masqthephlsphr: Halt and Catch Fire (girl geek)
http://bookviewcafe.com/blog/2012/06/13/geek-versus-girl/

I am a dyed-in-the-wool, unapologetic feminist, but I never was particularly conscious of being denied anything because I was female growing up, either. Which is only speaking for me, and not anyone else. In fact, I remember both as a kid in school and later in college, the male mentors in my life pushing me to excel as if I was their own kid, which helped break me out of a shell of shy geekiness that was the truly uphill path I had to travel in school. I felt denied and left out for that all the time, but I also felt that I had a choice in that matter: if I'd wanted to conform and be one of the drones, I could have. I always lived on that cusp. I chose not to.
