People like to boil things down to their ‘simplest’ definition.

The simplest definition also is the one that lacks nuance.

Paraphilias are thoughts and feelings.

If we believe that thoughts and feelings do not equate to harm, then we must believe that paraphilias are not inherently harmful no matter what they are..

However, many people are uncomfortable with discussing thee topics due to how taboo many of them are in our purity driven society.

Proshipping specifically is about fiction, so I can’t blame anyone who is proship for just not wanting to talk about paraphilia discourse. We don’t particularly want to discuss it either.

It’s a hotbutton topic.

As for where we stand, our position continues to be as with everything else, that thoughts are not harmful, only harmful actions are harmful.
