Anyone who buys the “Fifty Shades of Gray” books or goes to see the movie owes Ray Rice an apology.
You’ll have to forgive me. I don’t usually go on rants but I’m going to make a rant exception.
What’s up? On one hand media moguls pile on people like Ray Rice for beating their girl friends. Don’t get me wrong. Someone needs to pile on men like this. Maybe worse.
But, these same media moguls offer us the saga of a man who emotionally and spiritually dominates and abuses an innocent young lady. And everyone runs out to buy it or see it.
And we kind of know it’s wrong, but “it’s innocent you see.”
Yeah, it’s the emotional/spiritual equivalent of hitting your girlfriend in an elevator.
In our society we say, “Ray Rice” and everyone bares their teeth. We say, “Fifty Shades of Gray,” and everyone giggles naughtily like a little one who has swiped cookies before lunch.
Let me ask you a question. What would you do if you knew someone was treating your daughter like that? Or your future wife?
