There was a post on TechCrunch about Ravelry. The guy that wrote the post was snarky but not stupid about knitters and crocheters having their own networking site, but some of his readers had some stupid things to say in the comments.
The last time I checked, there were 80 comments! They were mainly from knitters explaining to the techies that we are not all sitting in our rocking chairs with cats and grandchildren at our feet while we knit. It was quite funny just for the fact that I don't think he or his readers expected that kind of response. I guess we do know how to work the interwebs after all, huh?
It's also funny that computer geeks would jump on the stereotype wagon so easily. I could go on about pocket protectors, big glasses held together with tape, and no chance of ever getting a girl. 😉
