This is not cool on any level! If you've got time, you should post a comment in the article in support of the little girl who's name is Kaite. Here's the link to the article via Epbot, a geek blog run by Jenn from CakeWrecks.com.
Geek Girls, Activate!If you don't feel like posting a long comment you can tweet your support using the tag #MayTheForceBeWithKatie. The official Star Wars and NASA twitter accounts have both tweeted about it since last night! And this morning they did a post about it on the Official Star Wars blog!
Not being nearly as important as NASA or the official Star Wars team, I decided to do my best to help the only way I can, by posting about it. :) So this morning I made up a Star Wars treasury in honor of Katie and all my fellow girl geeks out there! That a look! :)
Star Wars is for Girls Too! :D
