On Gorean Philosophy

July 19th, 2007 1 comment

This is sort of a rant and it’s based on a forum thread.  Buuuut, I’m not going to point fingers because I try not to do that.

Recently I was participating in a discussion.  The topic is irrelevant to what I want to rant about and would probably make clear who I’m discussing if they were ever to read this so in the spirit of not pointing fingers…

Can you tell I’m not sure how to start this?

So anyway, the place, as most places, caters to people involved in all facets of the D/s dynamic from dominant and sub to master (mistress) and slave to [[Goreans]].  I’m not really sure what category Master and I fall under anymore.  I’m also not sure it matters.  I know that we hold a lot of the same beliefs as true [[Gor]] (the philosophies that can be applied to real life, not the sci-fi aspect) but we also hold some beliefs that don’t seem to fit under any label hat.  But the point is I spent a good deal of time studying Gor and intend to delve back into the books and finish reading the ones I haven’t in the very near future.  I’m on book 18, I think.

I don’t claim to be an expert.  I need to read the entire series about ten more times for that.  But I know what I know.  And one of the most important slave-related Gorean philosophies is that a slave is a slave to all free people, men or women, and should behave as such.  Deference to the free is one of the first things a slave is taught.

Now, Master and I believe that women are naturally submissive.  Women should defer to men in all things.  Perhaps not necessarily enslaved, but definitely subservient in the least.

I’m not so stupid that I don’t know that not everyone feels this way.  I’ll even go so far as to say that I generally don’t discuss this belief to avoid confrontation.  It’s not worth arguing over.  You believe differently, neither of us is going to change the other’s mind, who cares? But Goreans agree with this belief.  At least, the ones in the books do, even if not all of the self-proclaimed Goreans on Earth do.

Regardless of this factoid, Goreans definitely believe that slaves should defer to anyone who is not a slave and sometimes to other slaves.  This means a Gorean slave should treat any dominant male or female with respect.  Even if the dominant in question is not Gorean.  Especially if the slave does not agree with something the dominant in question says.  And definitely if the dominant in question says something that irritates the slave.

Things In the Rear View

July 19th, 2007 No comments

People leave major imprints in my memory. I still remember
the names of all the guys I had crushes on in high school. First, middle and
last in some cases. I remember the cheerleaders who suddenly wanted to be my best
friends when I got pregnant and then got angry and lost interest when I didnâ??t
bite. I remember the men I whored myself to in my late teens and early twenties
to buy diapers and food for my children. And the friends that came in and out
of my life over the years.
