BDSM for Kids @NBCOlympics

Last night the kids were up watching figure skating when the new 50 Shades movie trailer came on.    I stood there astonished as the words “50 Shades” flashed on the screen of an otherwise innocuous-looking trailer, but since it started out clean I hoped they’d manage to skip the BDSM visuals and leave the kids in the dark about what the movie was really about.  Nope.  No such luck.  Nice.  Good ol’ family viewing.

And before NBC gets all “but it was after 10!” for goodness sakes if you are broadcasting the Olympics, people are going to stay up and watch.  We shouldn’t have to tell our kids that it’s abuse-hour on the Olympics and they don’t get to watch.

Worth reading, via Fight the New Drug:

Folks: You can’t have #MeToo and fetishize abuse at the same time.  If you had any doubt about where NBC stands on sexual abuse, now you know.  They ran their ad taking their stand last night during the Olympics.
