Be a nerd. Be happy that you’re a nerd.
If you are passionate and enjoy specific things like video games or comics or movies, and you respect other people’s opinions… then you are a nerd.
Don’t be a gamer. Don’t be proud to be a gamer.
Gamers are a terrible breed of haters who will shit on everything they hate extensively because they have nothing better to do. They will demonize the people who enjoy the things they dont like, even if they’ve never even experienced them before.
The only thing important is their own opinion that they peddle as facts, and whatever it is they love is better than what you love.
No matter who you are, to them you are a “casual”; this generation’s “n00b”.
