Every boy who has reconciled his submissive nature with the societal pressures of masculine independence deserves to be proud of himself.

It takes more balls to abdicate those conventions and submit to the right guy than it does to homogenize and gentrify your sexual and emotional needs.

That pride can and must be fostered by a Dom, Big Brother, or Sir with a firm hand, a sharp mind, and a good heart.

In response to too many phone calls I've received recently from boys in distress, I've drafted the following bill of boys' rights. If you're in support of securing and fostering a boy's development and pride in his submission, make yourself heard.

The boys' Bill of Rights:

1. Every boy has the right to have his body, intellect, and emotions protected by his Dom.

2. Every boy has the right to choose the man whom he serves and to discontinue that service and take his leave without being subjected to physical, mental, or emotional abuse.

3. Every boy has the right to be cared for, disciplined appropriately, and allowed to feel pride in his submission.

4. Every boy has the right to protected sex if he so wishes.

5. Every boy has the right to privacy if he so wishes. No boy can be blackmailed, publicly humiliated, or physically coerced into service without his expressed desire to be so.

6. Every boy has the right to defend himself from physical, sexual, and emotional abuse.

7. Every boy has the right to consent or not to consent to sexual activities.

8. Every boy has the right to seek refuge, counsel, and advice from other subs and Doms without the expectation of sex, money, or any other service in return.

9. Every boy has the right to a physically and emotionally available circle of friends.

10. Every boy has the right to protect his own possessions and finances against intercession, theft, and non-consensual acquisition.

SIRS: Refer to this profile or copy and paste this Bill of Rights into your own if you wish to let subs know how you feel about their rights.

subs, boys, and pups: Refer to this profile or include the Bill in your own and take a stand against boys and abuse.

I totally get how you and other non-bio-male and/or male-id'd friends of mine are boy-id'd in kink/Ds. Being a "girl" vs being a "boy" in D/s is so different! I was trying to innumerate the difference to my play partner who used to be my girl but is exploring being a boy too and I was trying to explain how, as a Top and a Sir, I ascribe different tasks and protocols to the two roles and why, and it was a really fascinating conversation to have. I think that this list is really basic...one would be surprised how many Tops have broken more than one of these rules with me...I wish I had had this list at those times, it might have empowered me to leave/speak up when those things happened. What are you and you Daddy doing over Christmas break?
