Uh it’s not exactly abuse on women, it’s a Dom Sub relationship which is what some couples and people enjoy. In the move the woman is the sub, but in other case scenarios in real life, there are makes who are subs for don women and vice versa, same with same sex couples.

oh, no i’m not taking any offence. you’re entitled to your opinion like everyone else, and unlike some people you manage to voice it in a sivilized manner. so please, no need to apologize :)
i won’t claim to have read all the reactions to this “interview” (i’m using the term lightly because honestly), but i’ve registered everything from “meh” to intense outrage.
personally i feel Clevver TV is the worst offender for putting them all in that situation to begin with. that is shitty tv and the interviewer was downright gleeful about it. how about spending a few minutes googling and coming up with a few questions relating to the show instead?? The cast seemed taken aback and caught offguard (with the expection of Posey who seemed delighted) both with this fanfic reading and the meme-thing.
that said, the cast and jeff could definitely have handled it better. jeff did in fact actually compliment one of the fics, so kudos for that. but all around not their most graceful moment.
i write fanfiction myself, and when we post fics for people to read we are opening ourself and our work up for critism. some will like it, some will hate it. but a large part of the fanfic writers are really young, some write in a language that isn’t their first language, some are just starting out and are using fanfiction to hone their writing skills. very few fanfic writers are professionals prepared to handle both love and hate, and i think this is why so many are really disappointed in the cast for not showing their fanbase more respect and recognising that this comes from a place of love.
some people are hating on the cast and jeff and spewing negativity, and i think that is taking it to far. we want them to be respectful, but so many are not being especially respectful in their responses and reactions. it is possible to call them out on things without resorting to wank. i don’t think for a moment that the cast are cruel people out to shame and mock the fans. i think they were dumped into a situation they were not prepared for and didn’t handle it as gracefully as they should. that is on them, and they should work on that. i blame clevver tv 70 % for creating the setting and the cast 30 % for the rest.
