Upworthy shared this video, and I wanted to share it with all of you. Although I certainly spend a lot of time here talking about porn and sex, I also spend a certain amount of it talking about gender and about my own personal interests (outside of porn, sex and gender, of course) including some of my geekier proclivities. Luckily, I haven’t been subject of much speculation on whether or not I’m geeky enough, but it’s tremendously common for women, especially those in sexier professions.
This song is pretty and catchy, but it’s the smiling faces of proud geek girls who really make it, and the simple defiance that they don’t have to prove anything. It’s nice to have passions and interests and to feel a sense of community, and to have people bully you and tell you that you can’t really love what you love because you’re a girl (or you’re pretty/sexy/seem cool…) is a real shame.
On top of the lovely music by The Doubleclicks and some very special geek guest stars, it’s just a lovely message. What do you take from it? Do you think anyone can be a geek? They do say that we shall inherit the earth. :P
