a female nerd can never understand how it is to be a true nerd. in the end society will pay you a lot of attention regardless of your social type.
while a male nerd can be absolutely invisible and cast aside by 100 percent of humanity. the female will always have a way out of this complete isolation.

On behalf of all my fellow "nerds that look like nerds", I want to apologize for adding fuel to the stereotype fire by being overweight, wearing thick-ass glasses, and not being interested in fashion. I don't mean to make it hard on anyone; I just happen to both be into nerdy hobbies and have the personality and lifestyle that most would have you believe go along with them.

I have to say, though, it makes things easier on me. Aside from thinking I'm cold on first impression, most of the assumptions people make about me from my appearance are pretty accurate. The fact that other nerds can easily recognize me means that it's quite simple for me to make nerdy friends, despite my introversion. The funny thing is that I have plenty of friends who are attractive nerds, and I meet them precisely by being such an obvious nerd that they assume they can talk to me about their interests. I think it's the same with most others like me.

Those of us who are nerds pretty much all know that it has nothing to do with appearance, either by falling outside the stereotype themselves or by knowing people who do. Just being part of the subculture will expose you to the proof, after all.


I love your comment lol. cheers to nerds recognizing nerds!

I get the same reaction sometimes. I've been told I don't look like a typical nerd/otaku, and people are sometimes surprised when they find out.

However, I've also met plenty of people who don't look like a stereotypical nerd, but are nerdy as hell.

It's like any other steryotype. There will be plenty that fit the image, and plenty who don't. You don't need to look or act a certain way to be into something.


I love this comment and def agree!!!



Haha.

I'm very open about my anime hobby though. I'm even pretty nonchalant about my eroge hobby too.

It was funny explaining that to a non-otaku coworker. When I told him what it was (eroge) he looked both horrified and impressed.

MFW ̂Ìm a Nerd̂.....
Well if you want to own it, then own it.



However I am me and just that, I doǹt worry with trying to put labels on myself.




Unless that label is fucking awesome. Then why yes, yes I am.

Now before people judge me and say Im conceited and blah blah.... go away. Anyways point of this post is people definitely judge a book by its cover. No I'm not the "cliche"home all day everyday, wears baggy clothes and messy hair, and is a socially awkward type of nerd/otaku. I like makeup, and dressing up and looking cute. I party as much as other people my age and I have friends and go out and stuff. I even model and i think people assume I'm a "dumb pretty broad" which is so frustrating. So when I participate in a conversation about comic books and anime and etc people are like shocked and its the most annoying reaction.

Does anyone else have this problem? Do you feel like you don't fit into the stereotype of being a geek but you like what you like?


Are you sure you wanted other peoples opinions or did you just want to brag? I think you're average looking anyway. Nothing that would make me think 'oh my god, she's into anime?'.

And to answer this post in general, it's because a lot of people that are into anime are cringey as hell, making us all look bad.


I think you missed the "go away" part but in any case i appreciate all peoples opinions even if I don't share them.


Saying 'go away' doesn't mean you stand above being called out. And sure, you don't share other peoples opinions unless they shower you with compliments. Why did you bother even making this thread?

My "bestie" was pretty attractive for an otaku. She has a real life harem to prove it

I've modeled before too, and worked in the entertainment industry. But I like anime and manga, Asian music, film, etc. I also love reading up on history and science, and I like to keep up to date on Business and technology. I absolutely hate it when I go somewhere and someone tries to lecture me on some "new" gadgets...I tend to stop them halfway and lecture them back on points they've missed or ask them questions that they can't even answer. I would rather go to a bookstore or library and look up something new, than hang out with people. I probably attend less than 10 parties a year on average. I'm totally not a social butterfly, but I'll socalize if it's for work. I get catcalls, whistles and staredowns sometimes when I'm out in public minding my own business, those make me nervous and I try to ignore it as much as possible. Overall, people are surprised with my personality and interests based off of appearance. I consider myself a geek and a nerd and I thoroughly enjoy it.

So, I'm not clean shaved, my hair is all messy because I just woke up, I've got bags under my eyes, I'm wearing a black shirt with some white markings on it that's almost entirely peeled off, it's two X's, an L and an M too big for me, so my tattoos are showing because the cuffs reach all the way up to my elbows and they aren't buttoned up, and my black nike's look like they're about to fall apart, so the only thing that doesn't look like it's about to either fly or crumble off my body, including my body parts, are my jeans. I've planned to go to the store, to buy some crackers and some red bull, I can't remember what I bought anymore, I open up my door, on my way out, I see my neighbor's door (shared entrance) is open, which sends shivers up my spine because I just don't like talking to people and I know she's gonna do the whole small talk thing if she sees me, so I decide to hurry, I turn around to lock my door, and then... it's not my neighbor, it's her sister, she walks up behind me, pinches my ass, and whispers some god awful stuff into my ear that don't need repeating... My neighbor's daughter used to live next door to us and she's about my age, so that should paint a picture of just how old this woman is. I do my slithery snake thing where I smile, back off, and reply with a mixture of thank you and I'm in a hurry, or whatever, and manage to escape, somehow, I shake her off, I shake it off, I shake everything off, except what will be nightmares in the future. I get to the store, and I stand by the aisle where they sell cookies and crackers and buns and what not, and I notice this girl in my peripheral view, slightly younger than me by the look of her clothes, she's got her head turned towards me the entire way, like she's got whiplash or something, and I realize she isn't going to stop staring at me until I turn around and look her in the eye, which I then do. So, she stumbles over... and pulls the entire shelf with her on the floor, causing this huge commotion. I turn around, walk away, and I hate her intensely all the way back home, where I have to find a way to sneak back into my apartment unnoticed. I get back home, no neighbor in sight, I've got my sugar and caffeine rich diet ready for my sixth Bleach marathon. This was at a time when I still had a Facebook-account. I decided I would check my Facebook for activity, and wadayaknow, I have a message from this girl I've known for some time, but haven't spoken to in years, I read her message and I reply her, and basically her end of the conversation goes something like this "Hi. You're there, yay. Yeah, my boyfriend and I are on a break. It's cool. Have you seen x yet? You home? I'm coming over."

And I don't know what's worse. The fact that this keeps happening to me spite looking like I got thrown out of a moving car, or the fact that there's a bunch of a**holes out there who's going to read this and not see the humor in it because he or she is too busy feeling sorry about themselves for how unappealing they perceive themselves to be, so they plan to go the extra mile just to make me feel like even more shit than I already do.

I realize I'm ranting and maybe don't make any sense but I'm bored now and wanna go play some Diablo 3 so I'm going to leave this as is.


Dude... you must be one hell of a looker. You could always go the douchebag route and see if that gets a few of them off your back. Or you know what, do the extremely creepy nice guy routine that should really work.
