Make Penguicon Great Again
Jay Maynard

The fact that you can describe “rape culture” as a “silly idea” pretty much invalidates everything else you’re saying here. It’s sad you don’t feel safe or welcome, but at the same time I was thrilled to see so many more people of color, people with disabilities, and panels with content that didn’t implicitly scream “straight white libertarian dudes only!” at this con. I think the issue is that you may be feeling threatened because the world doesn’t revolve around people like you anymore — and truly sympathize that that must suck. At the same time, I was subjected to enough sexual harassment at PenguiCon in the past that the con’s new anti-harassment policy is a breath of past-due fresh air.
