As Always, it Started With Star Trek: A Study On Geek Girls

For many years, whenever people would tell me that girls are rare in geek culture, my instant reaction would always be: well, no.

I would be surprised and a little puzzled at their assumption and would instantly think of all the women who were fans or contributors to the Star Trek fanchise.

Kudos to my friend Nico who found this hilarious video by the SMBC Theater. I’ve been collecting articles, photos, memes and blog post about geek or nerd girls for a while now. Women who are into geekdom, especially if they are pretty or do sexy cosplay, are accused by some of being “fake geek girls” and of only pretending to like geekdom to get the attention of men.
