Wow, I’m never buying anything Tony Harris does again. Disgusting.

Okay, while I did laugh at “Con-hot”, the rest is just…sigh. As is the message.
No, Tony, that’s really not the case. Yes there’s a few attention-seekers, and some of them are guys, for that matter. Some people are after attention, and if they’re not playing around with people’s emotions, who cares? The ones that ARE just seeking attention and being predatory mostly get shunned for being shitty people. Really. It works, watch sometime. Even your lauded awkward virgins are apt to figuring it out and moving on.
Moot point. Just because you’re not attracted to someone doesn’t mean someone else isn’t, and why does a girl need to meet your standards to dress up and have fun? Besides that, just because someone is wearing something provocative doesn’t mean their ultimate goal is to become masturbatory fodder. Maybe it turns out they really like that character, or really like dressing up as a comic character because they’re good at costuming and people like it. There’s all sorts of reasons, and ultimately they’re none of your damn business anyway.
Once you understand that, you can stop projecting and blaming these supposed parasites for the attention you feel you should be getting instead, because you clearly are comics and how dare they not recognize and worship the great Tony Harris instead.
Until you learn that, though, learn some fucking grammar. Jesus Fucking Christ, man, you work in comics. Shouldn’t you know the proper use of “You’re” versus “your” at least, or that capital letters are for the beginning of a sentence or proper nouns, not just random emphasis?
Also what’s up with the contradictory message? Pretty girls don’t like comics, but ugly girls aren’t allowed to cosplay? So…what’s left that the great Tony Harris approves of?
