If you’ve ever heard of so-called “fake geek girls”, hopefully you’ll have a better appreciation of what I’m saying here.
In truth, since the construct of “geekdom” has expanded to cover a broad range of interests over the years, its defining characteristics have grown increasingly nebulous. It used to be that geeks or nerds were stereotyped as social rejects who struggled with attracting the opposite sex, but given how geekdom has grown into a vast subculture in its own right (as the vast crowds at the annual Comic-Con attest), I’m not even sure if that applies anymore.
At any rate, I cannot fathom why pretty girls who are interested in geekdom are written off as fake by male geeks. You’d think we would all appreciate the company of beautiful women who share our interests. I know I would!
