I found another thing that kind of bothers me.... Some people in BDSM relationships will use the O/our, W/we, i, She, He weird capitalization stuff to denote dom- or sub-ness. It drives me nuts!

In my head it's like stuttering because I can't get used to having to leave out one the letters, so it's simultaneously hilarious (because I seemingly have no control over how I read it) and irritating (because once again, I have no control over how I read it).

I is supposed to be capitalized. Period. I think I would find typography choices (using he instead of He or something) easier to get past. It would still denote a difference (dom bold, sub not bold), but it wouldn't create this odd dissonance with normal rules of grammar.

Add these threads to the list of ones that I generally don't read.
