On May 6, Tumblr user Endophallus Party posted this fatuous comparison of a Tumblry nerdy girl to “other girls”:
“Other girls are girly, I’m nerdy” is a common Tumblr theme, specifically visual comparisons like the above, which has variations like this, this, and this. But this one, as Brad O’Farrell at Modern Primate points out, was a parody. The author said so. And it sparked spinoffs (spins-off?), often from people who took Endophallus’s first picture seriously.
The other type specifically parodies the above. And that’s what we’re looking at today.

Homestuck, as referenced above, is a webcomic also known as MS Paint Adventures. A lot of the Other Girls artists here are Homestuck fans. A lot of them link to their DeviantArt pages from their Tumblrs. It’s a certain young, female-heavy overlap of these three cultures.
This one uses two characters as they appear in Homestuck (source unknown, found on Know Your Meme):
