Hot geekness is not exclusive to the guys, the girls rock it too.
Come to think of it. Female geeks are all about science and research and they go out of their way to research for physiological basis of things and that includes how to properly do “certain things” to get maximum results. So, what others would only learn from their experience, they learn from their own experience and the experience of others.
Get my drift?
10. River Tam – Serenity
Played by: Summer Glau
Geek-quote: I swallowed a bug.
Geekdom: River was born with a mind of unparalelled brilliance. While Simon (her brother) was smart enough to become a gifted doctor in the top 3% of his class at the finest medical institution, River was so bright she corrected her older brother’s spelling by the time she was three years old, and even found mathematical errors in his textbooks.
9. Mystique - X-Men
Played by: Rebecca Romijn
Geek-quote: Nothing will go wrong on my watch. And by nothing, I mean everything.
Geekdom: Mystique is a cunning strategist in terrorist and commando operations, and adept at martial arts and information technology. She has a talent for finding, stealing, and understanding cutting edge weaponry. She is a talented actress. She has some natural resistance to telepathic intrusion and wears devices to prevent her mind from being read by telepathy. Further, with over a century’s experience in posing as other people she has picked up the uncanny skill of being able to identify people posing as others based on body language and changes in behavioral cues.
8. Laney Boggs – She s All That
Played by: Rachael Leigh Cook
Geek-quote: Simon! Simon, I have got your breakfast! Are you up? Simon Boggs, there are children in Mexico who have already been up for three hours making clothes for corporate America.
Geekdom: An artist who is part of the bet Zack and Dean made. She is beautiful, but that isn’t truly shown until her makeover. Her mom died when she was young and she became the woman of the house. She pretends she doesn’t care about what people think of her. She’s an artist and she’s the kind that makes it obvious to everyone… complete with jumper pants and thick black-framed glasses.
7. Ripley - Alien (Tie)
Played by: Sigourney Weaver
Geek-quote: Whenever he says *anything* you say “right,” Brett, you know that? Parker, what do you think? Your staff just follows you around and says “right”. Just like a regular parrot.
Geekdom: Ripley was selected by the American Film Institute as the eighth greatest hero in American cinema history on their 100 Years… 100 Heroes and Villains list. Entertainment Weekly called the character “one of the first female movie characters who isn’t defined by the men around her, or by her relationship to them”.
6. Kate Libby - Acid Burn
Played by: Angelina Jolie
Geek-quote: I hope you don’t screw like you type.
Geekdom: She is the kind of geek that is willing to hump in the middle of a coding marathon.
