Comic Convention Misogyny

by Salvatore Pane

“We as a geek community have some of the most rampant sexism and misogyny I have ever seen. Women in cosplay are treated as pieces of meat, on display to satisfy a man’s fantasy of that character. We are without personality or interests, and there’s no way people will believe that we actually know ANYTHING about the character we’re dressed up as.”

–Moly McIsaac in The Geeky Peacock
