Women are superior to men
This is a sentiment that flowed through many of the emails I got in response to my houseboy search, and it made me cringe every time. Sexism does not magically become acceptable when it puts women in power. Furthermore, describing one group of people as fundamentally superior to another for the purposes of one individual’s sexual or emotional gratification plays into a history of oppression I would prefer to leave outside my bedroom.
This is the kind of thinking that has aided in the oppression of women and minorities, and fueled genocide, apartheid, and ethnic cleansing. On a more personal level it disregards the experiences of submissive women and switches, and puts an undo pressure on dominant women.
A naked man kneeling in front of me waiting to do my bidding is a hot fantasy. Being able to buy one at a slave auction is a hot fantasy. There is a difference, however, between fantasies of slavery and reality and I have this nagging fear that some of the people who responded to me are not aware of that. We have tried slavery, and we as a society have decided against it over a hundred years ago.
And as an aside, the last man who said “I’ll do anything, mistress” was relieved of his pants and sent down the block to fetch coffee. You might want to consider the range of anything before saying something of the sort.
