Something Obvious

My ten-year old wanted to know why the women in this video had to hold up signs to prove that they were Real Geeks™.

“They’re actually saying that they don’t have to prove it,” I said.  “To anyone.”

“Huh?”

I explained.

“Boys really think that way?”

“Some do,” I said.  “Some men, too. And  some women think people call themselves geeks just to get attention.”

“And they think we’re dumb?”

“‘Fraid so.”

“Well,” she said, powering up her tricked out fighter jet on Notebook Wars 3,  “their loss.”
