BDSM Logic Makes No Sense Applied to Anything Else

“It is a seriously held tenet of many male Leftists that a commitment to women’s liberation can coexist with the practice of eroticizing rape. This is, as a concept, fucking crazy, and such nonsense would never be tolerated among anti-racist whites. It would never be tolerated among allies to gays and lesbians. It would never be tolerated among Marxists in solidarity with the proletariat. And yet the right of men to utilize our terrorism as a sex aid is actively celebrated by many who honestly claim to support feminism. A belief that BDSM is compatible with women’s liberation requires a belief that there are thousands of men out there who truly hate sexual violence and support women’s freedom, but also find it arousing to pretend to tie them up and pretend to rape them. Call me crazy, but I really doubt it.”
