Why Aren't Women More Welcome in Nerd Culture?
Once upon a time being a geek was a source of shame. Now the nerds have inherited the earth and The Big Bang Theory is the number one comedy on television. One byproduct of this rise in geek culture is more women infiltrating what has traditionally been a male realm. But though the party line of these guys is a longing for more female attention, the response from the community is suspicious at best. A girl who attempts to infiltrate is obviously faking geekery to lure men into her lady web. The proud man geeks of Society: Why It's Wrong dissect the sexism in the geek community and stand up for the value of geeks of both genders. They only dip a toe into some of the possible reasons behind the resistance, but people on the inside asking these questions is definitely part of the solution.
