There are guy pros who say this horseshit behind closed doors all the time. It’s vital to remember that nothing you do matters unless people like this approve of it. Your sense of fun, fandom, belonging, appearance and artistry only matter if their tiny worldview allows it. I can’t believe the amount of shit cosplayers take for daring to express themselves in the manner that makes them happy.
Wow, I’m never buying anything Tony Harris does again. Disgusting.

This is insulting to so many people on SO many levels. Like the menfolk he’s trying to fight for, the cosplayers he’s insulting (why isn’t he dissing on the men who do the same thing?) and completely isolating con goers.
I was just working on a post about this, but this sums it up nicely.
