*NOTE* the following is a post that I found online many years ago (back in 04), I know that many who might well read this will disagree with it in part or for all of it, but I am posting this because I wish to do so and because TO ME some of it holds very much true regardless of your dynamic (but again its how I see it and I know other’s have their views on the matter).
A Submissive’s Bill Of Rights
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT: YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE TREATED WITH RESPECT . Not only do you have this right ~ you have the right to demand it. Being submissive does not make you a doormat or ANY less of a person then anyone else. The word “SUBMISSIVE” describes you nature and in NO way diminishes you as a human being.You have the right to respect yourself as well.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT: to be proud of what you are and not have feelings of shame and reproach. Your submissive nature is a gift and should always be a source of pride and happiness for not only the Dominant but you as well.
