SORT BY Relevancy
in Pop Culture
Literally "Costume Play." Dressing up and pretending to be a fictional character (usually a sci-fi, comic book, or anime character).
(usage) There are anime cosplay conventions around the world.
“Costumes are not consent. It’s a phrase you may be hearing a lot lately, and one we need to keep talking about. In the past few weeks, the internet has exploded with women speaking up about the treatment we receive at conventions and online. This isn’t a new problem that has suddenly presented itself. The issues have always been there. What is happening now is we finally feel we are allowed to speak up, that doing so will not result in us being ostracized from our community – because we are now acting as a community, a support structure, to create a safe environment for all costumers and convention goers.”

Yes, we are talking about Comic con and the like, and the amount of harassment dished out to women ( and sometimes men) who enjoy dressing up as their favourite character and joining other like minded fans at conventions. Somehow, dressing as your favourite comic book character has been misconstrued as a license for fans to paw and grope these women while treating them like sexual objects.
Today we will be talking to Sam Maggs weekend editor of the online publication themarysue.com about the problems cosplayers face at these conventions, and how we can raise awareness.

IN MY UNDERSTANDING, THE NFL COMMITEE APPROVED BEYONCE'S ROUTINE, SO SHOULD AMERICA BLAME THE NFL AND CBS FOR THE SO-CALLED OFFENSIVE SHOW? BUT THE LGBT THEME WAS "NOT" OFFENSIVE?
8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
9 For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.
10 My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.
11 If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:
12 Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:
13 We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:
14 Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:
15 My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:
16 For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.
17 Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.
18 And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives.
19 So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.

SALLIE O. ELKORDY FOR MAYOR,
January started out as “Cervical Cancer Awareness Month” per Resolution 531 put forth by the NYC City Council last year (for the purpose of promoting the HPV Vaccine according to the HuffPost). In 2015 I warned the City Council about the new Gardasil 9; the dangers of the regular version of Gardasil and even secured Norma Erickson of Sanevax.org (the authoritative source) to advise them. Although not ignored, the warning presented was. Two resolutions passed: the one I mentioned and another, in support of a State level bill for the administration of STD vaccines (including the HPV vaccine) without parental consent. This bill may be voted on in 2016 in NY State, as well as another State bill to add the HPV vaccine to the schedule in order for children to attend school.
It seemed clear that PUSHBACK was necessary, so I set out to interview Gardasil Victims and their families to educate our legislators and as a warning to parents and young women (and now men) being offered this vaccine. Freda Birrell, also of Sanevax.org provided the introductions that readily facilitated this effort. The multiple interviews below are the result of these introductions and the monthly stand I take at City Hall to bring attention to vaccine injury and death was made relevant for January through their inclusion:

Ex Pilot Mr Lenoard Lawrence Poisoned Air Pilot https://lenlawrence.wordpress.com/
Len was held captive in the United Kingdom by the Official Solicitor to the High Court for almost eighteen months and medicated to the extent that he was incapable of legal discussion and understanding. During which time most of his assets were disposed of, by Solicitors and Barristers, whilst generating revenue for themselves, all without Len’s knowledge and consent.
Finally, without the knowledge of the Official Solicitor, the British Airline Pilots Association directed Len to Professor Gordon Turnbull, FRCP FRCPsych (Psychiatric adviser to the United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority) who reviewed the evidence, stopped all medication and Len was referred to Neurologists for brain damage assessment. Thereafter Len received specialist toxicology treatment for poisoning by Organophosphates with additional support from the Royal British Legion, SAFFA and the Royal Naval Benevolent Trust.
