Sado-masochism builds character. A headline from the the CBC. Sounds about right. OK, it was in the context of a movie review. But, still, there it is.
I think I'm still allowed to speak out against sado-masochism, although who knows? New sexual identities and sexual identity rights are being created daily here in Canada -- witness this from Mark Steyn:
"The Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission's decision to impose a 'lifetime' ban on a local Catholic's freedom to publicly criticise homosexuality was upheld this week in its entirety by Saskatchewan Court of Queen's Bench." (However, in the interest of balance and fairness, there is no such ban that prevents a homosexual from criticizing Catholics.)
At any rate, to the existing set of approved sexualities, we can now, according to the CBC, add character-building sado-masochism.
Undoubtedly coming to a school near you.
