Just remember. There is no such thing as a fake geek girl.
There are only fake geek boys.
Science fiction was invented by a woman.
Specifically a teenage girl. You know, someone who would be a part of the demographic that some of these boys are violently rejecting.
yo mary shelley wrote frankenstein in 1818 and isaac asimov was born in 1920 so you kinda get my point
Mary Shelley didn’t invent the entire genre but a ton of sci-fi tropes were codified by her, she was the first of a huge boom in sci-fi novels, and Frankenstein can be considered the genesis of modern science fiction.
and the origins of science fiction can be traced way back to the 17th century to another woman: Mary Cavendish wrote in 1666 The Description of a New World, Called The Blazing-World, “the only known work of utopian fiction by a woman in the 17th century, as well as one of the earliest examples of what we now call ‘science fiction’ — although it is also a romance, an adventure story, and even autobiography.”
