1. I am despairing that there are any stable, creative individuals left that aren't involved in their own groups, already. Every time I tell someone new that we don't tolerate drama and are as "real" as it gets, they will nod and smile - but do they stick around? No. I'm left to conclude that they find our sim and group "boring" because we don't allow people to beat up on one another or dump on one another. It's either that or they've seen SO much drama that they refuse to believe we don't tolerate it. I find this very frustrating.
2. Men, it's your turn. Listen - you can't treat women like shit in the concrete world, so what in the HELL makes you think you can treat them like shit in virtual worlds? The SAME women you have to treat with respect in the concrete world are the ones you find in virtual worlds. STOP already with the chauvinistic bullshit.
My SL daughter got involved with someone whose name I won't mention. Every time she's dressed in the least sexy manner when he's not around, he's grilled her about what she's been doing and who she's been with, as though she dressed on purpose to tantalize other guys. Ummmmm....NO. WRONG ASSUMPTION.
You cannot tell us how to dress in virtual worlds anymore than you could get away with that in the concrete, so get over yourselves or be willing to follow the same exact rules you try to impose on the women in your virtual life. That's right - it's a two-way street, guys. Don't be trying to tell the women what to do or treating them like they are sluts based on what they wear. You wouldn't want to be judged like that, would you? Apply the same sort of thing to the female side of the race and maybe - MAYBE - you won't get slapped so much.
Also don't be dictating behavior to the women in your virtual life. If they aren't wearing your collar and have a dom/sub contract with you, they are NOT your SLAVE. YOU certainly don't like being told what to do so stop doing it to women. Again, it's a two-way street and you really need to remember that.
Just because a woman has a strong personality does not mean you get to ignore her and talk to her husband. If she's in charge of something, you talk to HER - NOT her husband. You don't ass|u|me that the man is "in control". You treat her as an individual worthy of the same consideration you would want for yourself.
If you have a hard time with the idea of a woman in charge, you best go to one of the Gor sims or something like that - because that's the only way you're going to avoid them.
This is the 21st century and it's about time you get with the program, guys. It's not the 1950's though I wager you could conceivably find a space in an virtual world set up for just that...but if you aren't frequenting a scenario where it's obvious women are second-class citizens, then for the gods sakes, stop TREATING them like they are.
