The Fangirl Manifesto

You will find the fangirl manifesto into ‘The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy,’ a guidebook to all things geek. If you want to enter into the world of fandoms, or just have a book to enjoy with friends, this is it. However, there’s something in it that really rocks: the feminist manifesto.

Let’s take a look at it!

I am a Geek Girl and I am a Feminist.

I embrace the word “FANGIRL” with open arms. I don’t have to prove my nerd cred to anyone, ever.

Whether I am a comics noob, or a fic writer typing up her next chapter, or a hardcore gamer who sometimes forgets to sleep (not that I ever do that), no one else gets to decide whether I do or do not belong.

From SuperWhoLock to Shakarian, I accept all fandoms and ships as equally meaningful and important in our geek girl lives.

Even if your OTP is my NOTP, I will still like you (even if I have to un-follow your blog).

I can wear makeup and R2D2 min-dresses, or a Chewie t-shirt and ripped jeans, and the world had to deal with it; because a geek feminist looks however she wants and doesn’t apologize.

I will support empowering, lady-created media and amazing female characters that make me feel like I could be Batgirl if I just had some yellow Doc Martens and a vigilante complex.

I’m the Doctor, not a Companion; Buffy, not a Bella; Nobody’s Sidekick, Love Interest, or Token Female. I’m driving this ship.

I am a FANGIRL, a Feminist, and a Force to be reckoned with.

This is Maggs’ manifesto as a fangirl. I do really love it! But I would really like to know your thoughts about it, and if you agree with her vision about what a fangirl should be. Do you agree? Would you add anything else?

    I definitely want to read this book! I’ve heard so much about it, and it looks so great!

    • It’s an awesome guide for new fangirls. I will keep my copy, but if I want to turn a friend into a fangirl, I will buy another copy as a present 3:) It’s perfect for that! 😀 And it’s cute! (Yup, mischievous present.)
