commented on ECCC Roundup!
I'm Molly McIsaac and I curated and was on the "How to Talk to Girls" panel. It was not our intention to be demeaning - these are questions I am asked nearly every day, and I was speaking from first hand experiences (of the negative variety). If you stayed around for the questions, you would have noticed that people were asking incredibly basic questions - because in our subculture people DO need help in this subject.
Myself (and John Roderick if he's at the same con as I am!) will continue this panel because it helps rather than hurts. It's a necessary evil, and I was delighted with how many people - men and women, straight and gay - approached me afterwards on the convention floor to "practice" on me and then ask my opinion.

Thank you so much for posting our video! It means a lot to us!
This is an important issue that I have addressed several times on various websites I write for - the entire argument is absurd and archaic. A recent article by the editor of Dark Horse for Comics Alliance puts things nicely: http://www.comicsalliance.com/2012/11/15…
