How exactly does fifty shades reflect badly on the BDSM community?

congenitalprogramming:

I can’t believe people are still asking this.

  • romanticization of a maniplulative abuser
  • lack of and/or disposal of the importance of consent
  • taking advantage of someone from a lower socioeconomic class
  • perpetuating the risky behavior of novices hopping into D/s with no idea what it is, which ends up subjecting them to
  1. creepy abusive assholes who prey on naive subs who thing 50 shades represents BDSM (and who are prime victims because they wouldn’t know that they are being taken advantage of since force and possessiveness seem ‘romantic to them’
  2. People running out to get zip ties or rope and shit to tie themselves up with without actually reading up on bondage. Blood clots and injuries ensue, yay
  3. People putting themselves into emotionally intense scenes with no preparation and ending up frightened, confused and uncomfortable.

tl;dr, if you think 50 shades is a good representative of BDSM you are too unprepared and naive to get into BDSM.

Shield of Henry II of France, France, ca. 1555.

The battle scene at the center is thought to depict the victory of Hannibal and the Carthaginians over the Romans in Cannae in 216 B.C., which here could be interpreted as an allusion to the struggle of France against the Holy Roman Empire during the sixteenth century. In the strapwork borders are the intertwined letters: H for Henry II (reigned 1547–59); C for Catherine de Médicis, his queen; and possibly also D for Diane de Poitiers, his mistress. Interspersed with the initials are crescents, the king’s personal badge and a reference to the moon goddess Diana and her namesake Diane de Poitiers.

schizzar:

Get ready for a somewhat angry rant about the traditional book and new media, because Schizzar is taking a class that has made him very upset. So to start with, this class is called “What is a book?” So far, we have read pieces on how people learn to read, the science behind it, and how society has moved from oral culture, to written culture, to print culture, and now moving into the digital culture. My professor has taken the stance that none of these societies are inherently good or bad and they all have their pluses and minuses and claims to be completely unbiased.

I have learned that this is most certainly not the case (surprise). While some of the class has its fascinating merits, some parts do not, particularly this professor’s idea of ‘real reading’. He has argued through several articles and lecture that the act of real reading is holding a book, feeling the book, and connecting the words with touch. He then argues that reading the same book online in pdf format is a lesser type of reading due to this lack of touch, and thus you are unable to truly engage on a deeper level with the book. 

This is where I call bullshit, and will put the lengthier part of this rant, under a read more.

Porn Actress Exposes Industry: Trafficking in the Porn Industry - The Pink Cross

Elements of Sex Trafficking

Act: Recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons;

Means: Threat or use of force, coercion, abduction, fraud, deception, abuse of power or vulnerability, or giving payments or benefits to a person in control of the victim;

Purpose: Prostitution of others, sexual exploitation, forced labor or services, or slavery.

- From the 2000 UN Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children, ratified by 154 countries. (x)

[Highlighted elements of sex trafficking in the porn industry connect with the examples Lubben gives in this specific gifset, other elements do occur in the porn industry as well].

"The federal Trafficking Victims Protection Act defines the crime of human trafficking as:

A. The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act where such an act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age, or

B. The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.” - (x)

… [P]ersons are trafficked into the international sex trade, often by force, fraud, or coercion. The sex industry has rapidly expanded over the past several decades. It involves sexual exploitation of persons, predominantly women and girls, involving activities related to prostitution, pornography, sex tourism, and other commercial sexual services. The low status of women in many parts of the world has contributed to a burgeoning of the trafficking industry. -
The Victims of Trafficking and Violence Prevention Act (TVPA). TVPA combats trafficking in persons, especially into the sex trade, slavery, and involuntary servitude. It has been reauthorized three times since its initial passage: (x)

THAT IS RAPE

We need to be talking about this and we need to be making sex work safe. No one should be made to feel like this treatment is okay.

This is why I’m so porn industry critical. And everyone who pretends there is nothing going on is fooling themselves. I used to be addicted to porn, My sexual abuser introduced hardcore pornography to me at such a young age, it really fucked me up. I was literally having to watch the most degrading and disgusting shit to get off and it was depressing the fuck out of me. I told myself that the girls were consenting adults in order to make myself feel better. But more often than not, that simply is not true and consent can often be dubious within the porn industry. Please think about what you’re supporting when you watch certain online porn. There are indie porn makers and female pornographers who are not sex trafficking, manipulating, abusing, and harming women and teens. You just really have to look.

Marvel-Avengers 2 Posters

*faints*

First one is a bit disconcerting.

*dies*

Look at that  second one! He has the tesseract in hand, Iron Man’s helmet under his foot, and Captain America’s shield and Abraham Lincoln’s head is below the Lincoln memorial. Also, Lincoln’s memorial words are broken in half.

Welp, there goes freedom

These are literal perfection I cannot wait for this movie.

holy shit Mjolnir is at his feet too

I am bursting with excitement for this movie and the last poster gives me hope that it won’t be completely tragic

buckyoubucky - Amazingly, these are fan posters

Sorry to burst everyone’s hopeful bubble, but we can’t read anything into these ones. *sigh*

"And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard." - "Why Don’t the Unemployed Get Off Their Couches?" and Eight Other Critical Questions for Americans (via seriouslyamerica)

Guys this is an actual issue. We had Hartz collars for my dog and he kept having seizures. one seizure he had on the stairs and fell backwards down the stairs, and he also stop breathing from these seizures. When I found out about Hartz causing this I took it off my dog and he hasn’t had a seizure since. And he used to have one at least every few months. DON’T USE HARTZ.
