Because it has become a new BDSM meme

I have a Quote for you today, my rarified readers:

“Listen up, maggots. You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You’re the same decaying organic matter as everything else.”

And to Chuck Palahniuk’s succinct words I will add this: Just because you like to hit people, or you like to be hit; just because you like to poke holes in people, or be smothered, or be roped like a calf; because you like to prance around in pony gear or get it up the ass while being called a dirty pig…these things do not make you enhanced. They do not make you a special snowflake. The people in BDSM are no better, no more enlightened, no more immune to the stresses and foibles of the human experience.

Being in BDSM does not make you a better communicator than those who have found happiness in vanilla life. Having to have a contract, negotiation and/or safe calls does not make you especially edgy, taboo nor “responsible”. There is nothing amazing about flouncing about in a too-tight corset or frilly lacey underwear in front of near strangers. Your ability to take a caning or mind-fuck your partner to tears does not elevate you beyond your Suzie Homemaker neighbor.

BDSM is not the panacea to all your “issues” with your daddy or teacher or priest from years ago. It will not cure your “metnal illness” when the main root of the problem is your inability to understand, accept and perform within the constraints of adult life.

Everyone is unique. Which means that no one is. Quit trying to be someone superior, phenomenal, magnificent. Just fuckin’ be.

Remember:

You’re not your job. You’re not how much money you have in the bank. You’re not the car you drive. You’re not the contents of your wallet. You’re not your fucking khakis. You’re the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world.

  1. It might be better for all of us if we reminded ourselves of this set of truths on a regular basis. We’d perhaps be less arrogant, more tolerant, and in general easier to live with for our fellows on the planet.
