Christian Grey Meets Mrs. Robinson


 

50 SHADES

—Sometimes,  not always, I appreciate the act of multi-tasking.  For example,  I find eating dark chocolate and reading a kick ass book simultaneously quite exuberating. A piece of Dove chocolate for every five pages until the bag is gone or the book is finished is what I call F. U. N.   I adore listening to audio books,  like Rob Lowe’s,  Love Life, while walking outdoors.  When Rob talks about plastic Hollywood and Saint Elmo’s Fire, it is oh-so-delicious.  Seriously,  there is something utterly approachable and sexy about him.  Do you agree?

 

Also, I can go all day without texting,  but when I watch television,  I typically take out my telephone to catch up with girlfriends. I mean,  why the hell would we talk the old fashioned way?

 

And this is how this story begins.

 

So,  I’m watching Law and Order ( Special Victims Unit ), which is my newest obsession and during the commercial, I text my girlfriend,  Tia.

 

     Hey,  wazzzzzzzz up?

 

     Correcting papers.  I have lots of essays to correct.

 

     What’s going on with you?

 

     Watching Law and Order.

 

     Again?

 

     Yeah!

 

     I miss your face.

 

     Me, too.

 

I stop texting when Law and Order comes back on.  I watch the rest of it.  It’s the one where Mariska Hargitay  goes undercover in a women’s prison.  Did you know that she’s Jayne Mansfield’s daughter?  Just an interesting tidbit for you if you’re into that kind of thing.

 

When L & O is finished,  I remember I wanted to ask Tia about going to a movie next week.  I text her hastily, blindly, without my glasses.

 

      Hey,  you want to go to 50 Shades of Grey next week?

 

      Haaaa.  Absolutely Not.  Hell No.  Gross.

 

      Really?

 

She doesn’t text back right away,  so I go to my computer room to check my blog, emails, and Twitter account for a couple hours.

 

After 10 o’clock,  I check my phone. My heart stops.  I gasp.  I slap  my hands over my face like the little dude from Home Alone.

 

“Son-of-a-bitch!”  I scream.   “NOOOOOOOOOO.”

 

You see,  I didn’t text Tia.

 

I texted our 25 year old special education teacher, Luke.

The Text.

The Text.

 

The name Mrs. Robinson takes on an entirely new meaning:  a creepy, cougar, sexual harassment  meaning.  Thoughts go thru my head at lightning speed.  He might think I’m hitting on him.  He probably thinks I’m a freak.  A married, older woman making moves on a young guy. No.  No.  no.

 

Omygod…Omygod…Omygod…Shitshitshit.

 

This scene from The Graduate suddenly flows thru my mind:

 

Benjamin: Oh my God!

Mrs. Robinson: Pardon?

Benjamin: Oh no, Mrs. Robinson. Oh no.

Mrs. Robinson: What’s wrong?

Benjamin: Mrs. Robinson, you didn’t… I mean, you didn’t expect…

Mrs. Robinson: What?

Benjamin: I mean, you didn’t really think I’d do something like that.

Mrs. Robinson: Like what?

Benjamin: What do you think?

Mrs. Robinson: Well, I don’t know.

All of this goes thru my mind.  All of this keeps me awake that night.

On Monday,  I see Luke standing at our classroom door waiting for the students.

Luke is a good sport.

Luke is a good sport.

We look at one another and burst into a fit of laughter.

 

—–An important note.  Many women have asked me about my views on this movie because of the CONTROL, dysfunction,  and Domestic Violence.  I want my readers to know that I am not promoting this movie.  I am not saying that signing a contract is okay.  I am not saying that CONTROL is cool.  I am not insinuating that Christian Grey is sexy with a whip.  Women are intelligent & brilliant enough to know that Christian Grey is totally f*cked up,  and he must save himself.  We can only save ourselves…NOT our abusers.   Do you think Mr. Grey is an abuser?

Thoughts?   xxxx

    Hilarious! Glad your young male friend has a sense of humour, Kim. 😀 As for Christian Grey, I’d say he’s pretty fucked up, but I’ve only read a few excerpts of the book and don’t plan on seeing the movie. (One reviewer gave it a single star and said it was incredibly boring and silly. Sounds about right, to me!) Whether or not he’s an abuser, would probably depend on how consensual the acts were. On the other hand, he may have “brainwashed” that poor girl. Isn’t she supposed to be an innocent virgin at the beginning? Can’t really offer a substantial opinion without reading the books and I’m not at all interested in doing that. This started out as “Twilight” fan fiction, didn’t it? Yech!

    Too funny!
    I haven’t read the books or seen the movies(and have no intentions to do either), but I have been reading the blogs and comments/concerns and I have been thinking about the controversy a lot.
    I think that its not up to books or movies or video games to teach people right from wrong. Although I don’t agree with certain things or firms of entertainment does not mean they should be banned. Anothe rexample for comparison would be The Graduate film you mentioned… two consenting adults (I have seen this phrase in many of the comments for 50 shades) but if you ask me Mrs. Robinson was manipulative and I certainly don’t agree with young men should be having affairs with older married women (or anyine having affairs)… but it is a movie for entertainment and I am fortunate enough to know that and understand that it isn’t example for my life.
    I do think it sucks that so many people can’t discern for themselves that something is right or wrong, and I hope the attention it is bringing to emotional abuse will help women understand what is and is not safe.

I love the part from The Graduate…love that movie. Btw Kim…you are more than welcome to accidentally text me anytime *wink*

    I don’t know if he is an abuser as I didn’t read the book. I read only 25 pages of the last book and It made me feel so bad. I didn’t even know there were 3 volumes and what it was about. I saw it in the library and borrowed it. I read the first chapter and couldn’t go on because I panicked. I know nothing about it. I panicked in that chapter just reading about how much she loves him and how much she is scared of upsetting him, always trying to guess his mood.

    Love you, and found this hilarious. (And I would so go Mrs. Robinson on Luke, he’s adorable, but, yes, awkward!)

    Did read the (first) book, could not read the rest, will not pay to see the movie. While I am totally in favor of people having lots and lots of choices, and they can certainly pay to see this or any other movie, and love it, hate it, whatever, I’m happy that people are speaking up about the serious domestic violence in the book, if (perhaps) not in the movie. Kink and BDSM are NOT abuse; FSOG is some serious gaslighting and emotional abuse.

      all I can add is I’ve become enlightened to new perspectives.
      that is the cool thing about social media, one can learn to see things in an entirely new way.
      For example, after reading the first book, I had no idea DV was hidden inside the words.

Not my kind of thing and I find it disturbing that so many women “of a certain age” read all the books and are so excited about the movie. Just makes you go “Huh?”

    I never saw The Graduate. Probably because I was too young back then. It was considered a very risqué movie, along the lines of what is now being said about this book and movie. I never caught back up with the movie for some reason. It always sounded boring to me (ho!).

    I did read this book. I remember thinking “How can they make a movie out of this?” I have read enough books similar to this and about this lifestyle to know that this book was an unrealistic look at that lifestyle (D/s). That being said, most people are too embarrassed to admit they’ve read the book anyway because of the supposedly forbidden and torrid topic!

    Is it abuse? If you go by what that lifestyle is about, then no he is not an abuser and she is not a victim. SSC is what is important there. It is supposed to be consensual. I can’t remember enough about the story to recall if she was able to walk away or not! The movie won’t be in our town anyway. Would I see it? Nah. If the book didn’t stick in my memory, it’s not worth watching!

    It’s just a story, fiction, fake. To me it does not promote violence, domestic or otherwise. Then again, that’s just my opinion.

The graduate is a classic film, no question. Love that you excerpt the dialogue 🙂 I haven’t read 50 Shades so can’t comment on this Mr. Grey character. From the movie trailer I think he’s pretty handsome but aloof, successful men that want to tie me up? Probably not my thang. Great post, Kim! xoxo

    How I enjoyed your post Kim. I wrote about Fifty Shades of Grey when the book first came out. Drivel is what I say. Not going to see it. Have not read it and will not read it. Although I do like Jamie Doran who plays Christian Grey. He’s British and came on a show I love – Once upon a time.
    I eat chocolate like you do, when I read, and when i write. Oh my gosh! I thought the text was hilarious. He’s cute. I didn’t know Marishka Hargitay is the daughter of Jayne Mansfield. Love that you mentioned it.

    I don’t find any excuse good enough to justify BDSM. So yes, Christian Grey, regardless of why, is an abuser and a control freak.

    I remember reading your texting your phys ed teacher and laughed my head off – and thought hey, what a fab post it would make – and yes, it does! 😀

    Law and Order is one of the best-est! I love trivia too! We get an amazing TV channel that dissects real crimes, how they happened and how they solved it. Fascinating. Sometimes, though, I wonder if it teaches wannabe criminals a few tricks, taking the level of crime up a few notches. Sigh.

    The Graduate is one of my favourite films; I’ve no desire to watch 50 Shades – I read the book and rated it as on of the worst I’d ever read (although it did give me ideas for a Bryan Jones blog post!). I’m sure the film will be crap. And there’s nothing wrong with cougars, although, alas, mine now tend to be aged 70+

    LOL! 😀 I am so very glad I didn’t have any coffee in my mouth when I got to the part that Tia wasn’t the recipient of your text. Holy Hannah, that’s funny! Luke is definitely a good sport – and also adorable. 😉

    Is Christian Grey an abuser? No. Does he have some psychological dysfunction? Absolutely.

    The 50 Shades trilogy provides a “safe” vehicle for [probably mostly] women to fantasize about something they may equate with dangerous in a titillating sense. It also provides that old-fashioned happily-ever-after notion that love – and the right girl – can tame “the beast.”

    I think that’s where the true danger lies in the story. For those who don’t have the background, knowledge, or foresight to know otherwise, it suggests, in its sensually fictitious way, that we can be both lover and therapist. Real-life psychological disease of that depth isn’t fully treatable with love. Might it help? I’d like to think so. However, in cases like Christian’s it would be very rare indeed for it to provide a “cure.”

    And as for Rob Lowe…. I complete agree about his approachability. He has that air about him that suggests he’d be happy to have a cup of coffee with you and chat about all manner of things, given the right set of circumstances. I still crush on him, too. 🙂

      P.S. I read this trilogy for a job. I was working as an assistant and marketing manager for an author, and she wanted to know what it was about the series (she was writing her own trilogy) that had millions of copies flying off the shelves. As my Ya-Yas said, because none of them have any interest in the books or movie, I “took one for the team.” I suppose someone had to. 😉

    No, I didn’t read this book. No, I won’t go see the movie. Just a personal decision. I have far too little free time on my hands as it is, and wasting it doing meaningless things isn’t an option! I do like the idea of eating a Dove chocolate for every five pages you read, though! xoxo

Been amazed at the amount of my friends rushing to see it on Friday night – won’t be doing that either. Confirmed my decision after seeing lots of reviews which sum up exactly what I suspected. Great that Luke has such a great sense of humour like you. Thanks again, brightened my Sunday evening 🙂

    I laughed so hard when I read this I nearly fell out of my office chair. It is good thing he is a good sport.

    As to your other question, yes he is both a stalker and an abuser. The relationship depicted in that poorly written piece of trash is not a ‘normal’ BDSM relationship. Now I know, many would think ‘what is normal’, however the alternative lifestyle does exist and it is not one that is depicted in that book. There are huge differences.

    This is what I wrote on my FB timeline. What I’m really against is the media hyping the film and the relationship as romance and love, when it isn’t:

    Dear Friends,
    Please HELP! I have a young and naive friend, who has fallen into an abusive relationship she can’t say no to. Her lover is an older man with loads of money. He stalks her, threatens her with violence and torture if she doesn’t do what he says, micromanages her life and has cut her off from friends and family.
    In the bedroom he rapes and abuses her, makes her do painful acts against her will. She’s even been forced to sign a contract agreeing to do whatever he wants. We’ve all told her to leave him, but she has no self-confidence and can’t get out of her terrible abusive relationship. Do you have any advice?
    —–
    —–
    —–
    P.S. Her name is Anastasia Steele and his is Christian Grey and they are fictional characters. Their relationship is being hyped by the media as being romantic in the film Fifty Shades of Grey. Yes – you can read what you like and do what you like in your relationships. But it makes me sick to see the film industry normalizing violence within sexual relationships and glorifying sexual bullying without mutual consent. Today, on Valentine’s Day, my wish is that our young women and men find love and intimacy with respect – and not within the confines of an abusive relationship.

I read some of the books and enjoyed the parts I read while also groaning because how many paragraphs ended with “with gray eyes gazing into blue” or whatever it was. As far as him being an abuser? I dunno. Maybe. I don’t think that 2 people consenting to anything ON PURPOSE is abuse or control but he did control her a bit and well. I dunno. Nobody ever knows what’s wrong unless they live it. Maybe. Ugh. Great post though Kim!!!xxxooo

        Kimmy, in Australia they also play old episodes of SVU from more than 10 years ago, when Olivia had a short, spunky haircut. I especially like watching those episodes, and Elliot was in his prime too (I miss Elliot). When my Dad was alive he used to watch SVU too, and for some reason he took a set against Detective Munch and he used to mutter whenever Munch was on screen. Always made me laugh when he was muttering about Munch. xx

    Of all the movies to pick when you’re texting the wrong person! That is a very funny story, Kim. I have not read the books nor will I be seeing the movie – I don’t think there’s anything edifying to view/read xx

    What a funny read Kim, thank you for sharing it to give us all a uplifting smile. I think I must be one of 10 people the world over who hasn’t read the book or seen the movie. Must be living under a rock.
    Have a beautiful love filled and happy day my dear.
    So sorry I have not replied to your email yet. It has been ridiculously business with the neighbourhood watch and patrolling initiative plus my Pete has been home which is awesome and I will be whisked away with him on a little trip. All very exciting.
    🙂 Mandy xoxoxoxo

    Dear Kim, I told my husband about your absolutely hilarious blogpost (he is a primary school teacher) and we shared a good laugh…you certainly have a way with words, love it when your posts make me smile.
    I am a huge fan of Mariska Hargitay as well – love watching her in Law and Order (Special Victims Unit) – I even watched the episode you described – the world is a rather small place, isn´t it?!
    Thank you for a wonderful post, dear friend!
    Feel yourself hugged,
    Andrea

    THIS = BEST THING EVER! (Oh how I love you, Kim. And I know your sweet Kay was up in heaven watching and laughing her ass off when this happened.) 🙂

      Charlene,
      funny you should mention that about Kay.
      When this first happened, I wanted to call her SOOOO badly. I can hear her snorting now! She would have LOVED this.

      Luv U.

    Considering I gave the 50 Shades book a too-kind two-start review, I won’t even get started on that count 😉 Though I have heard the movie improves on the book in some ways…

    Kim, this post had me in stitches! I can imagine how mortified you must have been upon realizing the text had not gone to Tia! OMG, indeed! If I had a nickel for every time I’ve sent the wrong person emails or texts! Would you believe I have not read or seen the movie “50 Shades…” It does not interest me in the least. The Graduate, on the other hand, was a fantastic film! I fell in love with young Dustin Hoffman the first time I saw it. And that last scene! Ah, to be young and in love! Kisses to you from Roxy and me! 🙂

    I suppose the text could have been a lot worse! I once texted my son’s barber, thinking it was my husband. Luckily it was something mundane like “Please pick up some milk.”

    Sometimes Freudian slips happen Kim – he is pretty darn cute after all …. ahem ….

    I didn’t read 50 Shades of bad writing so I have no desire to even see the movie.
    I did read an article somewhere though that had me peeing my pants and it was a list of things that she rather would do than see the movie and one was “I’d rather teach Bruce Jenner how to use a tampon”

    I wrote my own take on the book/film, but I haven’t read it nor will I see it, cos I think it perpetuates brutality and I’m more into love and romance. I feel bad for young teenage girls who might be swayed into doing things sexually they don’t really feel comfortable with just so they can emulate a film

    hahaha… the texting part is epic!!!! lol

    Also there’s talk about that book and movie pretty much everywhere. The more I hear about it, the less I want to watch/read it… for what I’ve read/heard in reviews, the writing is just lame and the movie doesn’t do justice to the already lameness of the book because, well, it’s just as lame.

    The text exchange was hilarious, luckily he is a good sport. Chocolate and a good book or movie sounds fantastic however I wouldn’t pay to see Shades of Grey. If it’s ever on Netflix or Hulu I might watch it. Maybe.

    OMG, Kim, how I love this post soooo much! It sounds like something my best friend would do; she is forever texting inappropriate stuff to the wrong person. I DO have to say, however, that I’m probably not alone in thinking that Luke is someone that I, personally, would love to take to a screening of 50 Shades…and I happen to be semi-happily married. *swoon*

    This was truly laugh out loud funny. I love that you both cracked up about it when you saw each other the next time. Sounds like a great kid.

    That’s hilarious Kim!
    I read the first two books and gave up on number 3… I couldn’t take anymore the “Stop bitting your lips…”
    I think Mr. Grey has many personal issues he needs to look after but it’s the part where he says that Anastasia will save him that revolts me. As you said, you can only save yourself.
