People at work were teasing each other and calling one another “geek” in an email thread, so someone sent out a pointer to this quiz called The Geek Social Aptitude Test (GSAT for short). It was cute set of Yes/No questions and I was basically enjoying it until this one came up:


Seriously, in the 21st century, is the possibility still so remote that a person whose sexual preference is for men would be taking this quiz, as to warrant such an exclusionary question? There were a few others that betrayed the quiz maker’s assumptions about the quiz taker, but this was the most blatant.

It’s not that I so desperately want to know whether I am a Geek according to this silly quiz. It’s about being reminded that you’re not the “default human” and it’s like a punch in the face. Every. Damn. Time.
