Over a year ago I met a woman at BYTE here in NYC, I don’t even remember how we started talking but we did.
She was very attractive, arguably one of the most physically attractive woman in the room. We were joking, she got my humor and we were really clicking but I needed to wake up early (damn work-night events). We exchanged emails and eventually decided to meet for drinks.
When I saw her in the bar I was taken back by how much better she looked in street clothes than she did in fetish wear.
We sat, talked about the lifestyle and somehow got on the subject of politics.
Then it happened. She revealed something about herself scarier than if she had said she was into forced-bi.
She was a Republican.
Not just any kind of republican, but the kind that doesn’t know why she’s a republican. She just repeated talking points she had heard on Fox News or some conservative radio show.
She quickly became unattractive.
Don’t get me wrong, I have Republican friends. Friends I love dearly. But they actually have thought and reason behind why they are who they are.
She was just a talking point repeater. There was no thought or feeling behind what she wanted and every reason she had was a greedy one.
She asked why I was a liberal and when I answered “empathy” she looked like a deer in the headlights.
She lost her attractiveness quickly after that.
So could I ever submit to a member of the GOP? Possibly. If they were the kind who actually thought about their beliefs and weren’t just blabbering on something they heard from a guy on the radio.
I think this goes back to a big part of what it takes for me to submit to someone emotionally. Respect.
I can’t respect someone who watches someone on TV spouting their agenda and assumes that their opinion is fact.
However, it could make for an interesting scene or two:
-She tries to beat me until I denounce the values of universal health care.
-Ties me up with rope she stole from Haliburton.
-Refuses to let me go down on her until I come up with 3 positive things Ronald Regan did.
Ok…maybe it’s not a hard limit. But it sure would be difficult.
