Day Ten: One confession
1. Unconscionable cruelty. Cruelty that is NOT the quick brutal sudden strike that soon fades, happens only once in a while, is quickly regretted. Cruelty that lasts. Cruelty to animals.
2. Making me feel weird or unattractive or awkward in my body. This isn't something that's restricted to lovers; there are people who are good at striking others down through comments about clothes or shape. That's a bitch move.
3. Speaking sexually, not letting me reciprocate. I mean--sometimes it's fun to just get and not give, yeah? It can be even sexier, even more intimate, to wait and let tension build until the next time. But over the long run, I want to be able to please my partner too; I don't want to feel like they don't want me to touch them. I've felt that. That's awful.
4. Disparaging my beliefs, my background, my family, and my religion. I am a Roman-Catholic transcendentalist who believes that god is in nature and God is in ritual and that we are all equal in the One. I come from an upper-middle-class family of Irish-Italian Catholics who make it a point to get new clothes for Easter Mass and new coats for Christmas Mass because that's what's Done no matter how much money you have. I'm deeply tied to the traditions of my family and culture. If you're going to insult any of that that then get out of my bed, get out of my room, get out of my life.
