I'm sorry the point was misconstrued - I mean that we shouldn't let girls read things like that without context. They must be informed why these works are problematic and why the relationships depicted in them are considered abusive. It’s easy to see how Christian Grey is physically abusive but even today people still don’t understand the emotional abuse Edward used on Bella, so what chance have they got of recognizing if their own partners end up being emotionally abusive?
"I mean that we shouldn’t let girls read things like that without context."
This statement is without context - What do you mean ‘girls’? Do you mean children?
If you mean “children” then you should say “children”, because 50 shades of Gray is not being sold to children - it’s being sold to adult women.
As to Twilight, OK you don’t like it. That sounds more like taste and your lack of approval than anything else.
Don’t get me wrong I think both ‘50 shades of gray’ and ‘twilight’ reduces women and girls, yet again, to being just obsessed with sex and relationships.

"oh my god stop criticizing young girls who like 50 Shades of Gray or Twilight you can’t tell them what they can and can’t read"
no we can’t but we have to protect young girls from mistaking abusive behavior for genuine affection at all costs
For fuck sake, stop telling girls and women what they can see and read under the guise of ‘protecting them’.
Stop trying to control the women’s lives.
If you are middle class, it does not matter if you are Conservative or Liberal, we are both under attack.
Wow … looks like a conservatives just woke up …
Hate to be the one who says “I told you so”, but for the last 10 or 15 years the ‘Liberals’, ‘Progressives’, ‘Lefties’, ‘Moderates’, ‘Centrists’, etc, have been screaming that the engine of the economy (i.e. the middle-class) is under attack by the Super-Rich and their lackeys.
