Fifteen years ago, being a nerd or a geek meant being shunned or outcast for knowing all sorts of things the average normie wouldn't have. It also meant having passion and a thirst for knowledge, be it from the tiny specifications for the various classes of ships in Star Trek to the lore and fluff of WH40k, that's what being a geek or nerd meant.

Nowadays, any whore or numale can pick up a pair of thick-rimmed glasses, hold up a cheap copy of Captain America or some obscure, shitty comic and call themselves a nerd and they're suddenly super-popular with the boys/girls without knowing or even appreciating jack-shit about the breadth of imagination and thinking that went into making such a piece.

God, I hate normies.

And unlike this whore, true nerds don't follow sports. They are a waste of time, resources and energy. Now where did you hide my d20s?!

As someone who used to get into fights with people based solely on the fact that I apparently used big words I fucking resent the present day "nerd culture". I'd like to see these apparent "nerds" even so much as install a game from 20 floppy disks and figure out why it isn't loading. It's so frustrating when cool nerdy things get hijacked by these morons. It's easy to call them out on their shit though I find, all you have to do is start talking about anything to a certain level and just watch them try and scramble for some buzz words or bullshit to make it sound like they have even a modicum amount of knowledge.

I feel ya. Goddamned. I've intentionally discarded about 60% of my vocabulary, over the past ten years. My normal speech, not even trying to sound "smart", would have people scratching their heads and awkwardly asking me to describe certain words. I feel dirty, sometimes. Especially when I think of a concept or idea that I want to describe, and I KNOW there's a word for "it": but can no longer remember.

Everything else that you've mentioned, I'm okay with. Since having been a fat, nerdy teenager: I've learnt to stay in excellent physical shape and remain well-payed. I get along with the "cool kids" now, because I've overcome my social awkwardness. Every now and then I run in to some asshole who thinks he's better than me, because "someone like me" couldn't "possibly" know what I'm talking about.

I have fun with those.

I remember a time when nerds were outcasts. Can't believe I'm saying this, but... ahhh those were the days.

You know, I've been thinking about that for a second.

Okay, they want to make more money by appealing to normies? That's fine. Capitalism at work. But why is the content so shit? It's shit because their main appeal is trying to conform to a bullshit political/social agenda. Why can't it be subtle to the point where very few people would even realize it? Why can't they make new content without bastardizing existing ones? They're sacrificing good and existing content to pander to retards that won't even buy your shit. That's where the backlash comes from.

But, yeah. Being a "nerd" now means you like Star Wars, Zelda, etc. And you know what? I couldn't give a fuck. I still find it funny when I talk to a woman that likes something like Star Wars and they have no idea what I'm talking about. Oh well. If they put out for Star Wars, I'm fine with that. Degenerate media, tbh.

To me, being smart means "nerd". Smarter than "average". "Nerd" == "high IQ". Media whores are media whores. Whether they like Supergirl, Suicide Squad, or <insert trendy show that I can't think of, because I haven't watched cable TV in almost ten years>.

Sometimes I don't wear my prescription glasses when going to certain places. Partly because my eyes aren't that bad, and the extra effort helps them from slipping further in to lens-induced myopia. But mostly because I don't want the people there to think that I'm one of them.

I got lasers fired at my eyeballs so I didn't have to wear glasses any more, fuck those people.

True nerds who wear glasses: save up for a while and get lasik. It's the tits. If there's an alien invasion, or civilization collapses, or you get stranded on an island, do you want to be stuck with your shitty eyes? If those glasses break, you're seeing the world in 480i or worse for the rest of your life. You gonna play your top 5 desert island videogames with shitty, weak eyes? I don't think so.
