Cythraul: 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?"

Since they're Canadian, the proper thing to do is apologize for being offended and offer the couple a box of Timbits and your spare tickets to the next Halifax v. Newfoundland Women's Professional Curling League exhibition match.

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."

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.

Savage Bacon: sundance1028: I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that most everyone in this thread who is defending the kinky couple and advocating that the parent mind their own business, etc. doesn't have kids of their own. I may be wrong, but it's just a hunch. Explaining things like this to kids is never as simple as you make it sound.

ORLY?

FTA: "My four-year old daughter asked me why the lady was wearing a leash. I told her that she was pretending to be a dog and that the other lady was playing the owner. My daughter loves inventing her own play scenarios and easily accepted my explanation."

Sounds like it took all of 10 seconds. Must've been brutal.


yeah deceiving your kids is way more quicker and easier lulz

that's the best way to raise em

i'm ok you're ok, the next time you and your kids see some creepy old dude luring some small children into a van with candy, don't judge him just tell your kid that he is pretending to be an adult film director, and lulz at it

mikefinch: why is it that the weirdos of the world get to dictate what age my kids are when they come into contact with this crap?

I know kids ask questions and those questions need to be answered honestly. I get that.

dopekitty74: Just tell the kid people are different and some people like the way the collar looks and feels.

WHY? WHY? WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY??? is the incessant cry of the child. And "because" isnt going to cut it. If you cant give them an answer they will take it to a teacher or something similar: "Teacher - why does the girl outside my house like the way collars feel?"  Its not so simple as just brushing their questions away with dumbed down answers.

What they are doing is just plain rude. Whats wrong with polite discourse? The worst thing that can happen is the girl keeps walking her friend in some misguided defiance of your request.

Be polite. Explain WHY its an issue and try to give an alternate option that is reasonable and not some backhanded compromise. Try to find someway to put them into your shoes and let them see things from your perspective. The whole explaining in a nonthreatening manner and then trying to compromise thing can be uncomfortable -- but it works. For some reason i can't explain; acting like a kind, reasonable, considerate and intelligent human being who is willing to listen WORKS.

Its uncomfortable and WAY harder to do than it sounds but it gets really great results. You just need them to sit back for even a half a second to ask themselves "Am i being a jerk?"  and allot of people will feel guilty about causing such a nice person such discomfort. but lets look at what can go right and wrong-
1: The girl agrees and changes her schedule. You thank them. Your child plays innocent and happy.
2: The crazy biatch snaps and bites your nose off like a crazy Saigon whore... You call the police and she is arrested and good thing to because seriously who does that?
3: they flip you off with a rude comment and continue their doggy walks. Nothing has changed i suppose so NOW its time to start worrying about the kids.

Asking strangers to stop behaviour you find innapropriate is really tough to do. just think -- 98% of people are genuinely nice and are deep inside trying to be good people. Even weirdo lesbo S&M practitioners.

Ignoring it just seems like a big complicated adult version of the cold shoulder game kids use to exert power in groups. Its dealing with the problem in the most passive aggressive way possible.


Okay, that sounds reasonable as a first step. But if they persist, I think my brick idea is worth a shot.

Sybarite: 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


I've heard tell that Sir Gerald Nabardo has a pet prawn called Simon and you wouldn't call him a looney; furthermore, Dawn Pailthorpe, the lady show-jumper, had a clam, called Stafford, after the late Chancellor, Allan Bullock has two pikes, both called Chris, and Marcel Proust had an haddock! So, if you're calling the author of 'A la recherche du temps perdu' a looney, I shall have to ask you to step outside!

CheekyMonkey: what_now: (Last fall, my wife Pam was riding her bike sans helmet and a woman in an SUV pulled up, rolled down her window and said: "Did you forget your helmet or are you just stupid?"

She has a point.

Perhaps, but it isn't really her business, is it?  My response would have been, "Are you always such a nosy coont, or is today my lucky day?"


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!

stratagos: 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


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

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...
