bluelinedoughty replied to your post: I know I’m not supposed to shame any nerd girls,…
good lord I think I lost a few IQ points reading her half of the conversation…
She’s also desperately trying to start up a DnD group here because of a boy and she loves to talk about her “epic wizard” on Skyrim, which she calls Scrim. She can also ~headshot you before you even see her on on Black Ops, and she’s Prestiged 50 times. The fun part is when you try to invite her to play, her internet is mysteriously down…
I know I’m not supposed to shame any nerd girls, but I know for a fact 100% that this girl is ONLY doing it for attention and so boys will like her…and not for any interest in the ~nerdiness she claims to have.
“[Boy 1] wants me to go see Iron Man with him tonight, but I don’t see the point of staying out late to go see some stupid movie. I don’t even remember which one was Iron Man anyway.”
“He was the one in the iron suit,” I say, silently wishing that I was going to the midnight release. “Robert Downey, Jr.”
“Whatever, he’s cute and he likes superheroes, so if going and seeing iron man 2 with him will get him to like me, then fine.”
“It’s Iron Man 3, actually.”
“Amber, I don’t care, superhero movies are dumb. Oh, I need you to go to Hastings with me tomorrow.”
“Why?” I ask.
“There a cute boy in my class who works there who likes the walking dead and I told him I read the comics and he’s really impressed, so I need to go buy the latest edition if he’s there.”
“The last issue came out like a month ago, just wait until next Wednesday when the new one comes out.”
“Ugh, you are killing me. I need him to think I’m cool as soon as possible because things with [boy 1] are not going to work out if he keeps wanting to waste my time with movies.”
“Are you going to need me to tell you the difference in the comics and the tv show?”
“No, why would I, [boy 1] makes me watch the tv show, I’m pretty sure if I just talk about that, he’ll know I read the comics.”
“Right, well good luck with that. I’m sure he’ll be stoked to hear all about how much more of a badass Darryl is in the comics.”
“Oh, he totally is. It’s embarrassing how much they downplay him in the TV show.”
I cannot take much more of her, I cannot.
Kurt, you are not allowed to crush on other people.
LIKE tswift has two songs that ~slut shame~ and i mean it isn’t right but i mean i feel like a LOT of singers do it??????? it’s not really a fair argument. i mean shit, i think we ALL slut shame from time to time, even if it’s not intentional.
Like, I don’t think slut-shaming should be condoned in any way, but at the same time, it’s like… they’re going to keep doing it. Everyone is. Nicki Minaj has a song that’s pretty much nothing but “you a stupid ho” over and over again. The best thing we can do is just be like, “allright, I like this song, but if I ever have children, I need to know to teach them why this particular line of thinking is wrong.” Because we’re not going to escape it. We need to just educate. My whole thing was that there’s the whole group of people who dislike Taylor for whatever reason, blame it on slut-shaming, and then jam the fuck out of other chicks who do it like it’s okay when they do.
My favorite part of everything is that all these people are talking shit on Taylor Swift for slut-shaming (which she totally does, don’t get me wrong) but a lot of these same people were the ones who just LOVED Paramore’s “Misery Business” and couldn’t go 3 days without tweeting “once a whore, you’re nothing more.”
I mean, really. Yes, Taylor needs to stop acting like a 16 year old, but Hayley Williams was everyone’s queen up until the point she got naked on twitter and it came out that she’d been lying about the “band” existing, and she did the exact same thing. Let’s be a little more consistent with our hate, shall we?
when I close my eyes, all I can hear are robot noises.
