Nerds and Male Privilege
This article is fantastic. And so is this comment:
Nobody wants to believe that if given power, they’ll use it badly. Especially when they’ve been attacked by those with power earlier in life. In other words, nobody wants to think when a ship full of their friends crash on a desert island, they’ll end up as Piggy holding the conch shell.
Bit of an obscure metaphor for some, but I think that’s really the heart of the matter. (And it doesn’t just apply to nerd boys.) I really like hearing people thinking about this stuff.
I love being a geek, but the day I opted out of the standard geek-club in uni was the day I discovered I’d been listed as the prize for the club’s all-day Halo tournament. This is a beautifully-written article that deserves the circulation.
