Over the weekend, New York Comic Con saw the usual crowd of geeks, nerds, cosplayers, and other pop culture enthusiasts. But it also saw a huge shift in the discussion about representation in comics and other media.
Attendees at this week's New York Comic Con have been pleasantly greeted with large and clear signs that declare "Cosplay Is Not Consent" and ask individuals to refrain from touching or photographing others without asking first.
Remember that sad white male writer bro who lamented all of the diversity on Nickelodeon because casting minorities is so "forced"? Well, Mathew Klickstein's odd racial perspectives got him kicked out of New York's Comic Con. *cries sad bro tears*
