Make Penguicon Great Again

A) If you think Sci-Fi and Fantasy should be apolitical, you clearly are not a fan of nor particularly a deep reader of Sci-Fi or Fantasy. They have always been political, blatantly so, and chokablock with social commentary. If you have somehow missed this, I suggest some serious re-reading and re-watching. Start with “The Day The Earth Stood Still.” Watch some original Star Trek and dig into what Roddenberry wanted to say with his baby.

B) So, what you’re saying is that you are a ‘snowflake’ who needs ‘safe space’ ?

C) Having any issue whatsoever with the concept of consent and the promulgation of consent being important (i.e. ‘consent culture’) is just about the creepiest thing in the history of ever.
