized violence in our society. We will go after all public leaders that propagate the lies that torture and violence are normal and healthy sexual templates.
The National Center on Sexual Exploitation says the relationship between Christian Grey and the virginal college student, Anastasia Steele, “maps onto what would be considered an abusive relationship rife with domestic violence in the real world. Christian puts Ana under contract to serve as a sexual ‘submissive’ and uses intimidation, coercion, humiliation, violence, stalking, manipulation, jealousy, and other controlling behaviors to groom Ana and keep her under his domination.”
You can take part in the efforts by these groups to fight sexual exploitation in our nation and around the world by joining the boycott of “50 Shades of Grey”
