Terms like Domme and Submissive Require Context
You may be a parent but not everyone is your child.
You may be the president of a company but not everyone in the world is your employee.
When seeking to establish dialogue with strangers about D/s, ( – LFA, FLR, S&M – ) focus on the essentials. How dominance and submission fit into your romantic life.
And your general humanness and personality.
Leave secondary issues like titles and extremely minor matters like capitalization protocol until a meaningful conversation is established.
You are a dominant or submissive person only in relationship to specific people. Not to the human race at large. Don’t think in terms of honorifics and power exchange etiquette until there is a real connection between you and the person you are talking to.
Focus on being one person communicating with another.
