Fair Disclosure: I’ve attended the Toronto TNG munch since 2007. I’ve been involved on an organization level since 2009. And now on with the show….
What is the point of the TNG?
Is it a first step kink organization, or is it a youth kink organization?
If it’s first step organization, why don’t we allow people of all ages? Afer all, people discover kink at different ages in life. What new kinksters are share is the fact that they’re new.
But, if the point of the of the TNG is to be a youth focused kink group, and I aruge that is is, this explains the age restrction. Does it justify it? Nope. But sorry, that argument has been done to death for me. Like it or not, special groups exist. I consider this to be a morally neautral subject. You, of course, dear reader, are welcome to disagree.
So if the TNG exists as a youth focused kink organization then what does opening the vents up to all ages do? It compromises the youth space that has been created and risks losing what attracted the TNG members to the group in the first place. Now, this hypothesis does assume that what attracts TNG’ers to the group in the first place is the fact that it is a youth organization…. And if that premise is false, then I find myself back to the original question.
Why does the TNG exist?
On a complete tangent, if you`ve ever found yourself curious about how the TNG came to existance, you can hear it from the man himself, here.
