Say no to abuse. Boycott 50 Shades of Grey, the movie: sign the petition

  • 27

Background:

Hollywood executives have chosen to release the film version of the "erotic" novel 50 Shades of Grey in theaters this Valentine's Day - Feb. 14, 2015. 

While the marketing campaign is selling the movie as a "romance," there is nothing authentically romantic about the tale of a sado-masochistic sexual relationship between a young, vulnerable student, Anastasia, and an older billionaire, Christian Grey.

Critics have described the book as misogynistic, pornographic, exploitative, sexually violent, and anti-romance – and there is little reason to expect the film will be anything different.  

Opposition to the book and movie crosses the ideological spectrum, with many feminists expressing grave concerns about the messages the book is sending. One post on the leading feminist website Jezebel slammed the book (and by extension, the movie) as "50 Shades of Abuse."

Marketing for the film is already in full swing, and little concern is being given to the influence that the positive and pornographic portrayal of an abusive BDSM relationship will have on those who will see the movie. 

While undoubtedly many people will flock to see the film what it is released, there is a growing movement opposing both the films and the book.

This upcoming Valentine’s Day, join this movement by pledging to take stand for true love and true romance. Together, let's make 50 Shades the worst box-office flop in history.

Sign this petition, and then share it with your friends and family.
