I Never Called It Rape


Fantastic article on the problem and prevalence of rape and sexual assault that goes unnamed and unpunished in the kink community by Kitty Stryker at PurrVersatility and on the Good Vibrations blog.  Both links are posted here because of the different comment streams, which are both excellent, although more extensive on the second link.

The point about victim-silencing is particularly well-taken.  It is *the* primary reason why the subject is not discussed more extensively and openly, and particularly why more people don’t speak out to wider audiences about their experiences.

This is a must read if you are even remotely concerned about the issue of abuse in the BDSM “community” – and will explain a lot about why you should be concerned if you are not already.
