Are You A Convention Creeper? [VIDEO]

Consider the Following

As a cosplayer who attends several conventions a year, it’s safe to say I’ve witnessed/experienced a few creepers in my time, individuals who either don’t know or don’t care their actions and behavior are inappropriate. A year ago, one of my groups had to have several of our male companions stand behind us while we posed for shots on the convention floor because a guy was standing there trying to take pictures of our asses. In fact, one of my friends recently wrote an “Open Letter to Convention-Going Butt Photographers.” But I digress, it isn’t only us ladies who notice and take offense, and geek comedian Black Nerd decided to address the whole issue in his latest “Black Nerd Rant.”
