Well, my goodness! What a nice thing to wake up to and read. Thank you, and yes, I’m fairly free as far as humans living in a society goes and I’ve worked really hard to get there. The picture of Tamara in the If You Kiss Me Story is actually her. I love that photo of her because it shows not just a stunningly beautiful woman, but one who is in full possession of herself; her sexual self and all of her choices and that is something I find highly attractive. The only picture I’ve posted that is actually me is the one in the orange dress.

I’m also happy that you’ve begun to understand what I have had to say in a new light. I wish more men would see this — but it’s not just me. The vast majority of women who post stories are talking about things that are highly personal to them. As I said to James, most women don’t experience feminism as a political ideology. They experience it as the natural outgrowth of their lifelong experiences with being treated as childish, weak, unintelligent and on earth for the pleasure and enjoyment of men. None of which means that they hate men — they just hate being treated in that manner, and they hate never feeling safe most of all.

I look forward to further discussions with you as well. So, on to the next segment……..
