Wow, I’m never buying anything Tony Harris does again. Disgusting.
(Ex Machina, Starman artist: his wikipedia page. Click the image to be taken to the Facebook thread where he posted this.)

Is this a thing now? I keep seeing people saying really stupid, horrible things about cosplayers and challenging their status as geeks or nerds.
For the record, I don’t give a rat’s ass if you don’t read comics but still dress up like Deadpool or Catwoman. The fact that you’re deciding to dress up in a costume and hang out at a convention is proof enough of geek cred… but then again, there is no litmus test for geekdom, nor should there be, and it’s no one else’s job to authenticate one’s status as a geek or nerd.
Tony Harris, your remarks are nothing less than disgusting and you ought to be ashamed of yourself. I expect better not just from a professional artist, but for someone who has worked on so many great project before. Simply despicable.

Another one gets put on my What not to buy list. What a sexist lump of shit.
