The excellent [personal profile] damned_colonial invited me to participate in the new Geek Feminism blog and it's been a ball thus far. You mean I get more excuse to interact with smart, sassy, feminist folk? Sign me up!

I haven't quite decided how to cross-post or whatever, so I'll give you a teaser here for one of my posts, entitled An “ass” out of “u” and “me”:


I’m off-white, so I’m used to people assuming rather strange things about me. The big one I am forever explaining is that no, I really am Canadian. Yes, that’s where I’m really from. That’s where my ancestors are from too.
...

But the weirdest assumption I ever encountered was that because I was a girl, I would somehow know something about computer usability.


(Read the rest here)

Also from me was a straight up cross-post of my entry about my good experience at PAX (and my bad experiences elsewhere), and a remix entitled Want more women in open source? Try paying them..

Perhaps the funniest thing I've seen going is the comment thread on Where are all the men bloggers? For those who aren't familiar with the sort of comment threads women have to wade through regularly on any post mentioning women in blogging/fandom/tech/politics/etc, most of the comments in there are basically stuff we've heard before with the genders reversed. It's both hilarious and offensive depending upon how you read it, as much satire is.

Go visit Geek Feminism for more interesting stuff. And those of you on dreamwidth can subscribe to [syndicated profile] geekfeminism_feed too.
