NO, you know what? I am not okay with this image. I debated just leaving it alone and scrolling past, but it bothered me enough that I had to scroll back up to it and do something about it.
Don’t get me wrong, I understand why it’s supposed to be cute and whatever but like.
Domestic violence is STILL domestic violence in BDSM relationships. Just because I let you hit me for fun sometimes DOES NOT MEAN that there is no such thing as unwanted violence in our relationship.
It is because of little statements like this that legitimate claims of domestic violence in a bdsm relationship are sometimes brushed aside. “Oh, you let him spank you, so you were asking for it.” NO.
Guys, we need to keep the distinction clear. The distinction between domestic violence and foreplay.
You know what it is? I bet you do.
That’s right. It’s CONSENT. I’m CONSENTING to let you hit me. If you hit me WITHOUT my CONSENT, then it is domestic violence.
