Dear Phil, you idiot.

Dear Phil,

Please stop getting involved in pointless arguments about leather protocols and history on FetLife with people who refuse to remove their heads from the holes they are in. You have learned this lesson before, and yet you insist on continuing. May I suggest you bang your head against a brick wall instead? The bricks will accept your argument much quicker, you will feel a much greater sense of accomplishment and satisfaction, and the resulting major trauma will allow you to forget all about FetLife.

Love, your caring and loving self,
Phil

What is it that they say about repeating the same actions and expecting different results?

In my day, we only banged our heads against cinder brick walls. Those who bang their heads against other types of walls today are disrespecting or completely unknowing of the old guard traditions, and aren't really hardcore.

Oh Sir, thank you for correcting this ignorant pup! I shall put band-aids on my head, beg humble apologies to the ordinary bricks, and immediately find the nearest cinder block wall and bash myself double!

Thor... you are the greatest.

According to everyone in this group I am suffering in, you did it totally wrong... in fact, you came to your leather life completely differently than you remember!

Yeah, I've been watching that one...I decided you were doing great and didn't need my help, LOL, and plus there are certain people in that convo I do my best to not have even "pleasant" conversations with.

...if only for the white-on-black of the site. And the endless scrolling because the columns are two inches wide.

I have avoided that one like the plague! (although you didn't just get involved...you started that thread)
boymeat

Yeah, I did. Because I'm sick and fucking tired of people eschewing their bullshit as fact. That anyone has to be viewed and judged by these people and their false ideals and beliefs.

Am I an idiot? Yeah, maybe. But I'm just tired of it.

This is why I cannot even open the fucking site without shooting myself in the head

The shooting myself in the head part is to prevent pointless arguments

You do it because that blinding rush of anger and frustration compels you to AND it makes us all chuckle. Besides, maybe...just maybe...someone has learned. (ha! ha! ha! well, it *could* happen.)

*off to view the thread*

I don't know, bashing ones head against the wall knowing that you are really pissing the fools off more than they are getting you is pretty satisfying to me.

Phil,

Ah, I see you've now had the distinct pleasure of encountering the good Mr. Brawner and his Revealed TRUTH! TRUTH that you, being the pissant poser straight boy will never have Revealed to you because you, being but the pissant poser straight boy, are just... well... you're just a pissant poser straight boy!

So there!

Now go run along and stop bothering your betters what with all your pissant poser straight boy blathering!

Hmph!

Yeah, I've "encountered" the good Mr. Brawner a couple of times as well. Our "encounters" ended not well as well. Pity, that.

As you've noticed he does view his experience as being absolute and universal to all gay leathermen. And any gay leatherman who doesn't have that exact same experience is not, therefore, a "real" gay leatherman.

Of course, those who aren't even gay like Wayne need not even bother for us folk will _NEVER_ share that same Enlightenment.

Sigh...

I hope you got all that out of your system there me boyo. At least for a little while. I think you gave a whole lot better than you got but thems that be doin' the givin' on the other side are wedded to their sufferings so insufferably that you'll never be to changin' their ways.

It was kind of ironic that one of the posts on that thread accused me of "not being able to see the forest from the trees." I chuckled at that one.

So I know very little about these things, and I'd like to keep it that way. Can't we just define the way that we each want to do things, find like-minded folks to have the really deep connections with, and then just connect with the other people as friends or acquaintances?

Or am I, by definition, wrong because I started using the internet when I was 11 or 12?

Of course we can.

The debate I was having was a more historical one... trying to keep the record straight about what happened in the past vs. the stories some people tell and convince themselves about.

Leather history is a hobby of mine... and pointing out flagrant discrepancies has become one of my projects, despite the frustration it often brings me as a result.

Ah, I should stop assuming what the debate was. But since I know I know very little...

It's a pity that logic doesn't work on emotive issues.
