I have a hard time with the term “brat.” I also have a hard time observing “brats.” I’ve written about this issue before (on fetlife), but suffice it to say – “Brat” is a trigger for me.
But I’m not a pushover. I’m not a door mat. And partners in the past have made the mistake of thinking that if I’m not one, I must be the other.
But, not this partner. He gets it.
