RE: Fake Geek Girls

I wrote this on a blog that I neglect slightly less than this one. 

But both of those selections seem so bogged down by the baggage that comes with her accusations of people being “deceitful” about being a geek to get attention, or to benefit somehow from appearing to be a geek, and the idea that the label geek is some sort of merit badge you can earn and slap on your shoulder, that I still have trouble picking out where the article gets into “follow your dreams” territory because I’m so hung up on the idea in the last paragraph that we should find some new secret knock for us “real geeks” so all the posers can’t get in the clubhouse.

Thanks to Verdell for picking out the good part for me.
