Flirting with the Dominant Paradigm

So I am trying online dating.  What else is a vegan heterosexual radical feminist to do?  A guy responds to my ad.  His profile name is Juicy Cucumber.  I don’t know whether I should laugh or swear perversely.  I do both.  Later today, I am reading feminist blogs, and I come across this by the author of How to be a Rad Fem:

One of the conundrums for us heterosexual Radfems is our sexual attraction to our oppressor. You know the man you’re attracted to probably doesn’t share your warm fuzzy (humane) feelings – and almost certainly watches degrading porn – but you want to run your fingers through his chest hair anyway.

And I laugh.  I really, really need to laugh.
