A CHALLENGER APPEARS FOR THE “FAKE GEEK GIRL”
Fake Geek Girl Detector
''Worried a girl you know might be a fake gamer? A faux
geek? A "gurrlll gaaamerrr" rather than a girl who plays video games?
Is there a girl you know that you suspect may only be in to Farmville? Does she
not "look like a gamer"? Does she only play (insert games you don't
respect here), but not whatever games you think "real" gamers
Now here's a helpful test that will let you figure out who is just preying on
pop culture, and who is a real nerd!
Obviously, this test is just for those of you
who are automatically suspicious of women and girls being fakers, and need them
to prove that they are nerdy enough.''

''If you were less of an asshole, had a better opinion of women and didn’t draw them like tits with heads, maybe more women would be interested in your art. Maybe they’d spend more time at your booth than in front of it. And maybe they’re “powers of evil” would be used as a force for good.How about you spend less time worrying about trying to change them and more time working on yourself? '' sur Tumblr

On Bleeding Cool, 114 commentaires, ''But this has taken a turn that is disturbing. First of all being attacked SO viciously and repeatedly, with exactly the same kind of name calling and insults that I was being accused of? That was just weird. But then, People started threatening physical violence, like putting a brick to my skull, and asking what my Con schedule was so they could beat me up or throw paint and blood all over me and my Art displayed on the table. As if that were not enough? Now its gone really to the back of beyond. People are asking that I be drummed out of the Comics Industry all together, encouraging others to boycott my work, and then today, sending personal emails to me announcing that petitions have been started, and letter writing campaigns begun to Comic Book Conventions to Ban me for life and NEVER invite me again. ” Taking the bread OFF your table.”''

An Important Public Service Announcement About Fake Geek Girls: The Emotional Economics of Scarcity, sur Colleen Doran' Distant Soil website, ''Say kids, I've been in this comics business for over 20 years, and I was accused of being a fake geek by men and some very insecure women more times than I can remember, and recently, too.There were those jerks who picked on me relentlessly during my early years in SF fandom, because I had the temerity to be a blonde girl, therefore I must be intensely stupid and talentless.''
Women Write About Comics, Tony Harris vs. Cosplayers, and the Fake Problem of the Fake Geek Girl, que 12 réponses, mais des idées intéressantes et des hypothèses sur les raisons de l'intensité des attaques envers les femmes. ''As a community, geeks are moving on. And maybe that’s why attacks by sexist bottom feeders are getting worse. The kind of total war harassment campaign that Anita Sarkeesian experienced is becoming more, not less common. Even as the conversation moves forward, with the basic feminist groundwork assumed (yes, women read comics; yes, women game; yes, there is a problem with men complaining about ‘fake’ geek girls), the pushback is getting fiercer. Even crossing over into criminal territory.''

The Responses to the Response To My 'Booth Babes' Piece on CNN
Overheard on CNN.com: Readers take issue with 'booth babes' she-geek stereotypes, ''Joe Peacock's latest opinion piece for CNN Geek Out caused quite an uproar. We saw more than 700 comments and at least hundreds of tweets about the article, which expressed a complex point of view blasting the phenomenon of beautiful "booth babes" at fan conventions including San Diego Comic-Con. At the same time, Peacock also said he supports women's increased acceptance within geek society.''
