:i’m thinking that that post’s message resonates in…
yeahhhh that post makes me pretty uncomfortable tbh just because like lmao that’s…the only way I have to interact with 90% of other human beings
yeah it’s a weird post… i feel like the whole “lol shove nerds in lockers” semi-ironic tumblr fandom thing is pretty uncomfortable sometimes, it can be kind of an elitist thing, making people feel more secure by putting down and dismissing people who seem more vapid or obnoxious to them without taking into account what actually motivates people like that (often they’re young or are trying to escape bad things in their regular lives, or maybe they’re just harmlessly having their own kind of fun and this isn’t… really a big part of their lives so they don’t put a ton of thought into it, who cares)
like nerd culture is FULL of bad shit that 100% needs to be criticized, and that includes flawed coping mechanisms like the socially-rejected nerd using callous misogyny as an outlet for his anger. but i think these really broad dismissals are too vague to mean anything constructive and they’re actually just to make nerds feel secure in being better than those vague other nerds who are doing it all wrong.
