QotD: “It’s disgustingly coercive to describe bdsm relationships as involving a ‘deeper/stronger bond’ than other romantic relationships”

It’s disgustingly coercive to describe bdsm relationships as involving a ‘deeper/stronger bond’ than other romantic relationships, like you’re not even trying to hide the fact that you’re telling young girls and women that their relationship has more value if they let their male partner beat them for sexual gratification, and, conversely, that if they don’t want to experience physical violence, it’s because their relationship is weak and they just don’t trust/love their partner deeply enough. When we’re taught that so much of our value is tied to our romantic relationships with men, how do you expect women and girls to stand up against that?
