Letting Life Lead
First, let me say I’ve read my fair share of smut and even read a few things that I really wish I hadn’t, but for the most part I don’t usually need to read or watch something in its entirety to judge when something is off. I don’t need to see the Human Centipede to determine that it’s shock garbage. Reading the synopsis and recaps was enough to put me off my lunch, and I’m a fan of horror. I don’t need fighting genius to determine that boob shaped armor is a Bull’s Eye to a killing blow. Twilight is not horror; Fifty Shades is not a love story. Period. I find it exceedingly disturbing that it is marketed that way, though I couldn’t really put my finger on the right words to convey it. Kristen from Warrior Writers hit in on the head for me Does Fiction Matter? Society and Social Change.
