Mrs Bloom responds to Samantha Brick
Samantha Brick made comment on the popular 50 Shades of Grey trilogy - Margot Bloom feels that is un qualified to make these comments.
I have to wonder whether Mrs Brick has actually read all 3 of the Fifty shades of grey books. She has made comment that the books paint women in a negative light - isn't that what she did with her own story not so long ago? Did she not degrade the women that she deemed to be less attractive than herself? After all she is shackled continually to her beauty and the balance of power that it gives her or not as the following article would suggest. She clearly states that Idependance is overrrated and that she submits to her husband in the choices that she makes regarding her appearance.
Had she in fact read all three books, she would have noticed that the heroine of the piece was not a victim, she was very much the stronger of the two characters. She never signed the submissive contract and conducted the relationship on her terms, maintaining her independence and in doing so forced the handsome Mr Grey to question and change his behaviour. By the end of the 3rd book the Greys had worked out their relationship to a degree that as the reader, I was happy to leave them and imagined that they would continue to be happy. This is not something that I can see in Mrs Bricks story, in fact for many women, the relationship that she describes would end in very real abuse.
I will agree with Mrs Brick, as she stated in the recent interview, that women are the heart of the home, but Moral compass? perhaps not, it is my experience that woman can be just as morally corrupt as men, but that usually only relates to a small minority of both sexes. Women are complex beings and very capable of working, keeping their family together and willingly partaking in wanton acts of erotosism.
In conclusion I am not given to idealistic bouts of romanticism nor am I unaffected by the darker sides of bad relationships, so it is without bias that I would suggest that the books are nothing more than an erotic love story that have indeed caught the imagination of women and men from all backgrounds and sexual orientation.
Maybe in a society where we are so open to equality, it should be the men that are handcuffed to the kitchen sink at the heart of the home
50 Shades of Grey is no more that an erotic love story
