A few of my female friends asked me why I thought that there seemed to be a lot of single men in science fiction fandom. I told them I thought that was really just an urban legend, pointing to my husband and his friends. Then I thought about the existence of this thread. I showed it to my friends, and they had the same response that I did:
Some myths about fandom are baseless, but some individuals have worked really hard to earn their solitary lives. These people shouldn't be surprised when their attitudes keep them viewed in a negative light.
Way to keep the stereotype alive guys! Well done!
