So I foolishly read a review from a BDSM club night and now I’m feeling depressed again.  What started as a fairly poorly written article turned into a racial debate starting with the words “How could she find it enjoyable to refer to people as slaves and whip them?” Rather than following this up with an educated discussion the author proceeded to wander around the club and ask anyone she could find of African descent whether or not they found it a bit weird.

I can understand why some people might be uncomfortable with ‘the lifestyle’ and you can expect in that environment to come across a large proportion of tourists but I found it sad that someone would use the issue of racial intolerance to put across an article depicting their sexual intolerance.  It just feels sometimes that we haven’t progressed very far in the last few hundred years.
