Yeah… this SizeCon some size gals are planning and size guys are helping set things up. I was going to vent my feelings about it in a joke illustration later. By the time I get my art ready though, it’ll probably be too close to the event and potential damage would be unavoidable.
Macrophilia is a very multi-functional fantasy or fetish, but it’s first triggered by fantasies of domination. Also bigger breasts, asses, and legs. The key word is FANTASY, cause like it or not every fetish has more than enough people who miss the point and try to make it real for themselves. Home movies are one thing, but putting clay figures in front of random strangers while you hide and beat off in a bush is another. There’s people who are like that.
Every pop culture convention has its visiting creepers or stalkers, there’s no stopping that. But a convention based around what’s generally seen as a kink will be seen as a sexual orientation – in New York no less, the generally scorned city of “your head is a rat in a cage, the stick is New York, the stick pokes the rat constantly”. The website states a “zero-tolerance policy” and “we’ll have security present at all times” but these are all vague promises at this time. The VIP green-screen booth and custom video time with the fetish video producers and models is just asking for trouble.
There are women into giants or giantesses, but it’s a rather small minority. Macrophilia is mostly driven by mostly men and sad pudgy bastard children like me who are more interested in a giant women’s foot than a giant guy’s taint. The VIP rewards I mentioned and the guests seem to be tailor made for just men anyway – for outsiders, the rewards could marginalize the aspirations for the whole thing as an internet porn convention. How will this con be funded if the Kickstarter doesn’t work out? Remember if the goal isn’t reached within the established time, none of the money donated goes to SizeCon anyway. Another form of ticket services would need to be established, but then there’s the cost of letting more creeps or whack-jobs attend.
Blind hate, one-sided shame, false advice, and misguided support has become more than rampant online. A cartoon with giant (space rock) women has been hit hard with this fact. Do we really want a public convention of confused creepers, likely harassment or mismanagement, and bad generalization if it trends afterward? Not that I’m against the idea of a gathering of people with macrophilia, a full convention though is asking and suggesting too much.
We can at least help SizeCon from blowing up in smoke this early though before April. The tales of DashCon aren’t too distant a memory. Other size artists can also sum up my problem with this better than I snarked about.
First off, next time you use my art, please ask my permission. I don’t really appreciate you doing so, especially if it is to slander a cause meant to heal and support a community which I’m assuming you are a part of.
PLEASE stop making this sound like some fap fest. YOUR experience with your size interest is subjective. Please keep that in mind. Many of us suffer from self hate, fail in relationships because of our inability to share this part of us, some of us even suffer from dysphoria, depression, and pure anxiety/fear over it. Yes, there will be porn stars there. THEY are willing to help. We are inviting ANYONE who’s part of the size community to join. This doesn’t mean there will be giant dicks all over the walls. We want to make the con comfortable for everyone, and will keep adult content strictly in panels and discreetly in products sold in the artist alley and vendor area.
This doesn’t mean the con will be full of creeps. How do I know? Because most creeps are creeps because they can hide online, anonymously behind a mask with zero consequences. Because I’ve run size meetups since last April, and every member has been respectful to everyone. While we now have several female meetup members, there were at least 2 meets where I was the only female amongst 15+ men. Why don’t you have some faith in other men in our community? Especially the ones that are social, and would attend stuff like this in the first place, because fuck, you know it takes a lot of courage to ‘come out of the cupboard’ publicly. They’re human beings, not creepos breathing heavily in a shadowy corner.
I’m a woman and I feel safe being in a building with professional security (part of the SizeCon budget), in the safest big city in the United States of America. I think NYC is actually ideal, being one of the most liberal and open minded places on the planet. And yes, we will not support any kind of intolerance! I’d say almost half of our 60+ NYC Meetup Members would identify as being gay or bisexual. Hell, the person who edited the promo video of me with my arms swinging around like an idiot, was put together by a trans-woman. We fly many flags, and we open our arms to all our size loving friends around the world. This con is being run by me, remember? 😛
We understand our website is lacking. We understand you guys need more information. We’re working on it. We’re all doing this on our spare time, for no pay, and we only have so many people available to help. We promise this will be a well composed con, with proper panels. I’m running this show. I’m married, I got tattoos, piercings, punky hair, smoke a lot of weed, and I’m a blunt bitch. I’m pansexual and luckily have dipped my hands in all communities to help make this a very inclusive event. If there was ever a face, a spokesperson to run this con, you’re looking at her.
P.S. I have a ton of size sisters online. Just because you don’t see us, assuming you don’t come to the M/f side of things (and apologies if I’m wrong), doesn’t mean our numbers are weak. Almost all of our guests are women, women who actually do have this fetish, myself included. They so far have been the most eager respondence to come out and support this con. I’m actually shocked at the amount of pessimistic male artist out there who have turned down our invitations.
P.P.S. There a tons of guys and of course gals (myself included) would love to be under a giant dude’s taint :/ Sorry for the visual. 😛
Christ. Why do straight guys think that they own the patent on this shit? Personal incredulity and sample bias much?
