During the 2012 Presidential campaign we sure did get an earful about the War on Women. Then recently with the SCOTUS decision in favor of Hobby Lobby the chant has come up again. Now the latest attack is the premier of a movie where a man abuses and mistreats a woman and every body is up in arms…
to buy tickets to go see it!
Excuse me, but WTF?! This is Weird, True, AND Freaky.
Welcome to the REAL War on Women.
As a woman I want to be cherished, adored, and respected by the man in my life. I would never allow someone to hurt me in any way, shape, or form even with a safe word.

[quote]A man who gives you everything you want romantically to get everything he wants sexually is a manipulator. That is not love, and it is not sexy. I’m disturbed by the lack of any sort of feminist backlash. While I know my thoughts on porn will likely differ from my non-religious friends, at least women’s self-respect should matter. We are the women who said we didn’t like being draped across cars in 1980’s music videos, but this “literature” is better somehow? Sad. It’s female porn, and for any who think porn is bad for men (and I agree with that), consider the effects of this sort of thing on your own psyche.[/quote]
I couldn’t agree more. In fact, I wish I had thought to write this first.
OK, maybe I am being a bit of a fuddy duddy. After all, as this video from a Planned Parenthood office shows, “…It’s very common to experiment with different things,” including “being tied up” and “whipped” and “the baby thing, where they will put on diapers[.] Some girls like being “spanked,” “hit,” or “whipped,” said the counselor.
By the way, she isn’t talking to an adult. She is talking to a 15 year old girl.

Back to Sarah’s stance about how Feminists aren’t up in arms over this latest attack in the War on Women. My foster-mom was a founding Feminist. She eschewed marriage because she did not want to be dependant on a man and she certainly did not want to be a mother. Her ideal was doing what she wanted, when she wanted, how she wanted, without anyone being dependant on her. She strived to be able to do her job as well, even better, than any man could.
She did not want to be seen as a sex object and dressed modestly. She wanted to be seen as a human first and foremost.
Why did she become a foster-parent? Because she wanted to teach other young ladies how to be better women.
She saw the rise of pornography among men and was disgusted. Why couldn’t men just keep their pants on and control themselves? What disturbed her more was the rise of women reading romance novels and having a porn collection of their own. For her, sex was between two consenting adults, in the privacy of their bedroom, and not out for public display. Looking at pictures, or reading about it, was inviting others into that relationship and that was a form of disrespect.
I wish I could say she was against these things because of her Christianity. She was after all an ordained minister. It never got that far because as soon as you thought of someone else, in any way, you were disrespecting them and yourself and the commitment of a relationship.
If you still don’t understand that this movie, or any kind of pornography, or books, or pictures, about sex is porn and adultery than let my friends over at PlanetMommyhood explain it. These ladies have four reasons that “50 Shades of Grey” is a real WMD (Women Mow Down) in the real War on Women.
I really like Matt Walsh’s response the best, even if he is a… man.

Not one ticket.[/quote]
Amen and Hallelujah!
No, I will not be watching, or reading, “50 Shades of Grey” or any other novel/magazine/book/picture/movie/video that portrays people not following God’s commandments or abusing others. I have had enough pain and abuse in my life, I do not need to invite any more in.
Thank you very much.
