This weekend sees the opening of the movie Fifty Shades of Grey based on the book of the same name. If you are tempted to go see what all the hype is about then do some reading first.
From the National Catholic Register:
Amid an era marked by increased awareness of sexual assaults on college campuses, and growing concerns about the sexual trafficking of women in the United States and across the globe, Layden and other experts said the film appeared to rationalize, rather than condemn, such activity.
Dr. Miriam Grossman, a child and adolescent psychiatrist who has seen her blog “A Parent’s Survival Guide to Fifty Shades of Grey” go viral on the Internet, argues that the film will sow confusion about what constitutes a morally sound, emotionally healthy sexual relationship.
“The title, Fifty Shades of Grey, says it all: it suggests everything in relationships is grey, instead of certain things being black and white,” Grossman told the Register.
