If You Like 'Fifty Shades of Grey' You're Probably Kinda Sexist

dakota johnson jamie dornanWe've been unfazed by most of the annoying chatter regarding some people's unfavorable opinions of the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise, but now a new study has us feeling some rage. There is apparently some evidence that women who read Fifty Shades believe that men are superior. What?!

The study conducted by The Ohio State University polled 747 women between the ages of 18 and 24. Some of them read the books and some of them did not. Of those who were well acquainted with Fifty Shades of Grey, one personality trait stood out: sexism. Meaning, the notion that women are inferior to men. These are women having these thoughts. Women thinking they are inferior ... in 2016!

How could this be true? Do Fifty Shades of Grey fans believe they should be submissive to men in all areas of life? And that they aren't as good as men? I'm sorry, but ... what's that Meghan Trainor song ... I be like nah to the ah to the no, no, no.

I'm just going to go ahead and say this ... this study is flawed. Something wasn't translated properly or they just found that rare batch of women who don't understand their worth. Being a submissive doesn't mean you believe men are superior. This movie and the books are all about fantasy. And to me, that means we can fantasize about being submissive because HELLO in reality we are not. Women are way too strong in so many ways to be inferior. We create life, people!
