It's a... difficult issue. If things come back that they were more than that, or even if they become involved in a media storm about them for bullshit reasoning (the media rarely if ever cares about truth)... well, you're fucked. Either stand by them regardless or be media friendly. Those are your choices. =/ Is the friendship or the possible media outlook worth more to you? I don't know, I only tangentally see your stuff so I can't even decide what I would pick. Just how I'd think.

We live in a world more based in perception than reality.

I've already burned the friendship relating to the question. 
I just think it's sad that they would be invited as a guest of honor and then disrespect the con by inviting someone that's a threat to the kids and other people attending.
They want this person there so they can laugh at him getting himself into trouble.

All of the info posed in the question is confirmed to be true, so there's not much to question.
The person does have a lot of photos online of them engaging in sex with horses and other animals. The pedophilic ones aren't legal in the US, so I don't wanna bother looking/seeing those.

Okay, misread the title. I took "known" more as they had a lot of content of their art involving it, not that they'd engaged in the actual acts. If that was the case? Sorry, but I have little sympathy for them beyond so psychiatry.

As for whomever invited them? If they had any such for knowledge (even an inkling)? That should never been done. Ever.

They know full and well what this person is like. And they don't care. They just want to have him there to laugh at at the expense of the safety of kids attending and the integrity of the convention.

I'm all for freedom of speech, and were I holding an even wherein a group decided to espouse those sorts of beliefs... well, I wouldn't exclude them based on that.
I'd shrug and hope that all the great things my fandom did. Lets present a better argument.

You want to go around breaking local laws on things? Or have done so? Conider at best crimes in absentia at worst convition in abscntia. That's all esta-legat and
won't work. I don't know what I'd do... glad I don't have too so far.

Same really.
If anyone wanted to go somewhere to proclaim their beliefs, then they should be allowed to do so. No matter how wrong or crazy they are. As long as they do so without causing disruption to the function of the bystanders and what they are there for.
But this is just an individual that's likely to get there and cause mischief, like he has at previous conventions i.e Bronycon 2014. 


Either way, the con chair is already aware of this person, and they have said that they will be barred from con functions if they show up. They cannot ban him without his real name, so they are trying to enforce a ban through the guest of honor that they invited themselves. Which to me says that their guest of honor isn't being very honorable towards them and their con.


It was kinda sad though, the screenshots I saw of the emails and convos with the con chair showed he was extremely unprofessional. I would expect a con head to be gracious and understanding. But this douche was callous as anything.
