It's a new com opening up in Seattle, WA and I'm excited about it. They don't really have anything going for it yet, there will be a meeting on Jan. 15 and I will be volunteering there.

They are accepting donations as we speak and type.

I know some of the ladies involved in this (in that round-about internet way), and I really hope this con can get its feet off the ground. A con aimed at chicks would be boss.

I do hope it gets off it's feet, I think it's a great to have a Con that a bunch of girls able to get together with the same interests and not get teased about it.

...At the same time, I'd be afraid that the place will be swarming with guys looking to pick up a hot, single nerd chick. I mean, already the mainstream cons are doing speed dating events. I think I would be more uncomfortable at a con aimed at women because of guys who are there just to meet girls. Maybe. Maybe not. I just see more potential for creeps at something like this.

As for teasing, I've never been teased at a con. I've usually been treated pretty well. It could be because I travel with a posse, though.

I really hope they put on a good show, I just hope it isn't a bunch of "I did it and I'm a woman, so you can, too!" pep talks and all that horribly tween-girl-ish Her Universe stuff. I'd like to see them set a precedent for more female-centric programming at all cons, so we can mix the "chick stuff" with the "dude stuff".

I meant by teasing when you not at a Con and the young girls who teased that do things who that boys think they should only do.

I was also thinking about what you are concerned about, creepers looking for single nerd women.

I'd go. It would be good place to meet girls and not in the creepy way. you'd know going in that girls are nerds therefore slightly easily to talk to and you can you know if you reference stuff they will actually get it.

also If i wore my jayne hat i would tons of comments.

So it's happening in October 2011? I really want to go. Even though I'll be out of the country it's far enough out that I could take leave and come home to visit family AND go to the Con!!!
