What I really hate is when there's an already pretty girl and then they throw a pair of glasses on her and I'm suddenly masturbating.

I don't see how they would factor in to the poop/spider scenario, but certainly if you put some effort into it there may be a market for photos containing all three.

There is nothing about this woman that is geeky, nerdy, or awkward. There is not one single thing to mark her as a nerd or geek in the traditional sense.

No, my friends, what you see above is a hot girl who is wearing glasses. They're not even particularly nerdy glasses. They're the most popular style out there (rectangles), and they probably cost her $400 at LensCrafters. She doesn't even have thick lenses.

She's not plain-looking, fat, ugly, pimply, weird-looking, or awkwardly ginger. She has a model-pretty face, great legs, and a nice rack. There's nothing about this girl that would preclude her from being popular or joining the cheerleading squad. Frankly, you'd expect to see her on the cover of Cosmopolitan. She's  that pretty.

When are you guys going to learn that slapping a pair of glasses on a woman doesn't make her a geek. Neither does playing video games. My 80-year-old mother plays video games! Video games have been mainstream since everyone contracted Pac-Man fever in the 1980s.

Look... Nerds and geeks were traditionally the unconventional-looking people. The "different" people. The ugly or plain people. The ones who would be laughed at if they tried to join the Pom-Pon Team or hang out with the popular people. If you're hot enough to BE a popular girl, chances are you have no idea what it is to be treated like a geek, seriously called a geek (as an insult), and hang around with actual geeks.

I went in search of images of women who might actually be geeks or nerds online, and I learned something: Most of the real ones don't post their picture anywhere. It's the ones who  know they're pretty who are confident posting tons of photos. Still, here's one woman who I'm pretty sure was always called a geek or nerd. This image shows a little contrast between the reality of being a geek, and Ms. Hottie up there who doesn't even get close.

www.mildlyentertaininghumour.com

My point is that this whole "oh my god I'm wearing glasses I'm such a geek!" thing is wearing thin. We all know damned well that the hot chicks in glasses never had to put up with being teased over their interests or looks. We all know that they're all just a pair of contact lenses away from looking model-pretty. We all know that most of them wouldn't know deep, nerdy details like the name of the worst episode of Star Trek, or how to read a THAC0 chart, or what Peter Parker's actual high school girlfriend's name was (and no, it wasn't Mary Jane  or Gwen). These are chicks whose geekiness extends no further than playing cell phone games or getting into Farmville. They're about as socially-rejected as their high school's homecoming queen. They never have to worry about boys finding them attractive or asking them out. They don't get bullied by the mean girls. They don't have boys  laugh at them when they express interest. They don't get asked out by cute guys just as a joke, only to have the guy stand them up and laugh about it the next day.

Real geeky and nerdy girls  do go through that stuff.

It's not the glasses, or a mild interest in some "geek" things that makes one a geek. It's the way you were treated by your peers because of your looks or interests, and how your personality develops as a result of that treatment that makes you a nerd or geek. It's your determination to be yourself no matter what the false, preppy, popular people say.

The Trekkie up there isn't ugly (I think she's kinda cute, actually), but it's a pretty good bet she wasn't tight with the popular girls, or nominated for Prom Queen when she was a teenager. And there's nothing wrong with that-- In fact, some of us think that's a  positive thing.You can bet she's also an intelligent person who can hold a decent conversation, and who treats others with respect.

Yes, I resent it. Why? Because if I want to see model-pretty girls, that's easy, because they're extroverts who make a habit of posing half-naked online. I  like real nerds and geeks, and it's getting hard to sort through all the hot bimbos to find just one genuine nerd.

It's the same sort of frustration I get when trying to find one good game in the iTunes or Google Play stores. I have to sort through all the Angry Birds knock-offs and fart apps to find something great. Over-saturation makes the genuine article hard to locate and cheapens the real thing.

It does seem geek stuff is cooler now than it was back in the 1980s and 1990s when some of the archaic geeks like myself were around. But not THAT much cooler.

Wearing glasses doesn't make the wearer a nerd/geek. But if they're nice to look at, I won't complain that loudly.

Pretty people can get away with having nerdy interests.

Hell, even moderately attractive women who truly have nerdy interests will have men beating a path to their door.

For example, it was here on Fark that I learned that a woman under 200 pounds can go to an SCA event and become an instant goddess.

Or as the Onion put it once,

Anyone with a banjo in their living room is just trying to show how quirky they are. there is no other possible explanation for it. it's why the banjo was invented.

devilEther: Anyone with a banjo in their living room is just trying to show how quirky they are. there is no other possible explanation for it. it's why the banjo was invented.


That's a common misconception. The banjo was actually invented to provide an appropriate soundtrack for shady characters running from pursuers, usually angry townsfolk or a small group of sheriff's deputies.

If anything, a banjo is an indicator that you're an untrustworthy huckster, who should probably be run out of town limits immediately.

I don't think she's a faux geek. She's just not geeky as in fandom geeky. She probably has never played Halo. When you mention Sam, Dean and old Blue eyes, she thinks of the Rat Pack and not Supernatural. And the only comics she has probably read are the strips on the Sunday edition. HOWEVER, she does strike me as being a Portland style-geek. She probably knows more about obscure folk bands from tiny Vermont towns than all of Fark put together. She probably has a huge collection of almost forgotten romantic films from the silent, German cinema era. Her craft room is probably stacked with vintage, hand carved buttons, one of a kind screen printed fabrics and scissors once held by Coco Channel, herself.

In short, she's probably very geeky. But it's artsy geek.

Deneb81: Yes, I resent it. Why? Because if I want to see model-pretty girls, that's easy, because they're extroverts who make a habit of posing half-naked online. I like real nerds and geeks, and it's getting hard to sort through all the hot bimbos to find just one genuine nerd.

It's the same sort of frustration I get when trying to find one good game in the iTunes or Google Play stores. I have to sort through all the Angry Birds knock-offs and fart apps to find something great. Over-saturation makes the genuine article hard to locate and cheapens the real thing.

/end rant
//TL;DR, I'm sure.

You sound fat.

Also, you sound every bit as looks obsessed and exclusionary as the people you demean in that post.

Seriously - get over yourself.


How would you feel if say, a heterosexual person pretended to be gay and claimed they knew all about being gay, despite never having to face any discrimination. Would you tell a gay person who complained to "get over themselves"?

While nerds/geeks were commonly beat up and bullied in school and maybe jeered at a bit as an adult they were never typically beaten to a bloody pulp, run out of town, had their property vandalized (more than just a TP job), or ruthlessly shamed for merely existing the way gays have. Sure there's a few outlier geeks that have had that happen, but nowhere near the same numbers as gays. Nerds and geeks were tolerated a hell of a lot more than gays were back in the day.

I get the outrage, but I can't get myself too worked up over it.

She can play my banjo. For the remainder of this thread, I shall refer to my penis as 'Banjo'.

Dueling banjos is kind of gay, don't you think?

Geek girls can be very pretty.  My ex fiance was very pretty, but had everything that made geek/nerd girls what they are including

1) social awkwardness
2) unreasonable hate for anything attractive of the same sex
3) unstable mental makeup
4) love of firefly, neil gaimen, doctor who
5) fluctuating weight gain

She had other mental issues, thus why she's an ex, but there's a lot of very attractive geek/nerd girls
