So I came across this link a few days ago, but I’ve been battling an up and coming sickness, so I haven’t had the right words for a proper retort. Now it breaks down the type of guys to avoid at conventions.
Here’s an excerpt for #3, Mr. Grab-Hands:
3. Mr. Grab-Hands
This guy thinks that personal boundaries are left at the con’s door. He’ll do anything to put his hand below the level of decency and this level usually ranges mid-back to thigh. He is of the opinion that any exposed skin is fair game. And that female friend of yours you use for The Buddy System? He’ll casually suggest that you kiss her for the picture.
I have an ex-girlfriend who has fallen prey to that guy. Now I do claim to be a “costume enthusiast”, but I wouldn’t say it’s a “problem”. Nor do I think I’m a guy who should be avoided, then again I’m a bit biased. Also, #6 cracked me up, “the Name-Dropper”. Though, sometimes that guy who you think doesn’t know Mark Waid, Ron Marz, Ted Naifeh, or Big Boi from OutKast and actually does…try not to be embarassed too much now when you try to call him out on it.
In addition to the “fangirl invasion“, should there be a list of types of girls to avoid at cons?
Why can’t we all just get along?
