Top 10 Common Misconceptions About Nerdy Girls

Do you remember that scene in Mean Girls? Where Janice was describing the different lunch tables to Cady? You know, the jocks, the Asians, the burnouts, the art freaks, and the plastics? Ah yes, it’s kind of like Harry Potter. Depending on how weird you are, how cool you are, or what you like, you’re sorted into one of these groups. Unless you wear camo to school, then it doesn’t matter how you act because no matter what, you sit with the other kids wearing camo by the fake plants school cafeterias have. Not like you needed to blend in with your surroundings anyway, it’s not like anyone was going to invade on your territory.

Then there are those people that bring Yu-Gi-Oh decks to school. Do you know the kids I’m talking about? You know, the kids who sound like Stacey from Zoey 101, with the lisp. Pushing up their wire-framed glasses, and sitting in the far corner of the cafeteria. What does that make you think of?

The nerds.

In any high school movie, there’s always the nerdy kid who doesn’t talk to girls and who's nose deep in a book. Being super content with this existing stereotype, it caught me off guard to learn nerdy girls are described in the exact opposite way as of late. Not only that, but to see that there are articles and popular posts actually praising the idea of a nerdy girl. Are we still talking about big glasses with headgear and plaid skirts? I guess this isn’t the 1980s anymore, huh?

Who is starting these lies that nerdy girls are girls that majestically get ready in five minutes instead of two hours?! Don’t ruin this for us, we don’t want to have to live up to this just because we play video games or because we like super hero movies. Most will still like their mascara.

Today we examine the man, as he gallivants about with other men, equally as sweaty, as they yell about Magic the Gathering. Intriguing, yes, he just summoned his rarest card- but what is this?! All eyes turn to the door at once, and those who don’t hide behind their cards, intimidated by the site. Did a female just wander into the shop? Is she lost? No, no I’ve heard of her kind before. They call them:

Nerdy Girls.

Dang people, is it the pheromones you smell? Or my perfume? Probably my perfume, because none of you know what cologne is. I know it’s probably a very foreign smell to you all. I’m sorry, I’m sorry. That was mean, I’ll behave.

1 They're Cool With The Labels


Alright, so the point of all of this is, doesn’t every girl have a bit of nerd in them? Doesn’t every guy? We’re all human here, it shouldn’t be that far of a stretch that we all have different interests. After this, I still don’t think I have a solid grip on what a nerdy girl would even be exactly. Find a girl you like being around who is cool and treats you well. If she plays the same games as you and likes the same movies, you’ve unlocked a hidden door, but don’t hit her with the “you never let me have time with my guys” two months later because she games with you.

And if some of you are reading this and thinking "At least my 2D girlfriend and I don’t have to worry about such nonsense," you’re on the right path, friend.

No I’m kidding. GG easy, nerd.
