Once a woman decides she wants to dress up as a character, or decides that shes going to wear an awesome outfit even though shes heavier than what society says should be acceptable, or, heaven forbid, decides to speak up on nerd topics, she.I assume I passed?Women at the other end of the spectrum, who dont meet the standards of nerdy attractiveness set by the menfolk, are ignored entirely.I did that because I knew the moment I walked in that it wasnt the kind of con I wanted to wear my Ms Marvel costume.We in the nerd community have a tendency to make fun of the fashionable people or the cool kids.Or lose all desire to attend *any* cons.But only interesting within the narrow margins of what white male geeks consider real geekdom.I cant do anything to fix.
