TAM happened. Because I can’t afford to go to Vegas, can’t afford TAM, don’t particularly like lots of people and heat, and don’t find Vegas particularly fun, I didn’t go.

And I’m damn glad I didn’t.

First Harriet Hall showed up wearing a T-shirt that effectively took a very cheap shot at the Skepchicks. When Skepchick Surly Amy took issue, she found herself accosted by some anti-harassment con staff who could far more accurately be described as the thought police from Oceania even though Amy was treated rather tamely.
Then we find out that she wasn’t the only one, and regular attendees didn’t get the Good Cops.
This all comes after the debacle where DJ Grothe said that the problem was complaints of harassment, not harassment itself.
Chew on it. Personally, I think this reeks.

    Less privileged,whining assholes to deal with. Hopefully the skepchicks will follow suit so the stench of people just fishing to cause drama can leave that noble event,.

      Noble? With that kind of harassment policy? You’ve got to be fucking shitting me. You’re telling me that a harassment policy that is enforced by putting the victims in the Ministry of Love is part of a noble event?

      I do not think that word means what you think it means.
