It is all over the media and clogging up all my social networking feeds. That’s right, the 50 Shades of Grey movie is on its way and they have started the hype by releasing a steamy trailer to tantalise all those women eager to get to the cinema to watch it. These are the same women who regularly comment on my posts condemning adult movies and calling men that gravitate towards these types of movies calling them perverts and sleazy.
I know what I am saying here goes against the grain. It goes against everything all those women are talking about after reading the 50 Shades books while relaxing on the beach this summer.
Women of America, and around the world, let me explain why you are TOO GOOD for this movie and why you would be much better just staying at home rather than paying the money to go to the cinema to watch it.
1. Because you are an intelligent woman.
OK I will admit, I have neither read the book or seen the movie but I do know the plot and what it is all about. In planning this article however I did look up a few lines from the book and was unsurprised to read some of the total drivel being shovelled into women’s heads as they read it. Let’s look at a few examples.
“That’s the bottom line. I want to be with him. My inner goddess sighs with relief.”
“Her curiosity oozes through the phone.”
“My scalp prickles as adrenaline and fury lance through my body, all my worst fears realized.”
“My inner goddess is beside herself, hopping from foot to foot.”
COME ON. This is senseless rubbish. Who thinks or talks like this in real life? My inner goddess wants to puke up and my medulla oblongata has recalled its purpose and stopped me from reading any more of this crap.
2. Because you will not be sucked in my the marketing machine
This movie is being made for no other reason then to make money. In my opinion a movie should be a piece of art. Something that can be taken in and enjoyed. Something that leaves you thinking and feeling that you have spent that hour and a half wisely.
This movie doesn’t have a story. It is basically a degrading loveless tale of sex and not a lot else. If that is what you are after, hit a strip club. I will concede that lots of films have been made that are also not very arty or well made but compared to the 50 Shades movie, even Karate Kid comes out looking like Schindler’s List
3. Because you are a Christian
OK so not all my readers are Christian but if you are, let me point you to scripture.
When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures. – Galatians 5:19
But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. – Matthew 5:28 (in this particular case, substitute “man” and “him” with “woman” and “her”)
Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more. – Ephesians 4:19
Most importantly we all need to remember that sex is an act of love. An act of two people giving to each other. If you have been to any weddings, you will likely have heard this beautiful quote from Corinthians
4. Because you are a real woman
Whether or not you are a feminist, I can’t understand how a woman can read a book about a man who physically and mentally dominates a woman and can see it as acceptable.
The book when broken down is basically a “story” of a woman’s adventures being manhandled and emotionally stunted by a stuck up rich dick.
Having said all that, thousands if not millions of women will be flooding to the cinema and to the DVD store to pay to watch this garbage. If enough people go, there will undoubtably be a series of sequels and loads of remakes in the future.
Well rant over for now but have your say on our Facebook page.
