I try to have the weekends off from blogging (writing a post that is), but i got all inspired when i read this recent comment.
Should what i write here take into account how it might effect those who read my words?, do i have a responsibility to those that read my words?
A comment left on my post http://painspleasure.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/a-long-really-long-one.html?showComment=1362866714440 if you want to read it in full for yourself, posed some questions, the commenter was anonymous, which is no surprise as the comment was shall we say very judgemental....and it didnt upset me..thats progress.
However as its question and answer month im breaking down the comment and answering it, and im going to try very hard to lay off the sarcasm!
1. Have you actually thought about what your submitting to?
Of course, although its hard to really gain a genuine understanding until one is experiencing it, in fact i probably over think too much.
2. Do you have any idea of what generations of women went through to gain freedom from the 'master/slave' dynamic?
I enjoy history very much, women have indeed fought very hard to be treated as equals..and so they should be, the thing is this (ie me and my Masters relationship) is based on consent, i have chosen this, as a woman i have chosen as is my right to live a lifestyle that makes me happy..i am truely free.
3. Do you realise that some people will think ALL women want this and therefore we are, indeed asking for it?
The people that may think this clearly have problems, because any sane individual that is balanced will know to separate right from wrong, and to think that all women want this isnt the workings of a balanced mind. Those that read me regularly have a more informed opinion, those that stumble on my blog might be a little taken aback because its a lifestyle they have no understanding of and they move on, some are even ignorant enough to voice their negative opinions when they clearly have no idea of what they are talking about..they read one post and draw the worst from it.
4. I expect you think '50 shades' is romantic?
gosh no, i thought it was shit!
Thankyou for your questions.
