BDSM is the New Gay?

is bdsm the new gay?

I was just hanging out at Huffington Post and came along a great article by Eric Schaeffer about which group is the most marginalized and reviled by “bigoted fascists” in America. The article is somewhat tongue-in-cheek but in many ways spot-on in calling out ego and fear driven hate directed towards blacks, the elderly, homosexuality, and bdsm fetish and culture. Some may find the article offensive, but isn’t this always the case when someone is bringing light to controversial ideas and challenging old perceptions and preconceived notions?

Homosexuals are no longer the anti-Christs. That prestigious honor now resides with a new rising star that has seemingly come out of nowhere: BDSM.

The idea of the article is that with Obama’s win, there was a “changing of the hate guard”. Blacks were no longer enemy number one which was taken over by old people. He goes on to suggest that homosexuals then held this position until a series of successes, including mainstream acceptance and the passage of gay marriage, in which they lost the “honor” of most hated to those interested in BDSM. (What if you are both gay and kinky?)

He is making some sensationalistic comments but what is really being called for in the end is tolerance and understanding..

“The behavior that is a result of the fear of the shaming-if-exposed, which forces the secret to remain inside, is far more destructive to our interpersonal relationships with family, loved ones and co-workers than anyone cares to imagine. It spawns lying, cheating, and self-hatred which manifests in hatred of society. As with all repression, it will be the downfall of our civilization if not eradicated.”
