This week on Geek Girl Riot we’re causing all kinds of problems…no, wait, actually we’re just pointing them out. Our Rioters are talking the movies, shows, books, and comics they love in spite of them being a whole lotta problematic. Because guess what? You can love something while recognizing its issues and demanding improvement. There, we said it. Come @ us.
Ooh, You Did Wrong! To ease you in, we’re explaining just why it’s so important to call out the problematic things we love. We all like things we probably shouldn’t—or really should for a lot of reasons—but sometimes there’s a problem that needs to be pointed out so it can be fixed. Sherin, Sam, Soma, Day, and Renee dig into the whys and discuss where to draw the line when problematic turns into protest.
It’s a Wall Banger But I Lurve It Ever had a book that’s made you so mad you threw it at the wall? Yup, been there, dented that (sorry, mom!). To close out we’re turning away from the screen and to our shelves, to pick out those books and comics we loved growing up—and new reads we’re digging today—that made us want to go all 1984.
