[00:04:00] <GauntletWizard> You know what?
[00:04:10] <GauntletWizard> Conventions used to implicitly mean Kink
[00:04:30] <GauntletWizard> I mean, star trek conventions, everbody knew that everyone else was having sex in spock ears
[00:04:46] <GauntletWizard> That's not the case anymore, hasn't been for years
[00:04:53] <GauntletWizard> And maybe it never really was...
[00:05:26] <GauntletWizard> except from old usenet postings, people who've been going far too long, the FIAWOL crowd, I definelty got that vibe
[00:05:57] <Apsup> Isn't there a creepy craigslist or whatever postings around cons these days too?
[00:06:12] <GauntletWizard> as a teenager/college kid going to cons, it certainly seemed like everybody was banging
[00:06:32] <GauntletWizard> Apsup: Yeah, but now they're 'creepy craigslist postings' and not 'how to find parties'
[00:06:41] <GauntletWizard> I mean, maybe I'm just on the outside
[00:07:02] <GauntletWizard> but the 'creepy' stories in today's reddit thread seem to be kinky flirting being interpreted by squares
[00:10:24] <Demisedulous> I still laugh when I hear about the 'BroNYCon Orgy"
[00:11:08] <GauntletWizard> Magfest had a sonic-themed orgy announced, which drew a big group of people to watch who showed up
[00:11:10] <GauntletWizard> nobody did
[00:11:30] <GauntletWizard> I mean, there was one guy who showed up, looked at the crowd, walked away dejectedly...
[00:11:45] <GauntletWizard> but I imagine that was preformance art, not an actual person expecting a sonic orgy
[00:16:32] <GauntletWizard> It seems that as kink has become more acceptable, it's also become more shamed. People skirt the line ever closer, but the line is still there and the closer everyone is getting to it, the more crossing it is rejected
[00:18:05] <Demisedulous> Cosplay is not consent!
[00:21:53] <GauntletWizard> exactly my point
[00:22:35] <GauntletWizard> That entire movement is right, and that is the most bullshit part of it.
[00:23:17] <GauntletWizard> More and more women are dressing 'slutty', but the boundaries of what is acceptable to say to them have not changed...
[00:23:27] <GauntletWizard> which is sad, because those boundaries are misplaced
[00:24:05] <GauntletWizard> Crossing the line is and will remain an awful thing...
[00:24:22] <GauntletWizard> but the line should move as people get closer.
[00:25:29] <GauntletWizard> If you are dressed as a hot character, yes that creepy dude is going to hit on you, and that is okay. Him creeping you out is unfortunate for you both

[11:01:08] <Bronz|work> Hey apsup.
[11:02:20] <Apsup> Yo
[11:10:25] <Bronz|work> I miss Aria being at work.
[11:12:31] <Apsup> Why isn't he?
[11:14:01] <Bronz|work> Sickness.
[11:14:06] <Bronz|work> He's down with the sickness.
[11:14:13] <Bronz|work> Specifically, sinusitis
[11:14:24] <Bronz|work> Which is so hard to say for such a relatively simple word.
[11:15:02] <Apsup> Oh no! Sickness bad.
[11:15:43] <Bronz|work> He's ok for most of the day, but he gets headaches that are pretty bad throughout the day.
[11:32:46] <Bronz|work> Anyway, how are you feeling?
[11:34:08] <Apsup> Alive.
[11:34:21] <Apsup> Though I need to go to the store. I have no food items at home.
[11:35:17] <Apsup> Also my face is dry. It has been a lot lately.
[11:41:53] <Bronz|work> Get dem cream, I guess?
[11:42:18] <Bronz|work> I also have no food at home, and all I need to do to fix that is just online shop, and have it delivered.
[11:42:23] <Bronz|work> I don't because I'm a lazy arse though.
[11:46:15] <Apsup> I have been using cream. It just dries again way soon. Lately I've put more cream in my face than is in a really creamy food.
[11:46:25] <Apsup> Not the best analogy.
[11:47:16] <Bronz|work> Just stuff your face with icecream.
[11:47:22] <Bronz|work> Problem solved,next problem plz

[15:00:07] <yoshokatana> morning
[15:00:49] <Bronz|work> Still equally cold out?
[15:05:22] <yoshokatana> yup
[15:11:03] <Apsup> We have plus decrees.
[15:11:08] <Apsup> Decree.
[15:11:10] <Apsup> One.
[15:18:02] <Bronz|work> Degree?
[15:18:08] <Bronz|work> Or do you actually decree stuff?
[15:32:18] <Apsup> g c it's all the same.
[15:34:32] <Bronz|work> I decree: From now on, degree and decree are homonyms and synonyms.

[15:44:26] <Bronz|work> Hello wryterra|work!
[15:44:33] <Bronz|work> I can tell you're very hard working, since it's in your name.
[15:54:34] <wryterra|work> Yes, people with work in their name are extremely dilligent and hard working, especially when they're on irc during the work day :D
[15:55:16] <Bronz|work> I would be working, but I'm too busy goofing off instead.
[15:55:25] <Bronz|work> You understand, I'm sure.
[16:51:53] <wryterra|work> All too well :)
[16:52:36] <Bronz|work> I don't think you do, it looks like the last hour you've been doing work.
[16:52:41] <Bronz|work> Very unprofesional.
