Do we realise..? (and do we really care?)
« on: 29. June 2010, 12:48:36 PM »
Reading through the English forums (my German is a little rusty, despite supporting Germany in the World Cup), I am struck by the sheer amount of “bullcrap” there is.  The fetishists, men pretending to be women, telling stories that are obviously as false as anything ever dreamt up in the best science fiction novels.  I am willing to bet my lunch-money that not even 10% of those who proclaim to be women, are really female. (they do exist on these forums, jut very, very much in the minority.)

That, I can handle.  But the question I want to ask is how many people who respond to the obvious made-up crap and fantasies KNOW that it is made-up?   Are you honestly believing the stories of 19-year old lesbians with full-bands and high-pull headgear to be worn 24/7? 

Or do you know its all just a fantasy and play your part in it anyway, because its better than nothing?  We are an odd lot, and there’s not too many who will (publically) admit to this fascination, so do we take what we can get?  Or do you think I am the one who is full of crap for mistrusting the majority of posts on these forums?

I think it's pretty obvious that some of the posts are decidely suspicious, but that is part of any forum, never mind one like this. It's obvious that somewhere such as this is not necessarily going to be utterly truthful discussion on the benefits of orthodontic treatment, either. One thing you say makes me think, though:

Are you just referring to the story board? (Haven't made quite enough posts for access to that yet, but I'm working on it ;-)) If so, why is fiction wrong? I write the occasional story myself, and I use wired headgear, significant appliances, orthodontists ordering their (usually male) patients to have haircuts: none of which is ever likely to have been true, but neither is Harry Potter.

The forum also caters for everybody - personally, a woman/girl in braces leaves me cold (which seems to place me something in the minority around here) and much prefer fixed braces: others think there is nothing better than a fully metal-mouthed female or removable braces that inhibit speech.

I think it's just a case of ignoring what you don't like.

No, not the stories – that is at least classified as such. 

I’m talking about profiles and “Hi, I’m Cindi, I’m 19 and lesbian from Amsterdam and I just loooove my headgear” type posts.  There seem to be a lot of them around.  I have on this site seen MAYBE three female posters whom I believe is female.  Most of the rest are guys living out their fantasies through alter-egos.  That’s okay, as long as people realize that there’s a guy behind the facade of the fantasy brace-face lady.

That sounds like an interesting forum, maybe we should all go there!  ;D

This is a relatively quiet forum, and it's reasonable to assume the readers are suspending their reality, so authenticity is not worth worrying about. Sometimes it is fun to see some challenging posts just to get some chatter going. If there was an army of braced and geared lesbians spamming the boards then it might be a different story!
