Please, don't place the diabolo to your crotch
« on: September 24, 2007, 09:27:55 PM »
It's been here for a while. Putting diabolo to your crotch is ugly, looks really disturbing and
is wrong in so many levels. Think about it, you wouldn't sexually abuse anybody. Yet, you
violate the diabolo by stucking it up in the wrong places. There is many better places to have
it, for example on your hand with the stick or at the armpit. We have started a campaign against
this. Please reconsider your habits. Think about it and fight against it.

So, i see you have the belief that only men play diabolo...
Or women are also raping them?... :P
Anyway i 'll hire a man to give me the diabolos on the hand...

Rather than injuring my back picking up each diabolo when loading up three, it seems so simple to keep them up near arms reach and use my legs to hold the thing. Sure it looks ugly - but it works.

Aren't there bigger issues out there? Like the suicide marks you get from bad throws and tosses? Work on that one as well.

No, we have seen this thing happening among the female diabolists as well.
And yes one of our slogans is aimed for men because after all the men are the
majority here. But the fact that women do this as well don't change it being wrong.
So even if you're female, this is for you. Women can and are capable of making
crimes too.

And sorry i won't post better quality pics here. But were are going for the posters
soon... :) 

I wouldn't accept biting them, would you bite your friend? I wouldn't.

but i like putting my diabolos there, it is a very convenient way of holding your diabolos, but i agree it is ugly, maybe putting it on the floor or under an arm would be more appropriate. :D

Actually you can put three diabolos in your armpit and still add spin to your one diabolo
on the string. I've seen it done live before 4 diabolos high.  So having two diabolos there is
no problem. If you can do three diabolos you can make a difference and a world
little better place by not using your crotch. It not that hard.

Ben^, have you ever heard that rapist usually likes doing that? ;)

I think we should hold a celebration for the momentous occasion when it happens. Which could happen tonight if Tijn keeps posting.

It is a very cool looking poster, I must admit.

Dear Marko,

Thank you for making your views on this topic clear for everyone. It is an issue I have been consistantly addressing for many years now and I'm glad someone with your clear vision has finally done something about it. I hope this will lead to a new era of understanding in the world of diabolo, one in which diabolo players no longer look like complete and utter idiots.

Thank you again,

Luke Burrage

There's absolutely no reason to keep diabolos between your legs.
Thanks Marko and others who made it so visible for everyone.

Perhaps you have never thought of the fact that diabolos like getting this sort of attention :D
Some things out in the world just like being in the spotlight and will do just about anything to get someone or something to pay attention to it :P

And you can't statistically prove this if diabolos don't voice their own opinion or fill out surveys, etc. XD

Well my one of white performing diabolos, which upon Lukes advice have never have nestled snugly between my lilly white thighs, took it upon itself to attack my crotch tonight whilst I was practising. None of my crotch conditioned diabolos have ever done this before... Read into that what you will.

Personally I think diabolo placement facists are repressed sexualy and are uncomfortable having their eye drawn towards someones genitalia. (Though I'd avoid that placement on stage unless you are doing burlesque cabaret)

Nice poster.
Diabolo in the crotch is too convenient to stop. However, i hate playing with a diabolo that has been warmed up by someones manlyhood :-X.
For people obsessed with diabolo (like martijn, soon be 'officially obsessed' with 2000 posts :D), putting the diabolo between the legs could be a subtle sexual release from a diabolo fetish :D
