Cosplay Is Not Consent

Posted in Society on September 1st, 2015

As this year’s Dragon*Con starts tomorrow and both my wives will be there working – transporting the celebrity guests to and from the airport and generally being their handlers while there – and in costume part of the time, here’s a simple PSA for you all…

Cosplay Is Not Consent
(Click to Enlarge)

Let me reiterate and expand upon this message. No matter how sexy the babes’ costumes are – and many are and will be very sexy – it is not a indication of consent.

Look But Don’t Touch

Yes! They have given consent to be looked at. Indeed, if you can exhibit some level of manners and discretion, looking is wanted and actively encouraged. In many cases, even a bit of ogling is desired – that is why they’re dressed that way and that is the sort of attention they’re seeking. And yes, they’ve tacitly consented to be photographed if and when and only if and when it doesn’t require they’re involvement in the process.

They have NOT, however, consented to any of the following behaviors:

  • Being touched in any manner;
  • Catcalled or otherwise verbally assaulted;
  • Followed around, especially into elevators and such;
  • Stopped to be photographed, either on their own or with you.

If you want to do any of the above – and some of that you shouldn’t want to do – ask politely, showing at least as much courtesy as you would show towards a woman not in costume. Play it cool and respectfully, gentlemen, and you might just be surprised at what these babes will consent to. Play it otherwise and you you might just be painfully shocked by what they, the other con goers, and convention security do by way of reprisal.

Dance, Boy!

Nigger Needs To Dance
Dance, Boy!

Truly, telling Kanye West to dance is the only proper answer to the boy’s vileness and stupidity. The filthy buck should either be taught to dance the Sam Peckinpah or, my personal preference for its sort, the Danny Deever from a tree limb.

Ineffective When Used

Posted in Politics, Society on August 30th, 2015

A shooting made the news – sort of and in a carefully controlled manner – and so the gun grabbers are once again pontificating that America needs “sensible” gun control laws…as these Liberal and Progressive domestic enemies define them.

Ineffective Gun Control Measures
Ineffective When Used As Directed

Of course, as we all know very well, each, every, and all of the gun control measures that the gun grabbers tout as reasonable and sensible restrictions, i.e., infringements, upon Americans’ Gods-given and Constitutionally enumerated 2nd Amendment rights are utterly ineffective at mitigating violence, firearm-based or otherwise.

And yes! The gun grabbers know this as well. Those “reasonable” restrictions are just milestones on the road to total confiscation.
