Other Opinions #43 – The Ethical Prude

This one is long and quite academically written, but well worth spending the time to read. It also deals directly and unflinchingly with some heavy and complicated topics, so I feel a general maybe-not-suitable-for-work warning is needed. The essay itself includes trigger and content warnings already which I will not reproduce here.

Yes, these links have pretty much nothing to do with anything else that’s ever appeared on this blog, but it’s my blog so I can do what I want.
