Note To NYT: Nerdy Girls Exist!

As some of you may have heard, there's a critic at The New York Times, who wrote a review of the new Game of Thrones TV Series. Not only did she somehow manage to get a review published without discussing the plot, the characters, the setting, the design or the acting in said show but she also managed to insult the audience of Sex In The City, fantasy fans in general and female fantasy fans in particular by stating that the whole series is "boys fiction" which no woman could possibly enjoy unless she's watching to oogling all the hot men on the cast.

Now, I don't need to say anything about how stupid and insulting this is on every level. Fellow Fanzing alumnus Alan Kistler has written a lovely rebuttal to the original article that I think you all should read. But since I've seen a lot of anger raised over this issue... I figure we could all use a good laugh.

And I remembered this video from a few years ago that dealt with this very topic of the existence of nerdy girls existing. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.


  1. ... Unfortunately the rebuttal doesn't seem to want to work.

  2. Won't scroll down past the picture for me. No further text. Even if I try going to the main website and tricking it. Haaates me.
