On this fortnight’s excursion into the world of Geek, Gen Prock is sitting in for Nick (as his Skype just absolutely refused to connect tonight). We discuss the cancellation of Tron 3, the announcement of Fallout 4, the possible remakes of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Big Trouble in Little China, as well as Guardians of the Galaxy 2 getting a script.
We also discuss the “Women in Comics” panel calamity at Denver Comic Con and the overwhelming harassment issues at MomoCon.
On Sunday we reported on how Cosplayer Luna Lanie was harassed by MomoCon staff after complaining about… well… really gross sexual harassment by other attendees on social media. Also in that article, we posted an account of another cosplayer who was inappropriately touched by MomoCon security personnel as well.
When you find yourself being sexually harassed at a convention, you usually assume that reporting it to the con’s staff is the best thing to do — that you’ll find a sympathetic ear that (at the very least) wants to make you feel better and tries to help you out.
Well that’s not exactly what happened for cosplayer Luna Lanie at MomoCon this weekend in Atlanta, GA.
You see, after being physically groped by a harasser, not only did MomoCon staff give her an initially lukewarm response, but then the con’s security staff began to repeatedly harass her and tell her that it was her own fault for wearing revealing cosplay.
