PONY, cats, StarCraft II, other nice games, fantasy- and scifi-books, some of that cool science, memes, complete nonsense, more PONY, you name it. All kinds of geekery.

This is all that is wrong with geek culture nowadays. Casuals thinking they’re the shit because they played portal “lol guise the caek is a lie ^^”, watch Big Bang Theory “Omg bazinga haha so funnay they are such nerds!!!” or saw the latest Marvel movie “Loki is so smexy I wanna do a running tackle glomp XD”. “Eew you play Dungeons & Demons what a creep”. “Wait what there are Sherlock books now!?”
Forgive me (or call me a shitlord who should check my privilege for all I care) for saying something that you without doubt will label misogynistic, but as long as these “nrrd grrlz” are to be considered untouchable by some cliques of feminists, women will always have to face prejudice in geek culture. I’m not saying one should walk up to some random grill cosplaying as that strong proud womyn original-character-do-not-steal elf from the latest Hobbit movie and request her to recite Tolkien’s entire lore verbatim. (Although I’m sure that happens all the time, which really isn’t making things better)
I’m just suggesting us geeks (of every gender) not giving women a free pass just for them being women. Shame and question the existence of faux geeks no matter their gender, age, ethnicity, religion, social class, ableness or what have you. Look down upon them, be they old black bisexual men, rich as hell hindu genderqueers or native american boys with cerebral palsy. No free passes, that’s just *ist. Elitist is the only acceptable *ist here.
And welcome them with open arms and teach them Klingon if they are willing to transcend past casualness!
I tried to make Sonic the Hedgehog with fancy computer graphics and this is why we can’t have nice things.

Nothing against Emerald Herald but she was kinda chatty. Maiden in Black was cooler and more mysterious what with the wax-sealed eyes n’ all. And that endearing yet ominous voice and accent! Plus you could kill her and use her head as a stepping stone in the shallow water if you were a total heartless dick.
They both ain’t got shit on Sweet Shalquoir of course. That’s waifu material right there!
