Cautiously Optimistic

A Psychology Today blogger doesn’t actually condemn BDSM.

Maybe that’s not quite the breakthrough you were hoping for. But the piece identifies some of the issues with mainstream media’s coverage of kinky practices. The blogger, identified only by initials, also offers links to kink-positive sites, and explicitly tells her readers to make up their own minds — a stark contrast to the heavy anti-BDSM slanting of many news stories.

In a mainstream site like Psychology Today, just suggesting that we might not be dangerous lunatics counts as a win.
