Geek genderbender

In my lofty position as chickfriend to an assortment of geekboys, and also geek and liking the ladies myself, I consider myself both in and out of the position of Actual Female. I have Female Perspective on some things, but I don't consider myself in the class when I'm giving the geekboys advice on the ladies.

's weird.

Part of this is because I am not standard-issue female, and some things that typically work on the subset of "the ladies" that they're going after just don't work on me, and some of the things I utterly dig are not things that their special interest subset of "the ladies" just don't dig.

It's weird.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
