Don’t have a blue Christmas… be merry!
Or be drunk… or whatever…  :)

  1. I hope you have a merry (or drunk… or both, if so desired) Christmas, and may this coming year bring you all sorts of happy and wonderful things… You know the kind I mean.

  2. Merry Christmas DD. Thank you for sharing your life with us.

  3. [Literal] objectification is not exactly the greatest present that a cognisant being could hope for at Christmas from one of their favourite blogs.

    Like a good menu, humour is often context sensitive, but the “humorous” representation of an entire group of people as a chastised tree with literal, physical blue balls is about as sophisticated as racist representations certain minorities within mainstream culture.

    My opinion may be informed by the fact that I entirely lack a sense of humour (it was removed with a blunt spoon when I was ten years old). For example, I sympathise with those who disagree with objectification of women in popular culture, and those who resent the disproportionate representation of blacks as criminals in what we see of American news reporting.

    However, despite my lack of a sense of humour and my being a prickly asshole (like an inverted hedgehog, I suppose) I do feel that there is a point to be made here.

    I really feel that we’re all … more … than this. Or at least hope so.

    Shitty, patronising grrrumble over. Have a most merry new year!

    Yours,

    An X-mas Humbugger

    • Dear X-mas Humbugger,

      My opinion may be informed by the fact that I entirely lack a sense of humour (it was removed with a blunt spoon when I was ten years old).

      I’m sorry to hear about the removal of your sense of humor, especially by means of a blunt spoon. I imagine it was a wooden spoon, which may have left splinters, and that might explain your inverted-hedgehog-prickliness. :)

      Not that it should matter or blunt the perceived offense, but this isn’t my tree, I didn’t solicit the photo, and it wasn’t intended to be a symbolic representation of a submissive male.

      A friend-reader-crush sent it to me because he thought it would make me laugh (and it did!). He hung his toys, plugs, clamps, rings, and whatnots on his tiny tree, topped it off with a cage at one end and “blue balls” at the other end, snapped a pic, and sent the photo to me with this text: “My themed holiday tree is up and it’s fucking beautiful! What it lacks in originality is more than made up for by my excellent execution. I wanted to share. :D”

      I really feel that we’re all … more … than this. Or at least hope so.

      Again, it wasn’t intended to be objectification — symbolic or otherwise. It was intended to make me laugh, and I posted it with the intention of making you (the readers) laugh. I may be overly-simplistic (I laugh easily and often), but butt plug ornaments and nipple clamp chain garlands on a christmas tree is funny.

      I’m sorry that it offended you and/or hurt your feelings. It wasn’t intended as you received it, but I apologize for the offense all the same. :)

      • Following an accidental humour infusion, it appears that I now have some regret towards the funless, killjoying, humbuggering mess of un-fun that I unfairly deposited on your Christmas doorstep.

        Often (or ‘oftentimes’ as I believe you Americans say) I take things too seriously, and in this case I looked beyond the intended message for some deeper, reflected idea of, like, people who like dominant women, or … something.

        Anyway. What a bollocks. Your friend made a photo of a mini Christmas tree with huge dangling blue balls and a locked plastic sheath over the tip like a Minuteman missile locked under and unsympathising silo housing. That’s actually quite funny … if you have a sense of humour.

        Anyway, happy new year! I shall now return to grrrumbling in the background.

        P.S. The way he got one ball hanging at a different angle to the together demonstrated laudable attention to detail.

          It might have been a little unfair, but I get it. I absolutely understand where your interpretation is coming from (I think) because our culture generally devalues and mistreats male submissives. It’s awful, and I can’t imagine how hurtful it is, but for those reasons, I get it. :)

          I know, right? :)

          Happy new year to you, Scrooge. Here’s hoping for far fewer reasons to grumble in 2015. :)

  4. That is a tree with mad style! I think his execution was definitely excellent. :D
