So, for those of you that missed it, someone on Fandom Secrets posted a secret expressing relief at seeing a "normal" sci fi fan. Complete flamebait, but hell, the responses were hilarious.
Then one person went on a rant basically stating that if she had the choice between being a vapid fashion whore or a geek, she'd choose geek. Now, you guys know me - pretty much the only things feminine about me are my twat and tits, but for some reason that one (especially the way she phrased it) really got up my arse. We get enough shit about the stereotype, now people are actively promoting it? I'm sorry, if your ideal of a true geek or nerd is that they must be a four hundred pound fuck-ugly woofer then I'm gonna smack the shit outta you. For fucks sake, there's such a thing as being presentable in public. Put on a clean t-shirt for fucks sake and take care of yourself. I'm not talking about four rounds of lipo and a boob job, but at least change your underpants occasionally and develop some sort of conversational ability and idea of personal space, yanno?
I guess the trope is true...geeks are nerds with social skills.
