"And once you’ve won, once you’re king of the mountain, what happens to his mind?"


#this quote is very very interesting in many ways and speaks volumes about both of these characters wow #because here’s loki assuming all kinds of things about natasha #expecting her to be this soft sentimental thing and basing his entire interaction with her off of this assumption #and then here’s natasha who knows it’s never so simple between her and clint #because regardless of what you think their relationship is #it’s always going to be more than either love OR a debt between them#because clint didn’t just spare her life #he GAVE IT BACK TO HER #he looked at her and saw enough in her to let her live and don’t you think natasha probably thinks about this every day? #that a perfect stranger was able to see something in her worth saving? #that under her hardened shell and all that red in her ledger there was someone human and valuable and worthy of better things? #because I do #because I think natasha thinks about that a lot and tries to do good by the world #tries to do good by /clint/ #because she wants so much to prove that she was worth it #that she can be a person who deserves this second chance #so when loki asks her ‘is this love’ she’s laughing inside #because he’s naive enough to think that all this between her and clint could ever be boiled down to just that #because he assumes that in her world the two concepts are mutually exclusive when there are so many overlapping layers #but natasha is playing the game that loki is offering #and because he expects things to be black and white she offers black and white

What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?

50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.

It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.

While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.

Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it. 

It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.

REBLOG FOREVER.

Boycott this fucking movie, for the love of god. These kinds of ideas are dangerous and set us back as a society 

If you want an in-depth breakdown about everything that is wrong with the book/series without reading it yourself, erotica author Jenny Trout did a pretty good chapter-by-chapter sporking of all three books
