    Can't say I'm able to go along with this hyperbolic take on an unpleasant, but age-old festival custom. Sexual assault?!

    I think 'assault' covers it OK :hmm:

    Well, it's not a sexual assault, but it is assault and it is pretty fucking disgusting.

    It's V festival isn't it? Being a dick is part of the territory. I'm just glad these people are all off the streets for a weekend and condensed into a field being pricks to each other rather than out in my town telling each other rape jokes and pissing in shop doorways.

    i thought it was widely understood showers were available at v.

    just wasn't stated what the shower consisted of or when you'd get it.

    It's also a great place to sell small cubes of mud to teenagers for ten quid a pop.

    I think it is utterly revolting. And there is something extremely fucked up about someone wanting to coat someone else in their bodily fluids. Do people who do it get a sexual kick out of it? I would imagine some do.

    But does it belittle the experience of a victim of sexual assault to say the two things are the same?

    Reading before it went indie. I doubt it's beer in them bottles. Slightly incongruous slogan on the bloke's jacket. :D

    I agree it's a fucking horrible thing to happen to anyone, but the notion that it's a sexual assault is ridiculous, because it's patently obvious that the idiot throwing the bottle into a crowd is going to have no idea where it's going to land.

    I can remember cowering under my jacket as the bottles flew at my first Reading.

    You can "imagine" what you want but they aren't maliciously pouring their urine over children but rather lobbing it at the stage in a reckless manner.

    As someone who has sexually assaulted teenage girls let me assure you that it is much worse for them than having a bottle of piss thrown at them (I did that as well but that just got me contempt of court which was only 6 months added onto my 3 years for assault)

    I have to question the people who are intent on sexualising every act.

    Breast feeding in public... you do it for the sexual attention and all that kind of moronic shit.

    Eh? Do sexual things not happen at festivals? I just figured maybe that is part of the kick. Just wondering really.

    Is that what would stop it being a sexual assault? The lack of a specific intended victim? What then if it is directed at the band as in your thread title?

    I know it sounds bad, but it was different in my case because she was totally asking for it!
