    I just need to say, this made me smile. This is my fifth year of Con-going…And despite that I’m speaking of myself, I would say I’m pretty normal. There was one year the Con was held at the same place as a cheer leading convention…the mother held her hand over her daughter’s eyes and told her not to look at us. Funny…we felt the same way about them.

    Tia – I’ve had the same experiences myself. One year, there was a wedding and a reception going on right next to our main function space. The mother of the bride looked horrified that all us “freaks” were going to be wandering around the hotel.

    Probably the worse part is the prejudice~ We had a wedding party sharing the hotel, one year, and a chaperon was sitting in the lobby, getting more and more horrified as the hotel staff talked about crazy going-ons late at night…turns out it was a bunch of the wedding guests. The chaperon’s daughter, however, hasn’t been allowed back, since…
