I'm not really a con-goer, but I've been planning to go to Anticipation in Montreal next year, 'cause it's close by and the Guests of Honour are writers I really admire.

And I was all excited about it. And now I'm just worried that, whether people are actively groping breasts or not (I'm going to guess not, based on the response to this), they're going to be ogling me. And I'm going to fret about wearing sufficiently frumpy t-shirts so as to discourage ogling. And that just sucks.

At least many many people seem to be responding, and the originator has acknowledged that is was a stupid idea, but.... ick. Just ick.

Link round-up here.
