OK, I didn’t really intend to comment more on male privilege except as to how it undercuts geek guys trying to get better with women. After all between Reddit and Tumblr, it seems that the hornet’s nest is well and truly thwacked, as seen in the comments section and the sudden traffic spike.
But then several of my readers sent me this and I had to share. It neatly encapsulates one of most common arguments that comes up every time someone brings up the idea of male privilege and how it applies to geek culture: the idea of False Equivalence.
From the awesomely twisted brain child that is David Willis’ Short Packed:
Everybody go shower him with praise.
