Snarky guy in coffee queue eyes off my Bioshock Infinite t-shirt, suggests I "probably haven't even played it". So I told him the ending.Let's be honest here, the fucker deserved it. This whole culture of denigrating women for "not being real geeks" within the subculture is sickening and embarrassing. A geek is a geek, regardless of their gender or sexual identity. Just because you are male does not mean that you are inherently empowered to declare who is and isn't part of the subculture. Not only did that fucker deserve to have Bioshock spoiled, so does every other asshole who pulls that same discriminatory bullshit.

As for Rae Johnston, The Mary Sue says that she's a writer fora website called TechLife. I don't pay all that much attention to tech blogs, so that explains why I hadn't heard of her before. I might have to start reading her stuff.
So, what do you think? Was Johnston's action appropriate? Any sympathy for the guy? Tell me in the comments.
