May they be forever alone for their elitist douche-baggery.
I was recently interviewing the woman who founded Her Universe and we were talking specifically about women and geekdom. I asked about the rise of girls in geek culture and she very accurately corrected me: There is no “rise” of geek girls. We’ve always been here. Girls are just as nerdy as dudes are. Ladies have always been interested in sci fi and fantasy and video games - we just don’t talk about it a lot because men are assholes.
Reminder that the very first writer of science-fiction was a woman (Mary Shelley)
Reminder that the very first computer programmer was a woman (Ada Lovelace)
Reminder that the largest contribution to the development of object-oriented programming was done by a woman (Barbara Liskov)
Reminder that a woman invented code compilers (Grace Hopper)
Reminder that a woman discovered radioactivity (Marie Curie)
A woman first photographed DNA (Rosalind Franklin)
A woman discovered what stars are made of (Cecilia Payne)
It was, most likely, women who made the first calendars and noted the passage of time, as their menstrual periods coincided with the moon phases.
Don’t you dare tell us we do not belong in the realm of science and geekery. It does not belong to men. We were there from the start.
I wonder how many stranger’s stories we make it into? You know, maybe someone saw you in passing and told their friends about how pretty the girl in the lavender sweater was. Or maybe they overheard you say a joke and repeated it to their friend, confessing that they heard it from some guy at the store.
