You can submit your own sign at http://geekgirlvideo.tumblr.com "Fake geeks/real jerks" tees: http://nothingtoprove.spreadshirt.com This song can be downloaded on iTunes & Bandcamp: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/lasers-and-feelings/id666068444 http://thedoubleclicks.bandcamp.com/album/lasers-and-feelings We took submissions for this project on our last nationwide tour & online. We received somewhere between 150-250 geek girl videos, as well as some from some awesome prominent geeks: Kelly Sue Deconnick, Amy Berg, John Scalzi, Josh A. Cagan, Adam Savage, Paul & Storm, Wil Wheaton, Marian Call & more. Thank you to EVERYONE who made this possible! The video was directed and edited by Angela Webber (of the Doubleclicks.) The video concept is by Josh A. Cagan and the Doubleclicks, and was inspired by the book trailer for "Dear Teen Me."

I know it feels good to have a contest you win It would feel even better if I wanted in So women aren't geeks, so is that your conclusion? That this is some secret club based on exclusion? 12-year-old dorks would say you're being selfish And then they'd go write in their journals in Elvish I've got nothing to prove I've got nothing to prove I've got nothing to prove I've got cred but honestly, I shouldn't need it This world needs all kinds of folks to complete it You've got gamers, and artists and comic subscribers Cosplayers, crafters and fan-fiction writers You can stop - never say "fake geek" again Our club needs no bouncers - all who want in get in But go ahead, if you want, to own that role fully I ain't got nothing to prove to a bully! I've got nothing to prove I've got nothing to prove I've got nothing to prove Haters are gonna hate
