Fandom Sickness – Episode 2

Hello everyone, and welcome to another episode of Fandom Sickness, wherein I call out the silent enablers who do nothing, say nothing, to help women who are sexually harassed at conventions.

This came about after hearing of yet another groping done at the SDCC this year, which you can read here.

As for some of the things I talk about in the video?

Lucille Ball SAVED Star Trek before it was ever on the air.

The Scarlet Pimpernel.

The Fake Geek Girl

In light of my being too damn sick to do anything this week, I present to you a little something else…

Fake Geek Girl, DC?

Fake Geek Girl

Well, we all know it’s bullshit, but frankly, it’s some insensitive shit to see this in the back of comics that men and women pay good money for. One fan in particular, who made a post over at The Mary Sue found this in the back of her issue of Batman.

But, see, other people know it’s bullshit too, and one person in particular who brought us forth just WHY we should fear fake geek girls.

It’s a bit white bread, but you know what? The satire is dead on, and I can’t help but love a well-placed shot at Aquaman.

Because seriously, he sucks.

Namor is so much better.
