My Inner Geek
First of all, I am an unapologetic GEEK, and I admit it. If you’ve read my blog for a while, then you already know that I am a huge fan of “The Big Bang Theory.” My inner geekiness goes far beyond “The Big Bang Theory” because I am a total Sci-Fi nerd. I admit it. It may not be very sexy to most people, but I am going to tell you why it is to me. I really do love science fiction. Had I gone to the right grad school and had the right advisor, I might have written my dissertation on the Representation of the Cold War in Science Fiction. (Star Trek Example: Federation=The United States [with England as the Vulcans], Klingons=Soviet Union, Romulans=Chinese, etc.) It still might make a great book and research project one day if no one beats me to it. It is not an idea original to me.
Most recently, we have several sci-fi/horror shows that give us just what we want with sexy guys. True Blood has a host of sexy men, some of whom are gay, and MTV’s Teen Wolf has a host of sexy young guys, including the beautifully (and possibly gay) Colton Haynes (Warning: this link is NSFW).
