Burning Man has a rape and sexual assault problem

But if we all pretend it's not there, I'm sure it will go away.

Basis?

Postby Tardis » Wed Sep 24, 2003 2:08 am

What's your basis for saying there's a problem? I may be mistaken, but I believe there were a couple of incidents this year. Of course, that's a couple too many, but for a community of 30k+ that may be on the low side

Exactly. Let's pretend it doesn't happen.

Or alternatively...

... we could discuss it intelligently.

Should we start addressing him as Mr. Hat?

It's about damn time someone started a flame war. There's entirely too much love on this board.

Mr. Hat, you are a fuckhead.

:evil: :evil: Nattering? SLOBBERDONKEY?!?! Why, if I weren't just lightheartedly backing up Blenderhead's idea I would take that silly NRA bear avatar and shove it up your colon you ill-tempered, burrowing mustelid!!! But then, you knew that.

must...not...bite....hook........must.....not....flame


oh fuck it!

Was the sexual assault problem you're referring to the fact that you had a hard time commiting any with all the helpful community members kicking your ass everytime you tried?

Sorry, didn't mean to bite the lame ass hook, but I really needed to rant at somebody.

I'll happily jump in and take the flame-bait if Mr. Hat will tell me where to get a 40'x40' heavy canvas ground tarp for a reasonable price.

Or astro-turf.

Or maybe a 35' flagpole.

Scaffolding?

Fuck, I'll take about anything at this point.

On the real

Postby Patience » Wed Sep 24, 2003 11:02 am

I am actually curious to what extent sexual assault occurs out there. I spoke to several women who told me about scary situations from previous years, and it's hard to imagine it not happening, with the amount of drug and alcohol use going around.

"Trolling" aside, (okay, I'm a noob. I don't know what trolling is. ) how often do you think sexual assault occurs, and is there anything that can be done?

This is discussed extensively and, for the most part, intelligently, in the "Sexual Violence" thread.

Trolling: making inflammatory statements not to provoke discussion, but to incite a riot.

I second the tazer idea ... but then we would have a problem with too many giddy tazerers. MY, that could be fun!

Salami slingshots (funny, that's what I call my thong) are OK, but we don need no steenkin' vegi tables 'round heere.
