I found something interesting in Piss Clear

Post by DarrylVanRhey » Wed Oct 18, 2006 3:05 pm

Here's an interesting interview from Piss Clear with a former DPW manager. It has a lot of the backstory of Burning Man that I expect BMORG doesn't want you people to know about. Here's a link to the original article (it's a .pdf file, so you'll need to have Adobe Acrobat installed): http://www.pissclear.org/PDFArchives/Pi ... t_2004.pdf

Here's an interesting passage from it:

longtime DPW
head honcho Will Roger got sent home
by the crew for his drunken endangerments
and sexual harassment of female
crew members – specifically, the accidental
face burning of a DPW female
crew member, who fell onto a fire
barrel during some drunken wrestling
and roughhousing with him during last
year’s clean-up.
PC: Yeah, we heard about that, but no
one wants to talk about it, and the girl
apparently didn’t even press charges.
Tym: Indeed, it was an unfortunate
accident – but the LLC knew for years
that Mr. Roger was often a danger
to himself and others when sauced.
It wasn’t so much the accident that got
him in trouble as it was his subsequent
behavior, which consisted of
offering her oral sex in lieu of med

offering her oral sex in lieu of medical
treatment and interfering drunkenly
with the EMT treating her.
PC: Wow, that’s fucked up!
Tym: To be fair, Mr. Roger was in an
alcoholic blackout, and remembered
none of this – he was properly chagrined
and sent to rehab. Despite all
his good work in the past, the whole
thing brought to light a consistent pattern
of sexual harassment – at
least when drunk – over the years.

So what year did this happen? 2004? Yep. Shit stirring again. Fucking sock puppet. Nobody wants to hear your tired old shit. Be gone and don't let the door hit your ass on the way out.

I dont see why the ORG would not want that out. It makes the ORG look very professional by removing someone that had a couple of problems. Accidents happen .. more often when people drink. Personally I think the "Great Blow Job Bust" is a far more interesting article from that issue.

No. BMORG turned a blind eye to his behavior for years. It was his fellow DPW members who -- to their great credit -- insisted he be removed from his post and get help.

It's quite similar to the way that BMORG continues to turn a blind eye to the general problem of rape and sexual assault at Burning Man. If an organization refuses to protect women who volunteer for it from sexual harassment from one of its senior leaders, is it any surprise that that same organization really doesn't give a fuck about the increasing number of rapes and other assaults against women that take place out on the playa?
