I’m really rather geeky, you know. I read lots of scientific books about science. I like to make computer programmes. I enjoy comic books. And all of the other geeky type stuff. But you know what irritates me?
You know why? Because this is what happens when women enter the nerdsphere:
* You have entered #geekchat
<Darkone> no I haven’t tried the 64-bit version.
<grampy> I haven’t noticed much difference tbh
<Darkone> i guess I could always chroot it if i had any problems
<grampy> pfft, chroot jails are for girls
* Darkone is a girl
<grampy> zomg rly?
<lolohnoes> show us ur boobs lol jkz not really jkz
<somedood> hey your whois says you’re from NY, wanna hook up some time? jkz
<DeadSeven777> hey there’s a girl in here
<grampy> lol somedood. but Darkone maybe i could help you out some more if you have problems
<lolohnoes> Darkone: check pm
* Darkone has left #geekchat
Geek women exist, sure. But let’s be honest about it. The geeksphere is almost entirely a meat-swinging contest. When I talk about geeky things, my girlfriend zones out and falls into a coma so deep that The World’s Most Bottomless Pit starts feeling threatened. My experiences are pretty much par for the course for most of us geeky males. I really should start a webcomic where the female lead isn’t some sort of idealised perfect nerd-babe who has a tedious will-they-won’t-they relationship subplot with the male lead. But would anybody read it? I think I lack the humour crystals to pull it off. OH WELL.
