Re: @Trevor_Potts again
"If you know in advance that you suffer from sporadic or unintentional erections then it is perfectly reasonable to assume that you would be prepared to take appropriate action before or during such an event should it "arise" ( pun intended)."
A) Virtually all males "suffer" from this. It's not abnormal. It's simply part of begin male. I object strenuously to your using the term "suffer" here at all, as you again attempting to indicate that erections are bad, abnormal or harmful. They aren't.
Read this. It might start to alleviate your ignorance.
B) Why should I have to do anything about the fact that I might have an erection? There's nothing wrong with it. You have not yet manged to explain what might be wrong with having an erection or why anything should be done about it at all.
"If however you already know about your afflication"
Erections are not affliction. Erections that occur without conscious control aren't afflictions. They are a normal and healthy part of being a male.
"decide to walk through the park wearing thin white spandex shorts whilst taking the occasional glance at the local sunbathing, penis fearing , sunday school, virgin beauties then quite possibly you could be considered as having the "intent" to shock"
If the milled masses can't cope with the sight of an erection that's their problem. There's nothing abnormal, harmful or "bad" about an erection. Unless and until someone can prove that there is harmful intent there is no grounds to restrain me or my member from going about our day.
There is also no grounds to presume that either of us have an "intent to shock". Because, again, you've done nothing to prove that there's anything wrong or abnormal about having erections, or that I should consider them something to be hidden, worried about, be ashamed of or otherwise cover in a dick burkha.
"In the case of a gun owner, walking about Central Park whilst actually holding a cocked ( pun intended) and loaded pistol in your hand would be probably be considered "intent" to incite reaction"
Probably true, but that wasn't the comparison. An erection was simply compared to walking around with a gun. And you taking that bad comparison and then compounding it by now comparing a perfectly natural body function "to pointing a loaded gun at people" is outrageous and insane.
""Intent" is probably not so easy to prove but I think in many cases it could be shown that insufficient care was taken to mitigate the risks...."
WHAT FUCKING RISK?
