The truth is that we talk a lot about freedom and being free to be ourselves but then, in front of a little question, it sounds evident that freedom ends where the "SUPPOSED NORMALITY" of those considered "good normal people" strikes to our fetish which we hide in any possible way just to be NORMAL in the eyes of the others. This means that us as first consider ourselves "odd people" or at least we are scared as death about what a stranger coud say about us, otherwise this discussion wouldn't have started! ... think about that the next time someone says you're living in the land of the free... because you're freedom is so restricted that you can't even blow up a balloon and burst it without having to justify yourself and give explanation about that just because you're an adult dealing with something that "the unwritten rules" of the "good normal people" consider that to be somthing acceptable from children but not from adults! This applies to soo many other innocent, harmless things that we do but we hide not to be pushed aside by the rest of the society, by those considered "good normal people" and the really sad and weird thing is that there are countries in the world where it is considered "normal" and it is commonly accepted that people can carry a gun (which is made with the only and main purpose of hutring, damaging and killing) but it's considered ABNORMAL to play with a totally harmless ballon unless you're a child... and that is disgusting! ��������

Also the fear of becoming a societal outcast is easily and often exploited as a means of controlling large groups of people.

Often a fiction created by inappropriate application of statistics and the consensus bias.

What is 'normal'? It is hard to say, but I think we are all better off with 'normal' being a term that is not precisely defined.

When it comes to explaining sudden bangs from balloon popping I cannot really see what this has to do with 'freedom'. Those who ask what excuses would be good or effective or whatever do this, because they feel the need for giving an explanation to others, who might ask about what happened. Telling them that they don't need to explain anything is not helpful. The feel the way they do, and that's it. I btw also feel that - if asked - I need to give some 'acceptable' (meaning non-balloon related and definitely not fetish related) answer. It is actually extremely rare that people ask - or probably even wonder - about the bangs from balloon popping, but that might be because I don't pop that many balloons at a time. The very few times I have been asked about it I just said "I don't know" or "I think I heard it too, but I didn't think more about it" - that sort of thing.

I do have kind of a rule of living, that might be worthwhile considering though: Don't worry so much about possible problems. Most worries end up not materialising. Transferred to this with bangs from balloon pops maybe simply don't worry about it, before it actually happens and somebody ask you about it. If you are asked then just say whatever comes to mind: "I don't know", "We had a party and went a little wild on balloons", "I found a bag of balloons and went childish" - anything will do. Afterwards you can start to figure out what to do next time the same person ask again. However chances are that you will never come to 'afterwards', - nobody will ever ask.

Bear in mind though that I live in a country with very strict laws for guns, so people here do not think 'shooting!!!' whenever they hear a bang.

Thank you for reading my posting.

Sincerely
Susie

I think a gun pop and a balloon pop sound totally different anyway. But I guess the layman might sometimes not be able to differentiate.

What most people do... that's the way people consider a thing to be normal... they look at other people and consider normal everything that is done by most people this is why what it is normal in the US, living to work for instance, is absolutely abnormal here in Italy and generally in Europe where most people consider normal work for living... the exact opposite. So the perception of normality changes based on where you are and the general cultural values of the people living there so if with your question you wanted to say that there is no normality, you are wrong... normality is ALWAYS what most people in a place do and it is totally independent from the general value of what they do... it doesn't matter if what they do is "generally" considered good or bad, as far as most people do it than it is normal. Carrying guns in Italy and in general in Europe is not Normal but it is absolutely normal in the USA even if, here in Europe it is considered so bad to the point of being evil... so, again, normality exists.. it varies depending on where you go and the culture of the people living in that place. For us universal Healthcare is great and we have it because we belive in social support in the US all of this is seen as Evil because socialism is considered Evil... and it's not considered a problem that many people could die because they cannot afford to go to the doctor or to the hospital or call an ambulance... opposite views that makes one thing normal in a place but totally unacceptable in another and this apply also to looners, we will never be considered normal because most people do not see balloons the way we do and there's nothing we can do about that!

I mostly agree. There some loons that are incredible loud when they go. Those are typically the bigger loons with thick latex blown up tightly. In that case, it could be confused with a gunshot. On the other hand, some small caliber firearms are fairly quiet (for a gun) depending on the muzzle attachments used, barrel type, etc. So I think there's some overlap in decibel levels of big thick tightly blown balloons and smaller caliber firearms. I'll just need to avoid blowing big thick tight loons until I'm properly isolated.

There's also the issue (that you mentioned) of the uneducated ear mistaking a loud loon pop with a gunshot. I think that's the bigger problem here.

I'd have to say this is my biggest fear with the fetish. My friend group isn't very large, and if any found out, that news would likely spread quickly. I don't know what my family would think (I know they wouldn't like it). When I lived with my family, there would be times when I played with loons (in my younger years). The loons would pop with people in the house and a few times my family would ask questions. Typically not questions directly at me, more like "what was that? did you hear that?"
