Just remember There is no such thing as a fake geek girl There are only fake geek boys Science fiction was invented by a womarn Specifically a teenage girl You know someone who would be a part of the demographic that some of these violently rejecting boys are foxsan Isaac Asimov simOnbaz yo mary shelley wrote frankenstein in 1818 and isaac asimov was born in 1920 so you kinda get my point divinedorothy If you want to push it back even further Margaret Cavendish the duchess of Newcastle 1623-1673 wrote The Blazing World in 1666 about a young woman wheo discovers a Utopian world that can only be accessed via the North Pole- oft credited as one of the first scifi novels Women have always been at the forefront of literature the first novel what we would consider a novel in modern terms was written by a woman Lady Muraskai's the Tale of Genji in the early 1000s take your snide Isaac Asimov reblogs and stick it even in terms of male scifi authors asimov was predated by Jules Verne HG Wells George Orwell you could have even cited Poe or Jonathan Swift has a case but Asimov? PbbBFFTTBBBTBTTBBTBTTT so desperate to discredit the idea of Mary Shelly as the mother of modern science fiction you didn't even do a frickin google search For Shame validcriticism And if you want to go back even further the first named identified author in history was Enheduanna of Akkad a Sumerian high priestess gunthatshootsennui Kinda funny considering this Isaac Asimov quote on the subject Mary Shelley was the first to make use of a new finding of science which she advanced further to a logical extreme and it is that which makes Frankenstein the first true science fiction story Even Isaac Asimov ain't having none of your shit not even posthumously touchofgrey37 You know what else was invented by women? Masked vigilantes the precursor to the modern superhero Baroness Emma Orczy wrote The Scarlet Pimpernel in 1905 The character would later inspire better known masked vigilantes such as Zorro and Batman Got that? Stick that in your international pipe and smoke it la-knight I have literally been telling people this for over a year the first extended prose piece- ie a not as many male scholars will shout Don Quixote 1605 but The Tale of Genji 1008 written by a woman novel was thepsychicclam The first autobiography ever written in English is also attributed to a woman The Book of Margery Kempe 1430s itsnotjustpms I’d like to title this stream “Dear Geek Guys” - if you don’t like women in geek culture get out because it’s not yours Also a well-read woman will ALWAYS school you when you try to act the misogynist so go sit down… and read a book written by a womanI’m not sure if the autobiography portion is correct though I know there was a Korean woman who wrote a diary that was published…not sure if it counts as autobiography though perhaps memoir?
