I don't understand what you mean... By "kink-critical" I mean that I think people should be aware of the social context in which their kink exists while also being able to enjoy their sexuality in a consensual manner which harms no being involved. I don't think that playing a game in the bedroom is inherently bad or dangerous. I do think that people should think about why they developed that kink and what it says about their perspective of broader issues of gender/power/violence. Kink critical does not mean censorship or shaming.

I don't see the problem. I think being kink-critical is good, but the kinkshaming or making something so taboo that we demonize people for having a friggin kink is blown way out of proportion. Getting so worked up about it takes the focus away from real world problems, like sexism, and puts the focus on a strawman like this kink..

I wish the author could have provided some specific examples or anecdotes. It was pretty vague and I would have liked to have seen the article more fleshed out. Do doctors listen to black women's concerns less? Are they less likely to check for risk factors?

Also, health has a huge impact on pregnancy and birth risk factors and unfortunately healthy lifestyles are not accessible to many underprivileged populations. I don't think "being black" is a risk factor in and of itself, but black women are less likely to be able to live as healthy of a lifestyle as their white counterparts, same as poor/wealthy.

If it decided that it's ok for them to move here, there needs to be the option to block it throughout one's personal account. Seeing this, even with a content warning, pop up on a feed could be triggering and damaging to members of the community, including me.

Although I do support people's right to choose whether to live or not, I do not want to hear or think about it at all. I do want to have the option of not coming into contact with it at all, with or without a content warning.

Or that we need to accommodate parents a certain amount without stunting their ability to have a career or to return to a career in a few years time and contribute to society in the way they so choose. Or that people shouldn't be working so many hours that they are forced to sacrifice family, personal life, and health.
