Pains me to even tweet this but I have to say and I have to thank #superherobadass "Catwoman" @AdrianneCurry @Katrina and @Todd_Roy for being such EPIC friends......
YESTERDAY, myself, dressed as Tigra, was with the above-mentioned friends and we were all in the super crowded San Diego Comic-Con International Gaslamp area taking photos with #SDCC peeps and fans. Some total A$$H0LE came up behind me and tried to stick his hands in my bottoms and then yanked my tail and pants down.
I just freaked out, screamed trying to keep my bottoms up -- but Adrianne Curry literally took off after dude WITH her Catwoman whip and chased him down, beat his ass. Punched him across the face with the butt of her whip -- he had blood on his face - got on her costume. Katrina got in his face, Todd shoved him, the guy ran off - huge ruckus and yep some people got their cell phones out of course.
I was very VERY upset because as many times as I have attended #SDCC, I have never experienced this behavior. Just the day before, one of the Trek Bunnies, Amanda Orion) had to have a guy kicked out of the con for being lewd and disgusting and shoving his camera lens between our legs when 3 of us were walking out.
This event is supposed to be a fun, light-hearted, exciting, and yes over the top time for everyone. That does not mean start disrespecting people and thinking you can act like an IDIOT just because they have a costume on. Very disappointing.
However, this problem is not going away as SDCC has just had to introduce a "No Harrassment Policy" at the con because as the event itself has gotten so big in recent years it has invited a host of random MESS and foolish behaviors. Sad.
%$^$-tards aside, it's still the best time I have all year -
Right now, I am just thankful and happy I have friends that don't even have to put a costume on to be superheroes. AM
