While studying at Oxford University, I woke up to find myself being sexually assaulted. That’s why I want an honest and open debate about women’s services, without being accused of rhetorical “violence”.

In this province half of all women over the age of 15 will experience sexual or physical violence in their lifetime. So this Valentine's Day, why not help end the violence, rather than support a film that glamourizes and normalizes it?

Okay, I'm never going to read or watch this, but from the description at http://www.theatlantic.com/features/archive/2015/02/consent-isnt-enough-in-fifty-shades-of-grey/385267/ it's much worse than I imagined. I didn't realise how far from consensual sex it is. Which leaves me wondering why it's do popular. My best guess is that when you're reading or watching, it can be a thrilling fantasy, as you're not actually giving up control. Experiencing it would be a different thing entirely.
But the average reader isn't getting the nuances of that.

Well played Grandma, well played.
Mum posted a reminder on facebook today that not only is this weekend the festival of Imbolc and St. Brigit's day but that it is also the source of her mother's middle name. My maternal grandmother was born in 1914 on January 31st. Custom in Ireland at that...
