Mom Defends her 11-Year-Old Boy’s ’50 Shades of Grey’ Costume

11-year-old sent home from school for Christian Grey costume

ABC News: An 11-year-old boy in Manchester, England, caused a controversy when he showed up to his school’s World Book Day celebration dressed as Christian Grey from the hit book and movie “50 Shades of Grey.”

50shadesAt the Sale High School World Book Day Thursday, students were encouraged to dress up as a character from their favorite book, but Liam Scholes’ “50 Shades of Grey” costume had to be “modified” before he could participate, according to a statement from the school.

Nicola Scholes posted a photo of her son’s outfit on Facebook, showing the boy dressed in a suit and carrying a mask and small cable ties.

Her son’s costume “was lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek,” Scholes told ABC News today.

She wrote earlier on Facebook, “It was that inappropriate that they told him to change his character and wouldn’t include him on any photos.”

Just a "light-hearted" costume for an 11-year-old boy...

Just a “light-hearted” costume for an 11-year-old boy…

“It also required a phone call home regarding the matter,” she added. “Yet it was appropriate for a teacher to dress up as a serial killer and other students to come in with ‘guns.’ I thought Christian Grey was the most talked about book character for the past few years.”

Scholes told BBC Radio 5 Live the school suggested her son change his character to James Bond. “The way I see it, James Bond is a promiscuous character who kills people,” she said.

Sale High School said in a statement, “The school stands by the decision it made yesterday in relation to the costume worn by one of its students to World Book Day. The decision reflects the school’s high standards in terms of student behavior, welfare and safeguarding.

The statement continued, “The student was not excluded from taking part in any of the activities as has been wrongly reported, his costume was modified and he was then able to fully participate and enjoy the day with his peers. The aim of our world book day events was to celebrate and encourage reading and we are disappointed that what was a fantastic day for our students, has been marred by this issue.”

The school declined to say to say how his costume was “modified.”

The “Fifty Shades of Grey” books by E.L. James, which explore Christian Grey’s world of bondage and submission, have sold 100 million copies worldwide.

Sexual “liberation” is a sign of society near its end: The enthrallment with “50 Shades of Grey”

. . . as shown by surging sales of S-M bondage gear as we approach the release date of the revolting Fifty Shades of Grey movie, timed for Valentine’s Day no less.

BDSM gear just screams Valentine's Day. /sarc

These torture devices just scream “Valentine’s Day”! St. Valentine must be weeping….

The movie is based on the book of the same name, Fifty Shades of Grey, an erotic porn novel about bondage, discipline, sadism, masochism (BDSM) written under the pen name of E. L. James by Erika Leonard, a middle-aged British woman who looks like a transvestite.

"E. L. James"

“E. L. James”

The book’s widespread release in 2012 spurred a 7.5% jump in sales of sex-themed products, including toys, videos and books the next year, according to research firm IBISWorld.

In anticipation of the movie’s release, a range of items featured in the movie are increasingly popular in store and online, including leather paddles, blindfolds, horsehair floggers, wrist cuffs, bondage rope and riding crops. The New York Times reports that ben wa balls (Don’t ask me what they are. I have no idea and don’t want to know) in particular, featured in an especially graphic scene in the book, seem to have especially captured readers’ imaginations and money. The openly-homosexual fashion designer Marc Jacobs has also turned to leather, collaborating with the designer Zana Baynem, whose bondage wear is worn by the likes of Beyonce and Lady Gaga.

Sado-masochism (now re-named BDSM for bondage, domination, sadism, masochism) is the perverse deriving of sexual pleasure from inflicting and receiving pain and humiliation.

The psychological profession once deemed S-M a psycho-sexual disorder because a natural instinct of all human beings and all creatures is to avoid pain, but no longer. The current version of the American psychiatric manual DSM-5 excludes consensual BDSM as a diagnosis when the sexual interests cause no harm or distress. One of the profession’s representative, Dr. Joseph Merlino, author and psychiatry adviser to the New York Daily News, said in an interview that a sadomasochistic relationship, as long as it is consensual, is not a psychological problem. Merlino must be unclear on the meaning of folie á deux.

So whip and flail away, and be happy! /sarc

After the book was first published in May 2011, Fifty Shades of Grey became an instant hit. Daily Mail says the bondage book is “credited with rekindling the lives of U.S. women” — which is another way of saying American women have become so jaded by “ordinary” sex, they now turn to the infliction and receiving of pain and humiliation to “jazz up” their sex lives.

The sheeple’s reaction to Fifty Shades of Grey is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg of an increasingly depraved America.

Ever heard of the Southern Decadence Festival?

The festival is one of America’s most notorious celebrations of sodomy, public sex acts, prostitution, drunkenness, and worse. But the Southern Decadence Festival is by no means the only such festival. According to the Autumn Gay Pride Calendar, decadence festivals are held across post-Christian America and Western Europe, as well as in Canada, Brazil, Belarus, Ireland, Scotland, S. Africa, India, Thailand, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, China, and Australia.

Writing for Patriot Action, Linda Kimball laments that:

“The decent, God-fearing, family loving America poignantly captured on canvas by Norman Rockwell is dead, or nearly so. In its place is ancient Carthage, a brash, devil-worshipping, pleasure-seeking, drunken, obscenely libidinous freak-show.”

Carthage, a city in today’s Tunisia, was the capital of the ancient Carthaginian empire, as well as the 4th most important city of the later Roman empire. The ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle considered the city to have one of the best governing institutions in the world, along with those of the Greek states of Sparta and Crete.

By the time of St. Augustine (354-430), Carthage had become depraved and rotten — porn-fueled, sexually obsessed, rampant sexually transmitted diseases, jealousy, suspicion, paranoia, hate, mental illness, sexual sadism, murder and crime. As Augustine wrote in The Confessions of St Augustine, “I came to Carthage, and all around me in my ears were the sizzling and frying of unholy loves.”

By the 5th century, Carthage had fallen to the Vandals; then conquered by Muslims in the 7th century.

In his book, Judaism’s Sexual Revolution: Why Judaism And Then Christianity Rejected Homosexuality, Dennis Prager wrote:

Human sexuality, especially male sexuality…is utterly wild. Men have had sex with women…men…little girls and young boys…a single partner…large groups…immediate family members…animals…inanimate objects…by dressing in women’s garments…through urinating and defecating on each other…by watching other humans be tortured…by fondling children…by looking at pictures of bodies or parts of bodies. Not all have been condoned…but many have, and all illustrate what the unchannelled sex drive can lead to.

The simple truth is that human sexuality needs to be properly channeled. Proper channeling leads to civility, safety, trust, and true social progress. But when the sex genie is unleashed, as is the situation throughout America and the West, things begin to go terribly wrong, as evidenced by the growing plague of public sex acts, serial killers, rapists, sado-masochists, pederasts, pedophiles and other predators preying upon Americans and their children. America has sunk so low that even young children sexually prey on other children. In fact, sex crimes are more frequent and more evil than ever.

In a 2003 book, Sex Related Homicide And Death Investigation, retired NYPD lieutenant commander Vernon Geberth, observed that,

sex related cases I am encountering today (as a consultant) are more frequent, vicious, and despicable than I ever experienced as a homicide cop…. There are more serial killers today.

Geberth recounts case after brutally horrible case wherein the most unspeakable evils are perpetrated upon women, boys, and girls before their lives are snuffed out. Geberth had this to say about sexual fantasies, and how they can become aberrant:

“….development of bizarre sexual images involving grotesque unnatural distortions of sexual imagery…is reinforced through repetition, illustrated by the use of sadistic porn and fantasy stories…(of) sexual sadism. Sadistic fantasies…may involve activities that indicate…dominance…over the victim…. This case involved Cameron Hooker… (whose) fantasy was to dominate and torture nude women…his fantasies were fueled by an extensive collection of hard-core porn.” (pp. 23 and 741)

In his address, “Pornography, Depicted Violence, And Crime,” on March 16, 1991, Richard M. Reade, prosecutor of the State of Victoria, Australia, said that in his opinion, “the serious problem our community faces (is) a result of porn…made freely available.” Reade describes in graphic, horrifying details, a sadistically brutal attack upon a 31 year old woman. On being arrested the sadist said,

“I have been reading books on bondage and I felt a strong urge to act out what was in the books…. I knew it was wrong but couldn’t help myself…. It’s those bondage books…those rotten books!”

[Source: Robert Peters, The Link Between Pornography and Violent Crimes (Free Republic, 2004).]

In his book, The American Sex Revolution, Pitirim Sorokin described the morally depraved, sexually decadent social conditions in the Old Kingdom of Egypt 4,500 years ago, just before its collapse:

“Sexual anarchy assumed extreme forms and spread through a large part of the population. Side by side with an increase of sexual perversions, a shameless sexual promiscuity also greatly increased. They seduced members of the same family. Relations between father and daughter…son and mother…Adultery, rape…prostitution greatly increased…homosexual love entered the mores of the population…all the aberrations of morbid eroticism…unnatural relations, flagellations, and sodomy.” (p. 93)

Does that sound familiar?

St. Augustin’s description of ancient Carthage and Sorokin’s portrait of the decadence of ancient Egypt also depict post-Christian America and the West today.

St. Augustine defined evil to be the absence or privation of good. He warned that “a privation of good…can continue to the point where a thing ceases to exist altogether.”

But I doubt the millions of Americans who will flock to movie theaters for Fifty Shades of Grey will heed his warning.

UPDATE (Feb. 11, 2015):

From USA Today‘s review of the movie 50 Shades of Grey:

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, 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….”

The NFL, Feminism and the War on Women

As the NFL struggles to deal with the Ray Rice domestic violence incident, feminists and liberals have come out in force to decry the violence against women and re-ignite the “War on Women”. The NFL and players have been labeled as sexist, as noted on Huffington Post: “By some tiny amount each one of those things lowers the level of basic human respect for women in sports. And sooner or later, there are so many tiny amounts that the level of basic human respect is gone altogether.”

The NFL has also been labeled as misogynistic according to this feminist, “In addition to the whole ‘One of our teams is named for a racial slur’ thing, the NFL has a culture of sexism bordering on misogyny. There, I said it. And I meant it too. From the cheerleaders for my beloved Oakland Raiders being forced to sue for their pay to the rather ridiculous hygiene rules placed on the Buffalo Bills’ pom-pom wielders, what women have to put up with to be involved with football makes my feminist skin crawl.”

Yet are they selective in their outrage of violence against women and how it is interpreted?

50shadesThe media is promoting the well-celebrated Fifty Shades of Grey – an erotic novel notable for its explicitly erotic scenes featuring elements of sexual practices involving bondage/discipline, dominance/submission, and sadism/masochism. The “mommy porn” book is being made into a movie that has been described as “tasteful and artistic” and a female actress in the movie has said, “It’s going to be beautiful”.

Controversy surrounds the explicit nature of violence in this novel, questioning whether being submissive sexually is not tantamount to being the victim of abuse.

50shades2Of course, liberals deride this opinion and insist that this is a “result of women’s ‘current anxieties about equality’ and that it ‘doesn’t mean that it’s ‘evidence of unhappiness, or an invalidation of feminism,’ …it might actually be a sign of progress that millions of women are so hungrily pursuing sexual fantasies independent of men.” A Huffington Post critic argued that interest in the series was not a trend, but squarely within the tradition and success of the romance category which is driven by tales of virgins, damaged men and submission/dominance themes.

What is not romantic is the spousal abuse that Janay Rice suffered at the hands of her then-fiancée. The feminists and liberals, as warranted, decried this abuse (and the NFL):

 “The NFL’s stance is clear. It is more concerned about making money than it is about holding men accountable for violent and abhorrent behavior toward women.”

This violence (against women) manifests from the culture of sexism in football. From the skimpy, sexualized “uniforms” cheerleaders are forced to wear to the denigrating ads during big games from companies like GoDaddy, the message is clear: Women are objects and it’s OK to use, abuse and disrespect them.

“That is a deal breaker. It should be over. There are things you accept in relationships with people. There are things you accept in partnerships, and on teams. There are things you don’t accept.

“As Americans grow increasingly frustrated with the way National Football League officials handle incidents of violence against women, the country has been engaged in a national conversation about intimate partner violence.”

“This isn’t just a domestic abuse issue. This is an issue of basic human dignity and respect.”

What about human dignity and respect? I’ve wondered why the feminists are not outraged about the violence that women condone –  women who say “yes” to violence. Does “yes” to violence mean it is acceptable? Does it not send a mixed message? How can one reconcile that “human dignity” and “respect” means acceptable levels of violence? Does this consensual violence not perpetuate more violence against women?

You will find acceptable levels of violence against women all over the Internet. Slapping, scratching, choking, and many other acts of violence that women allow to happen to them. Are these examples of things you accept in a relationship or that you don’t (or that you want women to accept)? Below are pictures of consensual violence that I found on the Internet. NOTE: These are some of the most “respectable” pictures I could post here. Pictures considered porn are not suitable to publish here.

I understand the difference between domestic violence and consensual violence between people in the privacy of their bedroom. What concerns me is the perception that consensual violence against women is promoted and celebrated and is considered “empowering”. This sends a confusing message to men (yes, some men are confused by feminists’ objectives) and to the young women of today: How can a young man or woman decry violence against women while at the same time find violence makes them more powerful?

12

2This type of “respect” and “dignity” is prevalent on Tumblr, especially on teens/young women’s pages. Is this what parents want for their children? For their young teen/woman to be seen as a sexual object or to have them give approval to violence against their bodies? It’s a disturbing trend that shows a level of disrespect for women wrapped in the guise of “empowerment” that I would hope people would recognize as a part of the war on women.

My post does not seek to condone any violence against women. If you or someone you know needs help with domestic violence, please call the National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1-800-799-7233.

Herpes virus found on S-M bondage book

In March of last year, I wrote a post “This is why it’s all over for America.”

My Exhibit B was Fifty Shades of Grey, an “erotic” porn novel about bondage, discipline, sadism, masochism written by a mannish-looking 48-year-old British woman under the pen name of E. L. James.

The mannish Erika Leonard, aka E L James (just picture her without the wig and lipstick)

After it was first published in May 2011, the book became an instant hit. Daily Mail says the bondage book is “credited with rekindling the lives of U.S. women.” God help us.

Now we know what sort of people read Fifty Shades of Grey.

Jon David Kahn reports for Breitbart.com, Nov. 15, 2013, that two Belgian university professors submitted the 10 most borrowed books at the Antwerp library to bacteriology and toxicology tests.

Traces of cocaine were found on all 10 books. The traces were small enough that readers would not feel the effects, but significant enough that they could test positive for cocaine.

But the scientists found something other cocaine in the pages of Fifty Shades of Grey:

Traces of the genital herpes virus 

Herpes-virus

Although the professors assured readers that the concentrations of the herpes virus were minimal and that the virus could not be contracted simply by touching the book, I still say “YUCK!”

S-M horror dungeon discovered in Kentucky

How would you like it if I hit you over the head with a hammer?

No? You wouldn’t like it at all?

That’s because it is our universal and instinctual human nature to prefer pleasure over pain and to seek pleasure but avoid pain, just as it is the universal and instinctual nature of all living things to prefer life over death.

Unlike other creatures, however, human beings can become alienated or perverted from our nature so that pain is preferred over pleasure or, in some cases, deriving a strange sort of pleasure from pain. Sadomasochism is an example of that perversion: the giving and/or receiving of pleasure—often sexual—from acts involving the infliction or reception of pain or humiliation.

The so-called sexual revolution in America began in the 1960s and never stopped. With sexual “liberation” came libertinism — the falling away or absence of all moral restraints, which are seen as unnecessary, undesirable, and downright stodgy. But with libertinism also came boredom: ordinary standard sexual practices become less and less titillating. That’s called being jaded. And so, the never-satiated ravenous appetite searches for ever more exciting and more dangerous thrills.

It is in that context that the wild popularity — especially among middle-class women — of the 2011 book Fifty Shades of Grey is significant. The book is an explicit “erotic novel” by E. L. James about a relationship between a female college graduate and a male business magnate, characterized by sadomasochism, bondage/discipline, and dominance/submission.

I wonder if the middle-class matrons entranced with the novel know about the S-M horror dungeon that was recently unearthed in Louisville, Kentucky?

About four months ago, workers preparing Louisville’s historic Whiskey Row buildings for interior demolition discovered the remnants of an underground sado-masochistic swingers club from the 1970s which had been abandoned since the 1990s.

As reported by Joe Arnold of WHAS11, two floors below Main Street, a large black and white logo displays the word “LATEX,” presumably the name of the club.

Workers found sheets of plastic that they presume separated the sub-basement into different rooms. Also found in the underground dungeon were candles, a disintegrated couch, a mysterious piece of cloth draped over a table and chair, another chair covered in cobwebs, oil paintings on the walls, and a horrific torture bed.

Here are some still photos of the horror dungeon taken from the raw video shot by photojournalist Michael Driver for WHAS11:

The Daily Mail reports that an unidentified former Club Latex member, who was one of the 1,000 dues-paying patrons, claimed that “A group of about eight of us decided to form an organization to promote and teach people about safe ways to practice sadomasochism. ‘There were a few professional dominatrixes, a few that were in committed B-D-S-M relationships, some gay, some straight.” (BDSM = bondage, discipline, sadism, masochism)

One of the club’s founders, who also spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that at one point they had over a dozen bondage and torture devices, but safety was always a priority. He said, “We employed safety personnel and guards to insure nothing dangerous, non-consensual, or untoward ever took place, and to my knowledge never did.”

Yeah right. This sure looks “safe” to me:
