A common, unfortunate assumption with a lot of female cosplayers is that they just do cosplay for 'attention' (amongst other things)—so it's kind of startling, if not funny at times to see that script switched by jenniferlanda here.

But! To be fair, male cosplayers are way less visible in the cosplay world—so while they may not get questioned about their geek cred in the same way, they do have their own share of struggles within that community. Worth keeping in mind....but yeah. Asking people to prove their geek cred is bullshit, regardless of gender.

And just in case this needs to be said: the video is satire, partially a response to articles like this. That's more obvious if you actually get to the end, though.

Dear fake geeks, go away? [jenniferlanda]
