Note: This does not apply to my friends, or the lovely people I *did* meet this weekend.

Lunacon has been filled with some of the worst stereotypes and bad memes about Fandom, and it has made me hate my "tribe" in a way I haven't done in a very long time.

I found myself distinctly uninterested in the panels, after hearing what a fiasco one of my friend's panels consistently were.

I found myself distinctly uninterested in socializing other than with the people I already knew, and the friends they had with them.

I found myself horrified by behavior reported to me by creditable sources.

I went to computer camp for six years. I have been active in fandom online and off. I have been active in the SCA.

This is by no means my first experience with this community, but it's definitely the first time I've been unhappy to be here.

I know that this convention is usually a fun, positive experience.

I feel worse for the organizers and the hotel staff than for myself with this. I will still attend conventions, SCA events, Pennsic, etc.

But dude.

What. The literal. Christ.

On Friday afternoon, I escaped the wave of nerds con floor to join my friend Lisa at her hotel's pool.

While we were sitting there, we saw this...

Holy Tanlines, Batman! )

It was ah...pretty amazing.

More photos as I get 'em...
