Geek Masculinity and the Myth of the Fake Geek Girl
I’ve been thinking about fake geek girls–or, more, the tenacity with which the geek community has latched on to the bugbear of the fake geek girl. Even in a community with a reputation as argumentative, the intensity and volume of the vitriol directed at the fake geek girl is unprecedented. It’s flat-out weird.
you have to understand that comics/anime feels so warm and welcoming to the “territorial assholes” and it has been there for them for a long time and they had it and stuck with it even though they were bullied so you can’t blame them for being unwilling to welcome in new “fans”
i’m not the type of person to try and make someone feel uncomfortable if they’re joining into comics/anime/gaming for the first time but i will have my gaurd up
