Hi, could you help me spread the word about this LGBTQ issue? Please reblog my post (Or make your own post!) about a girl FIGHTING TO CHANGE THE DEROGATORY DEFINITION OF 'GAY' IN APPLE DICTIONARY. Please help spread the word so we can make a change. My post is on my blog at /post/66834544340/student-asks-apple-to-change-gay-in-dictionary
Happy to have started people discussing BDSM and Ace and their place in the LGBTQ/Queer/ GSM world.
As far as the question if BDSM is included when studying GSM, it is simply a fact that it is. Open up an academic book and you’ll see. The text I used last semester: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans,& Queer Psychology by Clarke, Ellis, Peel, and Riggs, page 185. I love the controversy as all these points of view need to be considered and are valid for individuals. But we can’t argue the fact of what people in the field include in their studies.
ETA: part of a longer discussion going on, I know it might not make sense without context.
comment:I was under the impression that the S stood for sexual orientation, rather than sexuality in general. So what you’re saying is that “GSM,” as an acronym used academically, includes BDSM/kink? I would like a clarification on that.
answer: it does mean Sexual Orientation. And BDSM/kink is included in GSM in an academic realm? Frequently. It is where is it discussed and studied in an academic setting- not forming groups or organizations. Whether BDSM/Kink people consider themselves in this group is totally a personal decision and not one I’m making at all.
