Cursing

The trouble with language is the same as the trouble with just about everything else: stupidity. A living language is a fluid thing that changes with usage. The English of today looks and sounds very different from the English in Shakespeare, which in turn is different from the English in Chaucer. While change is not entirely bad, the trend I have witnessed during my own lifetime is change based most frequently on stupidity. It starts with a rule of grammar or precise definition and then people, in this case ignorant people, misuse the rule or word frequently enough so that the definition or rule changes ‘through usage’. As a result, adjectives are now adverbs and once precise definitions are “officially” muddied to mean almost anything the person using them wants them to mean.............all of it making clear communication more and more difficult.

Another complication is the misunderstanding, willfully or not, of a concept. One of the most frustrating things to witness is the person staunchly adhering to a religious precept or even scientific principle that they have completely gotten wrong. (The best example of this one, is the claim that “evolution is only a theory” by a person stubbornly unaware that the caveats and conditions for a scientific ‘theory’ are much more rigid and precise than those governing one’s theory on who took the last Oreo out of the cookie jar.)

But since this is an “adult blog”, I would like to explore an “adult” form of language: profanity.

Now ‘profanity’ itself has some interesting definitions ranging from the religiously blasphemous to the socially offensive. And under the umbrella of ‘profanity’ you have : cursing, swearing, vulgarity, and within religion, taking one’s god’s name ‘in vain’. All once very different things, now thanks to usage, all jumbled together as if there were no differences between them.

Cursing used to mean expressing a wish or even petitioning some supernatural entity to inflict harm on someone we didn’t like. By religious standards, this was condemned as a bad thing to do. And even secularly, it certainly reveals less than kind intentions towards our fellow man. Cursing also encompasses varying levels of malevolence from hoping someone falls on their ass to invoking a god or demon to strike someone down along with their entire family for generations to come. Now, however, saying ‘shit’ is considered ‘cursing’.

Swearing used to mean inviting retribution on oneself or one’s family in the event of breaking some pledge or oath being “sworn to”. It could also be merely inviting a god in as our witness to some personal declaration. (“I swear to god, I’m going to stick my foot up your ass!”) It is my understanding that the invocation of a negative action by a god, or even just including him in, for our own secular purposes is insulting and offensive to the god thus invoked. 

Vulgarity is simply using a coarser form of speech than polite society would care for. What I love (hate) about this aspect is the totally nonsensical way in which certain words become more reviled than others. I also enjoy the arbitrary ranking of things for unflattering comparisons. (Everyone wants to be a wise old owl, but how many want to be the male offspring of a female dog? ) Body parts certainly get their share of targeted use too. I think most people like penises ……..either on themselves or others……. and yet no one wants to be a dick.  (Personally, given my affinity for anuses, I’d much rather be an ‘asshole’ than a pancreas.)

But rather than go into every word ever used offensively, let’s look at three expressions: ass, fuck, and damn it. All are vulgar to some degree but over time ‘ass’ has worked its way into very common usage. (Who besides a nurse or Forrest Gump refers to a backside as ‘buttocks’?) And do people even mean ‘buttocks’ every time they say ‘ass’? If you call someone an ‘ass’, don’t you mean ‘jackass’? (See, we're back to those unflattering animals again.) And if you call someone a ‘jackass’, is that not just as bad as saying ‘ass’ without the ‘jack’? And if you say, “hmm, you have a sexy ass”, is that not a compliment.......... albeit a vulgar or possibly unwelcome one? Still, pretty far from wishing a person some horrific death, wouldn’t you say? But even society has softened on ‘ass’. Maybe because everyone has one and even acts likes one often enough, we just don't mind it as much. It certainly does not raise the number of eyebrows ‘fuck’ does.


And why is that? What is it about ‘fuck’ that bothers so many people that they feel compelled to refer to it as the “f-word” as if uttering it is akin to saying “Voldemort” rather than “he who must not be named”? It used to be a vulgar word for copulation and who hates copulation? It almost makes no sense as a true curse because you are sort of wishing something on someone that the person would probably welcome. Granted over time it has come to also mean being grossly taken advantage of…..and no one likes that. (I’d rather be fucked than fucked over.) And it also means being completely botched….as in ‘fucked up’. It can be used to express love and hate. (“Oh baby, I’m so crazy about you I’d love to fuck you all night long……What? You don’t love me? Ah, then fuck you!”) 


And maybe that’s what scares people so much about ‘fuck’…………it can mean anything and everything. So much power and potential in 4 letters might just be too much for some people.

But why resort to ‘fuck’ when there’s “damn it” or “goddamn”? Sounds harmless, it almost has a playful cadence. It’s most often just sort of a sigh of frustration everyone can relate to, though it certainly can be directed at a person. But here’s where I am confused. If a very large percentage of the objection to various profanity originates in religion, then isn’t “damn it” the worst curse of all? Personally, I’d rather go and ‘fuck myself’ at someone’s behest rather than be consigned to everlasting flames in a pit of despair. Because that’s what you’re really saying with that silly little phrase. And who exactly are you asking to execute that sentence of eternal damnation but the same entity who so stringently insisted that you not invoke him in such a manner?

One of my favorite observations on the whole “damnation-cycle” of cursing is the myriad of seemingly acceptable ways religious people find to get around it. Leave out the ‘god’ in ‘damn you’ or ‘damn it’ and well………technically…..you didn’t say his name. (As if someone else is capable of damning things.....though beavers are pretty adept at damming things)  And the whole 'wishing a horrific fate' aspect is fine I suppose because….well, you didn’t say ‘fuck’, right? 

And the best has to be “G. D.”! I know a fairly religious person who uses “G.D.” as if they were now protected by some divine legal clause. ( Um, if you believe in an all-powerful and omnipotent deity, don’t you think he knows he’s the “G.” in your “G.D.”? If I was that god, I’d be doubly offended…….first for having been invoked against my express wishes and secondly for being assumed an idiot.)

At the end of the day, it’s all just silly semantics. More people are offended by ‘fuck’ than ‘shit’, so a sex act suddenly is worse than excrement.  If through ‘common usage’ any of these words suddenly switch places on the arbitrary hierarchy of offensiveness who knows what the top curse words of the future will be? ( “trump you, you hillary!” )

It’s all just fucking ridiculous.

Grilling

I saw this mixed photo/computer art image a while back and felt that with BBQ season upon us, the timing was right to post it. Interestingly, this type of image is quite a bit of a departure from my usual tastes. In fact, I could probably list a dozen solid reasons why I should NOT like this image....................but I do. I actually like it a lot....or at least way more than I probably should.

I do think my ability to enjoy this little scene is due to its unreal animated look. If this was an actual photo I'd probably wince uncomfortably and move on. The very real consequence of the impaled young lady leaning too far over seems overly severe....but her expression is not one of terror. Something in both of their expressions comes across as if neither truly believes those sensitive nips are ever going to be in any real danger of being cooked and the position is more of a predicament to ensure willing reception of the strap-on.

Speaking of which, while the picture does not clearly indicate which orifice is being penetrated, I find I can only really appreciate the image if I assume that it's her butt being impaled. If I had reason to believe the penetration was vaginal, I would lose all interest and the predicament would lose its D/s charm.

Have you ever stumbled upon something that just hits you just right when your brain is saying "oh but that's so wrong!" ?

Ignorance=Bliss

Ah, but for whom?

While the imagery is clearly sexual, this sounds like something leaders within our 2-party system would secretly say about the American voting public.

As the election gets closer, I am asked more and more frequently "so who are you going to vote for, Trump or Hillary?"............as if these were my only two choices.  How depressing. In a land ostensibly based on freedom and where freedom is touted as the primary ideal, people feel locked into voting for what Gore Vidal had said was ....."two parties (who) are really one party representing four percent of the people." And I am not of that 4%.

I have been told that voting outside of the two established parties is "crazy" and a "waste of a vote". Well I don't live in a swing state, so regardless of what I do, my state is going to the party it always goes to. Thank you, Electoral College. (Remember how after the 2000 Jeb Bush "hanging chad" election fraud, everyone was for abolishing the Electoral College in favor of a General Election by popular vote? That fervor lasted.........oh, about two weeks. After that there must have been something really good on television.)

As for "crazy", well, I've never claimed sanity, but I do have to ask, 'what is crazier? voting for a Party that actually reflects your beliefs but will probably not win or voting for one who is far more likely to win but doesn't represent your views?'  Einstein said, "the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting a different result." Most people are clearly unhappy with the state of politics as it is, and yet they continue to vote in the same system they mistrust in the hopes of a difference. (And I'm the crazy one?)

I have been a Libertarian for a long time now. (though in the 2008 election they really pissed me off with Barr. ) Thankfully they regained their sanity in 2012 and are still back in 2016 to being a party and platform I can relate to. (And please don't confuse me with a Tea Party person. They like to claim a Libertarian stance, but  don't actually have one. Think of a staunchly Christian person who conveniently ignores any scripture geared towards love, tolerance, and warnings not to judge others, in favor of using scripture to further a position of intolerance and extreme judgmentalism. I also hate Tea-Partiers for turning the Gadsden Flag into their Party's symbol rather than having the creativity to come up with their own design. Now, despite loving that flag and what it says, I can't fly one without everyone thinking I'm one of them. Icon-ruining bastards!) 

So if you want a change, vote differently. Or you could just go on happily sucking on one of the two differently-flavored dicks attached to the same gloating elitist. Your choice.

Proxy

FINALLY! A new addition to the story section!

I tweaked the story I was bemoaning in my previous post and decided to put it up on the website. It is called "Proxy" and anyone who knows me from the various forums I frequent will recognize certain 'real life' similarities between the story and things I've talked about regarding my own domestic situation. So while the piece is not entirely an actual event, it is definitely drawn from a few.

If you are new to this, just click on the link to get to my main website on the top right section of this page, then navigate your way by links to the story portion of the site and then to the story itself (which has a helpful little "new" next to it!)

And definitely let me know what you think! (And if you've never been to the main website before, now is your chance to look around!)

I drew this piggy scene a few years ago to comically depict a familiar domestic reality. ( I'll leave it to you to figure out which piggy is Sofia, Ally, Ally's brothers,..........and me.)

Writer's Block


Well, OK, my "writer's block" may not be as dire as Jack Torrance's but I do seem to be suffering from it to a degree. I have a new short story that has been complete for well over a month. The story is technically finished and it has its moments........but something's missing. It's .......o-kaaaaay, but merely OK, and not what I would like to think a "KDPierre" story should be. I have been reluctant to post it on the website and have delayed doing so in the hopes that in re-reading it, some idea or added twist would pop into my head to rescue the piece from its mediocrity. But so far? Nothing.

The thing is, a part of me has been growing increasingly frustrated with writing spanking and BDSM-type stories without making a greater connection with my readers. I think I put out a good product and I have a small, loyal following that I genuinely appreciate, but it is most decidedly a small following. Those that 'get' what I'm doing seem to really appreciate it, but the majority of 'spank-story readers' either don't like the usually "F/m" orientation, or they find my stories to be implausible (even though many are based on actual events from my life.  Go figure.) In fact, I believe that my stories really only resonate well with people who actually live the lifestyle, but it seems that the majority of spank-story readers do not live it and many have never been on either end of a spanking. Reading (and writing) stories is how these people seem to cope with their unfulfilled spanking interests...................but it also makes these readers unfamiliar with the thoughts and connections I try to portray in my pieces.

It seems like a M/f story with a high degree of justice/comeuppance rings most of these people's bells. But not mine. In fact, I find I don't relate to most stories I read. Oh, there are a few that I really like, but the ratio of what I like to what is out there is depressingly low. And yet those very same stories that do nothing for me seem to resonate with more people than mine. Many stories I read seem like they've been written by people who have only imagined the activities they are writing about. They claim this should not make a difference, but it does. I can almost always tell when a spank-story author is a spank-virgin.

I appreciate the ring of truth even more than great style. It is why I would rather read a simply written forum post from a real person living the lifestyle than yet another schoolgirl caning adventure from a polished author. 

Like I said, it's very hard for me to find something I like. And now, I can't even write a story I like.

Maybe if I agreed to "hotel-sit" this winter?

"M-a-s-t-u-r-b-a-t-e"

Yes, folks, that's how you spell it. Don't let the scene below fool you.

It makes one wonder, 'is she being spanked for masturbation or poor spelling?' 

I can't even recall how often I've seen this simple word,which everyone seems to have no problem knowing how to DO, misspelled. (Maybe too many people still think of the old joke rampant in grammar schools of "Master Bates" to correctly spell the actual word.) Whatever the reason.................please, stop! (not masturbating, you can do that as often as you like ......or are allowed). No, I mean the misspelling. Enough already, world! Literacy is as least as important as personal self-gratification. And come on people, this is 2016! Even if you haven't got a brain.............you do have "spell-check".

I'm trying to be kind here, but if after I post this I continue to see this word presented as "masterbate", I'm going to be forced to point out the error. (possibly not kindly) I'm even trying to think of an appropriate penalty for spelling the word incorrectly, but most of the ones I've come up with violate the 8th Amendment.

So have some pride. Have some dignity. Have a modicum of intelligence. You can jerk-off without being one. So stop masterbating and start masturbating the way nature and the English language intended!

Perfect Martini

As something of a 'booze perfectionist', I am always in search of wonderful straight spirits, cocktails, and even charming glasses and ideal garnishes. In fact, I recently discovered an amazing cocktail of gin, Strega, and lime juice over ice, garnished with a sour cherry or two. (I serve mine in a hand blown glass with an elegant cobalt blue swirl.) I highly recommend it.

I also love a good gin Martini. My gin of choice is Blue Coat, a small batch gin made in Philadelphia. And I always found the perfect garnish to be two garlic-stuffed olives.......until I saw this:


Other than Rosa complaining about the freezing temperature of the liquids, she would probably find doing something like this fun and amusing. And for me? What better garnish for the perfect Martini than five perfect toes?
