intersectional feminism and bdsm 800 356 6169Intersectional Feminism and BDSM was, perhaps, too much of a topic to tackle all in one, but I certainly gave it my best go… If you just want the key takeaway point, it’s this: in Intersectional Feminism, as long as everyone is consenting, BDSM is a perfectly fine thing to engage in. Can you believe it took me an hour to say just that? But, I had to come at it through the definition of what feminism is, and then what intersectional means as a modifier to the term. In this hour long show, you get a history of feminism lesson, and then a primer on some of the ways modern folks are thinking about social justice issues. It’s all intersectional, or it’s bunk.

Intersectional Feminism and BDSM, in fifty words or less:

Feminism is the idea that men and women ought to be equal under the law, as well as socially and culturally. Intersectionality refers to the multiple intersections of privilege and power in any individual’s lived experiences. Where first and second wave feminism found all porn (and BDSM) oppressive to women, modern thought embraces a plurality of experience, and so long as consent is present, BDSM is seen as perfectly acceptable.
