Cosplay is not Consent campaigns are great for events like Dragon*Con and CONvergence, but the kind of problems at this con were different and not easily addressed through something like that.No one touched me, or even made inappropriate come-ons.

If you don’t fit that happy medium of “kinda hot, but not hot enough that you know you don’t have to sleep with me”, you’re either a non-entity, or a walking Barbie and treated as such. It is just an extension of the same in-group presentation policing that every aspect of society does.No one groped me, cornered me, made me feel like I was in danger.I never worried about walking the halls alone, even late at night, costume or not.Dragon*Con isn’t perfect, and in most ways, is a much less safe convention for a woman.However, at Dragon*Con, I am accepted as a costumer.
