Sacred Kink II: Rebels Without A Cause

IceMountainFire

When I stumbled over sadomasochism in my late teens, I felt like everybody was getting something I didn’t. Why did they choose a Marquis as a symbol of the huddled masses? Why was whipping people associated with freedom for these people? Why did sadomasochists try to make themselves out as an oppressed minority and “the cool kids” simultaneously?

I’m not going to link these articles because their intents, observations and conclusions have nothing to do with transgenderism one way or the other and none of their authors ever claimed they did.

Often, the rebuttal to these arguments is that studies about brain differences fail to account for nurture versus nature and are inconclusive. And that’s true, and worth pointing out. But I think it misses the point a bit. Because even if these studies…
