>My take on events that involve sex is that I should never be surprised
Absolutely. I recall another time a sex group did a 5mof presentation, i
noticed there was a young child in the space. The presenter did not
check, or provide warnings, just launched right into it. When i realized
the content, I made a point to ask the presenter: "Is this presentation
child safe?". The presenter answered "no", and the parents quickly
removed their child.
The presenter's fault? No-- NB needs to disseminate it's values and
Same as we cannot blame people living in the space, after opening the
doors wide to anyone and everyone. Roughly throwing they and their
belongings out on the street after the fact, as if they are criminals
who have clearly violated nb's rules is unfair, because the rules are
unclear, plus the open-door policy, plus possible encouragement they
might have received from a member who supports letting people crash in
Before hating on squatters, NB needs to own responsiblity: clarify our
rules, adjust the open-door policy, and get all members on the same page
about people sleeping in the space.
