Speak Out With Your Geek Out

Last week a lot of folks got up in arms about a horrible piece written by someone about a geeky guy. The piece was intended to be a so called warning about the pitfalls about meeting someone from a dating site, it was just geek rage bait. The women who wrote the piece, wrote for a pay per click site, so she did something easy to make some extra money :-/

One of the better responses has been from Monica Valentinelli. Her idea is great, be geek and proud :) Just remember that it's not just for gaming/comics/movies, but for things that people don't automatically put together with geek like food, photography, fashion or sports. The main thing is to share what you're passionate about. So consider taking part.

SPEAK OUT WITH YOUR GEEK OUT

Sometime during the week of Monday, September 12th to Friday, September 16th post about what geeky hobby you love. Then, tell us why we should try it, too. Leave your fears (and edition wars) at the door. Forget about your latest rant. Tap into that well of positive energy and share in the excitement of all things geek.

Let us invite those who would stereotype us to sit at our table and share our interests.

  1. The whole rage and over reaction from the geek community over this issue makes me gag. I'm a geek, I'm proud that I'm a geek. So one random girl didn't like the fact that the guy she went on some dates with was a geek and failed to mention it. People need to get over it, sure she blogged about it and made her issues public but so what, she's entitled to her opinion. People are acting like she tarred and feathered him, his entire response has been meh whatever. It's now just gotten pathetic on both sides.

  2. I agree the rage has been silly, but this speak out is about people sharing their passion. I've dealt with people who are ashamed of being geeky, that is the thing that is wrong, and that should be shared. So by more people talking about it, it should show that there is nothing wrong with being a geek.
