Fifty Shades of Grey's 'R' Rating Disputed By an Anti-Pornography Group

Anti-pornography group Morality in Media is not happy with the ‘R’ rating Fifty Shades of Grey has received, specifically the “unusual behavior” wording the MPAA uses to describe the racy movie.

“What the term ‘unusual’ does not account for is the coercion, sexual violence, female inequality, and BDSM themes from which the entire Fifty Shades plot is based. Such a vague evaluation puts viewers at risk, sending the message that humiliation is pleasurable and that torture should be sexually gratifying,” the group said in a statement (via EW). “We’d like to change the MPAA rating for Fifty Shades of Grey to read: ‘Promotes torture as sexually gratifying, graphic nudity, encourages stalking and abuse of power, promotes female inequality, glamorizes and legitimizes violence against women.’”
