Fake Geek Girls
I might be late on the issue but I've heard a lot about this issue and wanted to weigh in in it.
Listen I think both sides are misrepresenting each other due to a vocal minority. There is a small minority of "geek" guys who think that all women are faking it and there is a small minority of "geek" women who are faking it. I'd say that the greivance that the majority of "geek" guys have is that because of geek culture becoming popular there are people jumping on to it who genuinely don't actually care about it like anything that gets popular. Because of the fact that gaming and comics have been largely male it is more noticible when women join and therefore you get people who have sunk a part of their life into something angry over the fact that people are joining in on something that means a lot to them just so they can feel like they're a part of it without putting in any effort to be a part of it. The grievence on the other side is that plenty of people have put in the effort and feel it unfair that people look at them as if they haven't. To clarify what I mean by putting in the effort is not a specific thing(Like having to have read a certain number of issues or played a certain number of games), putting in the effort is merely being genuinely caring about the subject enough to take part in it on at least a base level(so reading comics or playing video games more than casually).
TLDR One Side is mad because people are jumping on the bandwagon just to get attention, and in the process making light of something they've put a lot of time and effort into.
The other side is mad because they have put in the effort but are being looked at like they haven't
The Solution... There isn't one, Geek culture is a culture defined by being niche and uncool and so as it changes into something that is popular there are going to be some problems. So all we can do is wait until geek culture changes in a way that makes it no longer defined by being niche.
If you're a guy who's angry about all the fake geek girls or a girl angry that she's being looked at like she's not a real geek and you really just want a solution, get over it there are plenty of worse things going on right now and i'm sure you can relax and just wait it out. There are still good games and comics coming out, and to prove that I am going to make a list of some good games and comics(that have come out in 2017) to keep you busy.
Some games are, Zelda Breath of the wild, Mario Odyssey, Horizon Zero Dawn, Hollow Knight, Dark Souls III The ringed City(this is DLC but it, and the whole game, was amazing), Resi 7, That friday the 13th game looked like fun, Nier Automata, So many goddamn indie games, etc,
Comics(just a warning I haven't been read much Marvel this year), Mister Miracle, Dark Knights Metal, Superman, I've heard The Wildstorm is pretty good, Kill or be killed, Doom Patrol, Saga(I don't get it), The Unworthy Thor, etc.
And these are just the ones from this year that I remembered, there are plenty more this year and plenty more from the past.
If you disagree or agree I'd love to hear it, I genuinely would like to know where the majority of people stand on this issue and whether or not anybody agrees with me.
