In this post, Jenny looks at characteristics of abusive relationships and the fact that many of them feature in 50 Shades – hence one of the reasons why she finds the books so problematic. Worth a read. Content note: has some colourful language and talks about some of the stuff that happens in abusive relationships – which, obviously, isn’t nice.
