“Fifty Shades of Grey” Linked to Women With Low Self-Esteem

There’s a new study out by Michigan State University claiming that women who read “Fifty Shades of Grey” have a higher risk of:

·         Eating disorders
·         Binge drinking
·         Promiscuity
·         Getting caught in abusive relationships.

Shocking, right? That such a piece of trash could have any connection to women believing and behaving like they’re worthless?

Professor Amy Bonomi, the study’s lead researcher, says that her findings don’t “show whether reading ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ causes the behaviors, or whether exhibiting the behaviors causes you to read ‘Fifty Shades of Grey. But that’s inconsequential.”

Yahoo’s write-up on this phenomenon goes on to say:

“If the behaviors came first, she explained, the book could reaffirm women’s experiences and potentially ‘aggravate trauma.’ Likewise, if the book came first, we see the normalization of extremely problematic and violent behaviors,’ she said.”

So in other words, reading “Fifty Shades of Grey” is bad all around.

This is not rocket science, ladies. Just say “No!”
