I find it funny, since this is one of those cases where it's someone who doesn't have any kids of her own talking, or rather, lecturing, about what is or isn't good for the well-being of a child. The topic of proud geeks came up, and she went on a tear about how you should never call a child a geek because it's labeling them, and you should never label any child. The fact that it's the kids calling themselves geeks, being proud of the fact that they're geeks, and reveling in geek culture is irrelevant.
Will a child be irreparably harmed by calling himself a geek, or, in turn, by his or her parent repeating it with a smile on their face?
