50 Shades Of Grey's R Rating Is Wrong — According To THIS Watch Group, Who Says It's WAY Too Vague!

Uh oh! Looks like some people weren't so happy with the R rating 50 Shades of Grey received!

According to Morality in Media, who are basically an anti-pornography vigilante group, the film starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson is NOT worthy of the rating it got!

However, the problem MiM has isn't with the R it received, their problem lies with the wording of the rating.

[ Video: 50 Shades Of Grey Gets An Extended Trailer! HAWT! ]

The MPAA wrote that the movie earned an R because of:

"the strong sexual content including dialogue, some unusual behavior and graphic nudity."

Apparently the term "unusual behavior" doesn't live up to their own expectations of a warning.

Their response was:

"[The rating] severely undermines the violent themes in the film and does not adequately inform parents and patrons of the film's content.

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.

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.'"

Well, that's certainly very, erm, judge-y? To say the least…

Sure, Fifty Shades may not be the most accurate representation of the BDSM culture, (seeing as Jamie Dornan told the world most submissives are actually men) but we don't think it "glamorizes violence against women."

Besides, they have a safe word in the film and everything!

If that's what you're into, then that's what you're into, but we think Morality in Media is turning the BDSM culture into something that it's not.

What do YOU think, Perezcious readers? Do you agree or disagree with what Morality in Media is saying?

    Rated R for adults. Adults who know very well what it is about. It does not need a higher rating than the one it already has.

    Female inequality? They so realize Christin himself was a submissive before right? This film isn't about a woman being a sub…a man can be one as well and these films delve into that.

    I find it funny that the only people who like this book have a 3rd grade reading level. And they're bitching about it being "only Rated R."

    Umm, okay.

    I have no intention of seeing this film, but Perez and mods, can you please lose the very annoying audio ads?
    Disneyworld just went on my boycott list for their annoying, repetitive ads.
    I get you need ads, but can you just not make them audio ads please? Thanks for your consideration.

    MIM is off its rocker. First they don't understand BDSM other then what they see. BDSM is much more then the actual physical acts to fully understand it one would need to actually probably try it out. MIM just in its response wording is overly aggressive and thoughtless. Basically more religious nut bags that want to push close minded overly Politically Correct. They want to make a judgement about a group of people they don't know the first thing about. typical.

    My comment is if your gonna make this movie then you should have made it like the book. No other way to change the way the book was written and honestly that is what I believe people like. Not something cheesy.
