Comic-Con is seen by many as a chance to dress up as their favourite fictional character and let their inner geek run wild.

Unfortunately it is also seen by some as a chance to leer at those whose chosen character is scantily clad.

Now a petition calling for changes to the San Diego Comic-Con, which kicks off this Thursday, has been started, and it already has more than 3,000 signatures.

It follows the ‘Geeks for Consent’ movement, which was started by women who claim they have been harassed at convention events due to the way they dress.

Testimonies from women at events say they not only have to deal with lurid comments and inappropriate photographs, but also physical harassment from convention goers.

Some people have even been caught using subtle Go-Pro cameras to shoot candid footage of women at the events.
