NO NO NO NO NO!!!! PPLZ!!! THIS IS NOT HOW YOU DO FEMINISM!!!

http://www.latimes.com/features/books/jacketcopy/la-jc-british-charity-calls-for-50-shades-of-grey-book-burning-20120823,0,5503067.story

A British DV agency wants to have a book burning of 50 shades of grey because it promotes the idea that abusive relationships are healthy.

WTF!? >:O

Book burnings are not okay just b/c you don't like the book!

Really? THIS is the symbolic thing you chose!? Given ALL THE HISTORY OF BOOK BURNINGS!?

There are other ways to make your point (also 50 shades of grey is merely the most currently popular example of our society romanticizing abusive relationships, it didn't invent the narrative, also it's porn, it's erotic fantasy)

  1. Some joke about this coming up next time someone wants to make a Feminazis statement here.

    Really this is mind boggling, while 50 Shades is clearly the best selling horrible romance novel of our time - it's certainly not the only shitastic work of it's kind in the mainstream market.

    That and with the ability to get your ebooks published for free on Amazon etc, book burning as a statement that works should be destroyed is kind of a pointless statement anyway since the rate of production can easily exceed the rate of destruction.

    It's really only good if you want a publicity statement that compares you to the bad guys from the World War II games.
