Problem with Wattpad

TW: Scene from a Harry Styles Fanfiction, Dark.

"Stop!" I pleaded weakly.

I felt his chest vibrate as he chuckled. His plump lips came down to my ear once again.

"I don't think so, baby. We are gonna have some fun."

I shivered at his words as he dipped his head, nudging mine to the side before I felt his lips press to the skin of my neck. He released one of my arms, so he could hold the back of my head, preventing me from escaping.

"I can tell you're going to be a challenge," He murmured against my neck, "I like that."

Wattpad has been known to be the center of the most problematic stories. It is a platform with no censorship, and anyone can write whatever comes to their mind, no matter how problematic the plotline may be. The book mentioned above is one of the most famous Harry Styles fanfictions that was first posted on the website until it went down and due to its very high demand, it was then posted on Wattpad and currently has more than 10 Million reads.

One might think that the scene above is where the woman is being taken against her will, but it is actually a 'romantic' scene for the readers as the guy who is holding the girl hostage is Harry Styles, which is extremely problematic and promoting the culture of men not being able to take no as a no.

There are several other books on Wattpad that have very problematic plotlines. Like Mistress, where the male lead would be cheating on his wife with a babysitter or someone at his office. Other books involve a female character falling for a male teacher and then exchanging various sexual favors in exchange for grades etc.
