I am a lesbian and a science fiction geek, both at the same time.
I wrote this story on a fan site that I created in 2004:
I used to go to a weekly social gathering of the British Columbia Science Fiction Fan Association called FRED. If you were polite, and most weren’t, it stood for:
Forget Reality–Enjoy Drinking.
As a new female to the group, I was the subject of some discussion and finally, one lone male ventured towards the group of gals I was sitting with and hit on me. At the time, the early 90’s, there seemed to be only two pick up lines– “Can I rub your back?” and “Which do you like better, Classic or NextGen?”
The sacrificial male used the latter. Not ever having been particularly interested in the Star Trek universe, I said brightly “V.”
Flirtation forgotten, the guy recoiled in horror, sputtering, “The only thing that you could have said that would have been worse would be-”
“Battlestar Galactica?” I said, sipping my drink.
I didn’t get hit on for quite a long time after that.
