I was asked to write up a piece on my thoughts on geek culture, for Parabasis. So I did! And I'm glad, because I have long flogged away at these issues without getting to just how I feel. This piece is my summation. I hope that people can see from it that the point is not to denigrate or attack people who still feel marginalized as fans of sci-fi or whatever, but to ask them to place those feelings in a larger context. I really do mean it: it's time to enjoy the fruits of the growth that you've craved, and you can't do that if you're too busy lamenting. Check it out, and please share/tweet/link it, if you're inclined.
