Mission Statement

“To create a space that’s friendly and safe for feminists and kinky people to share their views.   To promote respectful dialogue across the range of feminisms and kinky lifestyles and activities.   To maintain a spirit of tolerance and acceptance on the basis that “Your Kink Is Not My Kink, And That’s OK”, and “Your Feminism Is not My Feminism, And That’s OK”.

Format:

All Posts/Carnival links to other blogs to be labelled for content so people know what they’re clicking onto and can choose to avoid content that may squick or trigger them.

For posts posted on this site this will be done before a cut. Links to carnival submissions off site followed with list of labels, for example:

  • Mr Jobby writes about his diet (scat, nutrition)
  • or Grabmeoffthestreet writes about takedown play (consensual non-consent, public covert play, rough handling, contracts)

these are made up examples…

Content (posts, links or comments) that are:

  • Sexist: discriminatory on the basis of gender and/ or that promote stereotyping of social roles based on gender.
  • Homophobic/ Biphobic: expressing, fear, contempt or antipathy for or advocating discrimination against homosexuals and bisexuals.
  • Transphobic/ Transmisogynist: discrimination against transgender and transsexual persons based on their expression of their internal gender identity
  • Racist: hatred, intolerance, expressions of contempt towards other races
  • Ableist: discrimination or predjudice against people with disabilities
  • Classist: bias based on social or economic class
  • And any other kind of bullshit essentialist stereotyping, such as ‘Twue Typing” or “one true Waying”

We will try to laugh at your stupid ass when you engage in:

Splaining: (from disabledfeminists.com)

In a nutshell, ’splainin’ is an “explanation” which is put forward in the most patronizing way possible. The ’splainer feels passionately that [their] opinion and beliefs outweigh actual lived experience and wishes to inform everyone of this fact. ’splainers are unfortunately especially common in safe spaces in which the voices of people living in marginalized bodies are centered, because such spaces are threatening to people who find our voices contrary to their worldviews.

“My belief,” the ’splainer says, “outweighs your experience. What I think matters more than the information you are presenting me with about what is actually lived.” (brackets added)

Any attempts to ‘splain to others about their lived experience will be treated as the stupidity it is and if your comments aren’t summarily deleted they will be posted for all of the internet to mock and laugh at. There might even be lolcats.

This includes but is not limited to:

  • Mansplaining
  • Cissplaining
  • Whitesplaining
  • Ablesplaining

Frequency:

The Carnival of Kinky Feminists hopes to take place at least every three months, if there is great interest we may consider monthly or bi-monthly.

Submissions:

May be made via Blog Carnival if you want to submit a post from your own site. If you don’t wish, for whatever reason, to do that you can submit via email to kinkyfeminists-at-hotmail.com.
