More Liz Phair

Yes, I admit it, this is one CD I enjoy an awful lot, lol. Who could resist a song dedicated to wonderful, magical, Hot White Cum???????

Anyway, the other day as I was driving home with the car stereo blaring Liz, I heard the song "Bionic Eyes". I really get a kick out of that song, it certainly turns the tables on how women are treated by men (in the most general of terms).

One of the best lines of the song is: "Show me a man you cannot break and I will show you heaven." And that is so true. Heaven is knowing that you have a man that you can't break, even when you're at your worst. Sheryl Crow sings a song which asks "Are you strong enough to be my man?" Same thing as Liz is singing about.

Shoot, if I was a doormat, a passive person, or simple-minded and dim-witted what challenge would that be for a man? If I was easy to handle, easy to dominate, and submissive to everyone I meet, how would that bring honor to the man who I submit to?

The honor in Mastering me is that it isn't easy, not for the weak of heart, and not something the average schmoe could do. And perhaps that's why I have to see if I have a man I cannot break - it's a way of finding heaven. Perhaps I need to know I have a man who is able to handle me, even when I'm at my worst. A man who can't be broken, a man who is strong enough to be my man.

Not that I ever mean to test Him, I think sometimes it's just an instictive thing, a need to have that reassurance that He is the rock. And that no amount of storm, even hurricane force winds, can shake Him.

It can all be very complex, this whole relationship thing. Much harder than songs make it seem.



  1. I'm totally stealing 'Strong Enough' to post on my own blog!!

    You say "If I was easy to handle, easy to dominate, and submissive to everyone I meet, how would that bring honor to the man who I submit to?". That is an excellent, crucial point, and very well put. My lover and I work the same way. He requires that I be gracious and polite with anyone who desrves that courtesy, and some who do not, but I submit to no man but him. And then only because he deserves my obedience and submission. He wouldn't have it otherwise.

    Nice post, Tapestry.


  2. Thank you!
    I'm glad something I shared touched a chord with you.
    It's wonderful how we stimulate ideas within one another.

  3. I appreciate your comment for the value it has. As far as tying me up and beating LOL there is a safe word we use for times when I am unable to handle it emotionally, because let's face it, there are times when you just cannot handle the pain and submission being thrust on you for whatever reason. Sometimes it's from the pressures of parenting or work, or you're sick or in physical pain (I had an issue with sciatica for almost 2 years which has started to disappear).

    You gave me the push I needed to get back into blogging after being in a funk. Thank you.

  4. aww yes HWC its totally my bf's favorite song at the time (at least when I sing it)
