See a Problem?

Geek Girls Unite is just informative enough that teenager girls, who feel their inner geek, but can't find an outlet, can learn more and identify with others and those of us who already know what we are can laugh in delight. I liked that Simon talks about Athletic Geek Girl as a person who doesn't necessarily play or want to play sports it goes back to that collecting thing I mentioned earlier so I felt comfortable about falling into this category as well.
