Love also emailed Fan Expo and said the reply she received was “inadequate” and felt like a complete brush off. Pirko had a more worrying response:
They stated that their attendees and their team were adults, and it was all a bit of fun that people wouldn’t take seriously. A direct quote from the email ’We thought about clarifying that cuddles must come with consent, but we thought if we’re always putting the rules in front of the fun – well that hurts the spirit of Fan Expo as much as the people that try to abuse our rules.” They also stated that they hadn’t gotten around to putting their harassment policy up yet, but had made it a priority.
Reminding people not to harass other attendees only makes the convention less “fun” for those who were inclined to harass in the first place. For everyone else, it reassures them they can have real fun in a safe environment with fellow fans.
This (sadly) doesn’t surprise me after fanexpo Vancouver ignored our concerns about a number of problematic tweets from the weekend re: play boy energy drink being a sponsor.
emeraldcitycomicon you keep on rocking
I’m rewatching Avatar: the Last Airbender from the beginning
And one of the links I’m using is from Nick.com, where they put in fun facts about the characters and the voice actors and stuff into the episode
I’m watching “The Warriors of Kyoshi,” and there’s this scene where Zuko goes, “nice try, Avatar, but these little girls can’t save you!”
And this is the fun fact the writers put in:
What if Santa’s elves are like the ones in Lord of the Rings?
"legolas what do your elf eyes see?"
"TIMMY THOMPSON FROM ST. JOHN’S JUST STUCK GUM IN HIS SISTERS HAIR"
my love for the show Elementary is fierce, guys.
It’s just so good, so rich, with such awesome characters.
(this week, at least).
