You Don't Have to Talk About It

Hey, little sister or brother. If something has happened to you. If someone has hurt you, or is hurting you. If someone is making you uncomfortable every day, if someone is doing something to your body—I hope you have someone to talk to. Somebody you trust. Maybe somebody who…

Frankly put. I am a FAKE GEEK GUY. I admit it. I like geek stuff, but I don’t love geek stuff. Not the way most geeks do. I’m an interloper on the geek scene. I’ve seen the movies, but I don’t know the canon. I am not a true fan.

All those things about not really loving the source material and “just watching the movies” or only reading the one book that everyone has read. That—all of that—applies to me.

But here are some things that have never happened to me. I have never been quizzed about who Data’s evil brother is to prove I like Star Trek. I have never had to justify my place in a midnight line to see Spider-man II by knowing who took up the mantle of Spider-man after Peter Parker’s death. (Peter Parker dies? Really? That’s so sad!) I have never had to explain who Nightwing is in order to participate in a conversation about Batman. (Nightwing is like….Robin on steroids, right?) I have never been asked how battle meditation works in order to voice my opinion that Enterprise shields would probably make a fight with Star Wars technology one sided. (Battle meditation is something that was in that Jedi role playing game, wasn’t it?) I have never had to beat everybody in the room (twice) at Mario Kart to prove I liked video games. I have never had my gender “honorarily” changed by having enough geek interests to be accepted (“you’re one of the guys now”). No one has ever insisted I tell them the difference between a tank and DPS in an MMORPG before allowing me to discuss raiding Molten Core. I have never been dismissed as a faker at a prequel screening because I didn’t know which admiral came out of light speed too close to the planet’s surface in The Empire Strikes Back. I have never been quizzed about Armor Class in order to get past someone who was blocking my path to the back of a game store where my friends were waiting at the tables. I have never been told I’m not a real fan. I have never been shamed for coming to a convention despite my lack of esoteric knowledge. And I have never, ever, EVER been invited to leave a fandom because I didn’t like [whatever it was] enough.

Every one of the things I have listed, I have personally witnessed happen. To women.

That’s not elitism. That’s sexism.

I asked my friend if I could take his picture because I wanted to show my boss how much he looks like Tormund Giantsbane, and I promised him it wouldn’t end up on the internet. But he has been missing for four days - no one has seen him since Wednesday. His truck was found abandoned by the bike path on Dayton Xenia Road.
This is Chris Mollahan, and if you see him, please let me know? And I don’t care how far away from Ohio you live, if you could signal boost for us we would be grateful.

A letter from a falconer re: the falconry photo shoot I posted earlier.

hodgman:

Pertaining to the falconry fashion shoot I re-tumbled earlier today (link above), I received my favorite letter today from a stranger named, appropriately, Doug Best. It contains important information about falconry and I urge you to read it in its entirety. 

Meanwhile, those of you who wrote me yesterday for the mailing list contest, I will be writing you back shortly to say why you are almost all wrong. 

NOW: THE BEST OF DOUG BEST

Mr. Hodgman,

"As a licensed but currently non-practicing falconer in the state of Kentucky (this is the truth), I have to call Harbor magazine out for promoting some popular and enduring misconceptions about falconry.

"Two of the photos show owls. Owls are not used in falconry. Not only have they proved to be considerably less tractable than hawks and falcons, but they hunt largely at night, which is exceedingly inconvenient to humans. Their most common prey, even among larger species, is rodents, which we consider unpalatable (a misconception in itself, as Norwegian rat pâté is a culinary experience not to be missed). Hence the time-honored insult in falconry, "he’s a real owl", denoting a falconer of little use or measurable success.

"Another photo shows a bald eagle. Although the bald eagle is lionized in America, it has no practical value in falconry. It is largely a scavenger, not a hunter, and is spectacularly lazy. Ben Franklin campaigned for the turkey to be our national bird - intelligent, courageous, a good parent, and strictly indigenous - and it is a shame he failed. It’s a sad comment on our nation that a superficially attractive bird otherwise devoid of admirable qualities was instead selected.

"The second photo from the top shows a truly remarkable bird - the Harris Hawk. It was ignored by falconers until around 1980. Since then it has exploded in popularity to become the most popular bird in the sport, being exported all around the globe. This is the result of a characteristic utterly unique in the world of birds of prey - the Harris Hawk is highly social, and hunts cooperatively, typically in groups of 3 to 5. One may search overhead, another flush the prey, while two more wait in ambush. They are highly intelligent (for a bird) and also communicate with sound to a much greater degree than other birds of prey. All these characteristics make them exceedingly valuable as a hunting partner. Even when taken as nestlings, they catch on to group hunting quite quickly. They will follow a hunting dog and wait for him to point. There is even evidence that they understand when their human is pointing to something. Remarkable.

"I hope you will take the time to post these facts, in the interest of promoting a deeper and more accurate understanding of the ancient sport of kings.

"Thank you.

"Yours,
Doug Best”

So someone said to me that you can never meet a good person off the Internet. I want to prove them wrong. Reblog if you’ve met someone from the Internet and they’ve turned out to be one of the best people to ever exist.
