Just to chime in, BDSM is about, you know, lightyears away from corporal mortification (which Silas performs). I mean, BDSM != whips and chains, though heavier BDSM certainly can. It's about blurring pleasure/pain, consent/force lines within predefined, honored parameters. Self-harm and corporal mortification are, you know, about guilt, self-loathing, repentance, and shame and have no ceiling and spirals out of control oten. BDSM is playing with people's comfort levels while totally respecting someone's right to stop the proceedings at any time. In fact, the submissive is usually the one really in charge--the dominant is putting on a show.

Edit: Khonsu changed the post, my post now looks foolish.

Anyway, Khonsu speaks the truth. And indeed, the cliched but still true point that the submissives have the power.

Confession: I used to believe I could fix my stammer, but then I found out that in addition to some basic flaws in the structure of my vocal chords, I have spasmodic dysphonia, both of these are on top of a considerable mental difficulty with forming speech.

Why is that a confession? Because it's something I never told anyone, anyone that cared just assumed I was on the road to speaking normally some day.

Confession: I would make the worst dominant ever, because all my partners, ever, have been able to at least pick me up and toss me and that's not terrible incentive to feel protected/coddled/intimidated.

@Khonsu: That has nothing to do with it, even if you're half the weight of the other person, you can still physically control them, and mental control has nothing to do with physical capability.

I know, but it's all about attitude, and I was raised to have a fearful attitude towards...well...everything because 'women are delicate and such and should be cared for and blah blah you're tiny, be wary blah blah.'

I needs me some Aikido so I can stop being a ninny.

Combat skills definitely improve confidence, even if it's not discipline.

Fencing really helped my self-esteem, of course, I was still rock bottom, and there was that one time...

Enough about that.

Anywho, you can do it Khonsu, you'll probably have to try a few times, but it's doable. Although, I was certainly raised with a similar attitude about what I should fear, only it was more along the lines of "women are inferior".

The most important thing you can have is confidence, I find, if you're confident in what you're doing, you can lead to the ends of the earth and back.

And, quick tip for combat, without necessary skills, the points to aim for are neck, groin, feet, and, if you're fairly strong, try for a frontal heimlich maneuver, or hit that little xyphoid bit.

Yeah, I have this urge to learn some kind of combat skill. Even if I knew there was no possibility of me ever using it. I would just feel so badass.

Maybe that's why I want to practise with my throwing sling so much, just so I could have the comforting thought of knowing I could kill a man at 20 metres with a rock, a piece of leather and string.

It must be some kind of primal urge in everyone (or in men at the very least), a desire to have killing force with some kind of rudimentary weapon.

Or maybe it's just me. But man, I so wish I was good with a throwing spear or something (see badass factor)

Yeah, I hear that. The few months I was able to take Muay Thai in my life were really happy months. I'm bigger on the peace and relaxation and alertness factors of a martial art rather than "I can kick people's asses," but the added bonus of self-defense is great.

My girlfriend does fencing. She loves it. It's really a fascinating sport. I don't know if I'll start it up with her, but I imagine I'd have to weight train first, because even foils feel heavy and awkward to me since I'm rather short.

Then yes, strength training may help you, though I think we're about the same size and I've worked myself up to using sabres. And, I do fence with Her, most days. (Though, I don't recall winning any such match.)

Mine's Aiki-go-for-ju-the-throat-jutsu. It's worked decently for me, but it's pretty hard to use in a real fight. Sneaking up and putting them into a rear naked choke works pretty well too, but only if you have the element of surprise.

Last time I surprised your mum with a rear naked choke, I ended up flat on my back on the ground. THAT didn't end well.

I otherwise avoid drawing attention to myself as much as possible, and prefer to do things myself.

And, now I have an SO, there's different attention there, and that's what I really like.

Confession: MY therapist is going to hate me. I decided that since all we basically do is small talk I would let him slightly into my inner mind and decided to do it in a letter I'll give him at my next appointment. I have the introduction and the first of five sections and have three completely full pages at size 11 Times New Roman. Atleast he can never say I didn't give him any information about whats going on in my head.

Confession: I'm TOTALLY FUCKING PSYCHED that I got this clone Cisco VPN client to play nice with the VPN servers at work.

This is after I had essentially written off EVER connecting any of my devices to those networks, because the fucking Cisco VPN client only comes in a working Win32 flavor that doesn't work well on Vista. It also "officially" has full 64bit/32bit Linux support, but it doesn't fucking work. All my hardware is either 64bit Windows, 64bit Linux, or 32bit Vista - meaning that the official VPN client just doesn't work.

But in the space of about 20 minutes, I installed a compiled a Linux commandline VPN client (that happens to be WAY less invasive than the real VPN client - no kernel modules, init scripts, etc. This is all just userland executable shit.), wrote some config files, wrote some shell scripts to point the client at those files at the click of a mouse, and HUZZAH, 64bit Ubuntu now has a working Cisco VPN client.

Now I just need to show my boss' boss' boss, because he swore it couldn't be done. And my boss' boss would probably like to know. My boss, on the other hand, is a fucking incompetent who's never even used the VPN.

Confession: I'm pretty sure that I'm about to go ballistic at the school administration.

1) They put six other people and me in a class that didn't exist. One of the kids even put it on his schedule a week before school. But the class didn't exist. Oh, and they didn't tell us until the second day of school when we were confused as to what we'd do for the year.

2) I got transferred to a different class that same period, but am I able to add another class right now even though it really wasn't affected by this (but it would make your job a whole lot easier)? The answer is no.

3) We are unable to change our schedules in any way the first half of the first week of school. [Rephrase: The forms aren't handed out. Actual changes aren't until the second/third week, when actual information has already been given out]

4) I want to add AP Statistics, but wait! That's hard to do because it's my second math class! Instead of looking at that specific class's student/teacher ratio (complaint #5), let's look at the number of students in the entire math department. Which I am already in, thanks. I also care more than 98% of those students about math and its applications.

5) The student/teacher ratio might go wacky! Somebody might want to transfer to that period! Somebody might want to change from incredibly difficult Math Analysis to even more difficult Statistics. Never mind this kid who wants to finish the last course at this high school because it looks interesting. Oh, and never mind the fact that I've been sitting in on the class the whole week and doing the work for it, the fact that one more student is added to the class (31:1?! OH DEAR LORD(S) NO!) is enough to not put him into this class.


Thank you, xkcd, for listening to my rant in disguise.

Confession: As I sit at work doing my job, as well as my manager's job, I realize that I will never get the promotion they keep blabbing to me about, and that when I am finished with my next degree, I am getting the fuck out of here. I am the only person in the department, apart from my manager, and his boss' boss, that has been here more than a year. Since March, we have lost 6 people. 5 resigned, and 1 was fired. The one that was fired sat at his desk and cried all day long, so it's no real loss. Oh, and I hate my job(s).

Err, the sort of attention I receive as a convalescent is not "how can I help you get better" but more "I'm here, and I'll ease your suffering"

I have exactly one Nickelback song on my computer, thanks to an anime music video. I remember having to fight through a feeling of being disgusted with myself when I went to download it. I haven't deliberately listened to any of their other music yet, for fear that I might like it.

Well you are a teenager. I think he's being more open than most would be. For a lot of people, love is a really strong word. "I care for you" is still sweet, but not quite the same as "I love you." I think he meant it that way. Like "you're someone I think is awesome and I'm attracted to but we're young and won't be togther forever unless we beat major odds," not "I don't give a shit about you."
