*sigh* Just... wow.

You may already have been notified about this, but your second link to Mark Oshiro's post is a duplicate of The Geek's Guide to Disability link.

Should be fixed now, thanks.

Okay . . . I don't normally do this, but I actually wrote down the names of everybody who behaved appallingly in Mark's account, to help me remember them later on. Because if I saw any of that going on in person, my immediate reaction would be to reel in horrified disbelief -- but if I know in advance that they've behaved that way before, I'll be more likely to retain my mental footing and say or do something useful, rather than just staring with my mouth open.

*sigh* The person who dropped trou in the panel actually sells buttons that say "DBAA"... which expands to "Don't Be An Asshole".

The whole pants thing boggles me. I'm not sure who Selina Rosen is, or why she thinks she should be stripping at a panel, but no. Just no.

As for the rest of it- my head was exploding.

Mark Oshiro.

...

Yep. Increasingly I've been doing lectures over the last two years. And I always do "lived experience" talks. But increasingly it's become difficult because of the pervasive sense that I'm just there to justify "But see, we've got (x) on the stage...."

As a queer man of a certain age, I sure as HELL recognize this from other places than Cons... as I have only really gone to one. But yeah. What is sad to me about all of it is... none of it surprises me. God damn it. Not one bit.
