2012-04-30: I had the great pleasure of speaking with Harriet McDougal Rigney about her life. She's an amazing talent and person and it will take you less than an hour to agree.

But you still have this blind spot. You keep using the word "consent" with masochists. To some relationships this is appropriate, but it seems you don't understand that sometimes the partner isn't a...

I read the Tylin stuff as Mat discovering a completely new side in his sexual nature. It fits in with what he feels when he leaves Ebou Dar and later when learns of Tylin's death.

You really don't get it. At all. You really can't accept that someone would feel differently in that situation. Why do you insist other people are like you?

See? Your mind is so innocent. You don't understand what it means to be a masochist. You insist all women are alike in this. Your mind can't understand being excited when dominated. To you it is a...

Your mind is closed. You want it to be so that only evil people do harm. You want mental shortcuts for labling someone as evil and thus defining what they do as harm. Your mind goes round and round...

Well that is a bit tougher.

For the moment I'll go on a tangent. Is blackmail a robbery or is it a completely different crime? If the price of silence is sex rather than money, is it then rape or...

Seeing as that might result in either one you clearly don't. You are focusing on what happens before the act when the difference is in what happens after and during.

I'll ask again. Do you...

Not sure if you truly understand the difference. Do you understand and apply it to this or is it that you don't understand and can't see other alternatives?

So you don't understand the difference between being raped and being ravished. Not sure if you have fully explored the concept of a masochist either.

I was thinking of Mat in this one actually. But since you ask I'd say what Alanna did to Rand would be one and what Elayne did to Birgitte would be the other. That was forced bonding too after all....

We can work around our limits. It is about admitting that logic is above you. You can't decide what it is you can only observe it. It is quite depressing how often the logical answer is "we don't...

Kind of wishing for that zombie apocalypse now. Cut world population to 0.1% and overuse of natural resources drops pretty damn dramatically.
