MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow got comedians Chuck Nice and Lea Dearia on his show to talk about Geeks for CONsent and their campaign to get more signage and a clearer harassment policy at the SDCC. Their take on it was the usual talk show bold face talking points surrounded by awkward laughing. The Geeks for CONsent weren’t impressed.

I think all the messaging can be argued here but what GfC DID do is put up harassment policies in bathrooms, including some in men’s rooms.they are also collecting stories of con harassment here.
