San Diego Comic Con - Can Girls Be Geeks?
The San Diego Comic Con "triggered" the anxiety of a man who saw a horror movie trailer playing at a booth.
Hat tip to Roosh's forum:
The video that triggered feels is below:
Years ago I attended a Comic conference in Dallas with my son who was then 10 years old. I was pretty shocked. I was expecting maybe a few hundred people with kids browsing Archie comics. Instead I found that these conferences mostly attract adults with a weird mix of fantasy and sexual themes. The people who attend pride themselves as being part of the "geek" culture.
When I was younger, "geek" suggested someone who was smart and had an academic interest in math or science. Now the term "geek" seems to include anyone with a weird fetish - such as collecting ponies.
One of these pony boys was at such a conference attending a "speed dating" session for geeks. The fact that he still lives with his parents and collects toy ponies did not seem to work at attracting girls. Not even "geeky" girls like this guy.
But I am not really sure what defines a girl as a "geek". It seems that if a girl plays video games that meets the requirement of being a geek.
