Gamer Momma to the Rescue! by jakface Gamer Momma to the Rescue! by jakface
I’ve seen my share of “fake geek girl” shaming, and just thought having a Fairy Gamer Momma to come to the rescue would be nice. I know they exist, I’ve met plenty who are amazing and could beat my ass at any version of Mario Kart. Give the Gamer Momma in your life a big hug! :D

I don't care if she never played the game.  A girl who pays that much attention to a game to cosplay as a character get's a tip of the hat from me.

I would totally pay for a comic series about the adventures of Gamer Momma and Nerd Girl.

Oh, and speaking as a gamer mum to some of the commenters... who the hell wrote the law saying shy people aren't allowed to cos play?  Cos I might want to have a go at them too!  Stop and think about how much love and guts go into going out in costume when you're shy before you go and bitch at someone because they need a bit of back-up when someone starts douching on them.

Love the cartoon... and the nostalgia moment for my atari *sigh...* Thanks :)
And also, thanks for the recognition that we were the ones that started it all and we've been here all along.  You have no idea how many under-twenties I meet who think they invented gaming and I'm just some wannabe trying to look cool to my kids.

someone on tumblr added this: "sure, she’s a real gamer girl and she is defensless in front of a random douche and don’t know how to argue back…seems legit !

"I’ve seen my share of “fake geek girl” shaming" is it so difficult to prove that you ARE a gamer ? no it’s not and it wasn’t, you surely humiliated a bunch of bro gamers at the last comicon and you were FAR from being the victim you claim to be

Stop acting like a victim"

 

I have to agree a bit. and it's especially annoying because I DO see gamer girls and cosplay girls (mostly the latter though) doing this for attention, even if they do know about the games and stuff.

I think all cosplayers are looking for attention, don't you? Bullying (and that's basically what "fake geek girl" shaming is) shouldn't happen, regardless of the motives of the person in the amazing costume.

I wish this was my momma XD The amount of times i've had this conversation with my mum is beyond me...

Me: Dya wanna play a game?
Mum: What game?
Me: Skyrim...?
Mum: No.
Me: It'll be fun!
Mum: No.
Me: I'll give you lessons!
Mum: No.
Me: -but-
Mum: No.

She then always gets up and leaves.  D:

I would think any woman confident enough to go out in cosplay should be confident enough to tell idiots to fuck off by herself. However, we do not live in a perfect world and sometimes we do need a friend to remind us that it's okay to tell idiots to fuck off, so yay.

You would think! But lots of people are more shy than you think! Just because they're dressing up in a revealing costume doesn't mean they have the confidence and vocabulary to tell these people exactly what they want to hear. I was like that when I was a bit younger. I love the cosplay community though because I've seen instances where people stand up for eachother and it's awesome. <3

I know what you mean. When I was eighteen I wandered around the town centre in a furry costume after a school fancy-dress party on the principle that if I dared do that my exams should hold no fears confidence-wise. It kind of worked, but now I'm still slightly nervous about ordering in a restaurant for myself :) Confrontation is an awful thing and confidence can be highly situation-specific, so backup is a very good thing.
