I have accepted a very high degree of "geek" among my husband and children. Although I did not grow up in a particularly geeky family, Abraham did. I didn't really understand the depths of it before we married. He and his brothers played a lot of Dungeons and Dragons-- always playing good guy characters-- but D&D nonetheless. Abe was a hard core Star Trek fan and science fiction and fantasy aficionado. If you aren't raised "geek", I don't believe it ever becomes your native culture. You can accept it, enjoy it, embrace it, but are you ever really a part of it?
I suppose my children are being raised "geek". As Clark says, "geek is the new cool"-- D&D, Dr. Who, robotics competitions, Sherlock. And now we can add foam-sword and weapon construction and battles to the geek list.
Clark has some friends over in Sandy who get together to play, but I had some reservations about him joining that group regularly. I encouraged him to get a group together on our side of the valley that didn't involve my driving anywhere. Their group is steadily growing as more guys come and see how much fun they have.
