“Nothing ends, Adrian. Nothing ever ends.”
Dr. Manhattan: November 2, 1985.
Comic-Con. San Diego. 2009. DC Comics Pavilion.

Jesus CHRIST, who thought THIS was a good idea?
Holy SHIT.
This made me dislike Watchmen even MORE.

I.
Just.
No.
Words.

EDIT: Wait, there are people DEFENDING this?
Look, this scene and plotline in the original graphic novel were pretty gross and horribly mishandled.  So going to a con dressed like this and re-enacting the scene? 
Some of you are right.  It’s not illegal.  It’s freedom of speech.  I’m not saying they should have been thrown out of the con or punished.  I AM saying that they should have had the human decency to not dress up as a rapist and his victim “for funsies.”
