I have a big announcement for the rest of 2021 and 2022 and beyond. I will not be attending any fan conventions in 2021 and beyond until Kumoricon, Orycon, RCCC, Anthro Northwest come to their senses and stop forcing unnecessary medical test or divulge private medical information as a requirement to attend a convention. It is wrong for those who are and force others to surrender their freedom and privacy for three days of fun deserve nether. I do believe health and safety is the issue but the 900 LB ogre call government Lockdown. There are those who willing to throw other’s privacy under the bus to keep the lockdown ogre at bay.
Do not get me wrong I am centrist in the vaccine debate. I am against any government mandate but realize for me and other the vaccine is needed. I frown on both force mandates and the anti-vaccination crowd. I can poke hole in both arguments. Some people may not need vaccination while others it a life saver. I do not believe the false narrative of herd immunity. It may not happen We just need to live with COVID-19. Private organization can make rules regardless how bad as well of my choice not to attend.
Foer those who are putting such restrictions in the name of protecting immune depressed and people with auto immune condition like me, you are doing us no favor. I must board a bus and max trains with vaccinated non-vaccinated I am still here.
I am willing to help support alternative and events. The rules will be just use common since and that is it.
