How a woman is dressed is not an invitation to be touched, sexually harassed, or raped. If a woman walked around naked, sure she'd be looked at, but she should not expect to be touched by some random man. This is a matter of boundaries and respect for others that obviously the people who assault these women don't have.

are you making the assumption that everyone that watches anime is a geek? that everyone on crunchyroll is a geek ? I disagree , watching anime does not make you a geek and neither does being subscribed to crunchyroll , what would make you think and make this assumption out of curiosity lol?


Come, embrace the geekiness

Don't deny it, smother it with loving care

If these women are so scared about being sexually harassed, then why don't we mandate that all women should carry tasers or firearms or pepper spray in public?

Afghanistan under the Taliban had a dress code too, but women were still getting raped.


Oh we went from groping and leering to being raped at conventions?
I must have missed that....
You did not advocate a dress code but were saying we should fix it all i did was providing the most logical solution to the problem.
I also wonder if a Comic convention can be compared to Afghanistan under the Taliban.....


Maybe I went a little overboard with that analogy, but I still maintain that a dress code wouldn't do anything to fix the problem. Creepers are still gonna creep.

You are obvously right it is not an invitation and certainly should not happen.
However were is the respect for the people around you who get affected by the way you dress?

Seems fair however if what one these people on the forum said is true and this happens to males as well then theres a chance woman can use these things with bad intentions so this idea is unfortunately a fail

My wife hates people staring or pretty much any kind of attention when she is outside so she dresses were dull as to not get much attention.
Her friends hate the same things but dress rather provocative.
My wife didn't have any problems at all since she changed her dress code while her friends still do.
The men who grope are in the wrong that is no question but i just can not accept that the ones provoking them are being put so much in a victim role if they are instigators.

I think that when people are making thousands on shirts that reference Mario, The Big Bang Theory is a top-rated sitcom, and a site that charges subscription fees to stream Japanese cartoons is a viable business model, the term "geek" has progressed well beyond just a label.

I think you're convinced that you can live in a social vacuum your whole life, and that therefore you need to grow up. Or maybe you're a self-hating geek.

So your wife caved in and let other people dictate what she wears. Great example!

I'm not really sure what you mean. These women are dressing as characters from shows in an environment where this is normal. You're telling me that these women have to give in and cover them selves up because there are people out there that won't respect them? We should accommodate the perverts and make the women cover up as if it's their fault? I don't think so.

My wife was smart enough to understand that any action leads to a reaction something not many in this forum seem to be capable of

Seriously do you think before you type or are you just running on aggravation from that fact that people can't stand you shoving your opinions down their throats lol? pshh your one funny 30 year old childish arguments and yet even more assumptions your a lost cause that I can't help or debate with unfortunately I'll leave the floor to another brave soul who's willing to speak to a rock
