Thanks to the rampant misogyny in geek circles, I have two very distinct impulses when it comes to anything nerdy. The first is to react against the fetishizing of “geek girls” by blending in; I can kick ass and drink Mountain Dew in oversized nerdy t-shirts just as well as any dude. The second is to go as ultra femme as possible and relish in getting my GIRLY PINK GEEKDOM all over their precious red and black manly aesthetic. I’m sure most of you can guess which way I usually end up going.
I had the good fortune to join up with an all-female Dungeons & Dragons campaign last year, and it’s definitely been one of the raddest experiences of my life. I’ve always loved storytelling and acting, so it’s no surprise that I’d be into tabletop RPGs! I’ve rounded up some fun, cute Dungeons & Dragons gear for geek girls and anyone else who appreciates the femme side of geek life.
