I do want to make it clear that in no way shape or form am I defending stalking,abusive behaviour etc etc-even if it's in a fictional book with the 'Oh so drop dead gorgeous isn't he just the best thing since sliced bread no real man will ever match him Christian Grey'...or so we are led to believe!.
I just found parts of the blog to be a little full on,I feel we could pick a fair few films apart and say..'Well impressionable young girls will see that',for example..Pretty Woman..Julia Roberts character is a prostitute-she stands on a street corner and gets picked up by the super wealthy Richard Gere and is whisked off to posh Beverley Hills hotels and he falls in love with her-My point was that I think women will be able to separate fact from fiction,women didn't think..Well that could be me,I'll become a hooker.
It is as I said before badly written,I would hope those seeing it and then thinking of exploring the lifestyle would do their research.
I did compare it to my own situation,perhaps I shouldn't of but that's my reference,certainly I never experienced any controlling behaviour in the first few months,nothing to suggest I should leg it-it never entered my mind,I was allowed out,I could dress how I wanted etc etc,the control was brought in gradually and then the physical abuse started.
I'm not going to ramble on,just I saw in chat yesterday a reference about 'Defending a book that shows controlling abusive behaviour'-that kind of upset me as I never would,I've lived the hell and would never defend it,what I am 'defending'(for want of a better word) is the fact that I personally have separated the fact from the fiction,and I hope that others would too.Will there be young girls who get themselves caught up?-maybe,but I think the majority of women who see it won't have the romanticised version of Christian Grey in their heads-I hope so anyway.
Am I going to see it?,yes..Because I want to see Jamie Dornan with his kit off....
And finally Ingy...If I've upset you I apologise,that was never my intention. xx
