Nerds are the New Douchebags

A few months ago I posted a rant over on my sadly neglected sister site, Lucky Punkass, on the monetization of “nerd culture” and the marketing of geekdom by poser frauds like Chris Hardwick.

This clip pretty much sums it up.

From The Big Bang Theory to Comicon cosplay ludicrousness, the cooption of nerd culture is currently reaching peak bullshit.

Out come the cool kids, ready to dress up and call themselves “nerds.” Phonysploiting some fake high school victimization narrative and pretending geek culture is a minority subculture rather than the de facto engine that runs the entire entertainment industry.

What a joke.

Someone seriously needs to start a massive cultural pushback against Nerd America, every bit as phony and a marketing strategy as douchebag culture was in the mid 2000s. Maybe that person should be me.

“Librarian” hotts are still exempt from mock I hope.

Perhaps we should start stuffing them into lockers.

So now it’s cool to be not cool?

Well I was not cool before it was cool to be not cool. How hipster is that?

Nerds raising false flags control us. That’s why. Nerds are cool. War is peace. Ignorance is slavery. Sons.

Nerd chic is a joke from pro athletes wearing Urkel Glasses to 80’s day-glo being remarketed. I fart in Nerd Chics general direction. Speaking of Day-Glo’s come back could be a great topic for DW’s “What’s wit the” segment.
