The juxtaposition of these two posts fascinated me.
First, Lesley Kinzel on female stereotyping in geek / gamer culture.
Second: Jezebel, on MTV "getting it wrong" with a female nerd.
The pair came to me within about 24 hours of each other, and really struck me: once again, it's a no-win situation. But the money quote from Lesley sums up what I hope to take with me, and take away from, PAX:
Dudes, be human. Ladies and other female-IDing types, be awesome, no matter what you’re into or what you look like. Can’t we all just kill each other and not be assholes about it?
