  • The Defenders: Calling Out Rich White Male Privilege

    Keen eyed Geekiary readers may have noticed we haven’t done a proper review of Iron Fist like we do for most of the other Defenders. In fact, we’ve been rather critical of him when we mention him at all.  So it shouldn’t surprise you that while watching The Defenders, most of us are pretty thrilled that he […]

  • International Women’s Day with The Geekiary’s Editors!

    Although The Geekiary is going ‘dark’ tomorrow as part of the “Day Without A Woman” for International Women’s Day, we still wanted to do something to *mark* the day.

  • How Geeks Can Get Through the Trump Presidency

    It’s going to be a tough four years as we try to get through the Trump presidency, but we’ve got to stick together and be active.  RESIST. It shouldn’t be a surprise that The Geekiary’s staff is peopled with liberals, progressives, and fierce independents.  After the election of Trump we wrote Progressive Geeks: We Have Work […]


  • Why We Shouldn’t Totally Boycott Simon & Schuster

  • About These #dumpstarwars People – Have They Ever Seen “Star Wars”?

Within an hour the #dumpstarwars hashtag began trending, leaving actual fans wondering: have these people actually seen Star Wars at all? Not sure who this “Jack Posobiec” is? You are in good company. He’s just […]
