‘Fifty Shades’ at the Water Cooler

by Evil HR Lady on February 11, 2015

Hot and steamy is generally a topic left for the shower, and not for discussion in the office. Generally, most companies don’t have too big of a problem with this, but with the new Fifty Shades of Grey set to come out just in time for Valentine’s Day, you might have to worry about it.

It’s just a movie, and we always discuss movies at work. So what makes this one different? Well, some groups question its R rating, saying it should have received the stronger NC-17 rating since it has such strong and extreme sexual content. This means that discussions about the actual movie, and not just “Yeah, I saw it. It was OK,” can open up your company to sexual harassment claims.

Yes, over a movie.

Or you could just do everyone a favor and decline to see this sexist, abusive piece of garbage.
Billed as a romance, and debuting on Valentine’s Day, “Fifty Shades” has even been condemned by the BDSM community due to it’s violent and inaccurate portrayal of BDSM sexual practices.
It was a crappy book, albeit a great moneymaker, and it’s going to be more of the same at the theater. Just don’t go.
