Theyve always been there.
The staff, the volunteers, the program participants, even the people working the tables for other events were all wonderful.
Convention space has never been a space that was solely the domain of men.
We in the nerd community have a tendency to make fun of the fashionable people or the cool kids.Not the sleek little work-appropriate but still sexy jewel tone tunics from the new movie, but the flared, strangely-constructed, unapologetically teal and chartreuse polyester cheerleader dresses that fit perfectly with the (now) retrofuturistic vibe of the original show.I could wear anything I want there and I wouldnt come to any legal form of harm.This was my second year going to this con, and my second year costuming there.And yes, I get tired of fighting.Mer än 90 av våra användare rekommenderar Refunder till andra med toppbetyget.8 av 10 på Trustpilot.If other women are feeling the same way I do, they might be turned off from that con entirely.To be fair, it was a little short.The history of geekdom is not a history of men, its a history of invisible women.
So if I can speak out a little bit and make sure that other women, who dont have the space to safely challenge the microaggressions, might stick around and develop their own support network, I will challenge.
Part of the fascination on social media with watching Abercrombie and Fitchs fall from grace seemed to be a form of schadenfreude, against the pretty people who had made our lives hell in high school/college/life and who so proudly wore that brand as a mark.
Surrounded by 40 skeptics, costumers and science communicators who have had a little too much bourbon, and who fully embrace my right to be there.
And by screen accurate I mean short.I was at Balticon, a great science fiction convention that leans more to the literary side than the ones that are normally in my wheelhouse.I assume I passed?The ones who dress alike and spend their lives being sheep to the newest styles.Every place I go will not be a safe space, but the people around me make it one for.Often in ways that are neither obvious nor actionable.I was dressed in a science officer costume from Star Trek: The Original Series.Se filmen om hur Refunder fungerar.Often in ways that are extremely mild until they pile up interaction after interaction, hour after hour, day after day.Yes, Im a good rabattkod hem och villamässan costumer, and I look good in my costumes, but at the end of the day, Im another nerd geeking out like crazy over her favorite subjects.
