How to Get Kicked out of an Organization

 

The kinkfetish community is made up of smaller communities.  Some of these are local, and some are virtual.  They are all where you go to learn, get support, engage with like-minded others and BE part of the community.   One would think that you join the community to BE a part of it.  But we all know the people who seem to be doing whatever they can to get themselves kicked out.

 

How do you get kicked out?  Here are some tried and true steps to follow.  If you don’t get yourself kicked out after following these, you will at least have made yourself very unpopular.

 

1. Posturing. 

This is adopting an attitude that you are somehow better than  the people who have come before you.   Make fun of the mentors and disrespect the published authors.  Talk about them behind their backs as being outdated.  Declare loudly that sacred cows are there to milk and you would be lacking integrity if you did not point out the flaws of your betters so that other people can benefit from your courage to address the real issues.

 

2. Posing.

Become a poseur.   Find someone to imitate to ride on their coattails.  Adopt the mannerisms of your posee.  If they write in a forum, then you write in that forum.  If they befriend person A, then you befriend Person A.   If they have a cartoon avatar in victorian dress wearing a top hat, do the same.  Adopt a sagelike attitude and quote from their books or materials and pretend you thought it up yourself.  You don’t need anything original, because its just imitation and imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, right?   Become incensed and outraged when people point out your copying as creepy.   Threaten to sue if someone calls it stalking.

 

3. Insist your way is the one true way.

You’re the one true x, a trew sub, a trew dominante, whatever.  Everyone else is wrong and sadly misguided.  The organization is wrong and the people running it are wrong and dooming it to failure.  Question everything and demand change.  Of course the organization was on its deathbed till you became a member, and now that you’re there, you’re going to rescue it.  Surely everyone will see that when you are in charge, and they will wish you had run things from the beginning too.   Until they do, be outraged at anyone else’s work if it doesn’t fit your idea of trew.

 

4. Re-write history.

You showed  up, say, in 2006, and were so noob that you didn’t know tab A from slot B.  A lot of people helped you, guided you, taught you.  At some point, erase your personal history of learning and who you learned from.  Re-invent it so that you sprang out of the ground as an expert.  Puff out your chest and practice blustering along these lines: Why, he never taught me anything!  I was never around them long enough to learn that!   We were only casually acquainted!   Huff with indignation and stomp out of the room to underline your point.

 

5.  Macerate on Mutiny.

A plan to take over needs help, and you can’t do it on your own.  You need minions.  Get in the habit greeting everyone who comes in the room and talking with them privately.  Especially new people, who you can help see how misunderstood you are in the organization.   Drop carefully worded hints on how the organization’s leader is not fit for the position, but you hope things will change..eventually.  Shake your head slowly in dismay and sigh with resignation. Grow your circle slowly and carefully and dream of election day when you will be the leader you were meant to be.  Understand that minions get lazy and will need constant maintenance to keep coming back and doing what you want them to. 

6. Squeak

They say that the squeaky wheel gets the grease.  So squeak often and squeak loudly.  Complain about the bathrooms, the play rooms, the bylaws.  Point out the peeling paint as a health hazard and really, they should be doing something about it if they cared the way you did.  It should be evident to an idiot that no one cares except you anyway.

 

7. Keep the stir stick going.

Keeping the pot stirred up distracts people from what you’re really doing, so invest in a good set of gossip and keep it well maintained.  Gossip is always a good investment, and gossip you initiate today, will pay dividents tomorrow.   The more creative you make your gossip, the more interested you can keep your shareholders.  If ever you are confronted about creating rumor, deny everything and be astonished that anyone could ever think that about you.

 

8.  Take one from the team.

Teams are for people who aren’t strong enough on their own.  You know you’re stronger than any team and being on a team would just serve to weaken you.   Committees are for others who can’t make decisions.  You don’t need to be on a committee,  and teams are for woosies.  If you are offered to serve on a committee, offer to do the work yourself because you work better alone.  Don’t actually do the work unless it benefits your grand plan.

 

9.  Use it if it fits the plan.

Your big ideas are destiny, and are just simply meant to be.  When you rescue your organization from its death throes, then everyone will thank you, carrying you out on their shoulders in jubilation.  So it doesn’t really matter if you bend a few things to fit your plan, as the end justifies the means.  Use whatever you can to accomplish your plot for organization domination, whether it is people, funds, or politics.  Everyone will thank you for it later.

10.  Deal in drama.

Make everything about you.
