May they be forever alone for their elitist douche-baggery.
I was recently interviewing the woman who founded Her Universe and we were talking specifically about women and geekdom. I asked about the rise of girls in geek culture and she very accurately corrected me: There is no “rise” of geek girls. We’ve always been here. Girls are just as nerdy as dudes are. Ladies have always been interested in sci fi and fantasy and video games - we just don’t talk about it a lot because men are assholes.
mmyep. it’s such a self-fulfilling prophecy- like, if you loudly declare at the slightest opportunity that any woman who likes anything you like is an inferior fan and should fuck off, of course you’re not going to know any women who share your interests. i have no time for that bullshit.
