Do you see the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' movie as a fairy tale love story? Well, 'Morality in Media', an anti-Pornography organisation has described the movie as humiliating and abusive to women.

The 'R' rating given to the much anticipated “Fifty Shades of Grey ”  by The Motion Picture of America (MPAA), has an anti-pornography organization 'Morality in Media' infuriated.

Lead actor, Jamie Dornan, recently stated that there is more to the movie than bondage sex.

The anti-pornography organization doesn't agree with Jamie. According to Ms Hawkins - the executive director of 'Morality in Media',  An “R” rating undermines the violent themes in the movie.

“An “R” rating severely undermines the violent themes in the film and does not adequately inform parents and patrons of the film’s content,”  - She said.

"The Motion Picture of America (MPAA) warns that 'Fifty Shades of Grey,' which is due out around Valentine’s Day, has “strong sexual content including dialogue, some unusual behavior and graphic nudity,”.

“What the term ‘unusual’ does not account for is the coercion, sexual violence, female inequality, and BDSM themes from which the entire ‘Fifty Shades’ plot is based,”

The MPAA ratings and “fairy tale” label given to the film mask the true themes of humiliation, manipulation, abuse, and degradation of women,” - She added

“We’d like to change the MPAA rating for ‘Fifty Shades of Grey‘ to read: ‘Promotes torture as sexually gratifying, graphic nudity, encourages stalking and abuse of power, promotes female inequality, glamorizes and legitimizes violence against women,".

“Is this the description of a movie you’d promote to your son or daughter? What about yourself?” Ms. Hawkins said

It's a month to the premiere of one of the most anticipated movies of the year 'Fifty Shades of Grey', and a new trailer has debuted.

The trailer was revealed at the 72nd Golden Globes award which took place on Sunday, January 11, 2015.  Watch trailer.
