Hey guys!  Very excited to announce that I (and possibly an unconfirmed co-host) will be hosting a panel focusing on the bullying ingrained in geek culture!  This will be a close look at how bullying affects geeks, specifically targeting the bullying by geeks to other geeks.  Ever feel like you're defending your geekdom to other geeks?  This panel is going to touch on the psychology behind why this is becoming a common phenomenon, as well as take a close look at some of our own experiences, prejudices and actions.  I've scoured research papers, the internet, and the lives of those around me for anecdotes highlighting how a seemingly innocent joke/comment can deeply hurt both another person, and geek culture as a whole.

Title: You're not a REAL geek!
Time: 10am Sunday
Place: Panels 3

Why this panel: As a female geek who also happens to be a professional game programmer, I have some unique perspectives and experiences with the expectation of having to constantly prove to fellow nerds and geeks, men and women alike, that I do belong in this culture.  We all do it at some level, if even just subconsciously.  But as the most bullied culture from childhood in today's society, we the geeks/nerds/dorks/gamers have a very unique opportunity to end the cycle of abuse, and become an awesome inclusive culture.  The way our culture is currently evolving, we're expecting others to prove that they are one of us, often rejecting those we deem to have not endured the same level of bullying as we did. I want to raise awareness at how to identify and alleviate these types of bullying situations, whether in person, over the internet, or some other medium- Bullying is NEVER okay, and we have the power to put an end to it!

Feedback, ideas, and stories/anecdotes are very welcome! Post or PM me if you want to incorporate your story on how you experienced, watched, or stopped geek-on-geek bullying!
