Yesterday we rose
They forget us all so soon
This is why we fight
My PTSD is being treated.
I’ve quit the job that caused the PTSD.
I have books worth publishing.
I have the right to vote.
Let’s do this.
I would have thought that a reasonable human being would know these things. However, I’ve lately encountered several who purport to be reasonable, rational, even logical. And yet they somehow fail to grasp these concepts.
1 – Yes, I am bisexual. I am attracted to both men and women. That does not automatically make me attracted to YOU and does not obligate me to sleep with YOU.
2 – I am a switch. Currently I am submissive. The fact that I am submissive does not obligate me to perform any sexual act YOU desire.
3 – I have a master. The fact that I have a master does not obligate me to obey YOU.
4 – I am kinky and enjoy BDSM. That doesn’t mean I am without boundaries and it does not give you the right to ignore those boundaries.
5 – I sometimes like to be spanked. That does not mean you may touch me without permission.
6 – I am currently submissive. That does not obligate me to clean up after YOU.
7 – There are other people who are allowed to handle my toys. That does not mean YOU get to handle my toys.
8 – I used to work in mental health care. That does NOT MAKE ME YOUR THERAPIST OR YOUR DOCTOR.
9 – I like hanging out with my niece and nephew. That doesn’t mean I like all children nor does it mean I’m obligated to entertain or be responsible for your children.
10 – Yes, that notebook does contain notes for the story I’m working on. No, you may not help yourself to it and I am not obligated to share it with you.
11 – Yes, I type fast. No, that does not obligate me to type stuff up for you.
