    Would Fifty Shades Darker Fans consider a deal to greatly-diminish the hate-hype against it?

    I asked this question in the forum; but apparently I didn't ask it right - and it has gotten out of hand. And I didn't make this offer. *I* will DELETE ALL of my hubs AND my blogs on the topics of BOTH The Twilight Saga and Fifty Shades of Grey IF fans will help 'get a message' out about the misleading abusive aspects of it IN YOUR OWN WAY. The reason is because of all the misogynistic hate-hype AND to help inform fans who need it (not everyone is safely married and knows everything) can SEE where the abuse in the storyline is - and be safer. If fans were to inform other fans - GOOD publicity.

    Wow. You're not gonna let this thing go, are you?

    It's a MOVIE. If you don't like it, don't watch it (or don't read the books). Stop trying to "save" everyone.

    Thanks. Just what I expected. Sorry, I'm not trying to save everyone - just on a mission that most people apparently cannot comprehend. This is not a subject that I will drop until something changes surrounding it for the very good reasons I have stated in so many ways. Why? Because its all so wrong. Yeah, worldwide bullying and leaving clueless fans to believe what they believe about these books without informing them of the truth is wrong. It doesn't have to be a big hate campaign - like you know what is coming with the Darker and Freed movies. It could even be done in a 'humorous' or fun way - it does not have to be a big, heavy deal. Its just information that can protect. Sorry, I'm not going to apologize for that. I've read one too many, 'Women LIKE to fantasize about being raped' from men out there over this movie. If you can't see the harm in things like that and don't care about it - then don't and move on. Obviously, your answer would be no to this question. wink

    With 50 Shades of Grey, it would be the whole dominant/submissive thing, and the whips and chains and stuff.  However, it is important to point out that Anastasia pretty much brought everything on herself.  Christian made it very clear when they met who he was and what he was into, and what to expect in a relationship with him.  He told her research erotic stuff and even sent her a contract explaining what would happen!  It was her decision to sign it and engage in a relationship with him.  She could have said no.  Christian's behavior is not indicative of most men.  But he laid it out for her. 

    As for Twilight, I don't really see any issue there.  Again, Bella goes with what works for her.  She has to be protected because Edward was a whole lot stronger than her, and when the adversaries approached, Bella would not have been able to defend herself.  Besides, it was not just Edward who helped, but the entire Cullen clan.  In the last movie/book, when Bella becomes a vampire, she changes from an innocent human who is unsure of herself into a confident woman, because she grows up pretty quickly with having Renesmee, and also because she inherits the vampire's strength.  She was pretty strong in the first Breaking Dawn, standing up for herself and insisting on having the baby.  Edward and Bella's relationship was pretty much based on mutual respect.  He respected her, and she him.

      Thanks Lolita, that is pretty much a fan opinion of both of these books - and its a whitewashed wall. There is a lot more to it than that.

      I don't think so.  Anastasia chose to put herself in that position.  It wasn't like Christian was different and then changed, or forced her to be treated that way.  She allowed it, because she was insecure and naive.  Not all women are strong.

      Yes, there is. I've written entire blogs and hubs about it - there is much more that people are conveniently brushing off or they didn't realize what happened with The Twilight Saga to inspire Fifty Shades. Real literary negligent reasons exist.

    Before you can help other people you must help yourself.

    After you talk to a psychiatrist to work out and get over your obsession with these books and movies you can try to warn people about romantic rape and abuse.  You're trying to cover up your obsession by telling people you care about the potential for harm.  It's a lie you're telling yourself over and over to make it okay for you to continue to obsess over Twilight and Fifty Shades.

    Is there also some professional jealousy at play?  Many wannabe and struggling authors of YA, fantasy, and erotica hate Stephenie Meyer and Erika James because they are millionaires despite not being very good writers.  How much of your obsession is due to envy?  Again, talk to a psychiatrist to work this out.  Also consider taking some vitamin D and St. John's wort supplements.

      STOP telling me about me mental health when you are obviously  so clueless about these subjects - as many people are. No all. Again, I am NOT ALONE in this opinion. If I could report you I would - this is the LAST comment about 'my head' to stay.
