I read this post on Stargazing today and was thoroughly irritated. From Stargazing:
"This is somewhat annoying. Someone at Film Drunk decided that women have to be lying when they describe themselves at science-fiction/comicbook fans and that they only do it to pander to men/boys. Which makes sense, because why else would women do anything? Am I right?"
Film Drunk even put together a reel of clips from talk shows with hot actresses confessing their nerdiness. Some of them, ya, I think they might be saying they like Star Wars just to help promote whatever movie they're in, but others seem really genuine... like when Rosario Dawson spoke Klingon or Megan Fox started naming off cartoonists.
Besides that... I think I do okay in the looks department (when I'm not pregnant or recovering from pregnancy) and I'm a geek. Just read all the Sci-fi/Fantasy/etc stuff I have all over this blog. It's not like I "pandered" to my geeky, D&D loving husband with talk of Star Trek and comic books (FYI, he admits that I know more about the Marvel Universe than he does). It's not like I don't have a hot, tall, blonde friend who loves Dragon Age and the recently released Dragon Age II (they're Xbox games). Who are these "Film Drunk" people to decide hot chicks can't be geeks? Can't women have diverse interests? Why are they trying to place all attractive women in a box? It just irritated me... a lot.
