Nothing can prepare your sides for this:
Here's the official Dashcon simulator:
here's the admins' pages
holy shit. this guy actually thinks that scamming less than a thousand people out of 17 grand is some sort of grand accomplishment.
"It's clear that no one on DashCon's organizing team had any PR experience, because if they had, they probably would have spent less time sharing pictures of themselves crying on Twitter"
I've been on Tumblr for a couple years and I saw the original post suggesting a Tumblr convention. From what I remember, the ball pit and bouncy castle were always a part of it. And so were the panels about cheekbones and homoerotic subtext.
I don't think the original poster ever intended for it to become a real event.
Impeccably friendly he is an avid supporter of ‘cosplay doesn’t equal consent campaign’ and does his best to raise awareness to issues within the community.
‘cosplay doesn’t equal consent campaign’
‘cosplay doesn’t equal consent campaign’
I have friends who use Tumblr.
Triggers: Anything and everything Tumblr users complain about that causes them to remember/relive a past "traumatic" experience. Think shitty internet PTSD.
Cishet: Cis-heterosexual. Tumblr users calling people out for not being transsexual (cis) and being heterosexual. They actually will give you shit for this.
Fandom: Fanbase/community, only 1000x shitter and filled with screaming harpies known as fangirls. Big Tumblr "fandom" examples are Supernatural, Doctor Who, Homestuck, etc etc
Welcome to Night Vale: I know the least about this one. Apparently it's some podcast on iTunes and they're also a band? I honestly have no fucking idea.
that's referring to "trigger warning". often soldiers get PTSD and something that reminds them of war can put them into a panic attack or make them think they're back in the war if its an extreme case. But to tumblr, mild comfortableness is the same thing as PTSD
cis describe related types of gender identity where individuals' experiences of their own gender match the sex they were assigned at birth. usually used as an insult by transsexuals. google Die CIS Scum to see what I mean
A subculture composed of fans. you really should know that one honestly.
>A night vale
night vale is a podcast presented as a radio show for the fictional town of Night Vale.
hope I explained it to you. I'm a tad disturbed myself I know all these vocabulary words tumblr loves to throw around.
I know a trigger is something that disturbs, angersnor saddens you.
A random is a collection of fans of a series.
Night vale is "Welcome To Night Vale" a podcast series that is a cross between Twilight Zone and talk radio and is amazing.
That guy from "/pol/" is this guy who lives in illinois http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cflCyyEA2I
first of all, he's definitely not from /pol/, he went there to make fun of people and videotape it i assume. his channel was "milliondollarextreme" but it got shut down. i can tell its him simply by his voice
well, they're both programs that have more practical alternatives
but i was mostly kidding you. /g/ has had a great many projects not see fruition because of drama. those guys don't usually play well with others.
This is their only good video http://www.vice.com/the-vice-guide-to-travel/the-japanese-love-industry
I use tumblr, it doesn't make any difference from going into a 4chan board, you just form your own circlejerk and don't bother with other shit. Of course 1 or 2 of my followed blogs have become SJW but you just unfollow them.
CAPS FOR EMPHASIS, THERE'S NO 4CHAN OR /B/ INVOLVEMENT. THAT GUY IS SAM HYDE WHO GENERALLY JUST GOES PLACES TO CALL PEOPLE RETARDS, I LINKED THE VIDEO IN MY LAST POST IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME
"They found out who was on the panel (me!) and instead of actually scrolling down THREE FUCKING POSTS TO MY SELFIE, they accused me of being a straight white man appropriating the gay. Then the death threats started to come in, and then I was pretty much done with Tumblr. I did not log in again until Sunday evening. It was discouraging, triggering, and fucking disgraceful. "
TIL .. tumblr .. cis .. pansexual .. lgbtQA .. ponyphobia .. trigger .. headmates .. privilige .. glamdrogynous .. florasexual ... genderqueer ..
What the actual fucking fuck ...
There is a lost generation of people and they're flocking to fumblr. All of them.
We already know who it was, it was some /pol/tard, Hebe Goldstein.
The deleted one is where he pisses in it
They think they're some sort of special unique snowflake. I'm sure HE is just going through some sort of rebellious phase. Or they got fucked by their dad or something as a child so now they're fucked in the head. Still they deserved whatever made them into a fucking retarded faggot.
mfw kek! ITT suck my ballpit becomes ultimate trigger phrase
I'm so fucking glad dashcon happened
It made my tumblr-using friends finally realize how stupid tumblr is. They're easily-impressionable and kinda stupid but overall good people, and it took this to finally make them see how pathetic they were acting. Hopefully they don't fall into any other retardtraps.
one of the questions on the tumblr page goes as follows:
Can you explain how Caucasian males are the vast majority when approximately 1/3 of the world population is in Eastern Asia?
I live in America…
Does anyone have the video of him pissing in the ballpit? Anyone at all?
It's like they think it's some kind of oppression that they have to grow up like everyone else.
Hear hear .. soon it will be extinct
>the con organizers want gender reassignment surgery.
No, but seriously.
17000 dollars for a bouncy castle and a ball pit, where the hell did they put all this money?
I've been hearing we're only getting an extra 59 minutes in the ball pit. Does anyone have any info on this?
b-...but gay people are cool too
I know most of you /b/ro's despise the fine bro's but wouldn't it be great if we spammed them "YouTubers react to dashcon 2014"?
Only if you keep it to yourself like most heterosexuals. You'r gay? Great, stick around, we might need you later.
They kept it. Tumblr is filled with money-hungry cunts who'll do anything but submit to the patriarchy to get it fast.
>mfw this whole thread
I haven't stopped laughing for like 45 minutes now. Someone post the event schedule please
agreed, the woe is me act has got to go. People have real problems out there. We should push for a cis pride and thin pride parades. Shove it in their faces the way they say we do.
well actually im pansexual but i prefer guys since they have more relevant interests etc, honestly i dont get why more people arent, are peoples bodies that important to you all? im honestly curious. its hard to see it from someone elses point of view at times
I have .. no more ..
I hate to post this but i think it's worth pointing out that DashCon failed so hard, even Ponyfags are laughing at them.
>its hard to see it from someone elses point of view at times
You're failing to see ours.
what pisses me off the most is the way they choose to ignore basic biology
like, i don't give a fuck if you like to pretend you're a girl, or dress up, or even get sex change surgery
it just makes you a man who is into weird shit or wanted to be a woman
but these people...
Sexual preference is just like food preference. I for instance fucking refuse to eat anchovies. That being said I fucking love ceasar dressing, so maybe I like anchovies but I'll be fucked before I put that fucking greasy, boney, smelly little thing in my mouth.
thank you. i mean, regardless of whatever the fuck your warped mind perceives you to be, you're still identifying with one gender or the other. if you identify with neither, it's probably because you're a hipster faggot that hates the idea of conformity in any sense.
This ... so much this .. fuck all them sweet abreviations, cis, pan, florasexual .. whatever the fuck it is that fucking rocks your fucking boat people fucking post on fumblr and feel fucking priviliged about when triggered. I'm not even proud I NOW EVEN KNOW WHAT IT MEANS. You're either a guy or a girl. Ain't none of those fancy words make it any better. You have a fetish. Nothing more.
And the whole "will fuck anything" would logically include children and animals. To call oneself a pansexual is to call oneself a pedophile.
>the ball pit was free and not limited anyway, so until the alleged piss incident, and then the popping incident it was completely unregulated.
Wait, wait, wait, wait, are you saying they used the ball put AFTER it had been pissed in?
time flies when you're a faggot
well it does keep it within the confines of human, but yeah pretty much. just another classification for people who weren't satisfied with bisexual because there are so many trendy faggots that jump on the latest buzzword that they felt it didn't make enough of an impact. "you like males AND females!? well i like transfat transgender buzzword buzzword and i just feel that i need a new word because my sexual preferences are best defined by quirky terms i heard on tumblr and not by reason and logic"
>is it just me, or is it the asexuals that never try to make an ass out of themselves?
I'm asexual and I personally hate that I'm part of the pride rainbow. Nothing would piss me off more than if people decided to do asexual pride marches, or fast food chains decided to flaunt their "acceptance" of asexuality.
This is why I hate the stupid immature way most gays act.
you'll reverse image search this, then pretend you knew all along who she is. regardless she disproves your point

>I'm pansexual and I don't want to fuck children.
Then you're not pansexual. You're just an attention whore.
pretty much. if they want to stop receiving so much negative stigma they should stop slutting it up on public streets. not to say all of them do that but i've been to a few pride parades/festivals with friends and it really just seems like an excuse to make out with a bunch of strangers and wear rainbow frilly boas, a bright speedo, and not much else. if you want to make a statement for equality, probably not a good idea to stick out like a sore thumb.
whoa whoa whoa there come on now, i have my fucking standards here, the whole point of being a pansexual means youre interested in different personalities, i for one would not be interested in a fucking cat or a horse or a toddler or something because they dont fill my "criteria"
and it has nothing to do with identifying as a gender or whateverthefuck, im a guy, i was born a guy, i have a dick and i intend on keeping it. jesus christ youve been spoonfed with tumblrs shit for too long, not all of us run about spouting fandom and cis and whatnot
>pansexual means youre interested in different personalities
>/tg/ is just some guys playing dnd in the basement
hahah what? we're all the same in that we're all different, you're not unique for being interested in different personalities, nor should you imply that people who don't label themselves as pansexual do not. everybody has criteria and that also is not grounds for a different label.
>, i have my fucking standards here, the whole point of being a pansexual means youre interested in different personalities
Looks like dashcon 2015 is happening, and in an even bigger venue LOL
That's because asexuals, by and large, are just interested in not having sex. That's their desire.
"Pansexuals", and all the rest, are actually interested in acting out. But it doesn't stop there, they also demand that everyone else change their definition of normal to include their behavior (and of course throw tantrums if even one person fails to do so). In that way, they're like evangelical religious nuts: they formulate abberant ideas in their heads, and then badger everyone around them to believe them as well.
that has nothing to do with my argument that pansexuality is a buzzword used by people who feel so alienated from the rest of society but so desperate for approval that they have to create a new word to describe them.
but why does using a term or a word mean im a special little snowflake?
i dont wanna be a special little snowflake and i dont seek anyones approval, people have the right to feel and mean whatever the fuck they do
No, pansexuality is the complete blindness or disregard for gender in sexuality and sexual relations. It does NOT mean that you are some some sort of altruistic "EVRY1 IS BEAUTYFUL AND I ONLY CARE ABOUT YOUR PERSONALITY". Unless you're asexual, everyone is attracted to physical beauty in some manner. Shut the fuck up with your special snowflake syndrome, and shove it up your ass.
my severe case of pedophilia has nothing to do with me being a pansexual
because there is already a word to describe your sexuality, which would be bisexual if you like girls and guys (regardless of biological sex or orientation) or just straight up gay if you like guys. pansexuality essentially says that people who identify as one particular gender are different from people who are biologically born that gender, and that symbiotic relationship is the only reason the term is so widely used.
Still confused .. so much ***sexuals flora, pan, a ..
well duh i dont think "EVERY1 IS PWETTY :333"
tons of people are butt ugly and look like they have been dropped on the head one too many times as a kid
thats just not one of the things i give a shit about when looking for a boy/girlfriend
sure i would rather pick a model over trailer trash, as would anyone.
exactly, personal taste is personal taste, i'm sure some straight guys would go for mtf transsexuals, doesn't make them pansexual. if anything it further distances transsexuals from trying to belong to the sex that they feel they are in their mind. although i'm pretty sure that's what they want, like hey i'm a guy, but i'm this too!
Pic related is like porn to them
Bisexuals don't get aroused by this.
lrn to latin roots.
