    Because I don't think you would've bothered with a thread about Vic Mingnona if not for his reputation as a Christian being compared to the more well known Kirk Cameron.

    :wtf:

    He's more famous for voicing Edward Elric and Tamaki from Ouran High School Host Club, but go off I guess.

    I literally don't care about his religious background. I care that hes yet another creep that the VA community has been hiding almost since the beginning of his career because he apparently had Funimation by the balls all this time. Some stories I've heard have involved him joking about kissing 12 year old girls, but then you refer to students as smoking hot, so maybe you're fine with that.

    I'm not. :shrug:

    I’ve heard he’s a bit grabby with underaged girls, at least based on a few incidents at Dragon Con. Kevin Sorbo used to hit on underaged girls, he went after a friend of mine when she was 15.

    Aaron Douglas from BSG would basically try to organize a harem at conventions.

    Don't know about the harrassment, but his voice is one octave too high to be Kirk.

    Really, it took them this long? Vic is well known for these things over the years and has actually been long disliked for his conduct at cons. He is also a large asshole.

    You have no idea. I was pretty sure he was already on the bottom of the pile, but there is no mystery he is grabby. It is not because he is Christian. It is probably more the fangirl following that overinflated his ego.

    My sons are huge anime/game fans and are completely bought into the youtube universe's insistence that there's no proof of this and it's all some sort of NPC SJW me-too lie and he's being crucified when he's innocent.

    Their gamer sources of info are...honestly...pretty toxic but I have only marginal success trying to say anything contrary. I haven't taken a position on Vic because I don't pay close enough attention to that world to know whether there's anything to the claims.

    I would assume this is basically the "rock star" mentality - wherein a certain portion of celebrities feel that the adoration of their fans is license to do shit other folks can't?
    (and honestly, it HAS been the case for like - forever - until the last year or two. At this point i have more contempt for those who persisted in such knowing the winds had changed than those who did so years ago)

    Last response is from a source I trust who has set up cons for over a decade.

    I've heard he was a generic douche canoe who'd arrive late to panels before, but this was new to me.

    There is this idea that anime cons are safe because ..... I don't even know. There is a much larger openness to hug and do things like glomping people. There seems to be an idea that everyone is going to act honorably and right. There are a lot of overly horny incels who have caused problems. The cons have had to ban young men walking around with signs asking for hugs and giving out their room numbers because these guys are doing it to touch young girls.

    I stopped con hugs with people I did not know years ago. I wander around the cons and get asked for hugs all the time from girls who were less than half my age. I have no business hugging them. I have no problem with a picture, but lots of them don't even have cameras. There is a reality that if you wanted to touch young girls at a con you put on a female costume and you will have your opportunity especially at a larger con. Vic just happens to be a fangirl obsession and it is probably like being a rock star. He should not be doing it, but in their quest to be noticed the best way is to start being what we would call slutty and exposing yourself.

    Things have turned around some with the community, but there is still enough floating about that it is easy to do if you wanted to.

    This is also assuming a con just has anime fans at it. Lots of the venues I have seen are in tourist areas and around sports stadiums which may have games going on with drunk male sports fans. You have your scantily clad teenage girls either cosplaying or just dressed scantily and then you have scumbags like @Dayton3 and his rapey football buddies roaming around drinking before and after the games. It is a combination for disaster.

    Yes, but when he does jerk off to them, does he have enough pecker-snot in the tank?

    "Glomping" is somewhat dated term for when fans latch onto a new obsession. Can also be used in the context of hugging strangers at cons.

    I thought that phrase died out with the Yaoi Paddle tbh :?:

    It is a little bit more than just a hug. It normally involves a running start and jumping onto the target. It is cute when you are young and small, but when you become an adult it can be painful or become a tackle. General con rules tend to frown upon it today, but it is not enforced unless there is a complaint. It should generally be reserved for people you know well, and not some random crossplayer who is unprepared for your enthusiasm or to catch someone.

    Pretty close. However, imagine if it is a 200+ pound dog. Some anime fans are of a larger variety, and some are not fully self aware of the weight they carry when jumping on others. Yes, I did almost spend a katsucon in traction after being glomped by a Lum that was over two hundred pounds.
