Where is the [kinky] love?

An awesome, eloquent, everything-I’ve-always-wanted-to-express-but-lacked-the-ability post at The F-Word, by Kit from Today I Am A Boy – a new addition to my required online reading – on the reconciling of feminism and BDSM.

That is not how feminism should work. More specifically, feminism should not have a prescriptive stance on female sexuality, that subject of so much debate both outside and within the feminist movement. Feminists discuss and question; we frequently disagree and agree to differ; we debate assumptions and challenge stereotypes, but prescriptivism should not be on our agenda.

Kit, so looking forward to reading more of your stuff.

For your semi-regular dose of My God Fundies Are Hilarious, People For The American Way have cackle-inducing screenshots showing The Dangers of Auto-Replace.

Also, Girl Scouts = Radical Feminists. If by “radical feminists” you mean “think empowering young women is a Good Thing”, which … not quite.
