I mean, I frequent a website dedicated to an economic/political theory...so yes. Very much so.

'Nerd' is merely a social construct used to enforce a hierarchical social system.

But yeah, I'm a big ol' nerd if 25+ years of study of everything from music theory to epigenetics to alternative forms of economy counts?

What's a nerd?

ziq wrote

A nerd is a person seen as overly intellectual, obsessive, or lacking social skills (introvert). Such a person may spend inordinate amounts of time on unpopular, little known, or non-mainstream activities, which are generally either highly technical, abstract, or relating to topics of fiction or fantasy, to the exclusion of more mainstream activities.

Aren't we all nerds in the 2010s?

Somewhat. My obsessions end up placing me in a role of educator which I find tedious and ultimately distracting from my projects. I have yet to find a way to turn someone's interest in me and what I'm doing into ambition to help me. When I figure that out I'll let you know.
