Wow... "Me 2 is crude, racist, sexist and in entirely well-worn ways"? Seriously?
The movie was fun, silly and exactly what I had hoped for from a fun and silly movie. I suppose you *could* (and have) over-analyzed this light-hearted movie as though it was Tolstoy or Plath - but I think most people would simply enjoy the movie for what it is. Fun!
Lighten up, Ms. Johanson.
Just a reminder that Voodoo is hosting No Pants Thursday this week - June 27th - from 7-9pm. The session will be facilitated by Broken Glass Photography. $10 per person or $5 for Voodoo members.
Great article RyAnne! Colorado Springs has had an enormous and active fetish community for over 15 years and it's great to finally have a place for fetish artists to express themselves. Thank you so much!
Several studies have been conducted by psychologists, sex therapists and other professionals that have concluded that BDSM, Fetish and kink is not a psychological abnormality that would require... as you say, "treatment".
There is a great quote by Dr. William A. Henkin who said,
"Absent distress, harm, or functional impairment, to define such activity as a mental disorder is to place chains on the human spirit, and to produce a chilling effect on the very processes we as psychotherapists are trained and charged to abet: the healing and liberation of damaged and imprisoned personalities, and their integration in the full creative expression of human beings." (Henkin, 1989)
I think it's right that we celebrate the liberation of our spirit and the acceptance of our truest selves, especially when faced with persecution and admonishment from those who would have us live in accordance with their perceptions of morality.
Great article Bryce! It's nice to see it when the kink and BDSM community is described positively. Colorado Springs has one of the most active and diverse kink communities I've ever seen and there are public events that happen every week, all over town. Hopefully this article helps people find these events and learn the skills they need to explore BDSM more safely.
Celebration of Power
