Modern Pop Culture and Women

This is another post that has been floating around in the back of my mind for a little while. It's something I see all the time, and a lot of guys don't even realise they do it. Why in the world of pop culture, when a female proclaims to be a fan of something, does …

Hello once again nerds, nerdettes and Tim!
