So "Fifty Shades of Grey” was the box-office winner this past weekend. But who are the losers?
The actress interviewed in Sunday’s TNT said the movie was “tasteful and artfully done.” I do not intend to see the movie, but I know the losers are victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, and there’s nothing tasteful or artful about it.
I am so proud of my 27-year-old friend who posted this on Facebook: "I have worked with women who are dating or married to a Christian Grey, I have filled out restraining orders with them, and some of them I have taken to the hospital. Violence against women is not sexy. It is violence. Tell the entertainment industry that by not spending your money to watch it on the big screen."
Then she invited readers to boycott the movie and send $50 to their local shelter for victims of domestic violence or sexual assault. My check is in the mail to Olympia’s Safeplace. How about joining in?
