Everyone is passionate about something. Our passions make us healthier and happier because we feel fully expressed.
Women should be encouraged to dream big to pursue careers that once were less available. The rise of the female geek means their time is now – a time to wear your geek flag on your sleeve. Female geeks should embrace their fandom with full enthusiasm and passion. And if they do, they’ll find others like them who love geek culture from comics to games to cosplay to film and TV to collectibles and so much more.
Being a geek today is more accepted by the general public. The qualities associated with a geek have become more accepted and desirable. No matter your age, educational background, gender, sexual orientation, you will be accepted. You will always find people with the same shared interest and passions, who accept you into the community.

“When Facebook was getting going, I had these people who would come up to me and they would say, ‘I’m not on social media.’ And I would say, ‘OK. You know, you will be.’ And then they would say, ‘No, no, no. I value my real-life interactions. I value the moment. I value presence. I value intimacy.’ And I would say, … ‘We’ll get you eventually.’””I don’t know if I really understood the consequences of what I was saying, because [of] the unintended consequences of a network when it grows to a billion or 2 billion people and … it literally changes your relationship with society, with each other … It probably interferes with productivity in weird ways. God only knows what it’s doing to our children’s brains.”
