Came across this gem from the Auburn Mall yesterday on the interwebs:
Just another day at the Auburn Mall. Now that the Greendale Mall is closed the Auburn Mall has officially become the mall for weirdos in the 508. Not to be confused with the Midtown Mall which is still the official mall for junkies and bootleg churches.
The picture was shared on a closed Facebook group called “The Auburn Site,” and it started this whole debate about whether or not a dude in a diaper playing on kid’s rides was something parents should be concerned about:
“It’s not a sexual fetish, it’s just a fetish.”
Oh. OK then. So I guess grown men living out their fetishes on children’s rides at a public mall is perfectly kosher, so long as it doesn’t involve full frontal nudity. Got it.
Look, I get what people are saying, but all you need to know is that when someone asked one of these ladies if they would would allow their kids near this guy her answer was “no.” She said she’d keep on walking. Newsflash – you shouldn’t be forced to “keep on walking” in order to avoid a 50 year old man in a diaper at the Auburn Mall. That’s just common sense. What if your kids wanted to use one of those rides? What if that would’ve been the perfect amount of time for you to let them entertain themselves while you went on your phone and read Turtleboy Sports? Well, you wouldn’t be able to because for whatever reason you’re standing up for a 50 year old man in a diaper who is playing on rides that are clearly there for children to use.
Notice this guy wasn’t walking around in a diaper in Macy’s or Sears or any other part of the mall that wasn’t specifically created to be a child magnet. Is it hilarious? Yes. Should you still call the cops? Yes. Hell, you could even call mall security, since this is one of the only types of situations that they’re equipped to handle. But surrendering the kid’s rides to a grown man in a diaper is just place un-American.
We urge you to support the Turtleboy Sponsors by doing business with them. Without them none of this is possible. Click on any of them to check out their sites or Facebook pages.
