  • 12. Geeks talk sexy: Next, the disclaimer We are fully aware that this title is only a vague approximation to reality and that gender is not just binary. We are in no way assuming that there are only straight, cis, monogamous, male or female geeks in this community. For the purpose of this talk we picked the most obvious intersection for arising problems, which is the role of women in the geek community that is usually only discussed from a professional point of view. We hope this decision does not offend anyone and that people of all genders and orientations Thanks for joining us for the talk. Look out for part 3 in March...
