Consider the Following
Last year, we were compelled to look into Comic-Con International in San Diego's harassment policy after a gallery was posted online by a member of the press who took photos of attendees' posteriors without their knowledge. It was something we assumed, as the largest convention in North America, would be front and center on their website. Turned out, it wasn't on their website at all but a small paragraph in their 200+ program guide handed out at the event. While harassment at conventions was an important topic to a lot of fans before this incident, it has gotten even more attention throughout the year. That brings us to a petition put together by Geeks for CONsent asking for a "formal anti- harassment policy" and more, but a representative from the convention says they already have what the petition is asking for. We took a closer look.
