The video entitled “Nothing To Prove” was uploaded on July 23, 2013 and already has 792,830 hits.
So what constitutes a nerd traditionally? A young boy or a male in general with a huge love of technology, gaming, role playing, and of course you can’t forget comic books and superheros.
Well, the Doubleclicks decided to fire back with a music video featuring geeky women and what they have to say about the stereotype that women can’t enjoy geeky things.
Just check out some of the lyrics:
So women aren’t geeks, so is that your conclusion?
That this is some secret club based on exclusion?
12-year-old dorks would say you’re being selfish
And then they’d go write in their journals in Elvish
The song goes on to say:
I’ve got cred but honestly, I shouldn’t need it
This world needs all kinds of folks to complete it
You’ve got gamers, and artists and comic subscribers
Cosplayers, crafters and fan-fiction writers
So what is the moral of the song? You don’t have to have male parts to be considered a geek. The Doubleclicks are out to prove that women have just as much of a right to be a geek as guys do!
While the video features many women holding up signs with their own messages regarding the issue, the video also brings in some big players.
The Youtube description named a few of the “awesome prominent geeks”: “Kelly Sue Deconnick, Amy Berg, John Scalzi, Josh A. Cagan, Adam Savage, Paul & Storm, Wil Wheaton, Marian Call & more.”
So who are the Doubleclicks anyways?
The Doubleclicks are a pair of sisters, Angela and Aubrey Webber, who sing about Dungeons & Dragons, dinosaurs, and Mr. Darcy. They play cello and ukulele.
They tour the country regularly, playing at game stores, comic shops, and conventions, and have shared bills with Jonathan Coulton, Paul and Storm and Wil Wheaton according to their website.
So for all you self proclaimed geeky girls out there, check out their video above!
