  •  Maybe to you it's unnecessary (4+ / 0-)

    but to people who risk being arrested--just as gays did pre-Lawrence--for what they do in their homes or at a club, it is VERY necessary.

    Don't trash us by comparing us to the ANti-Chocie types.

      I knew it.  I'm talking CLINICAL fetishism, which is real and destructive.  Don't over-identify.  You don't own the word--it has real clinical meaning and significance.  I'm not talking about arbitrary arrest, I'm not talking about toys or clubs, I'm talking about the fetishism of REAL fucking mental illness.  If you don't like that the term has clinical relevance, that's a different diary and discussion.  

      My point is sound, and I stand by it.  I'm sorry.  

      It's all fun and games until the Vice President shoots someone in the face.

        it was considered a paraphilia and a mental illness.

        And I DO know the differnce--but msot peopel don't, and view them as the same thing.

        But your snide attitude toward us is precisely the problem.  Your reply reeks of condescension and enlightening the poor little subbie who knows nothing.  Well, I have two graduate degrees, and I know exactly what you're saying

        Especially HERE:

        Ugh.

        I knew it.

        If you can't smell the stink of prejudice and condescension there, you need an ENT.

        THIS sub  is only a bedroom sub.  I have fought the Religious Right and the Anti-Choice types since pre-Roe, when I was in Catholic high school. I have worked with rape victims and done clinic escort with them.  I have marched, and I have written enough letters to break several keyboards in the last five years. I have been a feminist since I was 14, which was way back in 1963. And I will match my credentials against anyone's here.  My first diary here was on abortion.

        What I am protesting is that your use of the term stigmatizes a group which doesn't deserve it (I think I have met ONE anti-choice kinkster)--the same way rseven gets tired of hearing Ann Coulter vilified as a transgendered person.

        YOU don't own the word either--and your disgust at my being a big-mouthed feminist pro-choice SUB says a LOT about you (and not much at all about me).

          You're fighting with your own.  You know nothing about me, and your insinuation that I'm somehow not a feminist is laughable.  I'll could go toe-to-toe with you any day of the week, but that would be childish, don't you think?  What are you gonna do, beat me up behind the gym for using a clinical term you don't like?

          YOU don't own the word either--and your disgust at my being a big-mouthed feminist pro-choice SUB says a LOT about you (and not much at all about me).

          You've made an ass of yourself.  Calm down.  I never claimed to own the word--you ascribed that to me.  Don't be so quick to create me in the image of your straw man. There is no "stink of prejudice or condescension" here that you haven't created all on your own.  Your "us" and "them" routine is counterproductive and distracting, too.  I'm out.  Moiv deserves better than to have you hijack this diary with your own semantic issues.

          •  No. YOU Have made an ass of yoiruself (0+ / 0-)

            when you said, "Ugh. I knew it."

            ANd if you actually reread yoru comemnnts, you;'d see the condescnesion. You ASSumed that I didn't know that there is a differnce between the clinical term and the kink uyse of it,. You made that rather disgusting comemnt I quoited.  I think I know condescension when I se eit,.

          •  No one said you weren't a feminist. (0+ / 0-)

            Patently,you are.  What you are is a bigot.Your "Ugh. I knew it" response indicated that you thought I wasn't because my bedroom games are different from yours. And if those fours words aren't condescending and snotty as hell--I don't know what is.  Own your own disgust at this.

            I wasn't hijacking the diary.  I am firmly on moiv's side.  Abortion is one of the three topics I write about frequently--the other two are the Religious Right and military wifedom--and I am consistently pro-choice.

            Asking you politely not to link alternative lifestyles with  anti-chocie types wasn't a hijack. IUt would have ended there if you'd had the courtesy to apologize--but instead, you proceeded to lecture silly, stupid, semi-literate (in your eyes) moi with the fact that there is a clinical definition--and MOI has a double master's and a Phi Beta Kappa key and is quite aware of BOTH definitions.   In other words, you carried on with the the Ugh./ I Knew it" attitude, which you are displaying here. Youa re no different than the little boys who think it's cute to call Anne Coulter transgendered--as if that was the worst thing they could think of, thus revealing their own bigotry and discomfort with TG people, just as you revealed your disdain and discomfort with a feminist who is into kink.

            There was no diary hijack except in YOUR head.
