    August 11, 2013 12:19 am This article is laughable. Not for the reason that they bring up shelf porn but just on the grounds that you want to ban it because it uses the word porn? I can be a pretentious shit and talk about why that's bull but I'll just say if you don't like the term. don't use it don't stick shit with people who use it or in extreme cases cut ties with people who use it. it's the internet. it comes with an ignore button.

    June 23, 2013 5:18 am It's because of the stereotype that geeks make money in the future. that all geeks become rich. So in actuality they're implying that the girl is a gold digger. +1 for post -ism society.
    June 23, 2013 4:21 am So I am of two minds here. As a kid it was hard for to read comics because I would have needed them imported into the country and no one ships to my tiny island. As I got older and realised the depth of the comic archive I honestly was too terrified to enter it and it wasn't until the geek culture exploded into the monster it is today that I decided to take a chance - that and to antagonise a friend of mine who was also entering the comic realm. I found that it was actually easier to get help since everyone I know was tugging along like me completely unsure. That's good for people who are actually interested in the source material. On the other hand. it's being used as another tool to negate actual geekiness - the unbridled joy of just devouring something you love regardless of what it entails. It's reshaping geekiness in general and selling it back to the people who loved and nurtured the fandom growing up as well as the overzealous masses who want to latch onto the new thing. It bothers me a lot to see people comment on the actors, producers, movie crew -not that they didn't do a good job mostly - without considering the source and then claiming some highly claimed high spot of geekiness. it's disheartening but if it allows me to wear my geek apparel without worrying if it's going to be stolen or destroyed I say ride out the wave.
