Fake Geek Girls
Apparently, the world is abuzz because there’s a meme about a “Fake Geek Girl”. And now all these geek women are mad, I guess because guys don’t want to let them in the “geek” club (insinuating that there’s no way they’re REALLY geeks). Buzzfeed has a whole “article” about it here.
They’ve got it all wrong.
The Fake Geek Girl meme wasn’t created to call out women geeks. It’s making fun of women who obviously are NOT geeks who SAY they’re geeks so that geek guys will like them. See, they’re so “hot” that normally, geek guys wouldn’t even bother fantasizing about them. Totally unattainable. But someone like Megan Fox says she like Star Wars or something like that, or Katy Perry saying she farts in bed… well, NOW “they’re like me! Geeky!” They’re attainable. So, instead of just the jocks and burnouts and everybody else thinking she’s hot, now she’s got EVERYBODY fawning over her.
THAT is a fake geek girl.
Now, what Buzzfeed is talking about? A real geek girl? I’m down with that. We all are. Just don’t say that you like geeky things just because you think that’s what I want to hear.
