PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THIS AND SHARE THIS.
Aki-Con wants to hide this under the rug, they have blamed the victim and called her a liar, and DJ Victor is NOT to be trusted. He is a known felon, who has raped two known girls now, but who knows how many others who have not spoken up of this. All I ask is that you reblog this and get this attention out there.
Share it with local news media stations, other convention goers, etc.
I actually tried to warn Aki-Con about this man being a felon and they ignored me.
And guess what?
Another innocent girl got RAPED because they ignored the facts.
Not only that, but they IGNORED the girl and tried to say she was lying when she immediately went to staff for help.
EDIT: So, Victor Malice is a part of a cosplay group with around 400 members, give or take.
Which is still a very small part of the pacific northwest and Seattle cosplay community. Out of safety and concern for the members, I shared the post about this situation to the group.
The admins are friends with Victor Malice and DELETED THE POST as to HIDE what happened to people.
IGNORING WARNINGS IS WHAT GOT US HERE, PEOPLE.
If Aki-Con had heeded the warning they received and dropped him as their DJ, then a girl would NOT have been raped by him at Aki-Con 2013.
I personally find it SICKENING that his friends are being his accomplices and are trying to hide these facts from everyone.
This includes the Aki-Con staff that are his friends and knew his past,
This includes the cosplay group admins that are his friends and knew his past,
This includes any of the people who knew his true nature and kept quiet about this. All of this. And even now, they are trying to hide it.
LADIES, PLEASE KEEP YOUR GUARDS UP AT ALL TIMES.
Bad things CAN HAPPEN AT CONVENTIONS.
I will tell you this to the end of the world, because I don’t believe in hiding these facts. I don’t think it is “protecting” anyone in anyway to try and hide what happened. So yes, against their wishes, I will help spread the word about this poor girl and anyone else who may have been victimized by him.
Because I don’t want to see the numbers increased by fools who tried to hide the truth about people who are like DJ Victor Malice.
This isn’t just about one man having done this, this is about making sure people know these kinds of things do happen at conventions.
EDIT2: Luckily someone had left the tab up and had the conversation. So, since it was requested, here was the post and the arguments.
Admins were tagged, and the post was deleted. Remember how it was argued that the admins would tell the group about anything if there was any kind of safety concern?
Well, no warning has been posted. The post got deleted as soon as the admins noticed it and nothing has been said about it since.
I want to say that I personally know Malice and had been friends with him in past.
At one point I had even caught his interests and it had left me deeply disturbed. I am not the only made uncomfortable and there are many other people that have admitted to me the bad things he has done to them or had made them feel. Although I had long grown uncomfortable with him, I was constantly assured that it was a huge misunderstanding.
They told me I was just seeing things and he never meant it that way, he has a girlfriend! I let it go, but then I questioned why would he talk to me and make advances like that if he was already dating someone else. There are a lot of people he has hurt and I want everyone to understand that what he has done is unforgivable.
There was no misunderstanding. There is only the facts.
Well, he’s an excellent resource. He’s come to appreciate the efficacy of my methods and he shares sensitive information when needed. If he’s murdered, I’ll have to start over with ANOTHER detective.
And he would have to find another bed buddy.
i ship BELLAMENTARY
I think of all the other detectives here as “not Bell”.
have you noticed that when someone goes ‘i was bitten by a dog once and now I’m kinda wary around them’ most people are like ‘aw, I understand’ but if a woman says she’s been raped/abused by men in the past and is now scared of them she gets told she’s paranoid and needs to get over it?
I noticed that.
have you noticed that when a dog bites a person, it gets put down
that second comment
FRONT DESK 1st VIOLINS:
FRONT DESK 2nd VIOLINS:
SOMEONE ADD FRENCH HORNS! RIGHT NOW!
As a former 1st violinist, I can tell you this is all true.
why is this so appropriate
as a former French horn player (THANKS FOR ADDING US!!!)… yeah, you get the picture :))))
“…trolling used to be pretty funny and almost entirely harmless. Trolling, despite the modern usage, does not mean “the act of pissing somebody off and laughing about their anger.” It is “the act of pissing somebody off BASED ON SOMETHING COMPLETELY MEANINGLESS and laughing about their MISPLACED anger.” It isn’t considered trolling to leave a comment full of racial epithets and laugh when people “don’t get it.” It is trolling if you leave a comment insisting on the wrong information about something irrelevant – how many runes are on a Stargate, for example (everybody knows its 12) – and wait for the ONE guy that just can’t let the transgression pass. If you start a fake fight with Prof. Stargate, dragging him deeper and deeper until hopefully, finally, even he has to stop and think “wait a minute, this is ridiculous,” that is trolling. That’s the difference: No actual harm is caused, and even the victim can eventually get in on the joke. “Trolling” isn’t referring to hiding behind a fortification and trying to hurt people like the mythical creature. It’s referring to the style of fishing – you drag bait across the bottom hoping to get a rare bite. It’s not ‘bait’ if you’re earnestly spouting your misogynistic beliefs and somebody gets upset. There’s nothing funny about entirely justified anger.”— Robert Brockway, http://www.robertbrockway.net/2013/07/18/its-not-a-game-if-you-cant-lose/ (via pelikinesis)
You know, there have been gamer dudes who have told me, “oh yeah, I love feminist discussions about TV and video games,” as they side eye me with this eager, expectant look like they want praise or something. Yet when I hang out with them, online or off, I never hear them talking about anything feminist until I bring it up first, and usually only to vaguely agree.
But then there’s this one dude. He’s majoring in video game programming, and I’ve worked with him in the past in college. He’s responsible, sweet, and he’s never hit on me, or any lady I’ve seen. And every couple of days I see him posting on Facebook getting excited about the new Muslim Miss Marvel, or the “It’s Time” marriage equality commercial. He just made a post about how racist and sexist the TV show “Dads” is.
And this one dude? He’s never, ever said to me, “I love feminist discussion.” But unlike all the other dudes, he actually does it. And I secretly love him a little bit for that.
