Hey, Harlan?

This is so not okay.

Comments

My only encounter with him very nearly -did- end up as "my fist, his face" followed up with a round of "Steel toed boot meet ribs."

I didn't care that he was an ass to me, that he was generally rude and offensive and annoying to the other adults in the room.

But he ripped into a little kid...she couldn't have been more then 12, 13. For being in costume at a con where there were a lot of gamers. And daring to ask him to sign her book.

I was about an inch from taking off my security armband, handing it in, and stomping a mudhole in his ass to remind him that gentlemen do not behave in that manner towards women or children. Ever.

I have quietly despised him, ever since.
I don't know him, and have never met him, and cannot comment on him as a person, so I'm certainly not going to proclaim any opinions there.

My goal right now is to draw attention to the fact that it's not okay to put your hands on somebody else in an aggressive or sexual or teasing fashion without permission, at least implied.
Was that in NY somewhere? I heard an account from a friend of mine who witnessed pretty much the same thing.
Chicago.

He's really gone beyond 'charming and curmudgeonly' to 'I am a dick, please ignore me.'
