Why I don't care much for the phrase "good girl".
I think it's the norm when your sub/pet/slave is being well behaved and obedient to use the phrase "good girl".. I'm not writing this you drag the phrase, in fact I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE feeling like a good girl. Let me start off with a little insight to my work day so you can see where I'm coming from. Anyone who knows me, and knows me well, it's aware that I'm a bit of a workaholic. I thrive in my workplace. I truly believe that I will not only succeed but I would excel in anything I put my mind to do. Tonight was no different. I'm a cook ( though I'm really an artist at heart) and today we got rocked I can hardly feel my feet. I didn't have time to eat. And apparently I'm rhyming. I'm the smallest person in the kitchen and the only female. (Off topic but I'm bragging) anyways after 4 straight hours of getting f-ed in the hiney with only myself and my manger in the building he pulled me to the side and told me how impressed he was with my work. He thought I was surely going to break but that I had surprised him. THAT to me felt like I had been pet on the head and told I was the best girl ever. It felt like a flipping high and I was giddy the rest of the shift. (I hid it well but I wanted to jump up and down like a school girl, maybe clap my hands and do a little dance) I earned that praise. I worked my behind off for it. It meant something.
Ok with that being said here's why I don't feel that way towards the phrase "good girl". I have recieved too many messages in the past where Doms would say it without meaning? For example, someone would ask me for my favorite color and after answering they would say "good girl"... Why am I a good girl? For telling you my favorite color or because my favorite color is yellow? Is it possible you also liked the color yellow and that made you believe that I am a good girl? You hardly know me. What if I like the color yellow because it reminds me that one time I saw a yellow school bus run over a little old lady and her new born kitten on their way to donate blood to an orphanage? I could be a sick human being. I did nothing to earn that phrase. And I feel like many Doms know it's a weakness for subs so they look for any little excuse to use it. That's like knowing I get sexy when you touch my leg and so you touch my leg every chance you get. It starts to lose its appeal, frankly. I'm not bashing the phrase at all but it would mean SO much more if it was used at the appropriate (or inappropriate times) and if it was truly earned in my opinion.
