I have noticed that if girls do something that isn't male geeky it's not considered geeky. While many girls and women like male geek things like video games(I used to be, but now I am not, sometimes I mourn this), and fooling around with linux, I don't see how it is somehow not geeky to be in a subculture based around fashion or to spend hours beading elaborate items. Like what exactly defines geeky? I always think of it as being based around out of the way interests that set you apart from society a bit. I think that watching anime will be defined as 'non geek' soon because so many women watch it. I don't understand this seperation here.
