Shaenon Garrity’s “Perils of the Lady Gamer” comic

It takes a look at the situation for women who attend game conventions — and yes, it takes a well-earned jab at the Penny Arcade guys, PAX, and the “dickwolves” mess as well as the completely-made-up “fake geek girl” syndrome — through a turn-of-the-previous-century lens. Here’s a sample:
