“Frankly put. I am a FAKE GEEK GUY. I admit it. I like geek stuff, but I don’t love geek stuff. Not the way most geeks do. I’m an interloper on the geek scene. I’ve seen the movies, but I don’t know the canon. I am not a true fan.

All those things about not really loving the source material and “just watching the movies” or only reading the one book that everyone has read. That—all of that—applies to me.

But here are some things that have never happened to me. I have never been quizzed about who Data’s evil brother is to prove I like Star Trek. I have never had to justify my place in a midnight line to see Spider-man II by knowing who took up the mantle of Spider-man after Peter Parker’s death. (Peter Parker dies? Really? That’s so sad!) I have never had to explain who Nightwing is in order to participate in a conversation about Batman. (Nightwing is like….Robin on steroids, right?) I have never been asked how battle meditation works in order to voice my opinion that Enterprise shields would probably make a fight with Star Wars technology one sided. (Battle meditation is something that was in that Jedi role playing game, wasn’t it?) I have never had to beat everybody in the room (twice) at Mario Kart to prove I liked video games. I have never had my gender “honorarily” changed by having enough geek interests to be accepted (“you’re one of the guys now”). No one has ever insisted I tell them the difference between a tank and DPS in an MMORPG before allowing me to discuss raiding Molten Core. I have never been dismissed as a faker at a prequel screening because I didn’t know which admiral came out of light speed too close to the planet’s surface in The Empire Strikes Back. I have never been quizzed about Armor Class in order to get past someone who was blocking my path to the back of a game store where my friends were waiting at the tables. I have never been told I’m not a real fan. I have never been shamed for coming to a convention despite my lack of esoteric knowledge. And I have never, ever, EVER been invited to leave a fandom because I didn’t like [whatever it was] enough.

Every one of the things I have listed, I have personally witnessed happen. To women.

That’s not elitism. That’s sexism.”

The “Fake Geek” is Not The Problem When It Comes to “Fake Geek Girls” (via brutereason)

I am definitely a Fake Geek Guy.

Though I do know which admiral came out of lightspeed too close to the planet Hoth.

Panel 3 is a perfect example of my reaction upon seeing photographs of myself, too.

Re-vandaleyesed this ad while traffic was stopped and judging by his reaction, I made some guy in an SUV&#8217;s day.
Then again, I coughed and judging by a different guy in a different SUV&#8217;s reaction, I made his day too.
Thesis: guys in SUVs really dig my bus stop style.

huffingtonpost:

Studies show that women apologize more than men, often for perfectly reasonable acts like, you know, taking up space. 

So watch this Pantene commercial here to inspire you to stop saying sorry for no reason. 

Interesting.

If you read up on neurolinguistic programming, you’ll find there’s tons of research backing the idea that you will literally *feel more confident and worthy of respect* if you stop apologizing reflexively and excessively.

Don’t apologize. Be proud. Take up that space you’re entitled to.

Guilty.

Wait, was that also an apology?

Fuck.

15 Things You Should Never Say To A Girl Gamer

kittydoom:

buzzfeed:

“It’s so hot that you play video games.” “Pics pl0x?” “Are you hot??”

“You’re not bad…for a girl.”

image

“I was going easy on you.” “I let you win.”

image

I seriously hope you guys don’t don’t this.

My favorite is, “Is that your gamerscore, or do you let your boyfriend play on your account?” FUCK YOU THOSE POINTS ARE MIIIINEE
