I am passionate about politics, and this passion more than occasionally finds its way into my kink life. I’m trying to be as active as I can, for example, in promoting Consent Culture. I believe in making kink accessible to people of all ethnicities, and would like to see as many events as possible become disability friendly. I believe in safe spaces; I campaign for queer acceptance.
My political beliefs will inevitably find their way into my writing on this blog, because they’re inextricably linked with my sense of self. Because the personal is always political. Because sometimes things happen, to me and to others around me, that aren’t OK. Because sometimes things happen, to me and to others around me, that are glorious and life-affirming at least partly because they’re rooted in acceptance.
It’s possible – likely, even – that people will find some of that content difficult to swallow. I may post things that are triggering (though I will do my best to issue trigger warnings where necessary). I may post things that confront you with an uncomfortable truth. I may simply post things that you disagree with. A comment moderation policy will be put in place; whilst I am open to criticism, I will not tolerate hateful, abusive comments in this space. Because this is my little corner of the Net, see, and I make the rules.
I don’t intend to keep all this content political – hell, I doubt it will even be all that serious – but it’s worth putting this out there early on, I think.
