I don’t enjoy bratty behavior from spoiled children, obnoxious teenagers, entitled cats, or immature adults, and I certainly don’t enjoy ‘bratty’ behavior from a partner.
The idea of a partner acting like brat as some sort of role-play game is immensely distasteful to me. The whole *giggles* *grins* *tee hee* *wiggles bum* thing isn’t cute. That’s just me, though. Plenty of people enjoy it, but I don’t. I really, really don’t…. it makes me want to punch you in the face and tell you to grow the fuck up.
If being ‘bratty’ isn‘t part of a role playing game — if the ‘brattiness’ is genuine — then ‘brat’ = ‘immature asshole’, right?
Honestly, I find it difficult to tell whether people are role-playing, exaggerating ‘flirtatiously,’ manipulatively deploying behaviors, or whether they’re really just genuine ‘brats’ (assholes). Lucky for me, the distinctions make no difference. I don’t enjoy people who role-play being assholes, people who exaggerate their asshole-ness, people who strategically deploy asshole-like behaviors, or genuine, honest-to-goodness assholes.
I don’t enjoy those sorts of power games — I won’t ‘make’ you, ‘tame’ you, or ‘conquer’ you… because you aren’t a child, a lion, or an invading army. If a potential submissive wants to be treated like a child, a lion, or an invading army, then he should look elsewhere.
I’m a grown-ass woman with a career and a mortgage.
And if I’m fucking someone with any regularity, it’s safe to assume he’s a grown-ass man with communication skills adequate enough to tell me what he needs rather than acting like an asshole.
If he wants attention, he can ask for it. If he has a problem, he should tell me.
But if he’s into being tamed or forced, or if he’s into role-play, then he out of luck, because I’m not going ‘deal with’ bratty behavior.
