A L B on “Fake Geek Girls”

This is the video that introduced me to the wonderful Angelina L B, and which helped me see that casual sexism you encounter in comic book shops and at conventions had moved beyond basic social ineptness and had become a large problem for the entire community.

I think I had seen her videos before, but the super-girly appearance made me think that I was definitely not her target demographic. I didn’t think less of her, just that her videos were probably not my thing. But she was so articulate in defining just what was wrong with an industry that I love and that I wanted my girls to love, that I became an immediate fan.

There is a bit of language in here that is not appropriate for younger ears, but the message is something that everyone should hear.
