Fangirls Don’t Wear Pink

My name is Rosalind, and I’m a geek. I argue over which Star Trek series is the best (TNG FTW!), I explain the fermentation of soy sauce during Chinese dinner, and I can explain to you the story of Solid Snake. I’m also a woman. What do you think of when you read the word […]
