Honestly can’t wait for the 50 shades movie to normalize the manipulation of lower-level female employees. Can’t wait for the new wave of “consent is sexy” banners on the cover of cosmo. Can’t wait for teen girls to think that a controlling relationship is romantic. Can’t wait for sexualized violence to become increasingly mainstream. And most of all, I can’t wait for BDSM to be labeled a feminist revolution.

People will do anything to stop being lonely - just as people will do anything to stop suffocating…That is the great American disease, which is so easily exploited by cynical people. It’s loneliness. It is unbearable.
