Default "obese porn star's sue adult convertion"

What a shame that these folks were denied to get a booth at the adult convention simply because of the weight.

I'd like to sue PR Newswire for using the term "grossly obese" in a complete breach of journalism ethics.

Meanwhile...

I read about this a wee while ago.

Absolutely disgusting.

In the first link you can read the email the convention organisers sent them.

Discrimination

And here is an (awful, yuk, stupid even) news piece on it. Referring to the ladies "obesity" as a medical condition and therefore the ladies can pursue discrimination on the grounds of medical conditions...

How old is this exactly? Is it still ongoing? I might pitch this somewhere.

As far as I am aware Adultcon took place in December 2008, and all the legal stuff ongoing since then.

EDIT: The news snippet is dated March 18th so it must still be ongoing.

They should sue for punitive damages.

The problem with this lawsuit is that AdultCon actually invited the girls back after they filed a complaint. AdultCon, I'm sure, knows that discrimination is a violation of civil liberties and rights.

Not taking their side, mind you, but AdultCon should have just denied entry from the jump, with some other verbage that organizations can use (eg. "we're already booked up, can't take any more booth requests," etc) They tried to kick the girls out, but when they were called on the discrimination, they tried to backtrack/make amends/rectify the situation (however you want to take it) by inviting them back.

When they were invited back, the girls refused - and now they're taking AdultCon to court.

No offense - I am all for public size acceptance, but legally, this will more than likely be thrown out of court, since the convention offered to fix the problem. It's unfortunate - but having a picket line is probably going to do more harm than good for the community - and will give AdultCon the extra free publicity it wants.

I'm sorry that AdultCon acted badly, but being offended in perpetuity is never a good idea. Only by acting like adults rather than spanked children is the best way to show the public that we are strong, confident women.

But that's just my opinion...

PS Speaking of being "offended," I could really take offense at the use of a "chinaman's hat" in the "bow" smiley I used above. As an Asian BBW, I really could be offended. But I'm not - I'm bigger than that (pun intended) - and going to use it to my advantage!

I usually just take that emoticon as a insinuation of being gracious in victory.

As in... "Check and mate. "

But that is beside the point, which is....

Was there any direct action down there? Any progress in the court case?

Dear Kelly,

First, may I say welcome to DIMS. I noticed you joined recently and your comments and opinions will be interesting and helpful. As to the smiley of the "chinaman" as you called him, I have a girlfriend who is also an Asian American. She draws the smiley face below on all of her casual correspondence and post-it notes. (Yellow post it notes.)

I think your post is right on the mark. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
