Yes! Finally, someone has posted a "real" nerdy girl.

Inchoate: I'm insulted by the opinion that nerdy girls somehow look up to Tina Fey as an exemplar of their kind. What in the hell?

This.. is so true. I can't stand her nor do I think of her as a nerd. In my mind, the closest thing to a nerdy female role-model, for me, is Kari Byron. Plus, she's smokin'.

/One thing I found is that almost all of my nerdy female friends are bisexual, me included. WTF is with that?!

This: This. The hottest nerd I know is a blonde without glasses... who's an obsessive World of Darkness and board-game geek. But she dresses nerdy... or at least a nerd's idea of cool - geeky T-shirts, underneath a big black leather Matrix-esque long-coat.

Do me a favour? Tell her about my websites?

EsteeFlwrPot: Id10t Error Alert: I despise these story's that try to tell people what they should like. Shouldn't you be with somebody cause they make you happy not because it is hip or cool. These are people with feelings and emotions not fashion accessories.

I was with you upto the part where you said people have feelings.

Megsabelle: Are all girls on FARK nerds by definition?

I am a huge fan of Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. I read all 7 Potter books in 1 month because I loved it so much. Sometimes I didnt go outside at all. I only stopped reading to eat and sleep or go to class.

I'm habitually drawn to these types, but there are downsides. They're usually working the "Geek" angle intentionally, or they're "geeks" for a reason; social anxiety disorders, for instance.

That sound you here is the sudden vacuum created as a million farkers click on your profile.

But you are right about one thing. A good portion of 'nerd' girls are bi or at least don't mind playing the other side of the fence from time to time.

"Nerd Porn Auteur" - Ernie Cline

I notice that there don't seem to be any porno movies made for guys like me.
All the porn I've come across is targeted at beer swilling- sports bar dwelling-alpha males.
Men who like their women stupid, and submissive.

Men who can only get it up for mono-syllabic c**k hungry nymphos with gargantuan breasts and a 3 word vocabulary.
Adult films are populated with these collagen-injected, lyposuctioned women, many of whom have resulted to surgery and self-mutilation in an attempt to look the way they've been told to look.

These aren't real women, they're objects.
And these movies aren't erotic, they're pathetic.
These vacuum headed fark bunnies don't turn me on, they disgust me.

Not that I'm against pornography, I mean, I'm a guy.
And Guys need porn.
FACT.

Like a preacher needs pain,
Like a needle needs a vein,
Guys need porn.

But I don't want to watch this misogynistic He-Man woman hater porn,
I want to watch porno movies with guys like me in mind.

Guys who know the sexiest thing in the world is a woman who is smarter you are.
You can have the whole cheerleading squad,
I want the girl in the tweed coat and the horn-rimmed glasses.

Betty Bitabowski, the valedictorian.
Oh, yea!

First I want to copy her trig homework,
Then I want to make mad, passionate love to her.
For hours and hours,
Until she reluctantly asks if we can stop,
Because she doesn't want to miss Battle Star Galactica.

Suma Cum Laude, baby,
That is what I call erotic.

Do you see that type of woman in a contemporary adult film?
No!
Which is why I'm going to start writing and directing geek porno.

I will become the quintessential nerd porn auteur.
And the women in my movies will be the kind that drive nerds like me mad with desire.

I'm talking about the girls that used to fark up the grading curve.
The girls in the Latin Club.
The national honour society.

Chick with weird clothes.
Braces.
4 eyes.
And a 4.0 GPA.

Brainy, articulate girls,
With MENSA cards in their purses,
And chips on their shoulders.

MY porn starlets will come in all shapes and sizes,
MY porn stars will be too busy working on their PhDs to go to the gym.

In my porn movies, the girls won't even have to get naked,
They'll just take the guys down to the rec room and beat them repeatedly at Chess.
And then talk to them for hours about heizendorf's uncertainty principal,
Underlying social metaphors in the Aliens movies.

Buy stock in some hand cream companies,
Because there is about to be a major shortage.

And I'm not just talking about straight porn,
Oh no.
There should be fark films for my nerd brothers of all sexual orientations.
Gay nerd porn flicks with titles like Dungeons and Drag Queens.

This idea is a gold mine.
I am going to make millions, because this country is full of database programmers, and electronics engineers that aren't getting the loving they so desperately need.

And you can help.

If you are an intelligent woman who is interested in breaking into the adult film industry.
And if you can tell me the name of Luke Skywalkers home planet,
Then you are hired.

It doesn't matter if you think you're overweight or unattractive.
It doesn't matter if you don't think you're beautiful.
You are beautiful,
And I will make you a star.

\ADMIN - not sure if this is kosher, please remove if I've stepped over the line.

Retodd: Does Olivia Munn count?

I can has Munnday?
 
2008-06-23 10:48:44 AM  
IdBeCrazyIf had it right when he mentioned enthusiasm. I'd add confidence and intelligence as well.

Maybe I'm weird, correction: I am weird, but anyway... perhaps I'm a statistical outlier in that as long as a woman has those three qualities, I don't really care which fashion trend she follows.

Are girls in glasses cute? Definitely.
Does wearing glasses make a girl a nerd? No.

In my experience, a lot of the nerdy girls I've met seem to try really hard to be a "true nerd" and "one of the guys", which makes hanging out with them tiresome at times. Relax, you don't need to impress me.

/Regardless, as a redblooded man, keep posting them hot wimminz.

emocomputerjock: This is not a redhead thread.

Nope, but she has a sharp enough wit to cut, that I think her smarts count as a flag for the nerd category. Plus really... she's a hot red head. Do you need anymore excuse to talk about her.

Megsabelle: Yeah, why is that?

Can't talk about it here... I'm already on thin ice with the powers that be.

Oh lord. I should've realized that was an AW comment before I typed it. Oh well. But, whoring aside, 'tis true. I don't think I've met a nerdy female who wouldn't make out (and go down on) with a hot chick if given a chance. I think all my nerdy guy friends are all a lot luckier than their jock and prep counterparts because of this.

2008-06-23 10:50:47 AM  
Intelligence has always been attractive to a lot of guys, when we're looking for women with whom to actually spend time with. You can't compare that to images in the media, because we never get to know those women, aren't forced to spend time with them, and they don't speak their minds. Thus, they're all visually attractive.

My wife is very intelligent, a certifiable bookworm, and although I met her in a club and was physically attracted to her, she could have easily ruined it by opening her mouth and emitting a series of high-pitched whines/squeals/babblings. I was smitten from the first time we had a real conversation. Other, arguably hotter women, have failed hard once they open their mouths.

My wife also has perfect vision, FWIW. I'm jealous.

Yes. Natalie Portman (not her real name) is friggin' brilliant.

Also, I don't watch SNL, but Tina Fey is extremely funny in 30 Rock and has made some good movies.
