There is something that I simply cannot wrap my head around with people who harass or make assumptions about women who are cosplaying. Where in our society is it ever considered appropriate to touch someone without their permission? The idea that one of the most basic rules of social conduct and interpersonal interaction vanish just because someone is wearing a costume or is dressed in something slightly revealing is not only absurd and frightening, it is utterly moronic. You do not touch another person without their permission. That is understood. You don’t give some stranger on a bus a hug because you feel like it. You don’t grab your co-worker because he’s not wearing a tie. So why would anyone ever think it’s ok to do that at a convention to someone just because they’re cosplaying? It is simply unacceptable that this is even a problem. No one should ever think that this behavior is ok under any circumstances. Ever.
