Normative Sexism: Geek Edition

Normative Sexism: Geek Edition

In which Foz Meadows writes a solid, well-articulated article on sexism in geek culture, benevolent and otherwise, a system that exploits it, and the problems that follow. This particular article is in response to a reader comment on a previous article, Default Narrative Sexism, which is a particularly potent read for writers engaged in worldbuilding and character creation. Equally worthwhile is her post on female characters in dystopian narratives.
