Geeks I Need Your Help!

Last night I read an article a mother posted about her daughter in first grade. She had been bullied at school for having a Star Wars waterbottle by the boys in her class, because girls aren't supposed to like Star Wars!

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

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

Bullies suck and geeks rule! Spread the word! :)


  1. Aw, poor thing! That reminds me of pre-school in P.R., where I had to stay with the other girls during recess even though the boys were talking about Voltron, which was so much cooler than what the girls were talking about.

    That said, I think this girl is going to the wrong school, because I know lots of girls into Star Wars and other geeky pursuits.
