50 Shades of Gaaaahhh!

God lord, people! Where has all of our kinky pride gone? Are we really going to let some fluffy little twit who writes vampire fan fiction become the voice of BDSM in America?


Have we lost our collective minds?

Now please don't think I'm condemning this pile of drivel without reading it--- I managed to get through 3 whole pages of the Amazon preview before my head exploded.

Are we really supposed to believe that in this digital age little miss reluctant interviewer has never heard of Google?

Oh please! She's sitting there with her phone in her hand in his waiting room and supposedly dying of curiosity, but she doesn't try to seach for a picture of the elusive Mr. Grey???...What, do they not have mobile internet in Canada or something?

Now if she'd searched and not been able to find a single picture then that would build some intrigue, forshadowing his um... eccentricities.

But her not even trying to look just makes her seem like an idiot.

And speaking of those eccentricities, what is up with that? Do we really need the "kinky people are all crazy" stereotype reinforced YET AGAIN?

Why can't mainstream media/pop culture every portray us as normal, healthy human beings?

Before you go raving about/praising/promoting this book ask yourself if the image it promotes is really how you want your friends and family to see you.

I certainly don't.

Sorry, but I don't think Ms. James really did us any favors here.

then again I could be wrong....
