I've a semi-rare congenital disorder people commonly call "tone deafness". This is often misattributed to people who simply have bad rhythm or cannot sing. The reality however is that "tone deafness" aka amusia, in my case, makes it extremely difficult to filter out noise and I also have no real emotional response to music. I don't go to concerts because the music is lost on me and the noise means I cannot think straight.

I say all this to make the point: Even I would not be such a bitch-snowflake about going to a game.

I've got the opposite issue: after a lifetime of working in various aspects of the "music"/"entertainment" industry, I have a strong loathing/visceral reaction to most commercial/top 40 music. The "normal" music that "normal" people listen to sounds like sheet-metal in a table-saw to me. The worst of it is the "ear-worms," snippets of uninvited/unwanted songs that get stuck in my head for days/weeks. It is to the point that I don't even want to hear music I like anymore.

But I already have tickets for the Ted Nugent tour this fall. I wouldn't miss that, even though the rest of the music I hear that night is likely to be bad for my blood-pressure.

I can't imagine the level of entitlement that would demand "safe spaces" for easily-offended snowflakes who choose to go to a sportsball game or concert, much less the pandering of providing that coddling cry-closet. Anyone who goes to an event of that nature should expect large crowds and noise, but that's the logical way of looking at it. In this case, we're dealing with attention-seeking crybullies desperate to order other people around to cater to their whims, no matter how illogical their demands.

Reminds me of a boss I once had. The guy would completely flip out if anybody brought up that "Baby Shark" song.

If that guy has small kids, I can easily see it. My toddler niece was hooked on that song, so I had stay away for a few weeks.

That's called "hipster-itis". Has nothing to do with anything resembling musical taste/appreciation and every thing to do with wanting to be a special snowflake who knows the "real music"

My point was: after working in the "music"/"entertainment" industry for decades, the endless repetitive "product" can become the stuff of nightmares. A more common example might be a person who works in a pizza restaurant for most of their life, and never again wants to see pizza or anything resembling Italian food. As with any job someone might do for 40-50 years, some people become numb to the "product," others develop an intense aversion.

> tl;dr It's the "familiarity breeds contempt" concept.

I've got autism and get overstimulated sometimes when things get super loud unexpectedly. Like a band randomly showing up and playing at a bar.

But NASCAR and sports games I know what I'm getting into beforehand and never once have I had an issue there or in similar situations. These people are just fucking pussies.

I teach martial arts to a young girl who has problems with loud noise.

I don't fucking care about her sensory sensitive neurosis. But! I do care about her future.

I will bring society a female version of The Accountant.

NewAnon5522 19 points ago +19 / -0

Honestly that isn't an option now days. A lot of times you walk out you are out. I went to cross a line to toss a cigarette in an ash tray one time and a security chump told me if I walked past the plastic chain I was out of the venue. He told me to do what everyone else was doing and put the cigarette out in the garden in the middle full of mulch.

Lapstrake 11 points ago +12 / -1

Hmm, thanks for the info. I'm not a sportsball person so I didn't know you couldn't exit and re-enter. I guess when you charge $11 for a bud light they don't want people coming and going like that.

NewAnon5522 6 points ago +7 / -1

This was a concert but same level of retard security. I honestly think a small quiet spot that can be used for no more than 5 mins or so at some of these venues is a good idea. Calling it a safe space and what not is annoying. But if you have ever been at a football game and have a work issue come up where you need 5 minutes of uninterrupted silence to solve the issue you can see the value in this.

I was once at a football game and one of our clients servers went down. There were like three of us there making calls typing things on our phone to see where we could get someone to go hit the reset. There was talk for a few minutes about leaving after just getting there till one of our guys not there got it reset. I definitely would have liked a small spot away from cheering and jeering of the game.

Lapstrake 6 points ago +7 / -1

As far as I can tell, it doesn't even have a door. I'm sorry, but it is just silly. You don't need this. It looks to me like it doesn't do anything but pander to people's feelings. It is a safe space and it is stupid.

becky21k1 -3 points ago +3 / -6

It's because they have to screen everyone to get into these places now. You go through the metal detector, they pat you down. Security has to assume you hid a knife or some shit in the ashtray. So once you're in you don't get out.

The last concert I went to was pre-pandemic and I had to toss two plastic boxcutters because I'd forgotten I even had them in a pocket.

I have an autistic kid and we fully expect to leave in the middle of a game or whatever if he can't handle it. You're not going to take him to a "sensory refuge" and take him back in for more torture. Maybe libtards do that, but seems pretty sadistic me.

Sometimes you can't predict when the noise will bother you and you'd like to at least try to enjoy things normally like everyone else.

An example from my life.

Hungover as sin before a college football game. But I had tickets and tried to hair of the dog my way through it. Which just didnt last. I would have killed for a quiet spot. Not going wasnt an option and I was in serious pain.

I would have been kicked out of it though for passing out. Really its gonna be a full time job actually maintaining the space for what it is intended to be for.

But they would never have a hangover recovery bunk at sporting venues. Got a crying room tho

Filo76 20 points ago +20 / -0

I don’t like loud places. Concerts. Bars. Stadiums. Etc. they give me anxiety because I can’t process all the noise.

So I just DONT GO to those places.

All I ask is a little understanding when friends ask me to go to those places. I don’t demand my own little safe zone. It’s not practical.

coolhandcuke 5 points ago +5 / -0

Same. Sometimes in the movie theater, a trailer will be so loud, I plug my ears temporarily. My mom does this, too. But I don't need a safe space.

It’s weird cause for me I’m selective about what loud noises I can handle. Concerts? I’m good, I love music. Bars/parties with loud drunk people screaming? No, I’m gonna leave. Fireworks right near me taking off? Sure, I’ll watch. Doesn’t bug me. The sound of a vacuum cleaner? NO, make it stop!!

1
independentbystander 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yes, and letting "protestors" screech in the libraries.

"Critical Theory" (and its Current Year demon spawn "Critical Race Theory") dictates that all traditions be attacked, definitions of words be reversed, customs be subverted. Normalcy is seen as something to be torn down and replaced with the opposite, while those who attempt to protect normalcy and polite society are slandered as "normalizing racism and white supremacy" when we are merely following the normal customs of polite society, some of which have been normal for centuries or longer.

This is why we so often see BLM/Leftist/SJW screechers storming businesses, political proceedings, church services, and other gatherings where polite and respectful behavior is normally expected. It's also why we hear so many ludicrous whims like "Bad is Good," "Thin is no longer in, Fat Is Where It's At," "Men can have babies too," "Abortion is essential wymyns' healthcare granted by the Constitution" etc etc. As attention-seeking narcissists who demand that reality conform to their illogical selfish desires, the Tolerant Left will not put up with any display of normalcy.

It's a trap.

Shaped just like an air transportable shipping container.

The people sit in it, look at the stars, breath in the sleeping gas, the front has a door that closes over, they wheel the container away onto a waiting cargo 747.

The person wakes up in a Saudi dungeon, or a Chinese organ taking facility.

If you have sensory issues, you probably should stay away from stadiums with 50000 screaming fans and music cranked to 100 decibels. Or you can be an idiot.

I know sensory overload is a problem with people who are on the autistic spectrum. And there’s an easy solution to that- don’t go to events or places that you know you can’t handle. Or buy nice soundproof headphones and wear those. But you can’t expect the world to make safe spaces for you.

I think this is pretty cool for families with autistic children. My nephew would greatly benefit from this if he were there. Some things I can support. But I don’t understand why some adults feel the need lol. Dudes 3

Why would you even go to a live game if you have "sensory needs" that make you unable to handle large crowds and loud noises? Just stay home and watch the game on television. What useless fucking shit.

I'm on the spectrum. While I don't particularly have this sort of sensory issue, I can relate. Mine is more physical. Like, a wristwatch is my max simulation. And I can't stand my wife breathing on the back of my neck at night. It just overloads my circuits.

This isn't a safe space. I can appreciate this. Low effort, but means a lot to a certain subset of the population.
