Geeks come in many different shapes and sizes, with many variations on the theme in between. We all do our best to stand up for what we love and wave our geek flags proudly, but sometimes in that effort others don’t always understand how we choose to fight for our nerdy rights.
Such was that case this last week when Joe Peacock wrote a passionate article about “posers” at conventions like SDCC. This caught a lot of heat when John Scalzi wrote a retort, flaming Peacock about his harsh judgement. Afterwards, Joe Peacock wrote several more articles defending himself from other attacks.
This week Anthony, Daryck, Elizabeth, and Leland from Movie Issues take on the topic of “Fake Geek Girls”, if they exist, and the whole mess of Mr. Peacock vs. The Internet.
