    Down With I-CON

    I have been on this campus for many years and every year have dreaded and avoided the campus for one weekend in the spring semester.

    This past weekend thousands of people, wielding cardboard swords and wearing costumes of their favorite Japanese animated characters, converged on Stony Brook’s campus for the last year of I-CON.

    For 27 years, I-CON has been held at Stony Brook, and for 27 years these people have wrecked or defiled our campus with their “activities.” Some of the most popular of these activities are showings of hentai, Japanese animated pornography, and “gatherings” of furries.

    Furries, for those of you who don’t know, are individuals who dress in costumes resembling stuffed animals and proceed to fornicate.

    A few years ago, a friend who has already informed me of an incident involving furries during I-CON a number of years ago. A group of furries, during the I-CON festivities wandered into Javits Lecture Center and began to have an orgy just in front of the stage. During said orgy, two men in Star Wars storm troopers costumes were walking through Javits when they heard some noise, went into Javits and called campus police. The stormtroopers assisted with the detainment of the furries while remaining in character the entire time.

    This is just one example of why it is good that I-CON is leaving campus indefinitely. Whether the thousands of costume-wearing havok producers brought business to campus or not, Stony Brook is better off without I-CON.

    I speak for myself when I say this, but it makes me little unnerved to know that strangers have either watched pornography on large lecture hall projection screens that I take exams in or have had sex in that same room. Let Suffolk Community College deal with those problems next year.
