Vice Canada features a piece this week from writer Jade Orion entitled How I Reconciled Feminism with My First Step into the “Dark Side” of BDSM.

It’s a great read by a woman who is very clear that while she’s kinky and enjoys submission, she’s by no means traded in her feminist card because of it.

“Now, just to be clear, I am a card-carrying, argumentative, patriarchy-battling, colonialism-hating, pro-choice feminist. I am not one of those sniveling ignoramuses who thinks that declaring on YouTube that they don’t need feminism anymore is an enlightened idea. I’m a woman working in male-dominated industries who has experienced sexual assault. I am also kinky as shit and enjoy getting choked-out and giving and receiving bruises during freaky encounters.”

It’s also pretty fabulous endorsement of Metro Vancouver Kink’s signature event of the year, the Westcoast Bound Conference, happening this weekend, February 12-14.
