I find it kind of ... disjointed, I guess, that what I take as your point is that people pose as nerds to seem intelligent when your first, quoted sentence is in valley girl, a subset of humanity known for being vapid and shallow. I'm sorry if that doesn't make sense, I'm suffering from a sinus infection right now so I'm kinda loopy, but it seems like you're saying they do it to look smart, and they let us know with statuses like this. "Like, OH MY GAAAWWWD, I played CoD at my boyfriend's house, I am, like, SUCH a geek"renegade7 said:"Like, OH MY GAAAWWWD, I played CoD at my boyfriend's house, I am, like, SUCH a geek"
gets really old really quickly.
Women and men both lie about themselves in dating situations. Women may wear push-up bras to look like their breasts are more shapely, or make up to look like they have better skin. Men go to the gym and get a tan to make themselves look like...I don't know, like they just plowed the fields or something. Guess some girl somewhere is into that.
Anyway. "Geekiness" is often associated with intelligence...and more and more people are finding intelligence attractive. I think the idea is that by pretending to be a geek, you try to send a message of intelligence. Both genders find ways to do this, I think in women it's a little more popular because there are no male 'sexy nerds' in the movies or on TV.
Just one take on it.
I'm not saying your theory is flawed, I just find your ... presentation hard to wrap my mind around.
... ok, I'm shutting up now. >.>
