In reality, there is no such thing as the fake geek girl.
“There is no such thing as a fake geek girl. There are only girls who are at different, varying levels of falling in love with something the society generically considers to fall under the nerd culture category.” - Youtube personality albinwonderland in her video “Fake Geek Girl”
Tony Harris, a comic book writer who worked on Iron Man, Starman, and Ex Machina, posted this rant on his facebook.
tl;dr Women at conventions are imposters! And whores! I don’t respect any women and assume their entire existence is for the pleasure of men! Boobies!
People are allowed to like *some* elements of a culture. In fact, this happens all the time!
Getting mad at women for liking what is considered a ‘superficial’ part of nerd culture but ignoring the fact that men also enjoy ‘superficial’ parts of other cultures as well? Oops! Your sexism is showing, again.
