Are you proud to be a nerd or do you hide it like a dirty little secret ?

#2 Posted by telepathic666 (227 posts) - - Show Bio

I wear it like a badge of honor! I mean i kinda act shy about when flirting but that is just to see how nerdy the other person is.

I'm a hot awesometastic nerd, so no, I don't hide it at all. I actually love talking about it with my bros and watching girls trying to intervene in the convos but having nothing to say really, and being totally ignored xD

Well it depends on who I'm talking too, If I see fellow fans of what I like, I'll talk to them about it,If I see people who don't like it, I'll talk them about what they like (something that I might like too). I don't really consider myself a nerd because while I do like comics, I'm also someone who will listen to ghetto hip-hop music, and such.

I wouldn't bring it up to anybody in a conversation but I don't hide my comics if people come to my house.

I don't hide it at all. I wear Green Arrow, Darkwing Duck, Tron, Green Lantern, etc. t-shirts all the time and with pride. When I completed my English semester test in May, I pulled out my trade of Morrison's Batman & Robin and read it casually, like a boss. I just don't see the point in hiding what I love.

I don't hide it in the least. People know I'm into comics, read a lot, love science and science fiction, computers, and play video games a crap ton. I'll talk to people about it if the conversation brings us to that point, but if someone isn't interested I don't try to talk about the nerdy stuff. Working where I do though I find myself in these conversations with little effort so this often makes me happy.

I could never hide it. As a kid I was short, scrawny, good in school, and sucked at every sport I played except track and rollerblading/skateboarding. Imagine if you will, a black kid in the hood, huge glasses, who wasn't interested in music or sports. But cartoons, comics, and Sinbad and Tarzan movies. Flash forward to middle school got into music (Rock, Pop, Alternative). And graduated from simple western comics to Eastern Manga and anime. My friends were outcast like me and eventually helped me come to terms with who and what I am. Most people don't have friends in these cases, I was truely blessed with a great family and a set of friends who loved me unconditionally. Also the older you get the more women begin to value intelligence. I don't hide my comics when I have female company and take women to arcades on dates or to see any super-hero/sci-fi flick that gets my attention. Considering my 4th ended with a woman in my bed? .....Yea i'm pretty damn content with my nerdiness. lol

I'm a geek and proud. In fact in my school, I've become the comic guru, if any one has a comic or superhero related question, they come to me. I've spent many a lunch hour discussing in depth comic book topics to non-geeks and geeks alike.

#12 Posted by grenade728 (748 posts) - - Show Bio

I used to hide it but the past year I said f it and took out The Dark Phoenix Saga after a math test. I really could care less what others think. If you hide it, it will be extremely hard to find people with the same interests as you, especially if they are hiding it as well. Take it from someone who knows first hand. ;)

Yeah geek is more accurate for me too, just not the hot part lol. The word nerd has negative connotations too it in my opinion it. Like I feel there is also the implication of social awkwardness with the word nerd where as to me geek just means into stuff that that is thought of as uncool or unpopular or just geeky stuff like comics, science, math so on and so forth. And a geek can still be cool, a nerd can be too but like I said to me that word has negative connotations to it.

So yeah, I'm a geek and proud. All my friends I'm into sci-fi, comics, science, and stuff like that and I don't care.

Not going to lie. I met my current GF through a mutual nerd friend we have. We both love comics lol, and she loves Pixar movies, so that makes being a huge comic fan easier on me.

So, yes. I'm proud to be a nerd/geek.

Nice explanation

As a black person I used to be like that. I wear glasses (not huge), played sports out on the playground but really wasn't that good, and didnt watch it much on TV. Music was just there. Wasnt a diehard fan but I'd listen to it. Over the years though, I have lost alot of the nerdiness I had during my youth. Instead of buying books all the time, I go shopping for clothes. Listen to way more Hip-Hop, etc. But still a kid at heart who will go on Marvel/DC wiki, or watch WWE.

I think the more proper question should be directed at the OP which asks, "Are you proud of being a monkey's ass?" I hate that some people automatically assume that just because other people read comics cannot be considered anything other than a "geek" or "nerd." And that's the bottom line because Kayvee said so.

I'm nerdy when it comes to my comic book knowledge, but when it comes to being  "book smart" like in school with math or science, I'm not that nerdy. But I do make my love of comics known and I'm pretty sure that anyone who knows me knows I love comics.

Rule number one of being a geek, never say that you're I'm proud to be a geek even though you know it.That's makes you seems less of a geek.If someone asks you why you read comics, just say you are just reading because you want entertainment and not because you want to be a geek

Right, when I ask this question "Proud to be a nerd?" I did not really expect the answers to be so deep or open and I most definitely did not mean to offend or label anyone.

Sadly we all live in a world where society brands everyone, It is called demographics. So, if society wants to class me as a nerd because I read comics, then I am a nerd and f**king proud.
