When I was a freshman, my sister was in eighth grade. There was a boy in two of her periods who would ask her out every single day. (Third and seventh period, if I remember correctly.) All day during third and seventh she would repeatedly tell him no. She didn’t beat around the bush, she didn’t lie and say she was taken—she just said no.

One day, in third period, after being rejected several times, he said; “I have a gun in my locker. If you don’t say yes, I am going to shoot you in seventh.”

As you may remember, we asked Emerald City Comicon attendees to fill out a survey after this year’s show, to get a better idea of what worked, what didn’t, and who are attendees are. The majority of the data we received will remain private to our team, but we thought this piece of information was quite interesting and worth of sharing.
In response to the question, “what is your gender?”, with a blank text box to fill in, we received a wide variety of answers. When we compile the data, these are the results:
52% of respondents referred to themselves as female (examples of terminology include: “cis female”, “female”, “female identifying” “girlthing”, “lady”, “Wonder Woman”)
46% of respondents referred to themselves as male (examples of terminology include: “cis male”, “boy”, “dood”, “I’m a MAN!”, “male”, “man?”)
2% of respondents referred to themselves in non-binary terms (examples of terminology include: “agender”, “genderfluid”, “genderqueer”, “non-binary”, “Is Bad-Ass a gender?”, “Cthulhu”, “a nebulous glow cloud”)
We can’t break down the responses further without risking a breach of privacy, but the responses we did receive were quite illuminating, and helpful in providing us with a more accurate view of our attendees.
So thank you for filling out the survey, and being honest with us about how you identify your gender. We will do our best to make sure every Emerald City Comicon attendee feels welcome at our convention, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation.

Hey, you know how girls just aren’t comic book fans? I mean, obviously, the only comic book fans are cisgender heterosexual white men between the ages of 18-35, right?
Oh, wait … men aren’t even in the majority. Women and feminine-identified people are the clear majority, and then you add in non-binary people and 54% of attendees are NOT MEN. Gosh how many of those attendees might not be cisgender and/or heterosexual? Could it be that the entitled white men who shout down any other voices and DEMAND that comic book companies cater to their every need and desire are not the most important or even the most numerous voices in the fandom? Maybe, just maybe, their screaming is coming from them sensing that.

My family was just talking the other day about the extent to which the Fake Geek Girl meme might be a pushback against the fact that men are both less than 50% of gamers and less than 50% of the people at major comic cons.

yup, they don’t want anyone finding out they’re in the minority so they a) lie about the numbers and b) try to invalidate us
watch out, boys, someday soon they’re gonna figure this out and start catering to US

your gay friends are all talking shit behind your back 100%

Yeah, you support them all the way.. We’ll most of the way.. We’ll some of the way.. Clearly not as far as marriage.. Cause marriage ain’t for gays.. Or something

You hear so many of these people say, “I have a lot of gay friends but don’t believe in same sex marriage”, but you never hear gay people say “I’ve lots of friends who think it should be illegal for me to marry the person I love”.

So, here’s a PSA for everyone who is against marriage equality, but thinks they have gay friends. You probably don’t. What you have are gay acquaintances who have learned to quietly put up with your bullshit because it’s the path of least resistance and they just don’t have the energy to “My Fair Lady” your ass into being a decent human being.

The American Hogwarts Houses

Look at your school of witchcraft and wizardry. Now look at mine. Now yours. Now back to mine. Sadly, your school is not mine, but if you all got off your broomsticks and started using a real sorcerer’s deodorant, it could smell like mine. Abracadabra! I’m a horse.

Good. Night. I’m done.

Did you really think that flimsy wire cage would contain his laser eyes? Consider yourself lucky he didn’t melt you instead.

True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.

That’s fucking bullshit! Honestly, people like this make me hate who I am, because I’m the same race. I’m disgusted with these kind of people.

YOU’VE GOT TO BE FUCKING SHITTING ME.  HE USED DEPRESSION AS A FUCKING EXCUSE TO GET OUT OF TROUBLE?!  HOW DID HE GET AWAY WITH THAT?  HOW THE FUCK????
PEOPLE LIKE THIS MAKE EVERYONE ELSE LOOK STUPID.  DEPRESSION IS A REAL ISSUE, AND WHO FUCKING GIVES A FLYING RAT’S ASS IF YOU’RE ‘DEPRESSED’ BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE CALLING YOU OUT FOR YOUR BULLSHIT.  THAT’S NOT DEPRESSION.  THAT IS NOT FUCKING DEPRESSION.
THAT’S A GODDAMNED LIE.
