I shouldn’t have to say this but apparently it’s not obvious enough for some people.
IF YOU MEET SOMEONE AT A CON WHO IS SMALLER THAN YOU, THAT IS NOT PERMISSION TO PICK THEM UP OR CARRY THEM AROUND. I DON’T CARE IF YOU “THINK THEY’RE CUTE” DON’T FUCKING DO IT.
PLEASE ASK PERMISSION FIRST AND RESPECT THEIR WISHES IF THEY SAY NO.
THAT IS AN INVASION OF SOMEONE’S PERSONAL SPACE AND COMFORT.
