I've recently stumbled upon a Christian cartoonist named "Adam4d." Most of his comics are majorly ignorant or simply misinformed yet there is one that is just so purely asinine I have to share it. It's the one comic about the 50 Shades of Grey, movie. In this comic demonstrates how he does not understand how someone can be a normal person and enjoy sex.
The comic (shown to the left) has one woman who explains that she thinks the film is abusive to women, it's against god, and that she feels the movie is just "big screen porn for ladies." Next to her is a drooling -supposedly non Christian woman- Fifty Shades fan. She has fantasies of living the way Anastasia does in the film and and speaks in text form. Below this there is an arrow to the Christian saying "According to popular culture, this lady is the one with the unrealistic and unhealthy view toward women and sexuality."
Adam could not be anymore wrong with this comic. The argument the Christian has is excusable except for when she claims that the fictional story degrades women. The books/film is a depiction of sexual fantasies that many women have. Those women -and men- are not drooling ingrates they're functional human beings. They do not think sexual abuse to anyone is okay. If you enjoy being dominated, or being the one to dominate, that's okay as long as it's agreed upon by both parties. Consent is what is forgotten in this comic. There is consent in Fifty Shades meaning that there is no violence against women in it at all. The whole story is just about two people having consensual sex and that's literally it. No violence and nothing unhealthy except those who hate on those who enjoy safe BDSM.
That's basically all this comic is. Adams hate of those who like to have a different form of sex than Adam. A form of hate I will never understand. Why does it offend you so much that someone enjoys a rated R film about two people having a type of sex you don't? If it's because of your religion then just don't watch or support it. You don't have to criticize people who do enjoy that type of sex or that movie. I also have to ask you something Adam, why the fuck does it make someone dumb if they like sex? All humans like sex in some form. It's the most basic form of human need and want. God didn't leave a tutorial on how to have sex, he only left some rules such as don't do it while she's on her period and if she doesn't scream for help loud enough when being raped kill her, because you know the Bible is not violent to women in the least.
