Is submission a weak act? Well... It's an act, no doubt about that. I've 'broken' many times, more times than I can count. I've 'submitted,' completely disingenuously, three times. I was forced to it and couldn't figure a reasonable RP way out of it. Still, I beat feet when the first chance presented itself. Twice it was cool, but ones I ran into the old 'you submitted you are mine now' routine, and he hunted me and really, frankly, frightened me to the point I nearly left Gor. Love it or hate it, it attracts some REAL freaks. I guess it depends on how you define it. I've gone though the motions of the process three times, but in my mind I've never done it. I don't feel weak at all.
Now, I've had long conversations trying to convince me to do so for real... but I don't really 'feel' it. But if I ever did, I don't think it would be weak. I have seen, however, at least one girl submit is such a pathetically servile manner that it kind of made me nauseous. That WAS weak. In fact, it was so weak it was almost insulting to the man. He did NOTHING to rate this, and it was clear this was just the first guy she ran into. He was happy though, for the moment. So, I guess it would depend on the situation.
