The right has coined the term “cuckservative,” and CNN replies that cuckolding is “positive.” Full Perversion Mode

In response to the politically degrading term “cuckservative,” CNN accelerates their Perversion Drive to Warp 10.

I don’t approve of the term “cuck” or “cuckservative” in political discourse, but it is used by alt right/new right people to refer to open border, Never Trump, and other types of “conservatives.” It refers to the perversion of cuckolding

So, CNN digs up a reason to claim that cuckolding isn’t bad.

Are these anti-family degenerates claiming the right to condemn us for opposing abortion or voting for Donald Trump?

CNN reports, “Cuckolding can be positive for some couples, study says.

In our current political climate, the term “cuck” — short for “cuckservative” — has become an insult of the so-called alt-right, aimed at men they view as spineless and emasculated. The slur has its roots in the concept of cuckolding, or having an adulterous partner.

But, according to a recent study by David Ley, Justin Lehmiller and the writer Dan Savage, acting on cuckolding fantasies can be a largely positive experience for many couples, and hardly a sign of weakness.

References to cuckolding appear in literature as early as the 13th century, usually in the form of male characters who fear that their child has been sired by another man during an act of infidelity. Today, however, cuckolding has become fetishized into a powerful sexual fantasy for some men, who get aroused by the idea of their romantic partner engaging in sexual activity with someone else. Women also share this fantasy, but less so than men.

Of course, to mainstream this perversion beyond the level of self-reported imagination, they have to tinker with the definition of marriage.

Initially viewed as a heterosexual phenomenon, it’s increasingly prevalent among gay men, too. “I’d long gotten letters from straight couples into cuckolding (usually initiated by the husband), but none from gay couples until after marriage equality began to gather steam,” explained writer and activist Savage. To learn more, Savage joined with Lehmiller and Ley for a study of cuckolding fantasies and experiences in 580 gay men.

Their findings suggest that there are similarities between the way gay and straight men view cuckolding, but clear differences, too. Most notably, interracial and BDSM themes don’t appear to be as common in gay men’s cuckolding fantasies as they are among heterosexual men. The motivations behind these fantasies may also be different.
