I really hate the Idiot Nerd Girl meme, so I decided to stage a cheerful coup with the aid of some friends. Join us?

I suposse that the ‘Idiot Nerd Girl’meme actually makes sense when people pretend to like something just because it’s trendy. I really liked this though. 

Yeah, but if that’s what it’s actually about,

1. Why isn’t there no corresponding Idiot Nerd Boy meme?


2. Why is the gag in the overwhelming majority either her professing enthusiasm for something she doesn’t know about in minute detail, or her self-identifying as a nerd or gamer despite liking a genre other than FPSs or enjoying media outside of the central nerd canon? They’re mocking inexperience and nonconformity, not disingenuity.

(If you’re interested, this is a great summation of one part of the problem.)

This is the best reaction to the whole “fake geek girl” idea!  I especially love “Hasn’t read all 900 issues of Batman / NEITHER HAVE YOU”

My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings

and you are a fake nerd girl.

The thing is I knew someone in high school who would have said those EXACT words. He was obsessed with Shelley and hated women.

That dude you knew in high school : Shelley :: people who play “Rockin’ in the Free World” at conservative political rallies : Neil Young
