Not gonna click on pajamas media, but guessing that no bro-types were allowed. Good call.

Well did you submit one with the appropriate filing date? And why "WHITE" males.
I think that goes against the con's charter and rules to exclude other races.

And OMG TRIGGERED SNOW FLAKE WHITE MALE.

I mean they should have done it...and have such tracks and information and engaging events such as:

How many chopsticks can you hold in your titty boob fat?
Tip of the day: Pressure wash your computer chair every 3 months at the drive through car wash.
Pron Hub Filters at work and how to get around them
Fedoras...a tell or still a fashion statement.
Just how long those taco bell packets are good for and what to do with them with Raman.
Waddling Seductively
Bathing...an option or an imposition .

My friend and her husband were there this weekend. They have no idea what the hell this article is even referring to.
 
2018-03-07 02:05:23 AM  
Of course. That's pretty much the only people who go to cons. Basement dwelling virgins, but straight.

Do not get me started on con panels.  I had friends that tried convincing me to do a con panel about surviving a con, with such highlights as "drink a bottle of Gatorade and 2 bottles of water a day to keep hydrated" and the ever popular "use the complimentary soap, shampoo, and conditioner.  In fact, ask for more"

We used to host the "consuite" at local con. And did quite well at it...had the 'big book of stuff' etc.
And one year the 'lady' hosting the con decided another lady would be hosting the con...so informed us we wouldn't be needed.
Except 2 FARKEN WEEKS BEFORE THE CON THAT FRIEND BACKED OUT AND THEY CAME CRAWLING TO US TO MAKE IT RIGHT.

And at the last moment 2 weeks mind you...get the free potato chips, and ads in the handout..and costco stuff and tables and crap etc.
And despite all that we did make it right. I whipped up a dozen or so decorations.
Got people to make food...crockpot chili walking tacos.

But the best...sensitivity thing...down stairs at the same hotel...there was a gay mardis gras crew thing going on that had a buffet and drag queens. And as it wound down...we got the food.
And the drag queens.
One..."Liberty Bell" who looked like a plastic version of "madam" from Mandum and Wayland. ..and the Joker from the original batman. Came up to watch Rocky Horror.
She was not impressed. Because she was pretty much getting any attention...like she was just 'normal' there.
But there was a ton of buffet food we organized to be brought up...and there was much rejoicing.
 
2018-03-07 02:54:43 AM  
Oh...the first one...the one with food etc. Was one we just hosted as sign up thing

it was the second one...not mentioned in the above story where they shunned us and then begged us to come back this was a the 'other con' at a crappy place near the airport. And the last con that con had as it went bankrupt and folded that year.
 
2018-03-07 02:58:15 AM  
Um, it's almost nothing but straight white males, subby. I don't understand a word of this story.

"ALL the mixers"

Lists 4.

Shockingly it took her to near the end of the article to single out "the Left", that ubiquitous catch-all term one can use to describe anyone with whom they do not agree.

/ Always makes me laugh when I call them on disliking progressive since "progressive" makes them angry.

"I'm disappointed that they choose to be divisive in an industry that has seen enough divisiveness as it is," the source said. "We are not our race or gender or sexuality. Aren't we a sum of our parts, or as MLK noted so famously, isn't it the content of our character that should be what counts?"

I see three events listed, one on each of 3 of the 4 days of the con (over the duration of the con, there are some 36 Meetup events).

...and of those, I see nothing that those 3 events are barring anyone, just that they have specific focuses that are about not-white-men.

So, suck it?  Yes, suck it.

They essentially take the attitude that "the left" is to be blamed for all the bad things they themselves do.
In another thread, I saw one of our Fark Righties state, with a straight face, that Nazis only exist as a response to the Leftist Identity politics of the sixties.

Maybe because it's the straight white males seeing those mixers and finding out they're not exactly as straight as they thought?

Nah. Too different. Much threatening to comfort zone. Couldn't be.

It's not that they weren't allowed.  It's that they were not the center of attention.  Which hurts their feelings.  Bunch of conservative crybabies.

Yeah, a quick check on the site shows these mixers aren't official, and there are plenty of other get-together events that don't exclude anybody. Their complaint is that there apparently is no specific mixer targeting white straight males.

Fake news, as usual from the specialists at fake news.

It's like the "black lives matter" complaint: "What, you're saying that white lives don't matter??"

And

"Happy Holidays!"
"OMG! War on Christmas!"

For some reason, they view the inclusion of others as an exclusion of them.

Really, it's that they fear the 'attack' on their power; they are supposed to be in control, and they sure as shot don't wanna share it.

We want the power, but not the responsibility. We want to decide, but not take blame. Privatize profit, socialize loss. Etc.

Well, yeah, if you throw a party with those requirements you get called a Nazi or KKK or some shiat like that and then someone will sue because they've been excluded even though three doors down there's an all black guy party over Black Panther and a Chinese only party over in Chinatown that both get passes on race discrimination because they're minorities and are therefore unable to discriminate.

It must be horrible having 3 out of 300 events not specifically catered to you. As one heterosexual white male to another, all I have to say to the author is suck it up buttercup. Your whining is making the rest of us look bad.
