I am a late 30s queen-sized bisexual polyamorous submissive black woman. I thought my life was just about as good as it got, but then Daddy became a part of it.
Daddy found the lost little girl who was hiding inside of me and brought her out to play. This blog is (mostly) devoted to our relationship, though aspects of my day-to-day life sometimes squeak through. Very few, if any, pics will be mine, but some of the writing may be.

ANOTHER CASE OF A MISIDENTIFIED PHOTOGRAPH ON THE INTERNET
The rise of social media and popular sites like pinterest where you can blindly pin anything without a source has led to thousands of photographs being mislabeled, put in the wrong era or even mislabeled with the wrong ethnicity of the person in the photograph.
Take this photo: labeled as “Indian Princess”, “Native American Princess”, “Tribal Princess”, and the list goes on.
This woman is NOT Native American, she is in fact Filipina, the correct label should be
A Filipina Mestiza woman in 1875″.
Filipino mestizo is a term used in the Philippines to describe people of mixed Filipino and any foreign ancestry.
The Spanish expedition in 1565, prompted a period of Spanish colonization over the Philippines which lasted for 333 years.
Moral of this story is lets learn and teach correct history, and if your not sure of a pic, put it in Google image search and see what you find for the original source!
Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa in Rome: September 2015
That is a beautiful ass couple
The way he looks at her makes me melt. I want my own of what they have
But he doesn’t look at her at all in these pictures?
I had to go back and look at these pictures to realize that no, he wasn’t looking at her. However, they’re always angled toward each other, and he gives the impression of always being very aware of where she is and what she’s doing. He also seems to be aware of where the paparazzi is.
I mean not to tell ya’ll how to live, but why would an owner go on tv and state they are racist. Additionally why would the post chastise black people for not reading, for something that aired on a tv show?
He didn’t. Neither did Liz Claiborne. Neither did Donna Karan.
I’m having an interesting discussion about whether or not it’s even possible for hierarchal poly relationships to fit into the category of ETHICAL non-monogamy. I’m curious to hear what you think…
I think that it can if that is the way that the relationship is structured, where one relationship is more important than the others. I do, however, thinks that it artificially limits the relationships because you can’t go into it with a fully open heart. But then, perhaps that’s the way they want it, and they feel safer that way.
Some people use hierarchical labels for what are actually lateral relationships but with different capacities…. so their “Primary” partner is the one they live with, and the “secondary” partner is someone they love just as much (laterally), but can’t or don’t live with and can’t or don’t spend as much physical time with. They may consider their tertiary relationship the person that they only get to spend physical time with when they’re in the same city. The emotion and importance may be lateral, but the physical time may be limited.
I’ve started referring to them as “satellite” relationships rather than primary/secondary/tertiary.
Now, if was my poly bed, my mate’s other partner would be at the top, and I would sleep at the bottom as the 24/7 submissive.
Back in January, it came to my attention that Madonna’s social media team had been using a series of 3 of images in a campaign on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with her head superimposed on my paintings to promote her new album “Rebel Heart". I’m pretty easy going, and never wanted to make a big stink about things; all I wanted was for this to be fair and civil— everyone in my circle felt I should “sue! Sue her!“, etc” but I didn’t want to make a big stink about things, just because it was a high profile name. But despite my messages / emails to Liz Rosenburg (her agent) commenting on the said social media posts, and the MANY posts of people defending the work / calling her out on it, the messages were overlooked and ignored, and the work was never credited. I’m used to getting the BS line of “we love your work, but unfortunately we don’t have a budget to pay you, but it will be great exposure for you and will get you lots of work as a result!” And while yes, it is flattering to see a world icon use my work, she also has a net worth of close to $800 million, so budget definitely isn’t an issue, and I can honestly say, considering who it is we’re taking about, I would have been MORE than happy to just be credited, and have the exposure a high profile name like Madonna would have provided. I mean, in doing the math, off of Instagram, the images got a collected 145,000 + likes, on Facebook, some 77,000+ likes, and Twitter, about 1,000+reposts. That’s some serious exposure that was leeched from me and my art, and used to promote her agenda. I got caught up with some work, and kind of forgot about the whole thing a few weeks later, and just wrote it off as a ‘’so this one time Madonna used my artwork” experience, y’know, one of those.
NOW (since the Rebel Heart tour kicked off)… I found out the art is being used on her “Rebel Heart” tour from a friend who recognized the work during the show. I’ve seen at least 4 youtube videos that show it, as it’s part of a loop played during her song “Rebel Heart”. Granted it’s a SMALL part of the show, but I was never A.) asked, and B.) COMPLETELY ignored when I called her staff / team out on improper use of my creative property.
I think what I’m upset about through all this is, the whole experience only perpetuates the frustration we artists have of getting ripped off, and taken advantage of. I worked hard to make those paintings, well over 100+ hours put into making them and well, if Madonna can just take them and use them for shameless self promotion, she has no right getting upset / suing people who use her work without asking. You might be Madonna, but BITCH, I’M MAD ON A few different levels. You stole my material, girl.
Tumblr community, can you please share this, and pass it around, in an attempt to highlight her hypocrisy, and speak out for the MANY artists who are taken advantage of, be it knowingly, or unknowingly. Thank you so much!

I can’t promise anything, but my husband is a lawyer, i’m asking him to look into it.
Although this is very inspiring, Lupita Nyong'o is not black.
You do realize that “Black” doesn’t just refer to Americans of African descent, right? Because Lupita has spoken at length about how important it was to see Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah in film because they looked like her. She specifically cites the Color Purple as a big inspiration for her being an actress. Like, please stop talking.
@imagiftedwriter black is a race. Lupita is black. Specifically, African. Even more specifically, Kenyan.
African, African American, Afro-Latinx, Afro-Caribbean are all ethnicities that fall under the “black” race.
the perfect irony would be if that person isn’t even black telling us who is black
Now, the first words out of your mouth are the most important. You may want to start with something like this.
Look at these charming BrOTP motherfuckers.
My kingdom for Guinan and Riker seducing the galaxy for great justice fic.
But for real, they was fuckin tho
why do ppl always call a white guy and a black woman with obvious UST flirting like crazy “brotp” meanwhile two white guys look at each other once and ppl lose their minds writing porn epics in the tags lol
STUFF 4 pounds beef short ribs 3 cups Zinfandel ½ cup sugar
¾ cup canned diced tomatoes 2 cups beef broth 1 teaspoon garlic, minced 3 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves only 2 bay leaves 6 teaspoons canola oil 1 large onion, diced 2 carrots, diced 2 stalks celery, diced 2 ounces dried mushrooms, preferably porcini
STEPS Season the short ribs with salt and pepper; be rather generous.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the Zinfandel, sugar, tomatoes, beef broth, garlic, thyme, bay leaves, and a pinch of salt.
Pour the canola oil into a heavy pot or Dutch oven (at least 5 quarts) and place over high heat. When the oil is hot, working in small batches, brown the meat.
Turn each piece to brown on all sides before removing from the pot.
When all the beef is browned and removed from the pot, add the onion, carrots, and celery, allowing the onion to cook until browned, about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
Return the beef to the pot along with the wine mixture. Allow the wine mixture to come to a boil before reducing heat, skimming fat from the surface.
After simmering for several minutes, add the mushrooms. Cover and simmer over very low heat until meat is fork tender and nearly falling off the bone, 1 ½ to 2 hours.
Once the beef has cooked, remove from the pot and keep warm. Turn up the heat and reduce the pot liquid until thickened, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer the ribs to four shallow bowls, spooning the liquid over the top.
NOTE Ribs cut flanken style (across the bone) are easier to deal with than those cut English style (parallel to the bone), but are slightly more fatty.
I’m reposting this story in it’s entirety because the situation is getting dire and no one’s helping.

[Bottom] People bring water from their taps to show city officials at city meeting, Jan. 21
I made a post earlier about my city of Flint, Michigan’s water situation and I wanted to share this because our drinking water is literally making people and pets ill. I don’t want people to ignore this, I NEED people to know what’s going on here.
LeeAnne Walters, 36, of Flint shows water samples from her home to Flint emergency manager Jerry Ambrose on Wednesday after city and state officials spoke during a forum that addressed growing health concerns about the drinking water.
In a city where residents have felt under siege for years — from crime, bad press and an emergency manager some feel forced upon them — the newest threat pours from kitchen spigots and showerheads.
It’s the reason behind mysterious rashes on local children, parents say. Unexplained illnesses. Even sick pets.
Bethany Hazard said it’s the reason for the brown rust circles that began appearing just months ago around her drains and the oily film in her bathwater in her longtime east-side home.
On the west side of Flint, Corodon Maynard said it’s the reason he was bent retching violently over the toilet this month — just hours after chugging two glasses of water at bedtime.
“I was throwing up like bleach water. It came up through my nose burning,” said the 20-year-old.
The water from the city system is so corrosive, according to General Motors officials, that the automaker’s Flint Engine Operations pulled off the city water system, connecting instead into a water system operated by nearby Flint Township.
Adam Mays, an artist and Flint resident, protests the condition of the Flint water system at Fifth and Saginaw in Downtown Flint, Michigan, with a few handfuls of other protestors, Tuesday afternoon, January 13, 2015.
So what’s in Flint’s water and just how dangerous is it?
It depends on who you ask and what tests you’re referring to.
State tests suggest the water is clear of coliform bacteria, which can suggest the presence of other disease-carrying pathogens.
But as a result of treating the water to kill any dangerous microorganisms, the water now carries low levels of Total Trihalomethane, or TTHM, a by-product of the disinfectants. Years of exposure may cause liver, kidney or central nervous system problems and an increased risk of cancer, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The city maintains the water — pulled from the Flint River rather than the Detroit water system that had served the city for years —is safe.
Mayor Dayne Walling who was born and raised in Flint, said he drinks it.
The river, long known for the toxins left from Flint’s industrial years, is cleaner than it has been in years, “but that perception persists,” Walling said.
Flint resident Gladyes Williamson-Bunnell asks officials addressing issues with the water quality if they would drink some of the Flint water she held up in a gallon jug during the water meeting on Wednesday evening, Jan. 21, 2015, at the Flint City Hall dome in downtown Flint.
“I’ve taken to calling it ‘poop water,’ ” said Nayyirah Shariff, a community activist for the grassroots group Democracy Defense League.
Many said they are ready to abandon longtime homes.
“What we have is a full-blown crisis,” said GM retiree Claire McClinton who had bundled up against the snow earlier this week to run into El Potrero Mexican restaurant for a late lunch.
But she reconsidered at the last minute and walked out instead, worried about eating at restaurants that rely on city water in their kitchens.
She’s not the only customer who is concerned.
Business overall has been hit “probably 20 to 30%,” said manager Jorge Alcazar.
The restaurant’s lifeblood is in customers seeking a quick, affordable lunch, often with a glass of ice water.
Unwilling to drink the tap water, customers also don’t want to pay $2 or more for a pop or buy a bottled water.
Worse for waitress Ashley Trujillo, customers have argued with staff. One customer left three pennies as a tip after fuming about having to pay for water. Others have left nothing.
“Like we have something to do with it,” Trujillo said.
All of this — the frustration, the slump in El Potrero’s business, the jam-packed meetings with residents toting jugs of brown water and claims they are being poisoned — are the latest blows to a city that has felt swatted around for too long.
“People think all the crime happens in Flint and everyone is poor in Flint, so there’s this stigma. Now we’re fighting against dirty water. Really?” said radiology coder Cindy Marshall, who joined about two dozen protesters earlier this week.
“Are you trying to kill us?” read one sign. “No more poison,” read another.
McClinton echoed Marshall’s sentiments: “We’ve lost confidence in the city.”
A protestor holds a sign out for cars to see during the protest of the conditions of the Flint water system at Fifth and Saginaw in Downtown Flint, Michigan, Tuesday afternoon, January 13, 2015.
For years, residents in this city bleeding jobs and soaked in red ink have been facing growing water bills. Some have climbed as high as several hundred dollars a month.
“We have residents choosing between water and groceries and other bills,” said Hazard, whose own bill is about $100 a month for a single person.
“I feel like I’m going under,” said Hazard, who survived cancer twice and who was forced into early retirement and limited income.
The city eventually decided to dump the Detroit system in favor of the Karegnondi Water Authority, which is building a system to supply Genesee County with water pulled from Lake Huron. In the long run, this will mean lower water costs, officials have said.
Under the plan, Flint is temporarily pulling water from the Flint River until the water authority’s system comes online, expected in 2016.
In August and September, however, the city issued three advisories to boil the water after detecting coliform bacteria.
Just before Christmas, residents received notices that state tests indicated higher-than-acceptable levels of trihalomethane, the disinfectant by-product.
Hazard’s cats have been sick. So has she and several neighbors. Even her houseplant began to die.
Maynard threw up. Residents complained of rashes and mysterious illnesses.
“We just want safe water. How hard is that?” Hazard asked.
But assurances come with qualifiers.
The chlorine did its job and cleaned the water of microbial pathogens that can cause disease within days. That means the water is safe for healthy people to drink for a short time, said Michael Prysby, a district engineer in the state’s Office of Drinking Water and Municipal Assistance.
But the trade-off was TTMH — possibly a danger for the very young, the very old, or the very sick if they ingest it long-term, he added.
People with prolonged exposure to TTMH may experience problems with their liver, kidneys or central nervous system and have an increased risk of getting cancer.
“But we’re talking decades,” he said, adding that those who are worried should talk to their doctors.
“We don’t want to make a blanket statement to say water is safe or unsafe. It’s misleading both ways.”
That’s the kind of answer that infuriates Marshall, the protester and mother of a 5-year-old.
“They said it’s safe, but it’s brown water,” said Marshall, also a radiology coder, after the meeting. “Why do we have to drink brown water? No one else has to drink brown water.”
So, it's been about 9 months and the water has not gotten any better. As a matter of fact, it’s worse now. Here’s a picture taken just a few hours ago.
From the Facebook post associated with this picture “This fire hydrant in Flint, Michigan has been “flushing” for over 5-hours… after 5-hours, that’s not flushing… that is the water quality in Flint. ”
Fire hydrants carry CLEAN, TREATED water. This is our “clean and treated water”. This is the water that we have to drink.
And that’s not all. Water tests have been conducted in the last few days and in every district they checked, the amount of sites with over 15ppb of lead in the water has either gone up or stayed the same. You can see the results here at http://flintwaterstudy.org
Update for September 24th, 2015
Flint mayor Dayne Walling is letting his people be poisoned and is continuing to deny it.
The lead content in Flint children’s blood has spiked in the past year.
In perhaps the most dramatic proof yet of the toxic impact of Flint’s decision to draw municipal water from the Flint River, a new study released today shows that the amount of lead found in the bloodstream of Flint children increased dramatically following the switch from the Detroit water system in 2014.
The results — which are based on blood samples drawn from 1,746 children ages 5 and younger — were even more frightening in Flint neighborhoods where Virginia Tech researchers testing water from nearly 300 homes found the highest levels of lead in the city’s water. Analysis of blood samples from children living in those same high-risk areas showed that the number of kids with elevated levels of lead in their blood jumped from 2.5 percent to 6.3 percent.
The following statement was released by Congressman Dan Kildee earlier today:
“This new study showing elevated blood lead levels among Flint’s children is very troubling. People have the right to have confidence that their drinking water is safe.
Immediate action needs to be taken by the State of Michigan to ensure that relief is provided to people who are concerned about lead levels in their water. Today as part of my ongoing efforts, I talked with the EPA Region 5 Administrator about the State of Michigan providing emergency assistance, including lead-clearing filters and bottled water, until a more permanent solution can be determined.
This new study by the medical community also raises additional doubts about prior water testing done by the DEQ and EPA that stated the water was in compliance with federal law. I have been completely unsatisfied with their answers to my questions regarding their testing methodology, which is why I have called for additional immediate independent and scientific testing to be done.”
Good Morning, I wanted to share this with you and your followers. I create art that explores body positivity.

I appreciate and value your time please let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions.
McDole sits at a unique intersection often ignored in the conversation on police brutality: violence against people who are potentially suffering through a mental illness and those who are a living with a physical disability. He also is one on a growing list of people who the police were originally called out to help, but instead were killed (like James Anderson several days later). These victims of state violence are often the most convenient to label as worthy of lethal force, as many do in fact have a weapon. However, even when police are aware of the potential mental state of these citizens, they do nothing to adjust their approach/tactics. In essence, people like McDole are doubly pathologized, not just for being black but for also being sick. More must be done to uplift the stories of Tanisha Anderson, Janisha Fonville, Lavall Hall, James Anderson, and countless others who have been stolen from us. Rest in Power. We fight for you now too. #staywoke #farfromover
This is so sad. Women are already discouraged from pursuing science. Treating us like criminals for experimenting isn’t helping.
this is about criminalization of black girls. this is the convergence of anti-blackness and misogyny and the prison industrial complex’s investment in imprisoning black children (the pre-k to prison pipeline). and to reduce this as an attempt to stop “women” from pursuing science isn’t responsible or accurate to the structural reasons why this happened… because all girl’s (not women. she is 16. not an adult she is a black GIRL) actions, inquiry, behaviors in schools don’t result in them being arrested. certain bodies are coded as inherently criminal and threatening. we can have a conversation about ahmed mohamed and the intersections of islamophobia, anti-blackness and xenophobia and also have a conversation about the criminalization of black girls without irresponsibly reducing and over simplifying issues like this.
I saw someone post something on facebook(aka the devils playground) saying that black women “back then” were softer, never showed any skin, and never brought up sexuality so they were more deserving of respect. They were comparing women like Rihanna, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, and others to women of earlier days wearing long skirts and shy smiles. There were a lot of women who wore long skirts, but there were women who showed skin then too. There were burlesque dancers, sex workers, and women who posed nude in photographs and they deserve visibility and respect.
A while back, I was looking for a means to establish compatibility with partners I was meeting in the scene. I wanted something that I could fill out with another person, that would assess our likelihood of being good partners, and which areas we were closely matched in interest.
I took this idea to forgottenfool, a Dominant partner of mine at the time, and gave him a list of what I wanted included. He, being much better at Excel than I, formulated a program that was simple, yet effective in working out kink-compatiability between two partners.
The first photo is of some of my answers to the program. The second photo is a section of the results between forgottenfool and I. We run at about a 76% compatibility. The program, without any further listed kinks and with all kinks answered, takes off 0.10% off this compatibility rating for each deviation from each other’s answers. Questions not answered are not counted towards this number.
This makes sense, even though we tend to be good partners–he has a much higher interest in rope and bondage than I do, and I have a higher interest in things like certain kinds of roleplay or blood-play. This program, however, lets us examine the areas where we match (or don’t!) and discuss our thoughts on these subjects.
I have found this program to be very useful, and I use it with every partner I consider serious relationships with, and many others if we’re going to be playing casually. It’s faster than undirected communication, and I have decided to share it with you all to download and use with your partners.
