I tip my hat to you, sir.
Seriously, thank you. I don't always agree with you (such as your historically based argument for justifying double standards regarding race; I feel that true equality can only be brought by acts of true equality, not retribution for previous acts), but you construct your arguments well. And I truly appreciate it when you apply that ability to arguments I agree with and/or something that HAS to be said.
And I hate to admit it, but I've had my own way of shrugging off sexism and other intolerance within Geek culture: By saying "Ugh, but I'm not that kind of geek. I'm better than they are. They just won't get anywhere with their lives."
