    Someone thinks that the woman who came up with the exercise and knowledge-acquisition plan to prepare for the zombie apocalypse isn’t a geek? Clearly, he knows nothing.

    It’s sad that even folks in the sci-fi fandom and gaming communities (the sorts of people one would’ve thought to be too enlightened/tolerant) can cling to harmful stereotypes. I wonder if such attitudes extend beyond gender to include race and other distinctions.
    I personally know that girls can be “geeks” too. I had a friend named Crystal who was more of a gamer than I’ll ever be. I’ve also met and worked with female colleagues whose technical savvy made me look like a caveman in comparison.
