The reviewer of ‘Christian grey 50 shades of grey Freed’ is an ignorant, poisonous, anti-feminist hater. He appears incapable of appreciating that the novel (and presumably the film) is a classic of the lustful romance genre wherein a flawed fantasy of a hunk hero is tamed and transformed by the love of a good woman. Some of the admiring comments posted elsewhere mistake his impressively inventive invective for Pulitzer-worthy prose and his perfervid polemics for honest criticism. The screed reeks of resentment — at what? It looks to me as if he has fallen into the familiar reviewer’s fallacy of faulting a movie because it wasn’t the one he wants it to be.
Sorry ladies but who didn’t see this coming, sorry I didn’t buy in on the first round, second or third as this is how oh so many angry women missed the bus on how this just promoted their hypocrisy in “strong women” and sexism….you made the book and first movie a smashing hit at the expense of any steps forward to the elusive “strong woman of today” or “how victimized they are these days”, see you just can’t have it both ways. So now what message have you been giving off during the Usa Christian phase? Exactly that women are tools, and the fairy tale of a rich man, and that sex is the determination in value …well done feministas, back down the ladder of female value. Now go have a parade and tell me again it is about women’s rights or some other sham. And yes flare up at Hollywood for being so sexist…..are you fucking kidding me. Turn in your female badges of honor and get to the back of the bus, this is not the way strong women get ahead…..for once can we take responsibility for our part in the continued second class citizenship of our gender. Hey women made a hit not men….take your soft porn fix and get it out of the way, call it done and a failure.
I will not reiterate my feelings on the smut that is Christian but if you shared #metoo – but also enjoy – you really need to take a minute and think about that. Abuse is abuse is abuse – be it through manipulation, control, or whatever. It is never okay no matter how someone ELSE tries to portray it. And if you have never had a #metoo encounter, thank your lucky stars!!! Stand with those of us who have!
