50 shades is squicky and weird and I have a lot of problems with it but a) the sex will be diluted from what’s in the book because it’s a major studio film b) 50 shades was literally twilight fanfiction, did u boycott all those movies too? they were also problematic and abusive C) not paying for a movie doesn’t like, work that way, it doesn’t punish the person who wrote the book and optioned the rights. It doesn’t mean it “opens doors” for more abusive BDSM in films. “secretary” is a cult classic and that didn’t pave the way for bdsm, right? Like, I get that there are so many things to detest about 50 shades and I swear I’m right there with you, but what actually happens when women-directed films are huge successes at the box office is that we get more women directing films.
