I was talking in a BDSM support thread on gaia, when I proposed my idea of doing the video's. I got some good responses, and I got a couple of responses basically telling me that I am too young to be considering doing this. They weren't really all that rude in my opinion. In fact, I daresay they were trying to look out for me, but I will say this, one of them told me that I was going to be wasting my time, and I just really couldn't let that slide by.
I basically told them that just because I was a younger person, it did not mean that I had no clue what I was going to be talking about. I'm pretty certain that out of all of the younger generation out there in the lifestyle, only maybe half of them studied up on BDSM all the lifestyles and dynamics and such like I did. I have known, researched, asked questions to those who were really experienced, since I was 15 years old. This not mean that I know EVERYTHING, because I don't. I just know that I have far more knowledge than those of us "young ones" who just jumped head first into it after reading it up on some stupid wikipedia page.
I was as nice about it as I could be, but I informed them that just because they don't have faith in me not only because of my age, but because "it's been done hundreds of times" doesn't mean that I'm going to let two people that I don't know talk me out of doing something that I am rather passionate about. I do not need anyone's permission, outside of Masters', to make these educational video's.
One of my biggest reasons for making them are to show that just because some of us are really young, does not mean we do not know what we are doing. Some of us are intelligent and actually research shit before we ever actually get into it. Hell, Angel and Panda are another couple I know of that researched and read up before getting into their M/s relationship. So clearly, I'm not the only one.
So doubt me all you want. Tell me I'm wasting my time, but to me even if people do not take me seriously, and ignore me, at least I can say that I tried, and that to me means that I did not waste my time.
