From a post on Neatorama about Star Wars Adidas:

Geeks and geekettes rejoice, you can finally buy a sweet pair of styling shoes that pay homage to your favorite sci-fi movie.

The word “geekette” struck me as very weird. I’d never heard it used before. What the hell is a geekette? A female geek? Is the word “geek” even gendered in the first place? Is there a need for the distinction?
