run the fuck away

Okay, what the fuck people

This is your list of "Girl Geeks"? That's the best you could do? You couldn't be arsed to, I don't know, find a female gamer that, oh, maybe one a competition of note (there's plenty of them), or someone working on some cutting edge field of robotics? No, you include Paris Hilton, Daryl Hannah and Lisa Simpson? You couldn't, oh, I don't know, flesh your list of female geeks out with real people? An android, a girl who played one, and a cartoon? Seriously, I find this offensive, and I'm not the sort to search for politically incorrect causes to get offended about- but seriously.

They make it sound like there's only seven women that have ever contributed to science and technology. Ever. There are so few true female geeks that we have to grab fictional ones. As a geek, I feel that I need to speak out for my geek sisters.
