Anonymity is quite important to some of those (like me) who has lots to lose if certain people find out about our involvement in the BDSM community. Literately, if I was found out by grandparents I would be kicked out and homeless.
I know it’s not just me. I have a job but I don’t make enough to pay a house bill and so I live with family. For those wondering, I clean my own laundry and help out all the time. But unfortunately with the views my grandfather has I would probably kicked out flat on my ass if someone found out, and I’m not sure if what I would do then.
So just a sneak little peek into my own life, and just trying to express anonymity is important for some people – if you see someone from a munch don’t just talk about BDSM right in front of their friends and family. From just identifying someone as part of the BDSM community can end relationships, cause family feuds, and tarnish their reputation in their communities, and children can be taken from their homes.
Obviously there is much more to lose, their self-respect, self-confidence, and become depressed by the reaction of the public to their association to the BDSM community.
So unless someone relinquishes this information willingly in public, you have no right to do so for them, and should be ashamed if you do so. I know that the public shouldn’t have this sort of reaction but it’s the current condition – defacing someone in public is a crime and should be treated as such.
