When did this become some big issue? I imagine it came to be after people got made at some random comments on the internet hilariously describing the correlation between these so called fake geek girls and your average attention whore. And by people, I mean feminist and said attention whores, since I am fairly sure any real geek, male or female, would be too busy indulging themselves in their passion to give two shits about their appearance over the fucking internet of all places.
It seems like very angry women versus very vehement trolls that like having the ever so easy target the is your average estrogen laden damsel in distress. And yes I admit that picking on them is pretty fucking funny to an extent, but can we stop alienating potential fans? Especially female ones, and on the flips side, stop getting so mad at ALL men (I am looking at YOU feminist) as if every geek out there was a meme spewing idiot.
I think if you are a geek girl and you find yourself constantly being harassed online maybe you should cease going to shit sites like 4chan or whatever in the first place lol. Also stop stating that you are a girl, no one cares. So how fake geek girls become an issue of sexism in comic book writing, too much cheesecake, and guys paying attention to fictional characters more than YOU, which just screams of jealousy and immaturity imo. Pretty sure that was an entirely separate issue that could be solved with wallets and not debates. It’s not like there aren’t a SHIT load of well written(used loosely) comics(and especially manga) out there that aren’t about scantly clad women showing off there cleavage( as if there wasn’t a crap load of women that didn’t like that to begin with) for you to spend your money on. Instead of trying to defend what as far as I can tell are scene girls with horrible haircuts that probably do watch too much Big Bang Theory and are probably just as autistic as Sheldon.
I say, let the geeks be geeks, let the whores be whores(because boobs), and let mean nerds be mean, but stop trying to make such a big deal out of something that in its very nature is juvenile to begin with. A majority of these people that are being referred to are teenagers or people that still think they are teens, whom we all know are not very bright for the most part. Unless you are that kid that invented that thing that like, detects cancer and what not. I bet he didn’t spend all day arguing over the net. They are still in the process of trying to identify with something. Let them figure it out for themselves before you either push them away or try to recruit them for your own misguided agendas. Let them grow up, and in the process, stimulate both my genitals and the economy.
