On the Evolution of Slavery: Owning Property is a Relation, not a Right

So I want to share something I’m still working through. I tend not to share potentially inflammatory and early thoughts these days, mostly because of the spectre of the corrupt pop social justice mobsters who pounce on any chance they get to demonize me and my work. But I’m gonna share this anyway, this time, […]

Some unsolicited advice to dominants [power can not exist in a vacuum]

rolequeer: rolequeer: I don’t believe ethical domination is possible. But if I had to give a dominant who absolutely refuses to quit the game one bit of advice about how to make domination less unethical, that one piece of advice would be: DON’T. DATE. SUBMISSIVES.
