This is what it would feel like if nerdy girls were as creepy as nerdy guys.
Stop asking if I'm slutty Khal Drogo! That's just how Khal Drogo dresses.
If you've been on the Internet or talked to a woman lately, you may have noticed that female comic book fans (and gamer girls, for that matter), are getting a bit fed up with the lazy, angry misogyny that still seems permissive in hardcore nerddom. Among those fed-up geeks is the very funny Gaby Dunn, who stars in this video from BuzzFeed Yellow with the put-upon Dave Child, and they flip the script so you can see just how bizarre it sounds when one gender accuses the other of liking fantasy stories about outsiders who gain the power to fight for justice...just to be sexually acceptable.
If you need proof (and I know a lot of you do) that this happens, consider there are such things as entire Tumblrs devoted to cataloging which comic book stores across America make women feel safe. Also consider this f-ing thing.
