Geek Chic: It Hurts to be Different

A Facebook friend posted this video. It speaks to geek culture and how, even though it’s become popular for “geek to be chic,” we can still feel alone in the mainstream crowd.

I have to agree with her about the X-Men comments. They’re some of my favorite comic book movies, not because they nailed the X-Men from the comics (they couldn’t be more off, in my opinion). I like the X-flicks because they’re about something that we go through every day. As much as I enjoy watching heroes fight off alien invasions, it doesn’t relate to my experience like being seen as a mutant does. (We’ve all felt that way…it’s not just me, right?)

That said, 3.5 being the best D&D…we’re going to have to agree to disagree. (*cough* 5e *cough*)

What about you? Do you feel alone in a crowd because of your geekiness?
