Hence a serious problem in modern society. How many motivational messages plastered over pretty pictures are on your dash right now saying variations on “never give up”? How many romance and comedy action films involve. Girl rejecting boy who refuses to accept it and eventually wins her, at least for a night? Very romantic… Very dangerous.
Why should his desire for her automatically trump her own wishes… Why is refusing to accept no for an answer considered the ideal way to court someone?
As a society we are teaching boys that they are entitled to anything and anyone they want… And that there is no power greater than themselves.
Consent.. It is just as essential in mainstream relationships as it is in D/s, and part of consent is accepting and understanding rejection. If you don’t know how to lose like a gentleman you win like a douchbag.
Very well said, thank you.
