Ah, glorious intolerance in geek-culture. Hello again.

There’s a pressing, and particularly relevant argument that geek and gamer culture inherently objectifies women and corners them in a lose-lose situation almost 99% of the time, rendering the field pretty male-dominated. You’ve also probably heard of the internalized misogyny coming from girls a lot of the time — perpetuating the notion that being “nerdy” is somehow superior to being anything else, as if it’s exclusive to only one category. This video is an interesting interpretation that tries to present both sides. Be sure to watch until the very end.
