Geek and Gamer Girls Song - Watch more Funny Videos
The members of Team Unicorn are Michele Boyd, Clare Grant, Milynn Sarley, and Rileah Vanderbilt.
Yes, you did hear a cornucopia of geeky and gaming shout outs. Anime, Browncoats, Star Trek? I definitely approve! I also liked the visual satire of the well-known "female gamer surrounded by controllers" image, but will admit that I'm tired of gaming and geekery becoming yet another realm where women are pitted against each other in some "Hot or Not" contest. Yes, you can be attractive and game. Sure, you can be an attractive geek. And while I completely agree with Michele Boyd when she tweeted:
"I think the best responses we're getting are from other geeks who also love being GIRLS. Makeup & gaming are not mutually exclusive!"The majority of mainstream images I see these days referring to women who game feature the "traditionally attractive, makeup wearing" types. You can be attractive without wearing makeup or tight, revealing clothing, right? Granted, the entertainment industry isn't particularly known for promoting or celebrating diversity - and actresses are held to a very severe standard of beauty, but I'd still like to see more people that look like me and my friends. We can't all look like Team Unicorn, Felicia Day, or Olivia Munn - but we're awesome geeks and gamers just the same. Besides, does my hotness really matter while I'm dominating you in Team Fortress 2?
