jewelfox: A portrait of a foxgryphon with a beak, black fur, magenta hair, fox ears, and a neckband with a large jewel on it. (Default)

A slide deck by Garaan Means that neatly and elegantly destroys much of geek culture, by showing how utterly self-defeating it is to police others based on superficial identity markers while allowing yourself to be exploited by the capitalist nonworking class.

Also by stating the obvious.

I'm not going to try and convince you not to have bacon on your sandwich, but I think the results when we portray ourselves as a group of people who uniformly place great value on cured pork and little value on our lives outside our work are results worth examining.
