Hello everyone! Yet another post, but something happened again today that’s been happening to me a lot recently, and I simply had to write a post about it.
So, for some reason people have been asking me a lot of questions about me, my personality, and I always answer that I’m just a nerdy girl (or something similar) and they always tell me to stop “Insulting myself.”
Since when is being a nerd an insult?
I just want people to be able to understand that this concept of being a nerd, is not a bad thing. There’s nothing wrong with being excited about books and movies and fandoms and ships and OTPs, and anything else you can think of. It’s not wrong to be good at school and get good grades, or to wear glasses, or to laugh when your eye doctor says “Don’t Blink.”
And even though I haven’t named all the components of being a nerd, not even close, anything nerdy is okay (as long as it doesn’t become stalkerish and creepy). And I just want everybody who reads this post to spread the word that being a nerd is not an insult. It’s a compliment.
And calling yourself a nerd is not some form of deprecation or an insult – it stating a wonderful fact about yourself.
And for the record – anybody who uses the word nerd as an insult – no offense, but I really hate you.
So… good night! And dftba!
