A thing happened on facebook, and I want to know whether I handled it okay. A lady posted this status on facebook: Poster: Everywhere I look on the Internet I see pictures of submissive women. I'm sorry but if someone tried to make me submit, I would kick him in the balls. She is involved in publishing erotica, so I was confused to see her saying this, seeing as submissive or not, I expect her to be sex-positive. Anyway, she revised: Poster: I think some women are subs but the world is crazy for it now bc of one book [50 Shades]. Most of us can't live that way bc we don't want it and never will So I'm not too angry at her. Everyone hates 50 Shades. But then these comments happened: Lady 1: I hate all this submissiveness crap. I'm with you, Em. I would kick them in the balls too Man 1: No submissive woman is as attractive as an agressive woman - my opinion. Lady 2: Have to say, if someone snarled along the lines of 'get on your knees at suck it, b****, I'd be far more inclined to laugh, accidentally knee them and croon 'you didnt say please' as I walked out the door. Lady 3: AGREE!! I see it everywhere. I cannot write the submissive woman. I can write the strong kick your teeth in woman. I can write the street smart woman. I can write the calm, cool, I can handle whatever the world throws at me woman. I can write the world weary independent woman. And all my heroes are men who can pull the more vulnerable side out of these women. The women cry, get hurt, and ingest lots of brownies and booze, but they never submit. They're just too strong. If someone tried to put a dog collar on them, they'd attack like Cujo. HHHHHMMMM......I feel a blog post coming on. Lady 4: Forget the balls...punch them in the throat, if they keep moving, heel palm to the solar plexus...either one will interrupt breathing. Take no shit, ever. Anyway, I had to respond. This is where I'm wondering whether I'm okay. ETA- There were, of course, several comments defending female submission and male dominants as well. But they're not the ones that stick out.
