FAKE GEEK GUYS: A MESSAGE TO MEN ABOUT SEXUAL HARASSMENT
By Andy Khouri
“I think this woman is wrong about something on the Internet. Clearly my best course of action is to threaten her with rape.”
That’s crazy talk, right? So why does it happen all the time?
Honest question, dudes.
That women are harassed online is not news. That women in comics and the broader fandom cultures are harassed online is not news. That these women are routinely transmitted anonymous messages describing graphic sexual violence perpetrated upon them for transgressions as grave as not liking a thing… that is actually news to me, and it’s probably news to a lot of you guys reading this.
So what do we do about it?
This.

gamergirlfriends:

fear my power

robotmoxie asked: i won't have my internet connection in a few minutes but i saw your posts on my dash (i used to have the url storywinter) and i just wanted to say again that you are cool and i'm glad i followed and i wanted to send something pleasant since i saw those anons being turds

Awww you’re so sweet! Anons will be anons, but kindness like this is why I keep doing what I do. However sporadically I do it, haha.

Thank you for your words. :D They mean a lot!

I really enjoy all these anons who apparently skimmed over like, half a text post heading before deciding this tumblr was about hating dudes.

There aren’t enough “missed the point” .jpgs in the world.

Anonymous asked: So when a guy that is well-intentioned tries to befriend a girl before dating her, he is secretly manipulative, but a person should never judge girls in geekdom no matter what. I see what you did there.

Anonymous asked: I just want to say one thing. Not all gamer dudes are fat weirdos who live with their mothers and need to be "exposed".

No one said they were? And that’s not even the point of this tumblr? But thanks for your input?

Talking about fans of Lara is an interesting thing, because she’s a whole new woman now, you know? She was an icon that was really useful for women to own in the nineties and later, even though she was very heavily geared toward a male audience at the time. But the audience evolves, the business evolves, and she’s a new person now. Fans of the game are invested in her heroics, they appreciate that she’s not hypersexualized, that she’s more sophisticated and human. And maybe you lose some of the dudes who didn’t want that, but I believe Square Enix made that choice to make a better character. You know, also with Buffy, things evolve. The version of feminism that’s presented through a fantasy character is different now than it was in 1998, when we first started doing the comics. There’ve been a couple things in the comics that I’ve had to steer the writers and artists away from, to which they’ve very legitimately responded, “But wasn’t that in the show?” And it was, but things change. This is the Buffy of 2014 (or whatever year it is in the comic itself, shhhh), and this is the Lara of 2014, and I’m proud of that. I like presenting these images of heroines, as opposed to some of the other ones in our industry.

Superiority isn't anyone's best color.

Will likely also touch on/discuss geek feminism, misogyny, Nice Guys, slut shaming, body image, sexism, etc.
