Friday Videos Love Girls - All The Girls

It's been a great week for videos of awesomeness. Much like the $1 Shave Club viral marketing video, the Camp Gyno video, advertising the HelloFlo monthly service which mails period supplies to your door on your schedule, is snort-laugh worthy:

As many of you said in your email messages about this video, yes, that girl who knew everything TOTALLY existed in each cabin. (It wasn't me, alas.)

But wait, there's more awesome girl things: 

Thank you to the many folks who also sent me this piece of wonderful, Nothing to Prove by the Doubleclicks – about Geek Girls and douchebaggery.

Also: BUGS! BUGS!! 

I hope your weekend is filled with funny and awesome things!

    I absolutely love the “Nothing to Prove” video (up there with Weezer’s “Pork and Beans”).  Go geek girls!  And for those who don’t know John Kovalic’s cartooning, check out http://www.dorktower.com

    Love Camp Gyno – but sweetie, if you tell me to suck it up while I’m having cramps, Imma gonna have to hurt you.

    Science question – in my younger days, they told us not to use tampons until we were older because of Toxic Shock Syndrome or something.  Is that still the thing they tell kids, or are we past that now?

    @CarrieS: It not really an issue. Most TSS deaths thst happened in the 80s were circumstancial though a high absorbment tampon was recalled and taken off thr market.

    As a geek girl and ESPECIALLY as a budding SF/F writer, I have been paying very close attention to the whole Fake Geek Girls explosion that’s been going on this year. I love the Doubleclicks’ response, I love it like KITTENS!

    (And the Doubleclicks are awesome in general and you should buy their music. My wife who runs the music festival at Norwescon has had them come to our convention and I’ve had the pleasure of hearing them live. If you like geek-friendly music and humor and ukeleles, highly, HIGHLY recommended!)

    @CarrieS: I agree about the imminent danger to anyone telling me to suck it up at that point. No woman/girl would dream of saying it to another because her turn will, inexorably, come next. Most men think it, I’d wager, but I could appreciate the humor in the context of young-camper-as-drill-sergeant.

    What I absolutely loved, however—besides swinging a tampon around by its string—was her whispered “This is your life from now on.” Oh, man, truer words and all that. As a post-menopausal woman, I can still get giggly when I remember that I am free, done, see ya, hasta never. What a relief.

    Loved the geek girls video!  I especially liked the lady with the sign that read “Don’t tell my daughters that Legos, Robots, and Superheroes are for boys”.  While I don’t have daughters, I do try to educate my two sons on gender equality (it’s not going to get better until the group imposing the inequality learn better).  I tell them all the time “Toys don’t have genders!” (and neither do TV shows, games, etc.).  There are no “girl toys” or “boy toys”, just toys and people who enjoy them (‘cause we grown-ups still enjoy our action figures too!).

    Who is the lady with the sign “I use a gender-neutral pen name…” (just curious who the author is)?  It reminds of J.K. Rowling who invented a middle initial at the publisher’s insistence she use her initials to hide her gender. Link  That one in particular really gets me.  I have never had my two boys reject a book because it was written by a woman (thank goodness!).  Hopefully it signals a change in the next generation, and not just my awesome parenting skills!

    Vicki @ #7: That author with the “I use a gender-neutral pen name…” sign is J.M. Frey. I looked her up myself. She’s got one novel published via Dragon Moon Press, called Triptych. I made a point of buying it.

    @Darlynne:  SING it sistah!  Life after menopause has been awesome!  As for the girl geek thing – I was in a salon where I used to get facials buying skin care stuff.  I’d been a customer for a long time and the owner was talking to some other women at the counter.  She knew I was a science girl.  So instead of including me in the conversation she took the product info out of the package and handed it to me saying, “Here.  YOU like science…” and went on with her conversation.

    Never went back and I buy my stuff on eBay for half the price.  I like MATH too, bitch.

    Both of these videos are great. I remember the days when my friends who got their periods early seemed so grown up and full of wisdom. They never got big heads over it, though. :) And the geek-girl video is so fantastic, I’ve watched it three times today. It makes me all misty with geeky joy.

    Plus, The Doubleclicks have a Mr. Darcy song! Which is extra worth it just for the message “Not every asshole has a heart of gold.” So, so true.

    Camp Gyno was hilarious; heard about it on the news this AM.  But Geek Girls rock!  Although I can’t actually say that, as a geek girl (um, woman), I have experienced the same. My geeky interactions have always been pretty gender neutral.  I don’t go to Cons and such, so maybe I’ve been protected from the insults inferred by the video.  I’m also a bit older than the women portrayed in the video, so perhaps it’s a generational thing?  I will say the cameo by uber geek Will Wheaton was a nice touch.

    The HelloFlo video is sort of sad. Check out Vinnie’s tampon cases and cool swag for a much cooler take: http://www.tamponcase.com
