Because I Can: Another Rationalization for Exploitation (Plus a Great Response)

15 Sep

It seems fitting that yet another (misguided) feminist justification for exploiting vulnerable beings would come out while we are attending the National Sexual Assault Conference this week.  We put so much effort and energy into supporting the very norms that perpetuate the exploitation of women and all oppressed humans just so we can justify our own pleasure-seeking and power-over  behaviors.  Read this  response from Carol J. Adams to yet another of these justifications attempts.

    Thanks Ashley. The backlash can be heartbreaking because it seems so uninformed. Hope your conference goes well. Carol
