ZeroCorpse: tchau: Geek girls can be very pretty. My ex fiance was very pretty, but had everything that made geek/nerd girls what they are including1) social awkwardness2) unreasonable hate for anything attractive of the same sex3) unstable mental makeup4) love of firefly, neil gaimen, doctor who5) fluctuating weight gainShe had other mental issues, thus why she's an ex, but there's a lot of very attractive geek/nerd girlsI never said geek girls couldn't be pretty. I think my fiancee is beautiful. However, I have to ask you this about your ex: Did she make a habit of posing half-naked on webcams for the world to see?And did she ever get picked on by other girls-- I mean, really picked on-- for being interested in those mainstream interests like Firefly, Neil Gaiman, and Doctor Who? Because YES, those things are MAINSTREAM entertainment, not niche media. Doctor Who is one of the most-watched shows on television. Neil Gaiman is a relatively popular writer. Pretty much everything Whedon does is of interest to a large section of society.Could she tell you how many pips a Captain has on his collar in Star Trek? Could she list Superman's weaknesses? Did she know the rules for 2nd Edition D&D? Did she excel at math and suck at sports? Was she keenly interested in computers or engineering to the point of obsession?Or did she just like to watch a few science fiction and fantasy shows and read the occasional manga?

mekki: 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./some geeks drone on and on about D & D//other geeks drone on and on about Fritz Lang///no geeks is more geeky than the other one
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.
ZeroCorpse: [img9.imageshack.us image 620x496]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 image 250x355]My point is that this whole "oh my ...
SlothB77: I am hooked on New Girl. Schmidty is the best. But there only needs to be one. Oversaturation will ruin it all.
jayhawk88: But look how quirky she is! <b>A banjo in her living room!</b> She orders in tomato soup! SO MANY BOOKS!
OtherLittleGuy: Prefer:[i68.photobucket.com image 500x750]
dennysgod: Love me some Zooey
Mugato: I can't really watch anything she's in (except for Hitchhiker's Guide) and I know she's pushing the "I'm just a dorky geek" thing too hard but those eyes.... I'm only human.
