There have always been women objecting to warrior women on the covers of books and magazines and protesting the misogynistic habits of male writers who enjoy pinching and groping.
If other women are rabatt booking feeling the same way I do, they might be turned off from that con entirely.
These things arent really things a convention graviditetskollen rabattkod can control, except through patient modeling of appropriate behavior, and reaching out to a more diverse audience.
Honey, your skirt is a little short.The ones who dress alike and spend their lives being sheep to the newest styles.Part of the fascination on social media with watching Abercrombie and Fitchs fall from grace seemed to be a form of schadenfreude, against the pretty people who had made our lives hell in high school/college/life and who so proudly wore that brand as a mark.Dragon*Con isnt perfect, and in most ways, is a much less safe convention for a woman.But we do the exact same policing to our own that we see in mainstream society.The story of the woman dealing with comments about her costume is the same story as the girl who walks into a comic shop, only to have all of the denizens come to a complete stop and stare angrily at her.But only interesting within the narrow margins of what white male geeks consider real geekdom.
I wore that outfit for all of Saturday, became extremely annoyed with the response I was getting and then dressed in normal clothes on Sunday.
That was the first comment.
A constant flow of women leaning in and stage whispering in mock-concern about how short my skirt was.At a convention like Dragon*Con, or CONvergence, or Pandoracon, in costume I feel like Im part of the convention crowd.If you dont fit that happy medium of kinda hot, but not hot enough that you know you dont have to sleep with me, youre either a non-entity, or a walking Barbie and treated as such.At this point I could easily throw my hands up in defeat and say Its always been like that.I wouldnt want to go against the admiralty.But thats not going to fix anything.
Challenge the male gaze both metaphorically and literally.
Or lose all desire to attend *any* cons.
