Things I was not expecting:
I actually met Maymay in 2011, and IIRC they talked endlessly about how they found ace discourse (particularly the brand that David Jay conveys) really resonated with them. They said they wanted to interview DJ for their podcast, but it never happened. It was suggested I could be interviewed too, but that never happened. They said they’d write a blog post about it, but I tracked their blog for a period of time and it never happened. yeah…
These days, I hear pretty bad things about Maymay, stuff that I’d rather just not touch at all.
Wow! Would not have figured.
I have also heard some pretty nasty things about Maymay, just FYI. If I hadn’t been on the road yesterday, I’d have commented and added that myself.
Chiming in that I have also heard some pretty nasty shit about Maymay.
(I also find a lot of things within rolequeer talk extremely skeevy – you’re obviously able to curate your own stuff, but I felt kinda weird that no-one had mentioned that yet. It’s a weird mixed bag of ‘oh okay you had a nice idea there but wait what the fuck how did you get over there’.)
ALSO I REMEMBER THE SPIRITUAL BONDAGE THING luckily I escaped that church /before/ learning about kink, or I’d never have had a sombre Sunday again.
That was not the thing I was “wow”ing at, incidentally, but the input is noted all the same.
And actually, Cor and I had briefly discussed as much (re:rolequeer) in the comments of my kinkspam post. That’d be a good place to talk more about it, if you want.
Thanks, I’ll migrate – had not caught up on comments there, so I appreciate the direction.
#3 is really interesting! I’m curious if they’re of any particular Christian groups, e.g. ones that have a purity culture vs. ones that don’t?
I didn’t think to investigate, but I might do that later today.
Huh, i would not have expected that either…is it mostly bdsm bondage, or is it posts about like, “spiritual bondage” that just choose some unfortunate tags?
It looks like literally just devotional posts, no BDSM involved. I know bondage is a common metaphor, but it’s still kinda weird that there are so many.
Adding a reply to this comment too just so you’ll get the notification and check back here. Unfortunately I can’t make a single comment that’ll notify you both.
Okay, now that I’m not at work… Here are some examples of the kind of stuff I found in the tag (offered for the convenience of anyone who wants to avoid the porn): one, two, three. Fairly standard stuff. I’m not sure I could pick out any denominational specifics.
