My daughter Nechama is quite the geek.  Sitting with her and a few of her friends, they good-naturedly started quizzing me the way they get quizzed by guys accusing them of being "fake geeks".

First I had to point out that I was only into certain fandoms, so they agreed to restrict their questions to those.  Then I had a chance.  But of course, the sexist man-babies who subject them to this stupidity don't extend the same courtesy.

Sometimes I am thoroughly ashamed of my gender!
