Interviewer Swaps Usual Convention Questions To Find The Real Fake Geeks [VIDEO]

Jennifer Landa decided to do some investigative journalism at San Diego Comic-Con to sort out this whole “fake geek” issue. And she enlisted help from our good friends Andre Meadows and Dr. Andrea Letamendi!

I never recommend reading the comments but I find it hilarious several folks on YouTube missed the satire part of this whole thing. For instance: “Yeah, I hate to break it to you, but most of the female cosplayers aren’t any nerdier or geekier than the males you accuse of fake nerdom. I find your video incredibly derisive and insulting.” Ah, life.

We’ve compiled enough of our favorite photos of ladies proving they have nothing to prove to cover a whole spectrum of geeky interests and experiences.

Geek Girl Band “The Doubleclicks” Need Your Help With Their Music Video!

The Doubleclicks, nerdy musician extraordinaires, have been repping the ladies in the nerdoverse since their inception. We’ve mentioned them before.

Now, they need some people to help them out.

For their music video “Nothing to Prove” (a song about being a girl geek even when there are haters hating left and right), they are crowdsourcing footage of women holding up signs talking about what got them into geek culture in the first place, or about what sort of nerd they are. Check out the song above, and go to their website to see what you can do to contribute to the project.

Us “fake geek girls” have to stick together!

President Obama Confuses Star Trek & Star Wars, is a Fake Geek Girl

We’ve previously confirmed the United States has the geekiest administration in history but earlier today we found out we might have been duped! President Barack Obama is not a “real” geek as we assumed but a horrifying Fake Geek Girl!! While speaking on his sequester plan, the President was asked why he can’t force Republicans and Democrats to cooperate by locking them all in a room together. He replied, “The fact that they don’t take it means that I should somehow do a Jedi Mind Meld with these folks and convince them to do what’s right.” Big mistake, Mr. President. But the White House was quick to respond with the above image tweeted from their official Twitter account and www.WH.gov/JediMindMeld smartly redirects to “What You Need To Know About The Sequester.”
