@finaldasa: A bag is fine as long as it's a bag you don't mind carrying around while you're there. You usually end up with some free stuff given to you at cons so it's not a bad idea.
@Anzendenai: Until we live in a world where people aren't ridiculed for the things they like, I don't think the public will ever be "ready" for things like Friendship is Magic. People in general are becoming more and more open-minded as the years go by though, which is good.
I still don't know what "violent behaviour" you were talking about though, and this show is way too popular to get cancelled any time soon.
