Ooops

A woman posted a comment on the previous blog post. In that comment was a link to another site. It was this site: herproperty2008.blogspot.com

Of course, me in my hastiness, I read the anonymous comment, saw the link, and for whatever reason assumed this was some type of advertisement and not a legit site.  I didn't link to the site but deleted the comment and wrote a response to whomever wrote it.  Unfortunately for me, the comment-er was real - and not some person pushing a product or having an agenda - and expressed disappointment in my actions.  I promised I'd post the link back up for others to go to and explore as she felt the content of this writer was worthy of reading.

Ma'am, again, I do apologize for my actions. I never meant to offend and do hope that you understand. Furthermore, I hope that readers might find this resource of value and take the time to read a few posts to see for themselves.

I'm Hers

PS. To those of you that post as Anonymous, it really is helpful if you sign off with some type of screen-name.  For example RR is one such anonymous poster.  Yet every time he posts he signs off with 'RR'.  I've gotten to know RR and respect what he says.  It is nice for me and I'm sure others to know that it is RR that is posting the comment he has.  I have no idea if RR stands for Rick Royston or Ray Rochester or even if his name might be Pete Fountain in real life.  All I know is that when I see RR, I smile, knowing it's my dear friend RR taking the time once more to add to the blog discussion.

  1. IH, really now, how could anyone be angry at you.
    To be serious though, it is things like this that cause people to become loyal followers of your blog. You could easily delete whatever you felt and no one would know the difference, but you were up front on this and admitted that you may have done it differently, had you known the other factors. While I do not subscribe to every view you post (most of them though), I do commend you on how you conduct yourself here. I had read some of the herproperty blog in question after the first listing and also agree with many of his views and enjoyed the reading. I do believe, however, that by reading his very last post and the comments, some definite distinctions can be made between the two of you. Thanks again for your contributions.

    1. RR, the honor is all mine. I have always valued your opinion because you have talked about yourself enough for me to learn enough about you to realize you are a good man - and a man that loves his wife. Maybe someday we will cross paths. Who knows. And if you happen to live in a neighboring town of mine I'm going to be quite upset that we lived so close and yet never were formally introduced. Keep coming by and keep loving that woman of yours. :)

  4. For a Christian man, how can he feel he's being the leader if he chooses to do this? You probably have an article you've written on that already. Thank you very much.

    1. Hello Cathie, Thank you for the comment. Yes I did write a post on this topic. I have included it below for you to read and I would love for you to let me know your thoughts after you read it. My hunch is that you believed as I did - that a woman should submit to a man. Read the post. Then read about the word 'ezer' in the Bible. Then think "how can EVERY use of that word (which is how the Bible refers to the woman in Genesis 2) have a reference point to God coming to help Israel or God coming to help this person, or God coming to help Daniel, or God coming to help..... Meaning.... that the stronger, wiser, more powerful person is coming to the aid of the lesser person or nation.

      It was after reading that verse and commentaries on that verse that got me thinking because it didn't fit with how I was raised. And it was also a statement made before there were civilizations, before men became more powerful than women, before societies were formed etc. It was a statement made by God in reference to how HE viewed women. I found it really interesting.

      Anyway, enough blabbing. Here's the link http://im-hers.blogspot.com/2013/07/did-god-really-command-women-to-submit.html?zx=60d5a03b965e99f6

      Stop by again Cathie

  5. I'm Hers, congratulations on having the guts to admit an error in regard to the ladies invitation to read herproperty2008.blogspot.com . I did follow the link and though the site is wordy, it is well written and well researched and relevant to our discussions on female led relationships. It's really sad that the writer seems to have never discovered a woman who had the courage to lead him, but we all know that there are few women that have not been constrained by the idiocy that is patriarchy. Matriarchal societies used to flourish, living in harmony with the Earth as Goddess until wiped out by men who adhered to religious beliefs that gave dominion over the earth and everything in it to man and created woman to be man's companion.The consequence can been seen all around as we destroy our planet and slaughter one another based solely in different interpretations of religious texts.

    The female is biologically and psychologically stronger than the make, prone to less disease and living longer. Females tend to be more socially aware and more co-operative than men; characteristics that make them more suitable to lead in complex businesses. It's time we looked at reality with an open mind and stopped clinging to ancient beliefs of dubious authenticity. As Einstein said, we cannot solve the problems of today with the thinking that caused those problems.

    We both experience the wisdom and strength of the women we serve and obey; we love them and recognise their courage in stepping outside their upbringing to be our mistress. You and I have both gained a huge amount from allowing their wisdom to guide and lead us and we are better for it. How would it be if every man truly submitted to the wisdom and authority of the women in his life? Would the world be a different, better place? Isn't it time we helped make that happen?

    Both your blog and Femdom101 have been a source of great wisdom that have led us to a happy and rewarding wife led marriage. It is wonderful that your blog is grounded in the everyday reality of a female led relationship. Really look forward to reading each post. Thank you.

  6. My hearts desire,
    I really do appreciate the things that you say when you stop by the comment. You really ought to consider starting your own blog! You write so well and your thoughts are so clearly expressed. I do agree with you and so many aspects of what you say regarding the benefits of a man living under the leadership of woman. It is a beautiful way to live and in no way reduces the masculine traits of a man. A man can still be with his strong protective and caring etc., but living under a woman he can use those traits in the ways that she best sees fit.

    The picture you per tree of world being ruled by women is probably farsighted. I don't mean that in a negative way but rather something that probably will never come to be or at least not come to be in our lifetime.

    Stop by again friend, you're always welcome. Have a great day.

  7. What a stand-up thing to do IH. At the end of the day it was an honest mistake and when we make mistakes, there is always a way to fix it, assuming others allow it to be fixed. There is nothing that gets broken in life that can't be fixed except death.

    Always love your posts and also your guidance, respect and friendship ever since I started my own blog. Reading your thoughts has inspired me on many occasions ..... just like this one.

    Rock on my friend!

  8. @ ImHers:

    I am the dominant woman who posted the link to HerProperty, the now defunct FLR blog and who expressed disappointment when you deleted it. I see now that it might have appeared to be a promotion link.

    Thank you for admitting to having made a mistake - apology accepted. You have proved to be a true gentleman.

    1. Thank you Anonymous Dominant! Sometimes a difference of opinion or 'oops' can bring people together rather than push them apart. I hope that was the case with us :) I gladly accept your forgiveness and hope you continue to comment as you are able. Thanks again for bringing this to my intention. You are a gracious woman.

  9. Way to own up to your mistake, I'm Her's. I really appreciate your post about the matter, as well as the gracious response by Anonymous. Those are examples of integrity and love that we can all follow. Finding those on the blogosphere is like coming across a twenty dollar bill forgotten in my coat pocket or a peanut butter cup tucked away in rhe bottom of the fridge. It's no surprise finding graciousness and love here, but wonderful just the same.

    Please let Katie know that we readers appreciate her permitting you to keep the blog rolling! Her allowing and supporting your efforts have a positive impact on many people.

    Take care,

    Scott

    1. Scott, I will pass the comment along - not that she gives a rip about your opinion LOL (nor that Donna bends to my words either :) Ahh, I had to go there with you on that one. Seriously, I will read your comment to her and I do hope this blog has a positive impact on others. I'm not that smart. Really I'm not. Scored under a 1000 on my SATs way back in the day. But I do enjoy writing.
