Besides Chelsea, the new Silver Line also makes stops in the demimonde

Guy in a dog mask on the new Silver Line
Woof!

As you might expect, the MBTA pulled out all the stops today for the inaugural runs of the new Silver Line 3 between Chelsea and South Station.

GM Luis Manuel Ramirez took a ride on the newest part of the T system and a photographer was on hand to chronicle him - and, it seems, a rider ready for some BDSM action.

H/t Rachel Braccini for noticing the dog face.

Had to relook up the meaning of the term.

"Fringe" is the New Bourgeoisie, so long as it's cute and safe-looking.

Thank our Currents in Power for voting to push the actual demimonde back out past the fringes with FOSTA.

LOL

you're kinda right. That guy is called a "Puppy"

It's almost like BDSM , but the puppy thinks and acts like a dog. Less whips and chains, and more barking and petting.

(Okay even I don't get the fetish but alot of people are into that kind of role play)

Public Kinkplay

By on

I get it that getting stared at and embarrassed on public transit might be part of the thrill, but involving a bunch of strangers who have no ability to opt out of being part of your scene is rude. Keep it behind closed doors where everybody involved consented.

Obviously you don't actually ride the T

I've seen far worse things than this guy, who looks more like a cosplayer on his way to an anime show than anything else. How is he harming you?

Spoken like an insecure guy

By on

You clearly don't ride the T and I really doubt that you are female.

I'd sit next to this guy any day. So long as he isn't humping my leg or back like some of the "regular" jerks have done.

lol ok dude

By on

the bdsm community holds itself to a really high standard for consent, which sorry, when you're wearing a mask or a leash or clamps and walking around in the public because people staring gives you a fun/sexy thrill, those people haven't consented to being part of your scene.

like yeah I'd rather hang with this dude than the guys rubbing it out on the B, but those guys are immense creeps and if you're part of the kink scene to the point where your twitter handle has your id on it, I guess I just expect better. T-flashers and the guys cutting their toenails and doing all kinds of other nasty shit don't take 3948023 selfies of themselves doing it and get super psyched at accidental wider exposure via a PR stunt.

How is that diff

By on

How is that different than wearing a sexy outfit? One can wear lots of things that make them feel sexy. Tight pants, nice makeup, and so on... but the moment its a benign dog hood... "That guy is not letting people opt-out of the scene". Have you been out on the town on a Saturday night before? Let people wear what they want. It's not hurting anyone.

Agreed

By on

As a gay guy I can't "opt out" of seeing girls who choose to dress with their breasts falling out of their tops. But their choice impacts my life in no way. Just like this dude with a mask on his face impacts me in no way.

And part of the idea of "Pup Play" as I understand it s really not sexual at all, but letting go of being a person for a bit and just enjoying life like a puppy would (and at the same time not feeling self conscious about it).

Look

I don't care what you wear, even if it has the "meaning" that I don't grock.

Keep your hands to yourself, put your backpack down, don't block the doors, and give up your seat for those who cannot stand and we are good.

Those Seats

By on

Those seats look like the most uncomfortable rides I've ever seen in any form of public transit. It looks like you're placed in the middle of an egg slicer.

That's not the seat

That's the articulated accordion thingy in the middle.

They squeeze a regular blue seat in there.

Give it a day, the Real

Give it a day, the Real Estate agents will have their write ups edited "With the new Silver Line Chelsea now has unparalleled access to the best pet services in Greater Boston."

* Normally I would not poke fun at a regular person just being themselves but based off of his profile I think he would appreciate this as me laughing along with him and not at him. In reality it is a joke aimed at the Real Estate industry :p

This photo should win a UHub Pulitzer.

It perfectly captures the typical common man rides the bus stunt of a public agency head while expressing the ever present Boston ball busting of our sarcastic humor loving people.

Speaking of equipment shortages...

By on

For those actually paying attention, MBTA has transferred a couple of the electric buses from Cambridge and re-painted them as Silver line units. They are electric only and will only operate between South Station and Silver Line Way where the wire service ends and loops back. This frees-up the dual-power units for service to Chelsea.

It looks like they've been lounging this weekend

By on

at Courthouse Station.

In other Courthouse Station news, it looks like they have finally repaired the outbound escalator from the platform.

But the inbound countdown clocks were way off this weekend, advertising times of 18+ minutes, when in reality a bus arrived within 5 minutes both Saturday and Sunday when I was there in the early afternoon. The T actually lost business because of this, as some saw the countdown clocks and decided to walk back out of the station instead of waiting. Of course, the outbound countdown clocks have never worked.
