Jeez, 'Conservative Hispanic Writer Jon Del Arroz Banned from Worldcon Sci-Fi Convention' for ...? But child predators are given a hand slap or even a pass at other venues.

New Book Blows the Lid Off the Dark World of Child Sex Abuse in Sci-Fi Fandom
By Megan Fox January 10, 2018

Moira Greyland is the daughter of famous authors Marion Zimmer Bradley and Walter Breen. She has written a memoir about growing up in a "queer" family and suffering hideous child abuse. In The Last Closet: The Dark Side of Avalon, Greyland details the horror of being a helpless child trapped in a far-left fantasy world. The world constructed by her mother, author of The Mists of Avalon, and her father, author of Greek Love (a book literally detailing why pedophilia is fine and even good), was a dark and frightening world. Unfortunately, though many saw how unhappy Greyland and her siblings were, no one stepped in to stop it and people, in fact, turned a blind eye.

Greyland's description of her family's philosophy is chilling. "All sex is always right no matter what." This philosophy forced her to endure being raped by her father at the achingly innocent age of four and molested by her mother throughout her childhood. Both her parents insisted she was gay because they believed that every person is naturally homosexual and will be homosexual if not corrupted by heterosexual experiences. Through the exposure to two gay parents and relatives and their friends, Greyland developed a theory about homosexuality that is very unpopular.

The article goes on to describe the laissez-faire attitude at the conventions.
In one particularly egregious incident, Breen molested a little girl in public at a convention. Greyland included a letter written by Bill Donaho in 1963 about banning Breen from Worldcon.
"Walter's conduct was so bad that it called the culture of sexual tolerance into question: many people thought 'consenting adults' should not include toddlers....Walter's victims included a girl, age 3, a boy, age 13, another boy named Glenn...aged 10 and a boy known as G2, age 7, as well as several other nameless teenagers, both male and female," Donaho wrote. "Walter molested the 3 year old girl in public more than once. She had been trained to strip when she saw him. He would 'rub her down.' He also used a pencil, rubbing the eraser back and forth in the general area of the vagina."

This was done in public, during Worldcon, and there was an actual debate on whether or not to ban him.
He was banned for one year. :roll:
