My reaction to "Fifty Shades Of Grey"

Oh Hi!

So I recently watched Fifty Shades of Grey to see what the hype was about and I also wanted to see if I agreed with the bad reviews it had got. So I grabbed some popcorn and was ready to watch a 2 hour long movie with a bad storyline.
I live-texted all my reactions to Jade so I thought instead of writing a whole blogpost I'd just put the screenshots of that conversation here. I blurred out the curse words but not the ones in quotes (did that make sense?). Also yes, Jade is "My Wifeee" on my phone.
Read these from top to bottom, the picture on the left before the picture on the right! I should also add that these might be a little confusing as Jade and I often tend to have multiple conversations going on at the same time so one discussion is in one text and the other discussion is in another text. However the most important things I think you will still understand.















































I want to add that I personally don't support this kind of abuse. As Jade said; there's a difference between being dominant and being abusive and I found Christian Grey to be extremely abusing, physically and mentally. While this is all a movie and all made up, someone might be in a similar situation and seeing this movie might make them think that it's perfectly normal to be in a relationship like this one and that's why I don't want to support this movie. Please know your worth. BDSM isn't anything wrong in itself, just know when it's domination and when it's abuse. Be safe, know your worth. And please don't romanticize abusive relationships. They're nothing to strive for.


(Please also note that I use a lot of sarcasm in my texts and some of my texts might be a little confusing, however I mean nothing rude with any of them, I just personally felt that way when watching the movie)
