What are your political views?

Post by undergroundgravity » Sat Mar 06, 2021 6:01 am

Hey! I'm new here (not to DD) but I'm curious. What are your political views? I know domestic discipline is stereotyped as being Christian and conservative but that's definitely not always the case.

Personally I lean more liberal (so does my husband) but I don't like to label myself quite like that. Because I don't agree totally with any politician or party and I'm very independent when I vote.

Jesus, if only I knew :-). But no seriously, I can be probably called as somewhat libertarian, I believe in personal and economical freedoms equally. On the other hand, both right and left are sometimes importent for applying some regulations to various institutions.

I do not belong to any political party. I go with whoever is doing the right thing.

Both HoH and I are progressives living in conservative states. Although we're both Christians this is NOT a CDD relationship as neither one of us likes to use religion as a weapon. When we first met I asked about the former guy in the WH and his response was "I despise the motherfucker"

I would say that there is a common, perhaps predominant, Christian variety of DD, but I also think there are many variations out there. My wife and I are Jewish, and we practice cooperative DD, and I know that is definitely not that common.

The opponents of DD range from prudish right-wing conservatives who equate it with deviant sex, to radical feminists who seem to think that it's all abusive and that women are incapable of consenting to such an arrangement even if they genuinely choose to do so.

My view on the matter is that each couple needs to work this out for themselves without the interference or judgment of people with a political agenda. We do not support abusive relationships. We believe in keeping it loving and consensual. Talk to the folks here to get a sense of what it is really like, especially those who's situation is similar to yours, and ignore the pervasive nonsense out there in the media.

My HoH and I both tend towards left wing positions. I do somewhat more strongly, though I try hard to think more critically about things and not just believe everything that people in my social circles are saying. I think capitalism is a great invention but needs to be regulated some to protect us from monopolies and from short-sighted thinking (which can distroy the environment etc).

HoH and I are also not religious.

I think DD is great for any consenting couple who finds it helps them and shouldn't be reserved for any one political or religious direction.
I did notice back when I was on the dating market that the kind of guys I tended to date (left leaning intellectuals) were often horrified by DD when I explained that that was something I was looking for in a relationship. I do wonder if the degree of horror would have been less if I was in some more traditional community. But I am a feminist and I care about my career, so I needed a HoH who would want that for me too.

In our house I am particularly more of a liberal lean towards the left wings although I do try to keep myself centered and focused on how regulations are being applied and what's being done for the people of our country and also of the world on a more global scale, it's also valid to say that I am not religious at all.

On the other hand, my husband definitely lean to conservative views and has very strong political opinions from that point of view, we both absolutely agree that the former guy was a tumor to the country but that doesn't make my husband less conservative, we live in a conservative state and he also works for the government so there's that.

In regards to DD I see how his political views influence it but that's more of small part of all the things that showed him as a person in life than a major guide to it. For me personally that doesn't really play a very big role in the way we live and I believe that's a good thing.

I am left wing, but not american. I’m from Scandinavia and firmly believe in the social structure we have. All though, Scandinavian countries aren’t socialist as many seem to believe. We have high degree of capitalism, but mixed in welfare states.

The former president of the United States was as Alice rightfully put it, a tumour.

My husband is however not from Scandinavia and a lot more conservative in his religion and way of life than I am, but luckily we are relatively on the same page as me when it comes to politics.

I think this could be a refreshing topic for the site – if we handle it right… Some of us, me included, may think that there is some sort of political and/or religious “norm” for participants in this forum.

So, I hereby declare, as a European – and not living in an American context, that I am:
* a devout Christian who would never, ever use religious or biblical arguments for my choice of the DD-life style.
* a lifestyle liberal and
* a political conservative (that some, I suspect, would call “a leftwing liberal” in the present American political landscape…)

My husband is more libertarian, though with a conservative bend that has increased with age. I’m a stereotypical conservative.

We are both Christians and believe that male headship in the household is biblically based, but also that DD specifically is not in any way a command or requirement.
