I actually have seen legal and non-homely chicks at anime cons, but they're usually attached to some other guy.

Reminds me of that freaky drawing Yamazaki created in Welcome To The NHK. Only less freakish-yet-very-slightly-cute-in-an-insane-way and more what-the-hell-was-she-thinking sort of way.

Having never been to an anime con, are there really people committing random assault like that? (And would I not be perfectly within my rights to snap and kick their ass even if they were a girl if they did that to me?)

People like that are quite frightening...
I'm so glad Otakon banned those dreaded paddles

Yes.

Though somebody should have informed her that she didn't need to use ALL of the grab-bag contents at once.

Brings back painful memories...
I always see at LEAST one of these... things every time I go to a convention. The yaoi paddle is the world's worst invention.

Hehehehe....there's always a handfull of people that are like that at cons, they wear everything under the sun, but as long as they're having fun, it's all good.

I can't say that I've seen too much random physical assaults at any of the cons I've gone too, security is usually a bit tough on anything they view as weapons. But RadicaLElly is right about the glomps, you never see those coming!

You know, this could turn into a less painful version of Norbit.

Not to mention, as a yaoi fan, I don't even get the point of them. Seriously, is it a reference to some manga I've never read? Is it supposed to be some sort of blunted (and terribly misguided) cupid's arrow (i.e., if you smack 2 boys within a 10 foot radius will they gravitate toward one another)? Or is it that maybe, just maybe, some fans will buy anything vaguely associated with their fandom?

P.S. I can't help but think they should make them bigger so they can be used as pizza paddles or something in the future...

@rogue_gamecube-- I think she was going for a play on "semicolon," but yeah I noticed that too.

I'm glad that anime has a strong community. Sadly, freaky weird otakus do make up a portion. Furthermore, I really dislike those paddles. I saw one time at AX where some random female swacked a young man out of no where. I was not sure if it was friends or what, but I didn't stick around long to find out.
