If you're kinky and you know it shut your mouth!

I am just sick to death of the "Freedom of speech just as long as you say what I want to hear" Bullshit that goes on at MDC. I started a tribe post for BDsM mamas whoch was not at all graphic or nasty. It has been shut down. What the fuck. We were discussing lifestyle issues that are near and dear to our hearts and it was very helpful to many people. It never got descriptive or naughty. Heres a tidbit that I gleaned from Mama-Drama.net (which is a far superior place to be IMNSHO)

Here is the original post that people were responding to in a very mature way.

BDsM mamas?
*grins* Surely i'm not the only lifestyler here.....*peers around, looking for other D/s mamas* If this is an inappropriate topic I appologize. The subject matter doesn't have to be graphic or sexual, Its just nice to connect with others who "know".

and in came the police

We don't host discussions of this nature. While a tribe is fine for getting to know each other and chatting, discussions that center around sex are not hosted beyond what our User Agreement outlines.

Then of course people were asking that they be able to continue said conversation as it is allowable through the user agreement

what!
this is ridiculous! Moderator did you read this thread? couldn't you see how much is was helping us and how much we got out of it? this thread was not at all pornographic in nature - just a bunch of like-minded mammas talking about an issue that obviously really needs to be talked about. Is there any way to appeal this decision or are we just stuck conforming to someone elses ignorance?

Cynthia, it's clear from the discussions being had here that it is not specifically about sex. In fact sex isn't even a requirement for one that lives this way, or engages in these practices. As long as the discussions doesn't include sex talk, can't it stay open? We have had threads about submissive wives, I really don't see this as much different.

I agree. please reconsider your decision. perhaps you are letting your own feelings about s/m dictate your decision. this thread is not about sex specifically, it is about how being mothers changes (or not) our feelings about our sexual selves and how we deal with that. please reconsider. you will be doing a great disservice if you do not allow this website

How about we take up a collection to buy Alfie Kohn's forthcoming book on unconditional management practices for the MDC staff?

I'm not feeling the "working with" here.

Anyone else?

(And no I'm not serious. I doubt they'd read it anyway.)

It's okay to be non-mainstream, gals, just so long as you do it in the MDC-approved way.

Signed,

Disgruntled


and this is probably my favorite post from that thread

OMG! I thought we all had virgin births here!

You mean these other women have had *sex*!?!?

How vile!

Sounds to me like this thread is well within bounds.
We're talking about post-conception sexuality changes.
Just because our definition of sexuality is broader than "normal", doesn't mean the rules are different for us. That would be discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, wouldn't it?

*end*

So, to anyone who needs to be free to speak what they feel without fear of being banished or humiliated for a lifestyle preference...I say, FUCK MDC, and come over to Mama-Drama.net. The water's fine!
