I have been a bit down on geek culture, but on the other hand I think that it is better than national identity, geekiness can be global, which is awesome.
Also it's more inclusive than other identities, like being a scientist, a proletariat, of a political affiliation, of a religion, or others.
Fucking Gamergate assholes! We don't want you here, everybody should be able to geek! I want to clockwork orange Star Trek to them.
