A mini-rant.

Here is a little rant about perception. About how others perceive us, and create clues for behavior where there actually are none.

Or... maybe it is a rant about identity. Self-identity versus perceived. Cultural norms vs. preferred treatment?

Jeez, I dunno. There are a whole lot of things I can attach to this little mini-rant.

But with all the pomp extracted, it all comes down to this - I wish people would spell my name right.

Boymeat. One word. Capital B.

Just because there is "Boy" in the name, doesn't make me submissive. And even if I did make that my primary identity,  I do not  subscribe to your system of "all submissive people must have their names printing in lower-case letters." Your assumption on that front offends me.

My identity is my identity. Stop trying to adopt it to your own comfort levels. Capital B. One word.

Thank you.

Okay, boy MEAT, you are to report immediately to my room. The restraints are already arranged on the bed. You'll know what to do with them.

(By which, I mean you'll restrain me so as to address my being a smart-ass... *g*)

Now, that is a great way to ask for a scene. Of course, I'd have to bring along my cane case...

Uh oh. I'm sure I'm guilty of this. Not because I'm into the whole "change English grammar to facilitate GOR bullshit" but because I tend to type LJ names lowercase. My apologies...

No, you weren't the intended target for this post.

Elegant. One word. Capital E.

Just because I am owned property does not mean my name is spelled with a lowercase 'e'.

Just because there is a capital letter does not make me a Grand Poohbah/Top/Master/Dominant/LordAlmighty.

Proper punctuation and grammar trumps internet usage in Master Archer's household.

Aw, I dunno. I've started to think that people who come over all "I'm a big scary dom and yer gonna do what I tell ya," on the internet, without learning anything about me, as if I'm gonna drop everything and comply with a complete stranger's attitude about my life (which, er, I've been living longer than they have, thus I know it way better than they do), are performing a valuable service.

They're sticking a big ol "I'm a dork" sticky on their foreheads so I can avoid 'em.

Then again, I'm a big huge guy who seems to intimidate people, so I almost never get this kind of dumbshit stuff in the first place. ;-)

Great meeting you last weekend, BTW.

Dude. I am so with you. Except that 'petal' is a lowercase, because it just LOOKS weird otherwise. Which does not mean I'm submissive. Even if I am. :P

Here here.

I'm Eric. I use "I". There *was* a time I used "i" and "eric" but then didn't feel the need anymore. (OK, there are a few people with whom I'll still lower-case, because I know they like it. What can I say, I'm all about pleasing... others... um...)

Hey Mr. Boymeat. I will be in NYC after Thanksgiving. I hope we can hook up.

I do believe some hooking up can occur. ;-)

I've so been telling people this shit for awhile. Though you probably said it way nicer than I do.

p.s. I heart me some damn Boymeat!

A recent event had my name spelled three different ways in one program book.

1) Boymeat - my bio, copy pasted from my website, the way I prefer

2) boymeat

3) boy meat

Now I'm trying to figure out how I normally write your name, since most of the time I see it on LJ. I think I capitalize it when I type it, but if I don't, I present my apologies.

I never did get that whole Uppercase/lowercase thing but then again I've never tried to dominate anyone with my shift key either :-)

Which, if you could work it out, would be interesting to watch!
