Calling the Cops on Conventions

Donna Barr has posted an item on her blog that I think is very important.  Why? Because more and more I hear female cosplayers and women attending US conventions report sexual harassment.  The organisers of events rarely even act when perpetrators are reported.

A woman wearing a comic or fantasy related costume to an event is NOT shouting out -"Hey, I'm a slu come and abuse me!"  I've heard of no incidents in the UK but cosplayers and fan boy geeks ought to read Donna's posting!

  1. I've been involved with Manchester's PLAY Expo for the last few years, which involves cosplay, and we've had one minor incident involving a guy with a camera following the girls around and trying to get upskirt shots and whatever. We gave him a couple of warnings before ejecting him. Not bad though for an event that has over two thousand people a day attending.

    Not that I'm denying it's a problem, just that it seems a lot more serious in America.
