How To Piss Me Off, Part II

Out of fifty-six geeks, how many do you think are represented as female? I counted, and the answer’s three: Ren Faire Geek, Cosplay Geek, and Scrapbooking Geek. That’s right, ladies! You too can be a geek, as long as your geekery is super-conventionally feminized!

The funny bit is that, despite how pissed I am, I don’t actually consider myself a geek. (Geeky, yes. A geek, no.) Actually, I kind of hate geek culture. Artifacts like this picture are a big part of the reason why.
