“The first task of the doctor is … political: the struggle against disease must begin with a war against bad government.” Man will be totally and definitively cured only if he is first liberated…”
— Michel Foucault
This quote is meaningful to me in relation to multiple arenas in my life, one of them being our freedom of sexual expression without fear of discrimination. I will be satisfied when leather practitioners and fetishists are represented and understood within our judicial system, law enforcement, medical and mental health systems. Until then professionals in these industries still have much learning to do.
