TFPC 27- Geek culture

27.  Geek culture

Growing up geek was hard (I'm not going to claim it was as hard as growing up gay would be, naturally)- especially because my formative years were spent in a small school (less than 90 students from preschool through 7th grade) where a sizable number of the attendees were there as a school of last resort.

So it does me some good to see the embrace of geek-dom people like Wil Wheaton bring to the world, and to see that being a geek is no longer anathema.  I'm sure it's still hard on teenagers and kids in small schools, but maybe it's getting better.
