Vlog: On Little Girls At Comiccon

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zn-_8kwkvg8

The nerd landscape is changing for the better…

This is my first ever vlog, wherein I talk about my experiences in the nerd community as a human with lady parts. Please feel free to comment about your experiences and if you have any funny stories about schooling the gatekeepers of your respective fandoms, I’d love to hear them!

    Skimmed it for now.

    Video wise I think some cutaway pictures of what you’re talking about would be nice, the music was fitting, you have a clear voice and easy manner. I want to know what that poster says.

    Figuring-out-the-website wise,
    I’d love a longer video description in this post,
    – first vlog etc
    – what topics
    – how you feel about it?
    – toss some pictures in of what you’re talking about?

    and I’ve installed some things that will automatically make a video thumbnail for your feature image, and give you a youtube gallery on your author page. : )

      Thanks! I shall rectify it in the next one. Tbh I thought about cutaway images but I was way too lazy to do it in imovie. ‘Tis not good.

      I’ll fix those other things now though 🙂

      (Also; please and thank you on that installation ’cause it’s awesome.)

    We have some great conventions in Sweden where there’s a quota; at the RPG convention Femcon; only women can be gamemasters and scenario writers. At the small hiking/gaming convention Fjällcon, there’s 9 spots for women and 7 for men, which seem to make for a perfect balance of speaking space (sorry, I don’t know how to say that properly in english, but I’m referring to the fact that women in shared spaces generally get to talk less than men). Not that this is super relevant to your video, I just wanted to share something thoughtworthy about the progressive nerd scene in Sweden.

      I’m so glad to hear that! And you made perfect sense, don’t worry. The esteemed and beloved Amy Poelher calls it ‘conversational real estate’, the term stuck with me. I’ve never heard of such a thing. Sounds a bit like certain parties we have here. They’ll sell gendered tickets so that they get a good ratio.
