    My favorite signs were “Who died and made you Batman?” and “Why are you surprised I want to be an Autobot when I grow up?” (mostly because I wanted to be the same thing… Still kinda do, nevermind my Decepticon wheelchair).

      If we rehabilitated Jetfire and Octane, we can rehabilitate your wheelchair :)

    I don’t know how many times I’ve been forced to prove my “nerd cred” because I have boobs. The girl with the sign about only playing games because of her boyfriend? Almost every single time I walk into a damn game store where I’m not a regular. I walk up to the counter with a few games, and some smarmy mouth breathing troglodyte behind the counter laughs and says “Awww are these for your boyfriend.” No, jerkface. They are for me and my mom. I’ve had a controller in my hand since I was 4. My mom used to whoop my butt at Tetris. She can still wipe the floor with me at old school Mortal Kombat. She raised me on a steady diet of games, comics and giant robot anime.

    Tl;dr this song is awesome, and more stuff like this should be out there.

    If you have nothing to prove and need no ones permission to be a geek, why are we having so many conversations about who is real and who is fake. If you really didn’t need anyone’s permisson or approval we would not be consistently hearing about this. Like whatever you want, then sack up and quit complaining when someone doesn’t agree with you or treat you nice. Its part of being a geek regardless of gender. Baptism by fire.

      Except it’s really not, and it doesn’t have to be. Geeks were shunned by the external pop culture for many many years. Why on earth would you want to perpetuate that kind of treatment of others, regardless of gender? Nobody should be made to feel like an other. Especially not in geek culture. Does this mean you have to like everyone? Nope. But it does mean that people, regardless of anatomy, should be treated as humans, and not as something that should be “baptized by fire”
