How Dungeons and Dragons is endorsing the darkest parts of the RPG community

Three weeks ago the 5th edition of Dungeons and Dragons came out. D&D is the iconic tabletop role playing game, so a new edition is a big deal. It’s one of the few times that the small, insular pen and paper community gets noticed by the rest of the world. Many game websites have talked about it, notably Polygon’s piece on gender inclusive language. Yet at the same time as D&D tries to appeal to those outside the gender binary, it has been driving them away by employing two of the most toxic personalities in tabletop gaming.

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 

I read an entire chapter-by-chapter write-up of the entire series, and what I saw was nothing less than a gross misrepresentation of BDSM culture and practice. It was absolutely disgusting, and it’s not surprising that, like the book it was initially a fanfiction of, Twilight, it romanticizes stalking, manipulation, and abuse (on top of just being a horrendously boring book).

Now, if FSoG got your motor running, then…well, I can’t say shit about that. You’re going to get off to what you get off to. I know plenty of folks that get off to shit they recognize is either not-so-sexy or pretty unhealthy in real life, myself included. But therein lies the key distinction: we recognize that our fantasies are unhealthy in practice. This book presents stalking, willing ignorance of limits and consent, and mental and emotional abuse as sexy, totally normal aspects of BDSM lifestyles. Critics of the obvious abuse rampant throughout the series are derided as people who don’t understand BDSM, even when the most outspoken critics are experienced BDSM practitioners themselves.

I’m all for people becoming more interested in exploring their sexuality, but not when that awakening comes from such an egregious source as FSoG.
