Oh, You Sexy Geek! Our 2011 SDCC Panel

"We're putting a team together."

It seems like nerd/geek girls have been a hot topic lately between websites posting opinions on how celebrity women “pander” to men by faking their nerdiness and discussing how women dressing in scantily clad costumes are anti-feminist. Well, I’ve put together a dynamite group of talented ladies and gentleman to discuss all of this and more. Don’t miss it!

What would YOU like me to ask these panelists?

When: Thursday, 7/21. 10:45-11:45 a.m.
Where: San Diego Comic-Con, Convention Center Room 6A.
What: Convention panel.
Why: That’s a long answer, story for another day.

Exactly What: Does displaying the sexiness of fangirls benefit or demean them? When geek girls show off, are they liberating themselves or pandering to men? Do some “fake fangirls” blend sex appeal with nerdiness just to appeal to the growing geek/nerd market, or is that question itself unfair? How about sexy fanboys? And what’s up with all the Slave Leias? The Action Flick Chick asks these great panelists whether fans can be sexy and geeky at the same time – and if they should!
