This is just to say:

To everybody who has opined recently that sexual harassment policies at conventions mean an end to flirtation, dating, and romance at cons--

I'm involved in a relationship with somebody I met, befriended, and grew to love largely at conventions. He never once felt the need to grope me, make an inappropriate comment on my body or dress, or ask if anything I was wearing was meant as a coded sexual message before the moment when we figured out that we were each interested in one another in a romantic sense.

Neither flirting nor building emotional connection is harassment, folks--and harassment is not flirting.

It's not actually all that complicated.

Comments

It was a flirtatious weekend for me at 4th Street, actually, so I have something relevant to say here. None of the people I was exchanging various flirtations with managed to sexually harass me, and I am optimistic that I didn't sexually harass anyone! Really! It's not that hard.

Just be grownups, people. Christ.
