Hostilities Erupt at the Michfest Forum!

Troublesome poster keepitontheREAL violates the forum's passive-aggressive status quo with her strident insistence that Festie Virgins follow the rules and regulations...or face the consequences! This confrontational approach does not go over well with the other systers who prefer a spoonful of sugar with their control freakiness. Will the Spirit of Fest prevail?

A poster in one of the previous threads had an interesting idea about this: he/she wrote, that the Michfest womyn are waiting for 360 days for this thing, which is a pretty huge event for them (one said that she would cancel on her daughters wedding). So they want to make sure that it is perfect and lives up to their imagination. It has to be the BEST few days in their whole year. That puts on a lot of pressure.

Many women who are attacked on a regular basis because of their gender, sexuality, appearance, political beliefs, etc. are going to turn angry.

The same thing happens with men, too, you know. It happens to everyone to some degree. Freepers suffer disappointment and decide to hate all liberals; white people blame the economy on people of color; lately, I've seen a spate of youngish hetero men online who hate all women because no one will sleep with them.

Little about her.It was her first fest. My second. She was from a small town in Minnesota. She said she had never felt more alive in her life. Never so free. She was older than me. In her late 30s.That Fest ended with a promise. We would exchange no contact information. Rather we would meet the following year at Fest and begin anew. Fest Magic. See You Next August. Tears.The following year I looked for Liz, my heart overflowing with desire and excitement.But I did not find her. I wept.The following year I looked for Liz, refusing to give up hope.But again, I did not find her. I wept.Over the following year I tried to forget her. Her hair. Her smell. The way she laughed.It was late July and I was at my local Wal-Mart, picking up some last minute items for Fest. I was just about finished checking out when I heard a familiar voice.It was Liz.My heart fluttered as I looked up and saw her standing only ten feet away. I opened my mouth to speak but could not make a sound.Suddenly, her eyes locked with mine and I felt overcome with emotion. I wanted to run to her, to embrace her, to tell her that I missed her.But something was wrong. She did not look happy. She looked alarmed at the sight of me.And then I saw why.She was calling out to three children. Not young children either. Teenagers. Clearly her own. They joined her, as did a man - her husband, clearly, and they all hastily made their way out of the store.Overwhelmed, I staggered to my car, placed my purchases in the trunk and began the drive home.A stoplight at a T-intersection. I look to my left. Liz is in the passenger seat of the minivan next to me. Her husband driving, her kids in the back. Her eyes are locked with mine.As my eyes begin to flood with tears, I notice that her hand is dangling from the car window.Hanging from her hand? The Crescent Moon necklace.The light turned green. They turned left and I turned right. I have not seen Liz since.I will look for her again this year.

Regardless of whether KIOTR is a DL poster, there is indeed a rule that womyn are not to play male-voiced music on the Land.

Wouldn't that mean they were emulating the hateraping patriarchy?

I honestly think Fest is like a hydra. As soon as I think I have a rule pinned down, two more spring up.

What are the socio-political ramifications of bearing a "strap-on" when frolicking in the woods? Is it rape?

by Anonymousreply 10307/04/2010

That's because some are the hardcore festival goers and workers and then there seems to be those very causal ones (majority) that just go. When you have a mix like that, of course one rule is going to spring up 2 more.

No r109. Whatever day you show up, you must buy a ticket that covers the remainder of the Fest.

However you can plead poverty and get a reduced rate ticket.

This lady's Fest sounds like it's going to be a nightmare!

[quote]I am going with my child, know no one and in two hours I am getting an MRI so I could find out why I can't walk without pain. The tickets came yesterday and at first I was amped and then I realized WTH am I doing?!

I registered with dart but we are camping at the family campground. I have a cpap that I must sleep with every night, I am trying to figure out marine deep cycling batteries. My daughter at 7 is an extremely picky eater, she is also in therapy for anger issues. She is great at school and playdates, but she breaks mirrors and beats up her Dad and has recently started to hurt me. So much anger in a small child. I am in tears trying to get all the equipment together, wondering how I will set up my tent.

Parenting her is so different then her brother who is almost 17.

I am going to bring a little tent for her to have her toys and stuff in. She has camped before but apparently doesn't remember. We are going on a 3 day camp before the fest so hopefully she will be get used to it.

She is excited about playing with the other girls. I hope it stays that way. As for me, I am not asking the Goddess for much, a mostly calm happy week meeting new women and if I can see BETTY, that would be aces. I saw them at the last fest I went to, whenever Limboland came out.

It is so hard sometimes, all that rage in a small cute bundle. 90% of the time she is herself, happy and creating and playing and then she flips out.

She is at her therapist right now, a small break for me!

Rose, your daughter stole and sharted on my Vagina Cape. She has not only crossed my boundaries, she has made me attend my croning ceremony sans a colorful celebratory garment. I have a Clitoral Cap, but it isn't as nice as a Vagina Cape!

I have reported her to the Fest, and I'm afraid you won't be invited back.

Do they get some outward designation, so others can know that the croning has taken place? They could wear a scarlet letter C on their shirt, but (a) that doesn't work if they're going topless, and (b) others may think it stands for Cunti, the name of a Hindu goddess.
