Afternoon Links: They Are Geek Girls, They Are Legion

Basking in the afterglow of Comic-Con, it’s time to meditate on the importance of the geek. The music video above was the creation of The Doubleclicks, a pair of sisters who “sing about Dungeons & Dragons, dinosaurs, and Mr. Darcy,” and defend female dorks from people who apparently roam around policing nerd impersonators.
