Punch him in the face.

Who's "him" ?

Twitch Boy: Punch him in the face.


Reread the headline and article, it's a lesbian couple.

FTA: But I don't love having to explain S&M role-play to my four-year old...

Can we all just officially conclude that "I don't want to have to take time to explain your actions to my offspring so just stop doing what I don't like" is a pathetically lazy and worthless argument? It's your damn kid, take responsibility for raising them and answering their questions about the world they're in instead of thrusting the responsibility on others to alter their behaviour to fit your particular idea of what the world should be.

/the woman is clearly an AW anyway, so who cares?

Politely remind them to carry a plastic bag for when the biatch shiats on the path

Ok, everyone is wrong here.

* The couple is nonconsentually involving others in their private life. That is, at the very least, rude.

* The parent needs to step up and be a parent. If they thinl snowflake is going to go through life and never be exposed to anything not on Leave It To Beaver, they're insane. They shouldn't go out of their way to *expose* their kid to wacky stuff, but they damn should be ready to explain if the kid sees something and has a question

And now I read the article and it seems mom did exactly that. Color me embarrassed

This. Part of the BDSM scene is safe/sane/consensual. Involving others in your play who didn't consent to be there is a violation of that tenet.

That's a direct quote from the linked article.

Just say to your kid, "They're crazy people. Stay away from them."
 
2013-02-01 08:06:11 AM
I realize that the BSDM folks like humiliation and dehumanizing behavior, but I have a problem with it.
But if I see this in my neighborhood, I would let it go.  Nothing you say is going to change anyone's mind.
 
2013-02-01 08:11:54 AM
If your fetish involves eliciting a reaction from your unwitting neighbors, you're basically committing rape.
I'd say the best course of action is for everybody to totally ignore them, so they won't be able to get off on the thrill anymore.
Better yet, have everybody walk their significant others around on a leash.  Let these girls know they're just like all the other boring suburbanites, and their dog role play thing isn't "edgy" anymore.

/Also, let me know where this neighborhood is once that happens, so I can move there...

Let's not turn this into a bike thread.  I'm already at work so can't GIS for photos of people in S&M clothes riding bikes.

gopher321: Just say to your kid, "They're crazy people. Stay away from them."


That is pretty much what I would say.  There is no need to come up with things like "they are playing puppy and owner" or even attempt to explain that the one on the leash appreciates the humiliation aspect of a BDSM lifestyle.  Keep it simple - "They are weird and crazy, stay away..."

Also, it is none of your damn business, as long as they are not doing any pubic displays of sexual behavior, keep to yourself.

Parading your girlfriend through a residential street on the end of a leash is a classic case of "épater la bourgeoisie" - like when the Surrealist poet Gérard de Nerval used to promenade his pet lobster Thibault through the streets of Paris on the end of a blue ribbon.

At least it wasn't named Breakfast.

/silly name for a lobster

Yeah, assuming this isn't some sort of hoax article, I think behavior like this would be going a bit too far. There's a time and place for all things. Out public in your neighborhood is not the place for BDSM sexy-time play, unless you live in the Castro.

If they want to involve the whole neighborhood, involve the whole neighborhood. "What breed is she? Is she a rescue? Can I pet her? Wait has she had all her shots? Look at the size of those feet, how big is she supposed to get?"

My neighbors biatch that my dog barks. I think I can biatch about neighbors being all publicly weird. Do that shiat like a Republican...behind closed doors... Or at Comic Con like God intended.

One call to Animal Control about a rabid biatch should do it!

I feel as though your comments are nonconsentually involving me in the private thoughts in your head.


This thread is useless without pics of the lesbian couple.

Yeah, I hate when other people walk down the street when I'm doing so.  Goddamn them for intruding on my solitude.

It's a deliberate act of provocation and nose-thumbing to your "conventional thinking" and "bourgeois, materialistic values."

A very drawn-out way of saying "they're attention whores". The only thing to do is ignore them and write them off as fark ups who put their own desires to be unique snowflakes above other people.
 
2013-02-01 08:58:28 AM
If she is that worried about her running away that she needs a leash she probably isn't a very good mistress. Hell my dog can walk next to me without a leash.
 
2013-02-01 08:58:36 AM
If she does not like mind her bring her outside on a leash, like other people's dog, can I pat her on the back and say nice doggie like other people's dog?

We were at Disney World during the Gay Days a couple years ago.  Took my older kid aside and explained what he might see and that no matter what we think about it, keep it to yourself.

/Didn't really have any issues
//lots of rainbow mickey pins
///definitely expectations vs reality

I wear a collar out in public with my SO sometimes. But it's a thin leather one that looks like a choker. We sure as hell don't run around AWing where kids are about.

CSB:

About 20 years ago when I was in college, I was working in a pizza place in Portland, Ore. Portland is very kink-friendly and was even back then.

The pizza place, however, was down south close to Gresham in a heavily residential area and was a family-oriented place.

One Sunday evening -- which was when they had free pizza buffet for kids -- a couple in leather trench coats walked in. She was wearing a collar and he had her on a leash. The place was jammed with kids.

They got seated in some other section. A few minutes later I was getting some drinks and the server for their section was there. "Where's the kinky couple?" I asked.

"They stomped out a minute ago," she said. "I asked if something was wrong and the guy said everyone was staring at them."

i would have waited for her to slow down and then biked into her front bumper and fallen over the hood. Hard to see the cops taking the woman's side when she intentionally pulled over to harass a cyclist. Enjoy your new insurance rates!
