I’ve spent decades now in spaces that women are supposedly only recently entering or trying to enter. I’ve resided all this time in places men claim I now want to usurp from them.

I shouldn’t have to say that I wasn’t the only woman in these communities, but I will anyway, because apparently it’s required. Other women have always been my companions through this. We have read and written and squeed together. We have played games together. We have written algorithms and programmed together. Always.

The Myth of Male Nerdom is exactly that; a myth.
