Re: Police Using Entrapment

Does anybody say "Candy" non-ironically ?? Is this some next-level narc shit, where they use deliberately outdated and lame drug slang, so that people assume they aren't a narc since a narc wouldn't use such obviously ridiculous and narc-y language? If so, they are stepping up their game. I didn't r...

Re: Stay away from the panty boutique!

It's an interesting question: to what degree is B.E.D. preaching to the choir, so to speak? I think there are plenty of people out there at the burn who aren't "sex camp fiends" who could benefit from a little reminder or education about communication & consent. But is the message even getting to th...

Re: Stay away from the panty boutique!

As a sound byte principle, "ask first" works because it encompases so much behavior, not just sexual behavior, and embeds it in a bit of common sense human decency. Perhaps I am over simplifying, but I think most burners and for that matter most people already know this. I think you are right, it's...

Re: Stay away from the panty boutique!

The org itself should be more forthcoming about what actually happens at the event. This. I can understand that there might be all kinds of reasons the org doesn't want to publicize info about rapes and sexual assaults, but they need to suck it up and do the right thing. More dialogue is needed and...

Perfect example of the "haha, rape is funny" rape culture bullshit which helps perpetuate attitudes that encourage/enable rapists and panty boutique creeps.

Re: Stay away from the panty boutique!

The irony being that the "sex" camps are the ones who are most likely already aware of best practices around communication and consent. Many have their own policies (official or unofficial) in place already. The Bureau of Erotic Discorse was mentioned in the 2012 rape thread. They are a much needed ...

I get it, and get that most of this is just fantasy retribution/snark. Still, feels like an important point, especially given OP genuinely asking for people's thoughts on playa justice.

Re: Taggers/playa justice

Playa justice is different from vigilante justice how exactly? In the creativity of proposed punishments? Even in such a cut & dry case of catching the guy in the act, I have to agree with some seeing eye. I would not want to be a part of any "justice" (violence) handed out. And if I should find mys...

Re: Did you use Bus to Flame?

I used the ToFlame bus from Reno to BRC and then back. I would not go nearly so far as to call it a crappy experience. There were some "minor" bumps along the way, but overall I was pleased with the experience. I was on one of the two buses that were scheduled to depart at 3:00 PM on Sunday and esti...

Re: Super 8 in Sparks--Free room

The driver for one of the ToFlame charter buses was poking fun at BurningMan for being the "small" event going on that week. He claimed the cook-off was twice as big at 100,000.

It doesn't seem to be too big of a leap from the R in PLUR to LNT etc. BUT... change must come from within, pressure must be applied from within the peer group.

Re: Serial Rapist on the playa

False allegations are very common with all types of crime. I'm not sure why they wouldn't happen with rape too. Does it happen? Sure. Is it "very common" ? Rapists and rape apologists would sure like you to think so. There is no other type of crime where accusers are comparably shamed, doubted and ...

I'm sorry your daughter went through this. There really really should be rape kits and people trained to administer them on the playa. Really.

Tuesday night, riding around out on the playa, I stopped my bike at the edge of a dancing crowd that had gathered around a stationary art car. There was a plainly-dressed, middle aged guy sitting on a bike a small distance from the crowd, just watching. I'm thinking "man, this guy probably doesn't r...
