Submissive men are obviously awesome (hi, straight dominant woman here), and more people need to speak up about that fact, but what really got to me was maymay’s comment that Dev was saying the same thing he has been for years, but people pay more attention when a dominant woman says it. There are a lot of things wrong with the scene, and I’m not sure how much difference I can really make, but I can add my voice to the growing crowd saying ‘This is wrong. That’s wrong too. Fucking cut it out already!’.
Note: maymay’s name is all lowercase because that’s the way it looks on his blog. See further posts for more ranting about why I think S/slashy speak and capitalization rules are stupid and/or creepy.
