The Mary Sue, a new geek culture blog, just launched a hot second ago, and in one of the very first posts, a staff blogger explains to readers why a geek site "for women" is really necessary. It was an explanation I needed, frankly, because at first blush, I saw an Oscars roundup and a

Stripping, Spanking, Girls Kissing: It’s A New Wii Game

Sex and video games are two of God's greatest inventions, so it's only natural they'd come together.

“Jersey Shore,” The Video Game

"Jersey Shore" hardly needs CollegeHumor.com to make itself more funny, but a fake RPG video starring these stallions is still kick-ass.

“Grease” Gets A Re-Release And A Video Game

So I know that, by virtue of being female, I am supposed to love "Grease." But to be honest, I've just never gotten that into it. Something about the message, "If you want the guy ... change yourself and wear more pleather," just never sat that well with me. So I'm wondering why "Grease" i…
