Avengers in a nutshell: Thor
Anonymous asked: Is there any attempt to get rid of the word 'Daddy' in the D/s world. It implies child abuse with 99% of the general population and is about as pc as referring to your partnership as Master and Nigger. As a parent and a son it is excruciating to see parental ties sexualised this way and the number of blogs I see run by under-20s looking for a Daddy to abuse them demonstrates that consensual adult terms are normalised amongst vulnerable children. The D/s scene has a responsibility to change.
I understand that your message comes from a genuine concern for the welfare of young people. And of course I agree that children should be protected from sexual assault. For that matter, EVERYONE should be.
But on the point of the word “Daddy,” I think you need to broaden your view. “Daddy” has been used as a term of affection between lovers, inside and outside of BDSM, for sixty years or more. For that matter, lovers have been calling one another “baby” or “babe” for the last century. Do you assert that the writers of almost every love song since the 1920’s are endorsing sex with infants? That’s absurd.
Finally, I reject your comparison of “Daddy” to the “N” word. The “N” word has never been anything but an epithet, at least, so far as I know. Whereas “Daddy” is associated with a long list of positive attributes that have nothing to do with actual fatherhood.
So, rather than starting a movement to evict the word “Daddy” from BDSM, let’s focus on the important part of your message: actually protecting children from abuse.
Thank you. This is a wonderful answer.
Wow, your answer is perfect. Thank you.
Someone brought doggie cupcakes to the dog park….
This is my dog.
Re-reblogging because this picture still cracks me up every time I see it.
are we going to ignore the fact that that is a chocolate cupcake and that dogs are not supposed to have chocolate, hes probably dead nowUm,aherndanielle, I can tell you that JP is alive and well (a quick look at his blog would have shown you that) because that is not a chocolate cupcake. It’s a homemade, dog-friendly, peanutbutter cupcake. That’s why the term “doggie cupcake” was used in the original caption…
