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 woman.I’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? : 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.

Norway plans to spend 100 million Norwegian Crowns ($12M USD) to upgrade their doomsday seed vault, which was built 12 years ago to safely store seeds to the world’s crops and plants from a potential natural or man-made global disaster. There are 890,886 seed varieties currently being conserved in the Seed Vault . ___ Located inside a mountain on a remote island in the Svalbard archipelago, halfway between mainland Norway and the North Pole, the Svalbard Global Seed Vault was created by the Crop Trust- a foundation of the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization. The vault was built in an abandoned Arctic coal mine surrounded by permafrost and thick rock to ensure the seeds stay frozen, even without power. The Crop Trust describes the vault’s mission as “safeguarding the building blocks of agriculture.” ___ Photo: Crop Trust: WORLD NEWS THE SEED VAULT Feb 27 Norway plans to spend 100 million Norwegian Crowns ($ 12M USD) to upgrade their doomsday seed vault, known as the Svalbard Global Seed Vault.

Children dressed in Santa Claus costumes wave as they participate in Christmas celebrations at a school in Chandigarh, India. Many people believe that the modern image of Santa comes from the work of Thomas Nast, an artist who drew for the magazine Harpers Weekly. He painted Santa from 1863 to 1886 and in 1869 illustrated a book called Santa Claus and His Works. The book showed how Santa manufactured toys for boys and girls at his home at the North Pole. The colours of his suit are widely thought to derive from the original Saint Nicholas, who was the Bishop of Myra in the 4th Century. Red and white were the hues of traditional bishop robes, although some historians argue that he originally dressed in different colours.
