I wonder if he's not really ranting about women pretending to like the things he's into, but rather his personal insecurities and (presumably) lack of romantic success:

"...the REAL Nerds, who YOU secretly think are REALLY PATHETIC..."

"And also, if ANY of these guys that you hang on tried to talk to you out of that Con? You wouldnt give them the fucking time of day. Shut up you damned liar, no you would not. Lying, Liar Face"

Obviously many of us nerdy, introverted types grow up thinking 'girls don't dig us' but not all of us shed that image when we reach adulthood.




that's the eh, funny, thing about this headline.

It presumes women are not nerds. Just like

> Obviously many of us nerdy, introverted types grow up thinking 'girls don't dig us'

presumes heterosexual women and homosexual men are not 'nerds'. I realise that's not the intention of the sentence, but it's very easy to read it that way.

I'm a dragon-con goer. I've actually never thought that anyone not interested in what they were doing (and not getting paid for it) would be trying to fake their way in, be it an oddly dressed man or woman.

As regular street clothed people mainly interested in the video gaming track(s), my SO and I were probably thought to be the posures by many of the cos-players.
