Pride Month is almost over and I realize I hadn’t said a word about it! You’d think an open minded Kink Mistress would be “all over that” subject, yes? Well I am, everyday with everything I am and do. I support those who have found themselves discriminated against, bullied, harassed and worse, for basically being themselves. How horrific is that! Imagine waking up tomorrow to a world which looks scornfully upon you just by being who you are.
Pride Month Awareness
The thrust behind pride month (pun not intended, HONEST!) is to bring awareness and promote discussion and tolerance to the general population. Although I don’t go out and protest or march with my LGBT community doesn’t mean I don’t have any interest in the struggle. Doesn’t mean I don’t support them. But my support , like many other of my Sister Mistresses, comes from a continued awareness, through our blogs and posts regarding people’s sexuality and and lifestyle. Fostering a common thread of acceptance for what you bring to the table and inspire others to do the same
Helping some with their struggles with gender identity, and providing a safe place for them to “be”. That space is invaluable for many I engage with. They are unable to, or unwilling to confess their secret desires to the ones closest to them they yearn to be “KNOWN” and be treated with dignity and respect. Something everyone can identify with, you can, can’t you?
Some of my thoughts on the subject
Western Culture and Homosexuality
So the evolution of our popular modern cultures dictated “norms” for our lives over the last couple of thousand years. How to behave to be looked upon favorably by the group, to be accepted into a kingdom of ever lasting life, or divine favor *yadda yadda yadda*. Those teachings excluded homosexuality. In the time-line of human evolution, these rules are kinda late in the game! Homosexuals and homosexuality isn’t something new.
History And The World On Homosexuality
There are numerous articles out there from those who’ve studied homosexuality in animals, including humans and truth is homosexuality has been “with us” since the beginning of our species. Although , there might not be proof or evidence of the same a simple logical test can be applied for my statement to ring true.
-There are homosexuals today.
-The ancient Greeks are renowned for their practice of homosexuality.
-There are the American Indians who believe (as many other cultures do) that there are at least three “sexes”. Male, Female and a third which encompass both male and female “soul”.
-Homosexuality is not only limited to the human animal.
-It would be a larger leap of logic to assume homosexuality was some how “introduced” in the very small time line of 3,000 years and didn’t exist for the previous 300,000 years of our evolution.
Tolerance For The Modern Human
Tolerance, easy to say difficult to assume and behave in kind. Tolerance for “difference”. In some ways I understand humans knee jerk reaction to difference. Humans are meant to be social creatures, we run in packs. Without the group/pack there was grave danger for our ancestors. Compared to the majority of predators, our frail body’s just can’t compare to theirs. So, fitting in and being a valued member of the social group was necessary for survival. If the group looked unfavorably towards you, you might be shunned. A death sentence for many. So our brains adapted to a “group is all” mentality. We evolved into animals needing to “please” or at least be accepted by the group. Follow that through and anything “different” was to be feared, for what if the group didn’t accept, what would happen to you? We look to the group for guidance. For all of our developments, and evolving we might think we’ve done over the past few million years, that group dynamic is still very much important to humans.
Evolving Past The Group Mentality
It’s time now, in our evolution, to use our brain and our ability to recognize difference isn’t necessarily “bad” and without difference none of us will be here. We are all different, it is only a matter to what degree. It’s time for us to use our critical brains to question and validate (or not) our community’s or religious teachings and ask ourselves: “how does that change my life”. How does a male who wants to have intimate relations with other males change you or your life. What difference does it make to you, and your ability to provide for your family if Jane down the street used to be John? Fact is: It doesn’t. Not unless you make it. Homosexuality and gender identity differences have been around since the dawn of human kind. Now is the time some worried about themselves , their impact and legacy. Stop trying to control and change, things that will make no difference to them.
Life is short, don’t spend time on hating. Your life will be that much more rich when filled with love, tolerance and respect for all creatures around you. Pride Month and every Month, I support you and your sexuality.

Thank you Aaron Craine! Beautiful Gay Man! ????
Oh Ms Erika thanks you for your attention on this. I realize I have not either. This post was much thought out and I so appreciate the sentiment. Wit all of the transgenders, gay friends, and so on, I must get my post together to celebrate how much I appreciate PRIDE!
Thanks for stopping by Ms Cassandra!
I get what you are saying, we live our lives full of acceptance and filled with all the “colors of the rainbow” We live what pride month hopes to promote . Seems kinda redundant for us ! 🙂 See you around the Empire!
Though I’m not gay/into other guys I’ve decided I’m going to start dressing up as a girl more and more. Seeing how I look dressed up I do look better this way. With my friend taking pictures of me with her phone dressed up, she’s accepted this as she already has me wrapped around her finger and her nails firmly dug into me with no intention of ever letting me go as I don’t want her to. She has me using same facial lotions creams along with perfumes and lotions. Giving me 5 of her old bras/picking out dresses/blouses/women’s pants for me. She’s married but told me not to worry about her husband. I respect this as I don’t want ruin her marriage. I want to have her help me with my feminization-no sex change but her on monthly basis taking pictures of me with her phone dressed up. I’m not going to worry about what others think or care anymore. At my age most women are married with kids and I’m not and girls I know have put me in friend zone. When I’m with the girls I’m going to wear my yoga pants/ankle boots/panties/bra/perfume mixed with lotions and hope they notice. I can finally start to dress up as a girl at home as it’s whats best and needed for me.
Paulina , Pride Month is also about openness and acceptance for all “kinds” of sexuality and gender identity dysphoria. So you certainly have some “skin in the game”. Thanks for stopping by!
Good insightful post Goddess Erika. I have a gay relative and they are very cool people. So i have always been nice towards them. Let people be who they are supposed be and live the way they want. As i always think that the USA is supposed to be a free country with individual liberty.
Thanks tftt, you are right. People are people are people. Some are awesome , some suck and it doesn’t matter WHO you sleep with, or what’s in your panties, you could be either awesome or sucky regardless.
What a great post, Ms. Erika! And I think you’re right about Pride Month Awareness. I totally feel it’s about awareness, tolerance, learning, and discussion as you said. And it makes no difference at all on what our interests are or who we might love. And I think you’re right, we really do make a difference when we create that safe space for sharing things that can’t always be shared elsewhere. For me this feels like one of the most wonderful and beautiful things we can do! 🙂
I adore you, Woman!! ((((((((((((((((((( HUGS))))))))))))))))))
