Even the word ‘Nerd’ bothers me. I no longer associate it with an intelligent person who would rather sit, read, learn, absorb information. When I hear that word now, I think of the t-shirts with the word on, I think of people wearing oversized, blank lens glasses.
I have heard people calling themselves nerds or geeks because they like to read sometimes. I’ve watched children be asscoiated with it because they are interested in the world around them.
This blog has hit a nerve – which can only be a good thing.
I agree, people should pretend less, read more. I’m all for fashion, but don’t use it to fake a personality. It would actually be ironic to see a real ‘nerd’ wearing one of those t-shirts.
