I didn't know where else to put this, so I'll just leave this thought here. There was a recent caption, entitled "Chastity", which you can find HERE. The reception for it was sort of lukewarm. Some liked it. Others didn't. But that's not the point of this post. The reason I'm writing this is there was a comment on the my Tumblr post of the same image, saying, "Don't like the domestic abuse that led to it, but this is hot."
I'm glad that the person liked the caption as a whole, but seriously - what? This caption, if you haven't read it, depicts blackmail and abuse going the other way (which went on for quite a while). But the person who commented had enough of a problem with the inciting incident that he simply had to say something.
Looking at this person's history, it quickly became apparent that he has a taste for rape fantasies, kidnapping, abuse, and humiliation. None of those are uncommon, and I'm certainly not in any position to judge anyone based on his/her kinks. But it struck me as extremely hypocritical for this person to draw the line at domestic abuse (directed toward a female).
But that's just the latest example of hypocrisy in this medium. It shouldn't surprise me, because I encountered something very similar when I first started writing in this genre. The first stories I published were in the Omar Bell Universe, so you can imagine that there were those who found them distasteful. The problem I had was that these people (some of whom wrote kidnapping and forced feminization/sex stories - emphasis on the "forced part"), like the above comment-er, were absolutely fine with all manner of illegal, immoral, and downright nasty kinks - so long as they were THEIR kinks. The second someone had a different fetish that veered into the same morally ambiguous territory, they got on their collective soapbox.
It makes so little sense to me, and I felt the need to post something about it. I've railed against it before, and I know it does no good, but I can't help it. Maybe I'm the weird one - it certainly wouldn't be the first time.
