Not only did I read the series, but I saw the movie as well. I don't think that makes me a bad lesbian, it makes me a fair one. I believe anybody should have the right to find love - straight, gay or lesbian. A lot of people hated the movie by saying it's abusive both physical and emotional. They are the same people who admit they haven't read the books. The books fill in the gaps that the movie leaves. The movie was ... Interesting and did follow the book. As a writer, I read the popular culture books because they are popular for a reason and I want to know why. I can appreciate a bestseller as I would love to have one of my own.
For the record, I loved the Harry Potter series but that doesn't mean I'm not a Christian or that I am into witchcraft. I love fiction. I love imagination. The whole world does. If you didn't like 50 shades, that's okay, too. It's all a matter of taste. I've been working on a book that dabbles into S&M somewhat and that world is fascinating to me. I have led a sheltered life. It doesn't mean that I am into it, but if others are, so be it. I like to write about things that are new and interesting. It's a chance to educate myself.
So don't worry about the movie. Don't stress about the meaning of it. Hey, I loved Star Wars and so many people thought it was anti-Christian. I survived it, I still know right from wrong and I freaking love R2D2!
