BDSM Man Finds Life Difficult in #MeToo Climate

HOLLYWOOD, FRANCE

Amidst numbers revelations about bad behavior ranging from abuse to rape among cis heterosexual men in the BDSM community, one member of the community is taking it particularly hard.

The unfortunately named Michael Cishet (pronounced \ciz-et\), 42, has found himself under particular scrutiny after a rash of posts on Fetlife accusing “Cis Het” men of abuse and demanding they step down from all positions of power and authority within the BDSM community.

The 40-something Dominant was confused at first.  “I saw my name popping up in dozens of posts.  It was very disconcerting, because I only use the scene name Doctor Devious and never my real name.”

It took several days for Cishet to realize the posters were talking about a gender identity and not about him personally.

“It was a relief at first, until I realized they were still actually talking about me.  Not just me, but I am definitely still a cis het male.”

For social activist June Malik, 19, it was a distinction without a difference.  “Just because his name is Cishet, doesn’t mean he isn’t a rapist.  It is all about intersectionality.  Radical intersectionality.  It is time to end the patriarchy and I say we start with cis het men named Cishet!”

While some people see the whole issue as amusing, Kimberly Whitemale said she was able to sympathize.  “Sometimes we get judged by our names and it gives people the wrong impression.  I was adopted from Korea as an infant, but it doesn’t stop people from attacking me.  Plus I am a woman.”

Cishet hasn’t lost his sense of humor, asking if Whitemale was single.  “We could get married and take each others names, so we could be the Cishet-Whitemales.”

Malik, when asked about the humorous combination of names simple remarked.  “That’s not funny.  There’s nothing funny about oppression.”
