I still need to write my wrap up from Pantheacon. This is more important right now. I first heard about this my my roommate at P-con, a woman who was deeply affected by the events in question. There were more posts than the ones I have included below, but these are the three that, for me, stand out.
Festivals and events have a long-standing, unofficial tradition of satirical publications. Sometimes they fall short of the mark. This is one of those times.
I sincerely hope that this horribleness (is that a word? I don’t really care right now, it conveys the meaning I intend) results in the revocation of “favored nation status” at P-con for groups that can’t see far enough past their own privilege to find their compassion.
