I agree that the post didn't make a whole lot of sense...but where'd the furry comment come from? The Sonic stuff? Did I miss something?
But really, it is a silly reason not to go. People will sexualize anything. It shouldn't stop you from wearing what you want (within reason) or going to certain places. I like knee-high socks and some guys have a ...thing for that, but I'm not wearing it for them, and I'm not going to stop wearing something I like just because someone might associate that with some naughty school girl fantasy. I hope Throwfox can get past caring what others think of her so she can just have fun doing what she likes to do.
Read her other posts and profile/etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.
Besides the fact that it was kind of the point. By placing in the same kind of narrowminded view and unacceptance of judgment as she does in my post it shows just how quick judging and hypocritical she was being based on single off handed comments pertaining to the comparison of regularly accepted associations.
I wonder if the OP has ever been to San Francisco. Or... outside before. The judgments she is complaining about being associated with conventions happen everywhere. Whether it be the internet, San Jose, or Boise Idaho. Socially accepted and associated views. They're not even stereotypes because in all intent and purpose, that's what things like chokers are made for. They're bondage equipment that some people decided to wear as fashionable accesories.
Let's think about it... what are chokers and leashes for? Animals. Animals wear these things so their owner/master can contain/restrain/control their animals.
BY DEFINITION AND CREATION THAT IS WHAT THESE OBJECTS ARE. So if someone is wearing a choker, making that association is only natural to do.
It's literally like wa friendpulling out a vibrator. It's only normal association to assume that she uses it to masturbate... because that is the intent and purpose of it. IIt may be a gag gift that isn't even hers, but it is completely understandable to assume that is the purpose of it.
Now the important part is, whether or not the OP realizes that she is being just as judgmental and prejudice as the people she's criticizing only, most of them aren't, while she clearly is.
