Politically correct film makers sanitized "50 shades of Grey": the heroine never submits, never surrenders. Movie heroine Anastasia Steele never enjoys the book’s spanking orgasm with Ben Wa Balls. She endures the climactic final heavy "six of the best" strokes out of morbid curiosity and stubbornness, not not out of submission. Anastasia Steele then immediately assumes the empowered feminist role, blames pervert Christian Grey and commands him to back off and not touch her.
50 shades of Grey vanilla is a politically correct bore
50 shades of Grey is the deconstruction of dominance and submission. Rather "the heroine is tasked with transforming him from a tortured control freak and into a regular boyfriend ", says Slate. A feminist empowered Anastasia that does not submit to Christian Grey’s dominance.

All this feminist anti-submission PC results in a bore, described by USAToday: "Sitting through the turgid and tedious S&M melodrama that is Fifty Shades of Grey may feel like its own form of torture." A movie flop that earns a paltry 3.4/10 on IMDb.
Even the pinnacle of political correctness, Huff Post cannot but state a huge list of differences Movie vs. book.  
"Fifty Shades," which was greenlighted by a woman (Universal Studios chief Donna Langley), directed by a woman (British filmmaker and photographer Sam Taylor-Johnson), based on a book by a woman (James), from a script by a woman (Kelly Marcel), seeks to revive a genre that has gone limp. LA Times

BDSM dominant men must keep hiding in the closet
Submission and rape are frequent fantasies of women  .
A handsome young heart throb filthy rich billionaire CEO with excellent people skills, a man that is most women’s wet dream, he can not find a willing submissive woman? Rather he has to put up with Anastasia’s resistance and her attempts to change him!?
Gays became a protected class, and thus can come out of the closet. Radical feminist like Valerie Solanas can promote violence against men. But dominant men with a sadistic streak must keep in hiding. Lest feminist boycott would ruin his business. Remember Dominique Strauss-Kahn.
Soldiers in boot camp, war, must submit to obedience, pain and humiliation
Soldiers routinely have to walk for days and nights, with bleeding blistered feet, sit in ice cold lakes. Boot camp pushes a recruit to his or her physical and mental limits. Without questioning and hesitation soldiers must obey, shoot, kill, and obediently run into a hail of deadly bullets. Often soldiers sign away their rights voluntarily (with no "yellow" or "red" safe word, with no right to back out!). For millennia most men had no choice; draft was mandatory. In the US men still must report to selective service to be ready for any potential future draft.
Making such a big fuzz about voluntarily signing an obedience contract with medium, non life threatening pain, is a sign of coddled feminist entitlement and female privilege  42 43 44 45 46 47.
Still not tame enough for feminists

Fifty Shades glamorizes sexual violence, implying that women seek to be controlled. What goes on between consenting adults on equal footing is one thing, but the power imbalance here is striking,
A 27 year old CEO billionaire man can only have sex with an equally old CEO female billionaire. Otherwise, there is a power imbalance. Feminist rules prescribe what men and women are allowed to do
especially given that Fifty Shades and its two sequels were written by a middle-aged woman. Another woman, Sam Taylor-Johnson, directed the film and a female screenwriter, Kelly Marcel, faithfully adapted the novel to the screen. In the wake of rising rates of sexual assault on college campuses, in the military and elsewhere, it’s disturbing that the story features the naive but well-educated Anastasia seeking to overcome her aversion to being abused, degraded and isolated just to please her man.

There’s an interesting tension right now between the mainstreaming of S&M that Fifty Shades represents and also the mainstream horror at rape culture,” said Amy Adler, a law professor at New York University who focuses on obscenity law and feminist theory. “There’s an increasing vigilance against rape culture on the one hand and the easy acceptance of pornographic S&M [on the other].”
In the wake of numerous allegations of rape on college campuses—at Princeton, UNC Chapel Hill, the University of Michigan, and many more—school administrators, students, sexual-assault-prevention advocates, policymakers, and more have been having important conversations about what constitutes consent. The “legal contract that is signed in Fifty Shades of Grey—it’s kind of [the model of] what a lot of affirmative-consent people are looking for,” said Adler. “Maybe we should have written, contracted-for sexual exchanges on campus in order to avoid the messiness and possibility of error that could result in rape.” The Atlantic
Fifty Shades is far from the first book series to include either explicit sex or BDSM. The late 18th-, early 19th-century novels of the Marquis de Sade (the namesake of the word "sadism") depicted explicit, violent sex scenes. In 1870, Leopold von Sacher-Masoch (the namesake of "masochism") wrote about a dominant/submissive relationship in his novel, Venus in Furs. The Story of O, a French erotic novel published in 1954, depicts a young girl who enters into a submissive sexual relationship with a domineering film director; it was later made into a movie, just like Fifty Shades. And in the world of romance novels, the author Anne Rice wrote her three Sleeping Beauty books under a pseudonym in the early 1980s, about an imaginary medieval world where the main character, Beauty, is trained as a submissive sex slave.

E.L. James’ trilogy of erotic novels — essentially a Cinderella story with spanking — has sold more than 100-million copies worldwide. The tale of a virginal college student swept away by a kinky billionaire industrialist has already offended cultural conservatives for its explicit sexuality, irked feminists for what some consider a portrait of an abusive relationship and even annoyed practitioners of erotic bondage and sadomasochism, who feel "Fifty Shades" depicts their lifestyle as a mental illness.

2 thoughts on “50 Shades of Grey: Politically Correct Boredom”
I only read parts of the first book. Namely the pages which contained the most controversial interactions. Fifty shades of grey is barely about bdsm (bondage, discipline, domination, submission, sadism, masochism). Granted exploring every detail of bdsm would make for a very lengthy book or film and would require the full spectrum of tops (dominants) and bottoms (submissives). Male and female, female and male, female and female, male and male, transgender and (well you get the idea)….Anyway these elements are not the most interesting shortcomings of either the book or the film. One thing missing from the film says more about political correctness and our discomfort with one key aspect of human reproduction.
In the book Christian and Anastasia have a few conversations about Anastasia’s menstrual period. Then while Anastasia is menstruating Christian has sex with her after removing her tampon. She gets caught up in the sex and briefly forgets that she is menstruating. Later as the two are laying naked together Anastasia says she wants to clean herself up upon remembering that she is having her period and her menstrual flow is getting onto Christian. Though he is not bothered by her menses and asks if she is and she questions if she should be. They end up laying together letting Anastasia menstruate freely.
If the lead up to that and the above interaction were included in as graphic detail as described in the book I can guarantee many people would have freaked out.
