Alright my friend. Here we go. You’ve pissed me off. Congratulations, that’s not an easy thing to do. I’m just totally going to ignore the fact that you not only gendered the Tolkien fan base, but also said that the girls are the lesser when it comes to being active members of the Tolkien fan base. Because that’s a stupid idea, and it should have died a long time ago. 

You seem to think that I’m a newbie in the ways of Tolkien (because I’m pretty, apparently. And because of my gender). I have read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Hobbit, The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, Tolkien reader, Children of Hurin, The Legend of S & G (although that’s norse, not middle earth) in their entirety, and several of them multiple times. I have read letters and diary entries of Tolkien, I’ve thoroughly analyzed the movies that have been produced from his works from head to toe. I could recite to you from memory the history of the elves, and I could name off the vast majority of Finwë, Elwë, and Ingwë’s houses: children’s names, grandchildren’s names (those pertinent to Middle earth’s history) and so on. You want a description of the fall of Numenor? I can do that. You want me to tell you all about the Valar and Maiar and who is in accordance with who? I can do that. Do you want the names of the stars that Varda created before the coming of the firstborn into middle earth, after Mandos suggested that she do so? I can do that. (In fact, I could tell you the stars AND what they’re called by the elves). 

Just because I’m a girl, or any gender that you don’t think fits the rubric of “nerd” or “tolkien fan” does not mean I could not completely SLAY you in Tolkienverse.
