Today is the second anniversary of this blog/column, at least its presence here in this space. It had existed for about nine months previous, at it’s first home at Media Gauntlet, and would leave Media Gauntlet not long after I started this blog to promote it. I started the column itself with little more direction than “Write about things from the Geek Girl point of view,” and it grew from there.
In the course of this column we’ve talked about comics, videogames, movies, television, books, sexism, racism, probably a little classism, wrestling, horror, misogyny. It’s honestly been pretty low yield for trolls around here, and I’m ok with that. Not that my banning finger doesn’t get itchy now and then, but I’d really rather not wade through anyone else’s vitriol if I don’t have to.
I’ve talked about why “petty” things like movies and comics are important in the discussion of misogyny, racisms and all other -isms you can come up with.
I’d like to thank Danielle for contributing by reviewing things I either have not the time nor inclination to review. And for being awesome.
I’d like to thank everyone who reads this column and listens to the podcast. I’d like to thank you for your support, and even for calling me out when I’m being a twonk. I’d like to thank you all for raising my blood pressure by sending me things you think bear ripping into, and for lowering it again by being sensible and kind people.
Thank you for visiting my little corner of the ‘net.
