There is a "victim culture" in this country, although it is quite different from the "compensation culture".
The victim culture encourages people to feel bad about themselves, their lives, their circumstances, their relatives, their friends, the past, the future - in fact, about anything at all.
It is fed by other, ostensibly well-meaning individuals, often professional do-gooders, who see their own role in life as supporters of "poor victims".
Well I returned to a site I know and like. It's changed and yet it hasn't. It's a little hard to get across at times, there were some truly wonderful chatters when I first arrived here.
In those days I was fresh from an adult site and through an invite decided for a laugh to cheek out the crazy spankers as I believed back then.
And how times changed, this site allowed me a chance to meet my first spanking play person and the courage to look closer to home for someone to call mine.
After the end of my first genuine encounter with my particular kink, I lay beside a person who thought they knew what they wanted and one they knew for certain. So much misery.
And yet with the death of my father I saw more misery than this and asked then after the purpose and did not know, and do not know the purpose now; but now know to testify that; not knowing, I accept.
Saint Paul tells us by one's spirit are we all baptized in one body, whether we be Jew or Gentile,
Cautiously and gingerly I have traversed through the world of kink, and in such a short space of time have grown exponentially, and learned so much. Thanks to the patient, compassionate, gentle advice of genuinely nice people, I am now entirely confident that this world, whilst strange to me at present, is the right one for me.
I am reminded me of the Brian De Palma film, The Untouchables. As the FBI lead a liquor raid on the US Post Office; Sean Connery advises the handsome, moral crusader
As a young boy, I had a computer of my own, an oldish machine that could struggle only to play the most basic of games and yet, the one that captured my heart and imagination most of all was Sid Meir's Colonization.
A MS-DOS game, the premise was simple: take European colonists and settle in the New World, ostensibly charged with this lofty task for King, God and Country....only to then find yourself declaring your unilateral independence in direct defiance of the king.
