Fake Geek Girl

You know those women who call themselves geeks & pretend to like sci-fi/fantasy just so that they can get attention that they otherwise wouldn't get. They don't exist, oh, except for this one:

"I, Amy McCarthy, am an affront to geek girls everywhere. Maybe a disgrace. Either way, I feel like it’s finally time that I come out and say it: I really hate all of the science-fiction and fantasy entertainment all my fellow geek girls seem to love so very much."

Why does she even bother to call herself a geek? Because she likes The Hunger Games? I am not a horor movie fan. I like Saw & Hellraiser movies but that does not make me a horor movie fan & I would never call myself that.

You started watching Doctor Who because the doctor is cute? You think Chris Hemsworth is hot in Thor. Awesome, enjoy, but for god's sake don't call yourself a geek. Just because you like a couple of things does not mean it's ok to call yourself a geek. But that doesn't stop this girl, you see, she also likes the Avengers:

"I’ll watch "The Avengers" to see cute boys in tight pants, but I never enjoy the actual movie."

Yup, fake geek girls don't exist.
