Noch ein Nerdvideo: Geekgirls going 08/15

Nachdem ich neulich schon mal eine Nerdhymne gefunden und gepostet habe, heute noch ein anderes Video. Irgendwie cool, aber irgendwie auch nicht. Leider bin ich immer noch im Prüfungsstress, daher hier der Kommentar im Border House Blog (dort gibt es auch noch ein paar Hintergrundinfos zum Video:

There are a lot of things I really enjoy about this video: Starbuck, the validation of having my hobbies name-dropped, the costumes (when they’re not naked). I appreciate that the women who star in the video wrote the song and directed the video themselves; perhaps we can thank Felicia Day for opening up more space for women to contribute to online popular culture.

I usually love corny fanservice, and would really like this video except that I just can’t get over the naked singers with their naughty bits covered by controllers and lightsabers. It is so over-done! My verdict: once again geek girls are fanservice for the stereotypical male gamer and what he supposedly finds attractive. I think it’s pretty well established now that geek girls exist, but I guess we’re stuck in existing to be hot girlfriends of geeks. Can we do something new?
