Anyway, as a survivor having posted my own story in a survivors' blog, I know a fair amount of survivors. I realize that there are a lot of triggers for us. That said, tonight I had a survivor friend post a picture found on Pinterest of a woman getting "suffocated." I put this in quotes because, needless to say, this was a picture that was, well let me just show you:
It's obviously staged. Regardless. There are 10 bajillion (exaggeration) comments about it being psychotic, criminal, evil, horrible.
I've entered into a HUGE rant over there about the difference of consensual and nonconsensual acts during sex. That this is, obviously (because she looks *SOOO* distressed) a consensual act. And that there's nothing wrong with BDSM. I'm trying to go about it in an educating, "let me enlighten you on what's going on here" manner, because I don't want to make anyone feel bad for being turned off by it, but I'm getting frustrated that people are so quick to immediately assume "Non-Consensual" for something that is so, very obviously, a consensual act. (Just remind me not to go to an art exhibit with any of them)
Do you find yourself dispelling the myths of kink too?
