Why must you make it so hard for the rest of us? I’m not going to invoke the “nerdier-than-thou” debate, but I feel, as a nerd among many, that you’re making us look bad.
It’s hard enough that many of us are already awkward around women, but when we try to introduce not only women, but other people in general, to the things we like, you have to come along and act like a total….well, you, and give people more reasons to stigmatize us.
Do you really have to hit on every single girl that signs into Xbox Live? Is it necessary to hit on a girl that just happens to cosplay as your favorite character? And what’s with the creepy anime that you keep asking Funimation to license? I swear, you’re going to end up on an FBI watchlist. Potential life imprisonment aside, you also have the habit of acting like a complete jerk to anybody that isn’t as heavy into a mythos as you’d like.
So what if they get the name of the actor for Q wrong? Who cares if they don’t know the difference between Derpy Hooves and Rainbow Dash? What does it matter if they don’t know a Spartan from and Athenian? My point is, if you keep up this elitist attitude, then you make it harder for the rest of us nerds to spread the happiness that these communities bring.
That’s forgetting to be awesome.
