#geek - #As diverse as the geek community, i'm barely seeing any latina geeks.


As diverse as the geek community, i'm barely seeing any latina geeks.

I just realized something in the geek community. As diverse as we are, I've barely noticed any latina geeks. Now before you banter to death about being political, hear me out.

On facebook, instagram, twitter, and more social media services, I see people of different ethnicities of both genders. The only exception is hispanics. I see Latino geeks everywhere, but Latinas are barely a no show. The only 2 reasons I can think of are the "sexy" latina stereotype, and the fact compared Latinos in the geek field(comic books, science, video games, etcetera.), latinas are barely seen in those demographics.

I hope it doesn't start a dumpster fire, but this is something I seen personally for years. I would love feedback of any kind.
