There are certain people and things that sometimes make me think, why the hell do we bother? We fight and fight and fight for our rights to do what it is we like to do... we fight for sexual freedoms... and then immature pathetic joyhounds walk on in and screw it up for everyone. Because why the hell shouldn't they?

The FFF article today was the start. Yeah, the writer was obviously another one of those sensationalistic hacks to need to conjure up freak show terminology in order to get his "point" across. But, he also had a point. You know you are in a hotel open to the public. You know it wasn't sold out. You see other people there. So why are you going to wear items that you would die if your mother saw?

That should be a rule. If you're gonna dress fetishy for an open to the public event where vanillas are certain to be walking in and out on their own business... at least wear clothes that you would present yourself to your mother in. Just a start.

But then... this discussion occurs on one of the LJ communities I am a member of.


So this fucktard thinks that because it will make his dick hard, he can do whatever he wants. Screw the consequences. Screw the feelings and opinions of everyone around him. I usually balk at any statement about someone's age. But god damnit kid... someone should put a chastity belt on him and not unlock it until he grows the fuck up.

And kick me in the ass for getting riled up about it. Damn... just got baited on the 'net. I used to make fun of people who got baited into flamewars. Ugh.

I agree with your posts to a point- save your comment that you keep your sex indoors. If you're going to talk the talk lover, walk the walk. You *don't* always keep your play indoors. True, you keep your outdoor play discreet most of the time, but I can think of certain public parks and restraunts and watersports, blow jobs, and other scenes that have happened there with myself or others.

Yes- I agree that what those two did, shock for the sake of shock to get their rocks off, was over the top. But he who lives in a glass house, ya know? I love you. Don't let folks blow apart your argument because of your own actions.

You have a point. I should have been more specific. In my eyes there are major differences between the scenes that you and I have done and what the jackasses on that community have done. I didn't communicate that clearly.

Thank you for the moment of clarity. I let them get the better of me.

Consider me a breath of fresh air- and considering the amount of breath play I've been doing, that is very funny :)

You were right to tell that guy off. He's a total retard and SHOULD have been arrested for that. I can't belive people stood by and watched that, not knowing it was consensual, and didn't do anything!
Also, the scene didn't sound too safe to me.

freaking the mundanes
Many many moons ago, I used to enjoy freaking out the 'mundanes' at Sci-fi conventions...fortunately I've grown out of it.

Like my momma always said, there's a time and a place for everything.

I'm with you on that *completely* inconsiderate (and worse, but I'm feeling gentle tonight) person on that community.

He is only 19. At 19 I was vanilla and engaged.

He will get his one day - you know it.

FFF Article
What is the "FFF Article" you are referring to that pissed you off?

And it is funny, I made a similar comment to g at the flea about some of those in extreme fetish wear. While yes it is within their right to do as they please, and the law allows for only a 1 inch strip to cover your ass - they should use common sense and consider the ramifications to the group as a whole. All I said is wear a damn coat until inthe classroom or vending areas. Problem solved.

I think people tend to forget that there are two sides to this coin. I've been stuck in hotels along side proselytizing bible-thumpers, and not only do they feel free to sing His praises wheresoever they march, they feel that it is OK to actively try to pressure me into doing same.

Are they breaking the law? No. Do I wish they would go to hell? Sure do.

As for the folks at leather cons - they're just the same thing, other side of the coin. Partial nudity in public? Appalling to some mundanes, hell - it's appalling to some of the players, given the lack of taste some community members show. But as long as they're street-legal, those leather cons is where we're SUPPOSED to be able to dress like dirty tramps in the hotel lobby.

If they decide to break the law in public in a pointedly stupid way and they get arrested, well I call that social Darwinism, for the most part.

I read the article, and read the thread, and got just as angry as you did about both situations. I almost jumped into the fray by posting on the thread, but realized what you already knew: that you can't change minds, you can't convince anyone, and you can't have a logical conversation with idiots who just like to piss people off. You will never get anywhere with those people, and they will always be a blight on the rest of us.

I remember going to Bondcon last year and being worried about wearing a collar (with jeans and a sweater) in public. And I'm still glad I think that way.

Eh, I'm with you. Safe, sane, and consensual. When you do something public that is not, well, subtle, you are involving other people without their consent.

Also, throwing someone down the stairs doesn't sound all that safe to me. Sheesh.

Unfortunately, in any community, there will be assholes. I just remain happy that the majority are groovy people like you.
