And while I'm at it.

"I sincerely believe in RACK, not SSC!"

From now on, I am going to immediately assume that anyone uttering the above statement, or anything like it, is an idiot.

That is all.

Actual wisdom will rarely fit on a bumper sticker.

I'm glad the term RACK hasn't really caught on down here.

"Well, I believe in the soul, the cock, the pussy, the small of a woman's back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days."

can't you have both?

They're both PR slogans, nothing more. Meaningless in the end, but people try to use them as a shield/badge, altering their meanings to suit their purposes. And in the end, they're idiots.

What!? People in the scene are not always mentally healthy and will go to great lengths to justify unhealthy behavior? Perish the thought!

Guess I'm an idiot then.

The way I think of it is, everything we do, no matter how safe we try to be, is dangerous in one way or another, we play recognizing these dangers and aware of them and consentent. Nothing we do is "Safe" there is always some kind of danger or risk involved. The rope could break, the flogger could wrap, or whatever have you. They're all risks, I am aware of them, I consent to the activities anyways. I don't see how that makes me an idiot, but your boat, whatever.

I am referring to people who try to identify themselves as one thing and not the other, as if there is an actual distinction between the two. They are both slogans, and they mean the same thing. Safe is always defined as what is safe to you. Sane is knowing the difference between fantasy and reality. Consent, well I shouldn't even need to explain.

I have seen people say it is ok to publicly ignore a bottom's safeword when called, because they are RACK players, and not SSC. Which is utter bullshit.

"Being RACK" makes you no better, or different, than "being SSC". It's just a bunch of status games, trying to make oneself better than the other.

So, yes, I stand by my statement. If someone tries to say they are RACK and not SSC, they're an idiot.

Hi, I'm the IDIOT
Hello there, I guess I'm the idiot. The only one with something a little different to say than the rest of the supportive gang gets called the idiot. Fantastic!

I happen to really agree with kayt_arminta on why I consider myself more RACK than SSC. And sure they're slogans, what difference does that make?

BDSM is risky, but we are all adults and we have the right to make the choices we do. Saying someone is unsafe because they happen to play edgier than someone else is WRONG. That's what the 'nillas do us all the fucking time. Why do I need someone in the lifestyle telling me how to play? Threatening to out people based on he said/she said crap. WTF?

Re: Hi, I'm the IDIOT
I have never said anywhere in any of my posts that someone is unsafe because they are "edgy," nor am I telling you how to play.
