  • LGBTQ+ Representation for a General Audience

    This week the fifth episode of Star Trek: Discover “Choose Your Pain” introduced a same sex couple – Stamets and Culber – which is being hailed as an amazing moment for LGBTQ+ representation. I’ve been thinking about the portrayal of this same sex couple and why I am at once very pleased with it, but also […]

  • Dragon Con 2017 Panel Report: Game of Toxic Masculinity, Part 2

    Part one of my “Game of Toxic Masculinity” panel report from Dragon Con 2017 wrapped up with a discussion of show runners Benioff and Weiss and how their own toxic masculinity effects the series. In that discussion I touched on Loras and how they portrayed his sexuality, and so I’ll begin part two by exploring […]


  • Dragon Con 2017 Panel Report: Game of Toxic Masculinity, Part 1

    I’ve been lucky enough to take part in many Game of Thrones panels at Dragon Con throughout the years – every year since 2012, in fact – but this year, the new High Fantasy track really went above and beyond with their Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones offerings, including an awesome panel called […]


  • Smashing Tropes: Getting Aging Female Characters Right In Popular Media

For some reason this seems to get less discussion, combined with a lingering, difficult-to-budge perception that shippers are to blame. That shipping is to […]


  • Retrospective: Teen Wolf Season 2 was a Gift

    As Teen Wolf is finally ending, I thought it was a good time to look back and reflect on my relationship with the show. While it might have soured with the later seasons, there was a time when I was deeply and unashamedly in love with this show and there’s a reason for that. The […]


  • 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 […]
