It is like it reads, I think this is pretty terrible of them for so many reasons, just let people cosplay what they want. Like, sorry if you're so insecure about your sexuality that a guy dressing up as a girl keeps you up at night.

"It is worth noting that female-to-male cosplay is perfectly fine."

I'd also go to say this is sexist and homophobic as shit. Tells men they can't engage in feminine wear and that female cosplay is primarily to look sexy for men, not for the cosplayer to have fun.

What do you guys think?

Honestly, F*k that rule. There should totally be a massive group of male crossplayers just to stick it to them

Actually they decided to allow it again, as long as it's nothing too revealing.
Rumor has it they were worried about crossdressing dudes going into girls changing rooms.

Nvm, not even a rumor it literally says please hand in identification before using changing rooms and toilets.

Allowing it is a lot less dumb than not allowing it.

Yes but the reasons they even thought to not allow it was really dumb and the rules they replaced it with are also extremely dumb.

Some people never fail to make my day. The level of ridiculousness makes this funny, in a twisted way. It's sad, yet hilarious.

I mean, the rules they released it with apply to both male and female cosplayers so it's not that dumb. And the reasons they have don't really matter now since they took it back, and I'm not going to judge people for changing their stance on it.

Good.
If SJWs hadn't turned a mental illness into an 'identity' this rule probably never would've been made.

Hmm, I heard about how you're not allowed to come in cosplay though, so if you come out of the male changing room in crossplay they'd tell you to go back in. I guess some is better than none but it's still more or less the same thing, yeah I don't particularly like the obligatory purposefully bad crossplay people that show up at every con but hey, people dress how they want, not to please me.

I can understand needing IDs since this is Japan we're talking about, and they have a major Peeping Tom problem.
