"REAL geek girls don't exist! Get back in the kitchen!"

why do geeky guys think this??? it pisses me off because I'm a geek girl; I love anime and sci-fi and the occasional fantasy novel. Why are people dumbfounded when they find out a girl (especially a cute/hot one) likes geeky stuff???

Sorry dude but you're a special :snowflake:.
I like some anime but I don't flaunt it around because it gives people a negative view of you. that's how you get teased for it.

Also blocking people like a child isn't a good idea. You made a thread in a public forum and people are giving you a honest opinion about the situation and how you're reacting.

if you're sick of "mean people making fun of me11! ;( " go ask a forum mod to lock the thread.

Your style seems to be less geek and more modern punk/scene. The two areas intertwine when it comes to matters of Sci-Fi, and your declared interest in Cyberpunk and anime shifts you more towards this than the so-called geek culture. Keep in mind that this is in no way related to punk culture of the late 80s/early 90s as punk relates more to being a counter-culture. Whilst it also shares some common traits even with mainstream culture, and even ends up influencing it and vice versa. To call yourself is a geek appears to be an erroneous label as it doesn't encompass the full extent of your personality. Don't sell yourself short.

Sounds like you're trying too hard. Just enjoy what you enjoy and quit worrying about what other people think of you. It's stuff like this that pisses people off...

Or, how about this:

Not label yourself, because labeling is what causes a lot of problems in social, political, mental, and sometimes physical situation, and worry about being the best person you can be.

I just don't understand the need to be called something or to fit in one group. It doesn't make any sense to me. It's like you're taking all the fun out of individuality and discovering who you are as a person just so you can fit into some sort of culture that started from a word used to bully and degrade people. Taking the power out those words, to me, is not making them into something better but causing further division. To me, taking the power out of those words means not using them to label any person.

To me, it really doesn't matter what subculture you think you fit in, because no person is an exact stereotype of their subculture and as they shouldn't be.

They're probably more dumbfounded that you consider liking anime, sci-fi and fantasy to be the criteria for the definition of "geek".

Anything really geeky is often aimed at males, and they don't expect females to be into that stuff.

According to most accepted definitions, I don't fit the description of "weeaboo".

from urbandictionary.com:
A non japanese person who basically denounces their own culture and calls themselves japanese. They try to learn japanese through the anime they watch and usually end up pronouncing it wrong and looking like a complete idiot.

KEEP IN MIND: that a non-japanese person can like the culture, watch anime, speak the language and RESPECT THE CULTURE, while still keeping in touch with there own. Which keeps them from being a Weeaboo, japanophile, ect.

I like the culture, I watch some anime, I OCCASIONALLY speak the language (only in full sentences and when speaking to someone else who is also speaking Japanese, not Japanglish) and I have respect for the culture. The only thing I can relate to is not respecting my own culture, but I live in the U.S.; there isn't really a decent culture here.

I find some of my challenging opponets in games are female. Sure other guys have beaten me but most of the time all I get is the same tactic from those guys. Girls seem to provide more of a... alternating challenge. Not the same thing over and over. Especially in RTS games the few I've met, I wish more where into them.

Why do girls get told to go to the kitchen? Cause those guys saying that just can't deal with it.

A real geek would never admit to being a geek, be it male or female, hence why such a stereotype still exists-- well, at least in your case. And judging by the fact that you said that are an anime addict, you would be much more of what is known as a weeaboo than a geek.

I'm just saying.

Sure, some dudes gets "surprised" by this at times. But they normally just take it as a good thing eventually in my experience.

And by the way, who the hell cares if you are labeled into a "geek" category or not?.
If you like something, then just damn like it.

well, i certainly love sci-fi and MANY fantasy novels.

You are no geek.
geeks donīt label themselves as geeks.
they donīt care.


I know what you are:
some friends of yours probably have watched some episodes of "the big bang theory" (which is quite mainstream and not geeky btw) and liked it.
so you jump on the train, wanting to become a "geek" because itīs so fucking popular.

Psh, you're no "geek girl". You come off as an attention whore, using your slight knowledge in "geek culture" to garner a few extra points on the attractive meter. But when a guy tries to pull out a full on conversation on a given nerd topic, you'll falter to a "huh, what's that?" ploy :no:

Seriously, nothing is more annoying than a girl that has to grab her brownie points by feigning interest in some typically masculine associated topic (games and comics normally). Either you know it or you don't, gender shouldn't mean a damn thing. Eff this "girl gamer" and "girl geek" BS. These things aren't gender specific; be a gamer, be a geek, and leave gender out of it.

Deal with it, we all have steryotypes. Whites are always rich. Kids with glasses are nerds. black guys are the killers, murderers, rapists, or any other crime committing scum. Germans are still Nazi controlled. All Arabs are terrorists. Priests are little boy examiners (If you know what I mean). Asians are incredibly smart. Girls are supposed to be in the kitchen. Police officers eat doughnuts all day. Teachers live in the schools. Parents don't have a life. Emo people are the devils children.

There's a steryotype for every walk of life and for every ethnicity. Just because you can't handle it is a personal problem you have.

I like all that weeaboo shit, video games, and Warhammer 40k and nobody cares. If people make fun of you for going around calling yourself a geek girl it's probably because they think you're being a twat about it.

A fake geek: someone who labels their self cute or hot and brags about being a geek.

A real geek: someone who is who they are and follows their geek group because of it.

Real geeks do not attack girls on the authenticity of their geek card. Real geeks confide in girls about what they have to do to complete their Pokedex. They do not care for labels and some probably don't even realize they're a geek.







In short, you're all fakes.

I don't like using the term geek in the first place since everyone seems to have their own opinion of exactly what it means.
Just try to match up individual interests with a guy. Don't say "hey I'm a geek too."

Hot girls with shirts that say "IM A GEEK" are not geeks. They are desperate for attention and wasting 3-d glasses by taking out the lenses.
Also, those traits you listed aren't very geeky.
