Frank Wu e-mailed me the following yesterday. Looking at it, I'm thinking this might make a good button.

From Frank: "Feel free to copy, disseminate, put on buttons/websites,
whatever (and tell others to do so, too) ... Or, if you think it needs changes, lemme know."

He'll be working on a few other things as well. Hopefully including the multi-armed alien, since that one seems to be so popular.

If you post this elsewhere, I'd ask that you credit Frank Wu somewhere. He deserves it.

Re: Ask first, then hug

I want one of those, too. "Ask first, THEN hug" is something I have wanted for ages...

Re: Ask first, then hug

The awesome ktempest is looking into putting together an online button store for these. Once Frank gets me the artwork, I'll pass that along.

Once these suckers are available, I'll be posting a big old announcement here in the group.

Re: Ask first, then hug

On the other hand, even "ask first, then hug" is a bit permissive for me - the implication being that, if you ask, of course I'm going to give permission. And while I'd like to show support, I don't want to set myself up for explaining that while I support consensual hugging in principle, I don't often go for it myself. Besides which, I'm in the demographic that needs to get its act together, not the demographic that's being mistreated.

What I would like to be able to do is be one more person at a con who's making a statement against inappropriate behavior. Any ideas for a logo that says "I support this initiative" without implying "hug me"?
