Saturday Vids: Feminist Nerdfighting

As many of you, as frequenters of the Internet, probably know, in 2007 young adult author John Green and his brother, an environmental blogger named Hank Green, started a video blog called Brotherhood 2.0. They quickly developed a kickass community of followers, who grew to be called Nerdfighters, who fight against WorldSuck. Fighting against WorldSuck- all of the non-awesomeness in the world- is what we as activists do best. The two brothers always advocate equality of the sexes, respect for different sexual orientations, respect for the environment, and social awareness in their videos. Here are two of my favorites that most strongly relate to these important messages, one about girls not acting dumb to get guys, and another against homophobia.

    I never thought the day would come…but finally my two favorite web things (the fbomb & nerdfighteria) have come together in one place and it’s a beautiful, beautiful combination :) DFTBA!

    DFTBA! Go nerdfighters! I love John Green! In his “Looking for Alaska,” Alaska is an awesome feminist. Check it out.

    @Alex F- they are my two favorite web things as well- once I found the opportunity, I couldn’t help but link them ;)

    Katie, definitely agree with you, LfA was one of my favorite reads a few years ago. These guys are hilarious, can’t believe I didn’t hear about them before this!

    OK I dunno about the giraffe sex thing, but *holds head in shame* I was dumped for Halo when I was 16. I’ve hated army/killing games and the boys who love them every since.

    @Alex: I dumped a guy because he spent more time playing Metroid than with me.

    Later I found out he was planning on telling me he was attracted to men, that I had kinda pressured him into going out with him(because I found his intelligence and nerdy stature sexy) and that he’d never told anyone else, so he was so nervous he thought it’d be easier to avoid me and sink into Metroid.

    Despite all that drama, I think that Samus is an amazing woman who all superheros should be based off of.

    Also, I’m not a big fan of Halo. But don’t you deny me Black Ops.
