I HAVE A fucking QUESTION
If the Children (newbies in the leather community) ￼are our future… Then how are they/ them supposed to know better, so they/ them are equipped to be better? ￼
WHO’s stepping up to the plate to guide and mentor O/our youth? Without any standards or guidances including guidelines wouldn’t this led to chaos￼?
WHO’s putting the “D” back into BDSM ?
￼All that W/we do in Leather culture is FUN!
If it’s done RIGHT!
(To me it’s a red 🚩flag to be reminded to have fun in my kink, but, that’s just my prospective/ experience)
However, let’s also remember that all that even though what we do is FUN. We also have to consider that what we do is also DANGEROUS!
So…. If there’s NO one watching “#gateKEEPING” it’s also possible that YOU are NOT safe!
In order to create a “SAFE SPACE” someone has to Show Up and Show Out to gateKEEP and keep You safe.
As a D/type in leather CULTURE, I was told that my #1 RULE is to PROTECT THE PROPERTY.
To me that means, it’s my mission to GateKEEP the ppl I care about the most!
I now realize that I don’t have the CONSENT to Love everyone we call community members. Because we all
have the right to show our love directly.
I an quite aware of the forces that exist within this community that ￼wish to erase / hush any BLACK VOICES, especially one that speaks of any #TRUTH￼. to keep our Tribe/ villages from harm So they can take advantage of our young.
Their goal for our youth, includes the freedom to run rampant, with no expectations of any￼one watching or protecting their best interest.
They goal to oppress anyone from gate keeping so our young becomes easy prey￼ for their disposal￼.
I may have hurt a few feelings (apologies in advance it’s never my first intention) ￼with my post #keepingGATE. However I would rather hurt just your damn feelings, than leave you at those who would have you dead!
