To tell you the truth I believe there are loads of female nerds/geeks out there……however, I also believe a lot of lasses ether deny it or hide the fact they like these kinds of things because its not socially acceptable.
Is it mans fault? NO!
Social pressure comes from both sides.
When I was in school my teachers constantly kept telling me that the most important thing in life was to be accepted by your peers. The female group mentality would not allow anyone that didn’t fit there idea of perfection in there bitchy femininity to get away without a good beating.
T-o I have read similar stories happen to nerd/geek boys.
people always ask: what is a nerd? answer: It is someone who loves to study.
*Being a nerd doesn’t mean you will be rich or smart with computers it just means you know a lot a random things (DB “I’m not smart, I just know a lot of useless junk.”)*
what is a Geek? answer: A person who obsess of a particular topic.
*Even nerds can geek-out.*
I personally believe that pop culture over romances the idea of being a nerd/geek to the point where people ignore the amount of social isolation a lot of these victims of bullying have had to grow up with. T-o If you could find a secure group of friends you were fine however, most of the time you would find yourself on the receiving end of the bitchy stick due to your odd interests or strange piece of information you come out with.
Parents will keep there girls away from things like comics and games due to the fact they fear there child will be seen as different making them in reflection standout uncomfortably out in a crowd.
things I hear form parents on buses and while I’m working.
parent 1″My daughter really likes spider man.”
parent 2 “You will need to shift her to frozen before her birthday.”
farther to son: “You can have any magazine”
*picks peppa pig*
“You can’t have that people will think there is something wrong with you.”
The magazine scenario happens a lot.
For this reason a lot of girls don’t get into games and comics until they are way older.
