if someone calls me a nerd, I'll make sure to stabbarattata. Uncalled for and I need to release a lot of pent-up aggression.

I don't mind being thought of as a nerd. I mind more if people make me feel bad for being girly.

No cause being a nerd isnt a bad thing. If you called me that when I was like 15, I'd be offended but now I really don't care.

I don't think I EVER thought of the word 'nerd' as an insult, but then again, I grew up home schooled.

I don't get why smart people would be disliked, either, but I won't look at any comments on this post anyways. Since i'm so sensitive (especially about other girly girls).

I just felt like speaking my mind a bit here, though, anyways~ :)


(so, yeah, please don't quote this post. i don't want to see any posts in this thread in my notifications. they could cause me meltdowns. i just wanted to speak up about how i felt)

So I was walking my dog with one more leg today and someone called me a nerd with a frankenstein complex so I guess it is a compliment after all.

    Depends on the intent with which they say it, really. Tone, body language, context...all these things will determine whether it is offensive or not. Although as far as insults go it'd be pretty pitiful and not particularly imaginative so it's unlikely I'd be offended.

    I've stopped caring about what people call me ages ago. Nerd is something I happily embrace.

        I write Pokemon fanfiction, so I'm a pretty big nerd here. = P

        Even if someone use "nerd" as an insult, I would still go, "thank you for the compliment!" haha.

          But I wear those T-shirts of mine to find others of my kind.

          For someone to care enough to call me out, positively or negatively, I'd call they're just as big of a nerd.
