Someone obviously thought once that political correctness was a good idea, but with all good ideas this girl thinks a time comes when someone takes a good idea too far and seriously overdoes it with unnecessary overkill. PC has got to that point and gone far beyond.
The notion of P.C was originally to support social, political, and educational change and to redress historical injustices in matters such as race, class, gender, and sexual orientation and to avoid expressions or actions that can be perceived to exclude or insult people who are socially disadvantaged or discriminated against.
This girl was thinking about this today because someone on another website she uses asked the question of whether an SS uniform would be likely to cause offence at a fetish club. The Nazi regime discriminated against and looked down upon pretty much every minority group that existed and in addition tortured, maimed and murdered many, and whilst the uniform and insignia were part of that, this girl doesnt necessarily believe that clothes maketh the man, whilst they might alter an outsiders pereception of him they do not change his attitude or beliefs. Dressing up for fetish is just that it is part of the fun it does not change your personality permanently (unless you are a complete idiot who believes their own bullshit!)
You could take the attitude that in a way wearing such a uniform is offensive, and probably if it had occured in the 60s or so than probably it would be with it being more likely to encounter survivors with first hand experiences but now we are 60 years on from the event and so this girl doesnt see why it is any more offensive than any other expression of BDSM,fetish or fantasy (although she would not suggest trying it in places such as Germany,Austria or Poland!)
It certainly is not one of this girl’s fantasies, but then she is a firm believer in the concept of your kink is ok its just not necessarily for me.
There will be people who have the fantasy of an SS or gestapo style interrogation and who might decide to incorporate such into roleplay. Provided the concept stays fantasy and you dont take on the beliefs and ideals of the original wearers what is the problem?
Another example of this is consensual slavery. The idea of fantasy slavery is something that is a key part of this girl’s D/s, that she is owned that she is his property, his toy, and his slut. But thats it – a fantasy- he doesnt treat her like a slave everyday he does not rob her of her basic human rights. This girl has come across people who see slavery as a fantasy as wrong but hey if it works and floats your boat what is the problem. Fantasy torture and interrogation is again something she enjoys but then she knows how to see it as fantasy rather than for its original evil and unacceptable purposes.
BDSM is about admitting your deepest darkest wildest most imaginative fantasies, and as with anything there will be people who take it to extremes that others arent comfortable with. This girl thinks though provided it is ultimately safe and consensual – enjoy it! Many BDSM practices without consent present are unpleasant and potentially abusive – even simply tying someone up would be distressing to someone who doesnt get off on it and who doesnt consent to it! Yes such people exist that would class human bondage as a crime LOL – consent makes the difference.
There are obviously things that are fundamentally wrong that shouldnt be fantasies of consenting adults such as paedophilia but this girl does NOT count that as a BDSM practice but as a shocking and disturbing mental illness. Some things are just WRONG.
Several activities that this girl and others enjoy were once regarded by medical professionals as pathological, but are now not regarded as illnesses. The following from Wikipedia :
Indeed, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) asserts that “The fantasies, sexual urges, or behaviors” must “cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning” in order for sexual sadism or masochism to be considered a disorder. In Europe an organization called “ReviseF65” has worked towards this purpose in the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10). (See ReviseF65)
However, BDSM remains, as such not technically politically correct. Fetishists remain a group of people that the majority of society frown upon, make jokes about (quite often in this girl’s workplace as it happens) and who are socially, morally and politically unacceptable to ‘society’. Ok so these days it is accepted more than it once was, but we are still deviants expressing our individuality.
Really we should pride ourselves on being the open minded ones but yet there are so many within the BDSM comunity who are as uncomprehending of other kinks to their own as the ‘non-converted’, therefore why should any BDSMer claim to be politically correct when they themselves discriminate and judge their peers. Yes we are unacceptable, we are different and odd but then vive la difference. But if you want to be different then at least respect others who choose to express their alternative fantasies and sexuality as well.
Therefore this girl remains
a bound and tortured used slave slut – (at least once a month 😉 lol) – and whilst this may not be politically or socially acceptable it is bloody good fun!
