Reiner 4 Neuroethics 65 Neuroscience has substantially advanced the understanding of how changes in brain biochemistry contribute to mechanisms of tolerance and physical dependence via exposure to addictive drugs. Promoting a brain disease concept is grounded in beneficent and utilitarian thinking:
These posts kicked up more of a furor than I anticipated, with a bunch of cross-postings and responses on other blogs. I go by Clarisse. Identifying as feminist and pro-BDSM can be really fraught territory — many avowed feminists regard BDSM with suspicion and some, on the more extreme end, with outright hatred.
Nine Deuce, a popular radical feminist blogger, has been known to assert that sadists are morally obligated to either repress their sadistic desires or kill themselves. I swear, I have the biggest crush on Audacia Ray. I want to be her when I grow up. In Chicago, I lectured on BDSM and sexual communication, and I created and curated a fabulous sex-positive film series and discussion group that it broke my heart to leave.
The film series was so successful that a group of loyalists gathered, formed a committee, and have continued it without me! My degree is in Philosophy, Religious Studies and Studio Art, not anything gender-related — and when I was in college I remember that I often viewed hard-line feminist assertions with suspicion.
The problem is, of course, exacerbated by the fact that definitions of feminism have become so varied and so many different issues have been attached to feminism by different people.
These are some of the reasons I tried to spend my entire Entitled Cis Het Men post series asking questions, rather than making assertions. One commenter who went by Sailorman over at Alas said, on the third post: I read this thread with interest, but it is of course basically a very extended and well written TPHMT argument?
I really am just interested in exploring various and often very discrete masculinity-related questions.
No, really, I am. In the third one, I failed to make a point that really needed to be made, which is: So what comes clear from that correction is that, yeah — if we want to boil this down to the Oppression Olympics, I do think women have it worse than men and that America is still more centered around and gives more aggregate power to men.
But the whole point of those posts was to evade the Oppression Olympics! He was referring to the third post in particular, I think, in which I talk about how many feminist spaces are arguably hostile to men, and it might be in the interest of feminists to make them less hostile.
In that segment, my language became especially strong: I did things like refer to men as The Oppressive Class, for instance.
Oh, my broken feminist heart. I agree with Toy Soldier that this may not have been the best tactic. In general, I try to support debating as charitably and with as reasonable a tone as possiblewhich is something I did not succeed at in Part 3.
Another comment Toy Soldier posted: It seems more that, like many feminists, she wants to define the problem, define the terms, define the rules of discussion and define the solution. This is partly a reasonable point.A comprehensive review of positive psychology.
