Exactly. I only mentioned Žižek because I like his style and because I think there is something to this lie that people (mostly cis straight men) are essentially seeking women out for what previously were paid services by claiming they are offering the women some opportunity under the umbrella of ENM as some sort of subversive "movement"
@jessmahler @olamina @danielscardoso to be clear I'm pretty much a normie but I'm also not ENM just on the outskirts. And yeah I'm sure many people especially on dating apps will use it as a term to make hookup culture seem sophisticated.
I don't think any of my practicing friends have time for meetups outside their own circles, and they seem just as frustrated by chasers and sleazebags in the dating scene.
That doesn't mean some folks aren't using historical dressing to push a capitalist agenda, intentionally or otherwise.
The more I think about it, the more complicated I think it is, with some folks doing exactly what @olamina is suggesting, and others drawing on other philsophies.
