This Week, in Decisions I May Have Cause To Regret:

After receiving many an e-mail and comment on the subject (and: thanks, e-mailers!) the Dworkin Thread of Doom has now been re-opened. I will be moderating comments so that it can stay productive, as it was for the majority of its run last week. Ad hominem/ad feminam/your-sexing-is-invalid/I’m-bored-let’s-have-a-yelling-party-on-the-Internet arguments will be deleted, regardless of whether or not I agree with them, as usual. Everything else is fair game.

Play fair, folks! Don’t make me use Disapproving Joan Graphics on you!


Joan has some thoughts about your stance on BDSM.

    Hi Sady. Been lurking for a while. Not because my habitual discretion dictates that I know when to keep my big mouth shut, but merely because I can't get my login to work. This is Orlando, but anonymous until I stop being such a luddite.

    Having just looked over the thread you refer to in this post, this felt like the perfect moment to have a little, public, sigh of gratitude for the nature of the femoblogosphere, and your corner of it in particular. Do you know anywhere else where a bunch of people with such passionately divergent opinions can all manage to say so many pertinent and perspicacious things and stay so (comparatively) on-topic and un-abusive? It's like a fantasy version of a drawn-out, knock-down argument. So, in conclusion, umm: yay.
