This shit NEEDS to be stopped. I am sorry, E L James has fucking inspired the worst SHIT in the history of the universe. I took these pictures myself today and these were not in the sexy adult section they were in the section with the normal costumes and shit, where teens and kids would get costumes.
E L James already is promoting dangerous sex practices with her books under the guise of it being BDSM and it’s nowhere near that. If that wasn’t bad enough she’s promoting a very VERY abusive relationship as ROMANTIC and even worse? She is BANKING off of basically selling people Twilight for a second time.
I could forget the last two things if I didn’t constantly hear 16-19 year old girls crying about how they will never find their sexually sadistic and incredibly abusive boyfriend Christian Grey because PERFECT MEN like that DON’T EXIST. Yeah they do they are in FUCKING JAIL you STUPID FAN GIRLS!
You don’t want a Christian Grey. He didn’t care about Ana he cared about HURTING someone and I mean ANYONE to get off. He’s an abusive, sadistic, psychopathic, asshole. And seeing stuff like this makes me want to puke. E L James knows NOTHING about BDSM not one THING and I am not the only one who knows this. Ask professional Dom/Dommes or subs they will tell you the same GOD DAMN THING.
I had half a mind to start screaming about this in the store and making them move the display somewhere else. Ask someone in the BDSM lifestyle and who had to go through training to get where she was and learn safety and rules and first aid JUST IN CASE bad shit happened (And bad shit DID happen I saw it happen) what she is doing is VERY dangerous. People are looking at it like a HOW TO book and a HUGE audience for it is stupid teenage girls who think Christian Grey is some sort of romantic hero.
PLEASE speak up about this shit! I am not a prude I am someone who doesn’t want to watch her world taken over by bimbo fan girls who equate romance to getting beaten and tortured to shit because some guy they think is hot wants to do it to them. Just DO SOMETHING!
No fact checking necessary.
Okay, while I agree with some of this, please, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, if anyone out there objects to a display like this do NOT start screaming in the store. Do NOT take it out on the staff.
Spirit is a subsidiary of Spencers, a company that my wife worked for. For half a painful decade. The company sells some bullshit stuff, sexist, borderline racist, moronic, poorly thought out shit. And I assure you, the people working there would change it if they could. But they are not allowed to. And they will be punished by the corporate office if they move it.
Every display in a store like that is there because of a floor plan that comes direct from the corporate office, and if someone strays from that plan, their life will be made a living hell. This is not a good company to work for, and customers making a fuss over something the staff literally cannot do ANYTHING ABOUT doesn’t make it any easier.
If you do have a problem with this, get in touch with the corporate office. Don’t mention it to the staff. Explain to the corporation why this is disgusting, why this is a problem, and try to keep the individual stores out of it. Pllllleeeeaaaase. I implore you. Jobs are scarce, and a lot of the time people have to flog (no pun intended) stupid crap that they don’t agree with in order to make ends meet.
Don’t make it harder on them!
