March Question Meme: Day Sixteen

Asked by denorios:

If you could wipe one work of literature from existence (book, play, poem, your choice), what would it be and why?

As a disclaimer, I'm not a fan of censorship of any kind, no matter whether I intensely dislike a particular book and/or author. What I don't like, someone else may find enjoyment in, and I'm of the mind that even if something is complete crap it can be used as a learning tool.

With that being said, however, I think erasing Fifty Shades of Gray from existence would greatly improve the world. It continually spreads misinformation and harmful stereotypes of the BDSM community, never mind that an abusive relationship is horrifically glorified through this lens. The fact that it rose in popularity absolutely baffles me. If there is any kind of literature I would eradicate from existence, it would definitely be this, especially when you learn how it got published in the first place. Anything that does more harm than good is worth being removed.
