Blame it on my personality, my mental health, or my INTJ personality (or a combination of it all) but I have a drama intolerance.
I. Don't. Do. Drama. Never have.
Part of it is the triggering effect (and I mean that as seriously as that term can be taken) that confrontation has on my mental state. Part of it, though, is that I have zero time or patience for it.
So when curious kinksters ask how to deal with the drama they find in their local BDSM community - the kind so bad they don't want to engage with other kinky people, I'm not always sure how to answer them.
"Avoid all those motherfuckers" doesn't seem like great advice - or at least not healthy or realistic. Since my go-to option doesn't seem helpful, I actually gave it a bit of thought - with the help of John Brownstone who always handles these things better than I do. From that, we have a show...
I don't think we have all the answers. In fact, I think there are so many perspectives to what "drama" means and how to best handle it or combat it, that the possibilities are likely endless. But, we offered some options, a little tough love, and as much compassion and empathy as we could.
