A short note on the Geek Girl Illuminati shirt/patch - several people have asked if, despite not being or identifying as a Geek Girl, they could wear this shirt. My answer is a resounding YES. I made this shirt as what I hoped was a positive and encouraging response to the way women are sometimes viewed and treated in geek culture. I think of it as the opposite of this shirt. I’m not meaning it to be antagonistic, but I don’t mind if it is a little intimidating.
I chose the phrase “we’ve got your back” because it works on a few levels - for those Geek Girls wearing it, it’s a symbol of encouragement; a celebration of women in comics, gaming, writing, art, cosplay, etc. For those who simply love and appreciate the Geek Girls in their lives and media, “we’ve got your back” means solidarity and is, I hope, an expression of support.
There’s a lot of negativity towards women in geekdom, and there’s understandably the want to scream and yell about how awful it can be. I feel that on a weekly basis at least - for myself or someone I like - but I want to focus on the power that comes from supporting each other and working to make the industry better, bit by bit. I like to think that someone wearing this shirt would come to your table if you looked like you were in trouble, or would intervene at a bar if someone was being a creep, or would speak out online against misogyny, or would just make an effort to seek out and celebrate women’s contributions to the nerd world.
I know that’s a lot to ask from a t-shirt, but that was my thinking when I made it, and I made it inspired by the communities I’ve found both online and off for women in comics. They make me feel powerful!
Plus, MRAs will hate it and it looks pretty badass.

“I’m just surprised and heartened by how obsessively the fans keep track. If you leave a little trail of breadcrumbs, they will follow it and then they will find breadcrumbs you didn’t even leave and demand more breadcrumbs. [Laughs.] That’s been exciting and rewarding and, also, raised the bar for me. Now that I see, “Okay, not only do they find every code, not only do they notice every callback, not only do they catch all of our hints”—a lot of the hints they don’t interpret correctly, but they catch them—they’re also coming up with new theories and noticing things we didn’t intend. I was born on June 18 so we put “618” all over the place in the show just because that’s our go-to number if we need a number. People started to pick up on this, but they weren’t content just to rest with the ones we actually put in there, they started finding hidden 618s that are imaginary, like, the shape of boats from a distance looks like a six and a pillar looks like a one and the letter b, uppercase and upside down looks like an eight. That kind of stuff. I think it’s been really encouraging. The more the fans love it, the more I want to do it. And the more I do it, the more fans want more. [Laughs.] I don’t know—season two might be this meta catastrophe. In the meantime, I’m having so much fun.”

From an interview with Alex Hirsch.

Oh man, this makes me so happy. I’m personally a huge fan of hidden easter eggs and lot’s of continuity in shows, so Alex doing a show like Gravity Falls…well, it’s easy to understand why I’m obsessed enough to make a huge blog about it.

Also, uh, I guess he reads our blogs or something? XDDD HUGE FAN MR. HIRSCH. You’re an inspiration! :D

Doubtful he’s actually ever going to read that but I can dream, right?

Hello again.  It’s nice to meet you. Thank you for A) owning up for it B) for admitting that you were ignorant and have found the error of your way. 

Also don’t blame yourself for the other anons. They made thier choice to send it and you have pretty much nothing to do with it. 

Hi guys.

I would like to reblog this because it takes. guts. to own up to something you did on anon that ended up sparking a controversy and a spiral of anon-hatred, whether you intended that outcome or not.

So often, we hear about the hatred, we hear about the bullshit and the assholes, but I don’t get to see this very often, and I think it’s SUPER IMPORTANT to recognize when people own up to shit or make things right, because that’s what makes human connections work.

Well done.

In a post-Ferguson world, Americans increasingly doubt the notion of colorblind justice.

HOW THE FUCK DID THE PERCENTAGE GO UP FOR WHITE PEOPLE
IN WHAT UNIVERSE DOES A POLICE OFFICER SHOOTING AN UNARMED BLACK KID (AND THEN ATTEMPTING TO COVER IT UP AFTER THE FACT) CONSTITUTE EQUAL TREATMENT IN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM
LIKE WHO LOOKS AT THAT AND GOES “WELL, BEFORE I THOUGHT THAT THERE WAS RACISM IN OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM, BUT THEN THIS SHIT HAPPENED AND NOW I SEE THAT IT’S PERFECTLY EQUAL”
WHAT THE FUCK

This increase can be explained by an interesting social phenomenon called ‘denial.’

They benefit from not knowing.. and from believing in myths. 

Comparing beliefs before and after Michael Brown’s murder and the surrounding revelations of racism that have sprung out of it, white people, as a demographic believe, MORE THAN EVER BEFORE, that the criminal justice system treats whites and blacks equally.That is, MORE white people believe the criminal justice system treats black equally now than they did before Michael Brown’s death.In essence, for white people, blatant systemic oppression and the murder of an unarmed young black man gives them even more reason to believe blacks are treated fairly by the system.This confirms an earlier study that said the more you tell white people that the system is inherently racist, the more they supported harsher punishments for black people: http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2014/08/07/3468368/study-white-people-support-harsher-criminal-laws-if-they-think-more-black-people-are-arrested/Marinate on these inhumanities for a second.
