I don't suppose anything can be done about all the damn publicly displayed body pillows and people screaming "YAOI", can it? I'm trying to get my nephews interested in the con but crap like that makes me not even want to let them wander around by themselves...but I don't want to just shove them into rooms playing "Pokemon" either.

Every vendor/Artist is required to cover up any 18+ materials so no minors can happen upon naked boobs and other inappropriate images. Scantily clad anime girls on pillows and people screaming Yaoi isn't going to be censored though. To be fair, I haven't heard anyone screaming yaoi/yuri or anything like that randomly in the halls.

If the young ones do overhear those words and ask you what they mean it's up to you to decide to tell them, or just say it's an adult thing, or I don't know that Japanese word. Most of that stuff will go over their heads anyway(I know it did for me when I was a kid).

Gotta agree with Jujifox. There are workshops and such for the little ones, most of the more adult stuff doesn't happen until way at night and, depending on their ages, some of the stuff will go over their head. As for Cosplayers that might be dressed in a way that you might not think they should see, just tell them that it's like halloween, only older people wear costumes. Also there are a number of shows now coming out that they would probably like. Try to figure out which ones and then check and see on the artist alley forum for sellers, or venders, that may have stuff from the show.

I've been reading the first few pages of this thread...I know there will always by whiners, but was the con really that bad last year? I was there in 2011 and I had a great time.

I'd love to agree with you, but only after the con is over.
