the magic of pen & pixel
The female gamers who are targeted with “fake geek girl” accusations are comfortable with their femininity and sexuality—which antisocial male nerds and self-loathing female nerds perceive as a threat—and enjoy well-rounded social lives beyond their hobbies. On the other hand, female gamers who are desperate to separate themselves from “fake geek girls” compensate by entrenching themselves so deeply into gamer culture that they develop unhealthy emotional investments in the hobby, often to the point where they become verbally abusive and channel their embarrassingly transparent insecurities into middle school quality doodles that regularly assert their own superiority to other women.
A good cartoon.

crystallizes so many thoughts i’ve had about this — i was temporarily driven to complete apathy about a lot of issues i care about just because it had become so exhausting to speak with the people who i ostensibly agreed with. disconnecting from the internet’s alleged “activism” circles has changed this greatly. pretty counter-intuitive, but this “gatekeeper” dynamic is not a healthy one for progress or social activism in general
their older stuff, like before they knew how to play their instruments. when they were like eleven or twelve years old
i like their older stuff, like their book reports about “to kill a mockingbird” and their excited journal entries about video games and teenage mutant ninja turtles

Cards Against Humanity needs your help to do what you best: find pornography on the internet.
Some background: This year our friends at Giant Bomb rented a professional studio to shoot their live after-hours E3 coverage in, and it turned out to be one of the weirdest places we’ve ever seen.
The studio included a number of half-assed sets like a police station, a hospital room, a prison shower, a law office, a bar, and numerous bedrooms.
Of course we all made lots of jokes about how these sets were probably used for porn, but everything took a dramatic turn when Nathan Vella found an annotated porn script labeled:
Ep 3 - Yellow Revisions - 03/18/2013
The implications here are staggering. We’re pretty sure that such video game luminaries as Jonathan Blow, Cliff Bleszinski, Adam Boyes, and Vinny Caravella used fake desks and beds that hosted vigorous pornographic ball-slapping sex just days or even hours earlier.
Here’s the complete script as a PDF. What we know so far:
- This is the second episode of a porn series
- It shot on 03/18/2013
- Characters include Dylan, Nick, Gio, Mackenzie, Angela, Penny, Ted, Darrington, and Dean Parker
- Locations include “Kelly’s Bar,” and “Nick’s Campus Apartment”
We’re putting up a $100 bounty for the first person who can find us video of this script or video from another episode of this series that uses the same sets. If you find it, email us at CardsAgainstHumanity+PornScript@gmail.com.
