Once again it’s Cyber Monday, the tech industry’s and the online retailers’ response and/or counter to Black Friday. So too, once again it’s time for Reflections From A Murky Pond to showcase some fine geek girls – 45 of them this year. 😀
This year, however, along with presenting a much larger gallery of Cyber Monday geek girls, I’m going to wax a little sociological. Geek Girls are a great benefit to Western Society. Like Velmas in cosplay, they reject certain norms for both appropriate gender-based activities – which were never truly accurate – and beauty/fashion standards.
Also, the simple fact that there is a market for Geek Girls, both real and fabricated for film, shows a broadening of standards for men. This is especially true of the latter, fabricated or “professional” Geek Girls. It’s a fine thing that geeks/nerds/tech-heads are now considered a valid market segment for prurience/pornography and that the successful model for them is one with similar interests as opposed to just being “hot.”
