But equally, it's a pity that all the literature we can name offhand generalises it as born of psychological damage. I don't know. Can anyone discuss the portrayal of Ana in Fifty Shade of Grey? She doesn't sound damaged. Moronic, perhaps, but healthy :P
ana's apparently not the damaged one. her 'dom' is. he... won't take his shirt off (to save her the horrendous depression at the sight of his scars)? and apparently his being a 'dom' is born from childhood sexual/physical abuse. because clearly all doms/dommes were abused as children and grow up to be just as mentally unstable as christian in this book.
