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.”
With Dragon*Con being a hybrid convention these days – limited and restricted in-person attendance combined with a large a quite robust, all things being considered, virtual reach – here’s some beautiful ideas for those at home.
Yeah, just the clothing choices make it so that virtually attending Dragon*Con is A-OK. It might even be better in some ways than going in-person. 😉
I’m not sure how well Cyber Monday is going to go this year. On one hand, the coronavirus has made people a lot more interested in computers, electronics, and digital content. On the other, in many locked-down regions, a lot of people have lost their livelihoods.
But … We can, if we put aside fears of contagion, turn to our lovely geek girls for a hot yet nerdy Cyber Monday extravaganza. 😉
