…the "T" in "top" even if it’s not the first word of a sentence? If so, do you also do the "B" in "bottom," the "D" in dominant and / or the "S" in "submissive"? If so, is there a reason or is it just convention? Do you do it in special cases (ie, for a specific person "my Top" or "my Bottom") or is it something you use generally? Does the verb get the capital "Topping" as well as the noun?
I’m asking because I’m curious (duh!) — it’s something I’ve noticed increasing in the last couple years and am wondering where it’s come from.
Also because it always reminds me of my grandmother (she’ll be 101 next month and is maybe the last of the Victorians in style). She’s always used capitals for emphasis so I have letters from her with wonderful gems like:
Judith told me she forgave David after all That, but she is An Angel. He does Not deserve Her. That man is a Devil and a Very Bad husband.
Anyway, I wondered if I was being left behind somehow. Though I don’t think I can adopt the capping thing. I love her, but I just can’t keep from hearing my Nan when I see posts about "playing with different Tops."
Would love to read / hear your thoughts.
