Проблемы научной фантастики

DNAInfo: A major science fiction and fantasy convention scheduled to hit the city in March has been canceled and moved from the River North Westin Hotel after a hotel official referred to attendees as "freaks," according to an announcement posted on the event's website.

Trota said that although the many members of the community proudly self-identify as "nerds" and "geeks," "being called a freak, in that context, makes it feel like you are being told that your activities aren't welcome, that there's something wrong with you, that it's not normal, which is very confusing at a point when the line between subculture and mainstream for geeks has become very very fluid, and very much a gray area.
