  2. Re: Interesting article about Sexism in Geek Communities I need that Pokemon hat. Srsly.
  3. Re: Interesting article about Sexism in Geek Communities RP in City of Heroes also struck me as distinctly ... weird. I never participated myself, but lots of things were discussed on the forums. I personally wouldn't try to draw too many conclusions about society because of it, other than the online RP community is into some really outré stuff. Overall though I agree it does seem to have a high squick factor, at least to outsiders.

  5. Re: Interesting article about Sexism in Geek Communities Ah, thanks for that. The Wikipedia article was kinda dry; it explained Essentialism as a kind of taxonomy only. I tend to view biology as a continuum. (Lots of great essays by Stephen J. Gould on that subject, btw.) And as a result I was having a lot of trouble figuring out what it is Essentialism was trying to say.
  6. Re: Interesting article about Sexism in Geek Communities I got a question: what does "essentialism" mean as used by that article? Feels like a philosophy thing, but I read Wikipedia and it didn't help me much. What the heck does it mean?

  9. Re: What Are You Listening To Right Now? "Bullets," by Archive. It's the theme song chosen for the new Cyberpunk 2020 game. (Now named Cyberpunk 2077.)
  10. Re: Interesting article about Sexism in Geek Communities I thought this was very interesting. It's not sexism in geek communities per se, but it does talk about images of women in the media in general. That may dovetail into such things as images of women in say comic books, and at a convention. Summary: a successful Victoria's Secret and Vogue model says that to be a model she had to first "win a genetic lottery" and then she says the pictures in those magazines are not her but instead "constructions." http://www.cnn.com/video/?hpt=hp_c2#/video/bestoftv/2013/01/09/exp-point-russell-model.cnn
