Offensive to Left and Right

Haven't seen it, haven't read it, and I'm evidently not the target audience. But I am amused by the way that Fifty Shades Of Grey is hated by pundits of all political stripes.

The left hates it because it fetishizes traditional gender roles. The right hates it because it assaults traditional gender roles.

And altogether too many women love it because it gets them hot and bothered.

I've heard the book is poorly written, but that is obviously beside the point.

People don't mostly read novels
to savor the artful prose.
It's more about the characters
and where their story goes.
