What Fifty Shades of Grey Readers Have In Common

Description of the video: "What do readers of Fifty Shades of Grey have in common? A recent study showed strong correlations between health risks in women's lives - including violence victimization - and consumption of Fifty Shades of Grey material. Stefan Molyneux speaks with Dr. Amy Bonomi about the study's findings and what can be learned from the popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey."

When I this book first came out, I was so frustrating that the media portrayed 50 Shades of Grey as a book everyone loved, and yet it just wasn't a well written book. I even remember the ladies on The View even embarrassed poor President Obama by asking him if he'd read the book. They were giggling like school girls in love. It was pretty pathetic display, even for The View.

Watching this video by Stefan Molyneux I'm double disappointed and frustrated that the media continues to hype Fifty Shades of Grey. It is yet one more example of how out of touch and clueless the mainstream media is in presenting culture and news accurately. How could they have missed that the vast majority of women that bought this book didn't like it and didn't even finish reading it?

Toward the end of this video interview are warning signs for domestic violence that women should watch for in a relationship.
