Sh*t Nerds Say

Consider the Following

Game ReviewsE3 2012

I admit to not being a big fan of the “Sh*t Girls Say” videos, because for every line that makes me defensively go “yeah, I say that all the time, what?” there are three that confirm that the video has a very narrow definition of “girls.” You know, to one specific kind of personality type, in a specific kind of demographic group, and blah blah blah big words but basically it’s those kind of sweeping generalizations that ruin a joke for me.

Now, Sh*t Nerds Say might visually narrow itself to male nerds, but, as you might have guessed, I’m far more comfortable labeling myself as nerd or geek than as girl, and on top of that it leaves me feeling proud that I belong to a nerd community when I say these things.
