In Reodwyn’s first post on her new blog, The Forbidden Pool, she dives beneath the surface of the terms “nerd” and “geek” and grasps at the slippery fish of gender status, cultural elitism, and the arrogance of male supremacism. Gazing over her shoulder into these perilous waters, we glimpse a contemplative rippling of passion and attitude. We see criss-crossing echoes of all the overlapping magic circles that draw us onward into selfhood. In these circles, as Reodwyn suggests, it is beautiful to play, to expand, to discuss. In this way, we hope to “spread the awesomeness.” Go ahead… take a swim, if you dare!
