All manner of scifi/fantasy/nerdness: Roleplaying, comic books, .... okay, so mainly just RPGs & comic books. And Dr. Who. And Firefly. And comic books. And role-playing games. And Community. And Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And comic books. And RPGs. And Avengers. And RPGS. And whatever else amuses me today...

I’m not going to go on a slut-shaming rant here or gripe about cosplayers, because that’s uncalled for and not the point.
I am going to say that it seems unnecessarily hyper-sexualized and almost one-dimensional. I feel like there should be some “reclaiming the nerd girls tag” movement to bring some more balance to it.
…whoa, I saw that tag like… now, for the first time. ò_ò Pretty sad.
I mean, everyone has the right to do (and photograph) whatever he or she likes, but I think I’m pretty nerdy and… I don’t look like that… or dress like that… or anything like that…
I don’t know, maybe I’m… prude? Am I? I don’t know, I’m confused now. O_o
Well now I’m sad I brought it up. I definitely didn’t want to bother the awesome nerd girls I know. I guess what I’m really wondering is how to “correct” this. The “geek girls” tag isn’t much better.
Should everything I tag with “nerd” or “nerd culture” or “nerd world problems” also be tagged with “nerd girls?”
Should the tag be used strictly for discussions on how nerd culture effects girls?
Mainly I just want to start tagging things “nerd girls,” but not sure what to tag with it. Besides this conversation.
