Kickstart This: “The Women of Geekdom” 2013 Calendar
Whenever we hear about geek girl pin-ups, we’ll admit, we get a little skeptical. ‘Oh boy,’ we say to ourselves. ‘More objectification of women aimed at the stereotypical lonely male nerd. Everybody loses.’ So why are we talking about a geek girl calendar? Because these particular women are awesome, that’s why.
Incredibly talented women of all types are dressing up as their favorite geeky characters for the Women of Geekdom calendar. Podcasters, writers, gamers, cosplayers and artists, the calendar has a pretty diverse set of ladies.
…each participant would dress up as their favorite character from various fictions: Movies, TV, Comics, Novels, Video Games and RPGS. This calendar will not only try to showcase a diverse section of fandoms but also show the diverse types of women that love these shows, books and games. This will be a professionally printed, high quality full color calendar featuring these lovely ladies as they show off their geek pride.
Nary a controller licker to be found among them. The calendar looks like it will showcase women who are nerdy, beautiful, and sexy without being objectified. What’s more, project leader Shaun Rosado is open to the idea of a geek boy calendar next year if this takes off. I politely request a Zevran.
There’s only a few days left to fund the project! Head on over to Kickstarter now!
