I do not plan to see “Fifty Shades of Grey.” First of all, the film is getting lousy reviews, and secondly, I don’t wish to support the mainstreaming of sado-masochism in our culture.
However, no matter how I feel about it, apparently it’s being shoved down the throats (and I use that expression intentionally) of CHILDREN in our nation.
In public school no less!
Unbelievably, students in Monessen Middle School in Pennsylvania were given word search puzzles based on “Fifty Shades of Grey” that contained terms such as “spanking,” ”submissive,” ”leather cuffs,” “bondage,” “intercourse” and others more explicit.
According to CBS Pittsburgh, Joshua Kramer, a senior at Monessen High School told KDKA’s Brenda Waters he didn’t see the puzzle, but heard about it. He said “I heard it had a lot of raunchy stuff in it, not good at all. It was kind of ridiculous.” Kramer said about 4 or 5 students were given the puzzle by a teacher during “in school suspension.”
