Rape Culture, Slut Shaming and the Media

Warning! Serious topic matter & much swearing to follow: I watched the CNN coverage yesterday on the Steubenville, OH rape trial and was disgusted.  Not just by what these boys did but how the reporter, Poppy Harlow, was just so saddened by the tragedy that had befallen…the two boys convicted of rape!  Are you fucking […]

King of the Nerds Must Die or TBS WTF Were You Thinking??

I am pissed.  I know, great shocker there, but this time I really mean it. So back in the early days of planning GeekGirlCon, we were often contacted by various organizations wanting to make alliances.  That’s totally fine but one of those contacts was a casting call for a little show called King of the […]

Parent Television Council hates The Walking Dead…so what?

Wow…the Parent Television Council thinks The Walking Dead is brutal, violent and inappropriate for children.  And after that blinding flash of the obvious… NO FUCKING SHIT! It’s called The Walking Dead!  It’s not called The Puppy and Kitten Hour!  Hell, I was HAPPY that season three was a bit more bloody and violent than the […]

50 Shades of What The Frak Did I Just Read????

The things that pop into my head…

On my walk this morning, I couldn’t help but let my mind wander back to a simpler time.  Like when I was a kid and wearing shoes was optional for at least three months a year.  Sure my feet got dirty but that’s what the garden hose was for. Now I know a bunch of […]

Flashbacks & other musings…

So I just ran across this video on YouTube yesterday (don’t know HOW I missed this!) and it really spoke to me. This brought back memories of school and how I tried desperately to not be identified as a geek in order to fit in.  Of course, thanks to the lovely people of GeekGirlCon and […]
