50 shades of grey backash

Because they see things in black and white!

Buzzfeed Shift has a great piece on why there’s been backlash against Fifty Shades of Grey by various Christian women. Some of their reasons for disliking it include:

– “The Lord doesn’t want His daughters to be wilting, weak-willed, wimpy women who welcome and enjoy abuse.”

– “Without a genuine relationship with Christ, it’s our belief that women will continue to seek satisfaction for their emotional needs in places that just won’t ever fully satisfy.”

– “‘Curiosity’ has led to the downfall of multitudes who have been trapped in the destructive, downward vortex of sexual sin.”

– “Anything other than my husband creating arousal in me would be missing the mark of God’s intention.”

– “A few years ago, God asked me to give up all fiction reading. To this day I have had no regrets.”

So: Basically there’s some worry that this will impact your enjoyment of your actual sex life, and there’s also someone who is a schizophrenic and just really loves biographies.

Oddly, no one pointed out that a good reason not to read it is that the writing is amazingly terrible.
