Post on the FB group for the local con, by an otherwise fairly cool poster:

So that swimming anime, is there any cheesecake in it? Cuz I don't like boys in swimsuits. Just so everybody knows.

Responses tended toward:
- God forbid there should be ONE series that doesn't cater to you personally. Get over yourself.
- You should try, you know, every other series out there.
- It's fanservice for straight girls (mostly). That's a thing, FYI.

And this is on a general-public anime convention board, not some niche site!! I'm so proud of my fandom right now! Squee.

Of course, that was followed up by some gross GIF meme about how crossplay is inherently hilarious and people who don't make the poster's pants happy aren't allowed to cosplay. Sigh. One step forward, one step back.

I called them out on it, or tried to. One step forward, one step back.
