I have no idea who Rae Johnston is, but her owning of a douchebag has catapaulted her to my top fifteen favorite people in the world

This is what assholes deserve when they try to pull that "girls are fake geeks*" bullshit.
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.

*Or gamer, nerd, trekkie, potterhead, browncoat, SPNer, sherlockian, whovian, etc.

  1. Yeah, fuck that guy. Self-stylized gatekeepers are the worst kinds of people.
