ReBlog: Nerds and Male Privilege

A friend of mine linked to this blog post on Facebook, and I loved it SO MUCH I had to share. Yes, it's a little old (dated Nov 28, 2011), but the issues it raises are still very relevant. What place do women have in Geek Culture? Does Geek Culture--a culture that prides itself on inclusivity--limit the voices of those who aren't straight, white men? Entertaining and insightful post.
"Y’see, one of the issues of male privilege as it applies to fandom is the instinctive defensive reaction to any criticism that maybe, just maybe, shit’s a little fucked up, yo."
