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.
