Happy Saturday Arvo, everyone! Today’s vid is by the lovely Angelina, who talks about the notion of the “fake geek girl”.

A “fake geek girl” is a female fan (said to be conventionally attractive but, like other misogynist labels, can be applied to any female) who pretends to enjoy a particular facet of geek culture (comics, games, etc) for the attention of boys. While I’m sure that the amount of attention-seeking females is nonzero (and probably just as many as the number of attention-seeking males), the idea that just because a girl is both attractive and enjoys geek culture means that she’s “faking it”, is, clearly, ridonkulous.

The only thing I have to add though, is this hilarious post that came across my dash on tumblr one day:

I am laughing forever

Anyhoos, here’s the video!

Serena is one of those wannabe-Feynman types who can only really be described as kind of a dipshit. Forever a Snorlax, she spends an unhealthy amount of time consuming television and music and movies, while occasionally pondering the mysteries of the universe. She started HVNGRY in an attempt to combat her allergies to bullshit, and is looking forward to more chances to write about herself in the third person.
