List of Amazing People 3/?
“Nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff. We don’t have to be like, ‘oh yeah that purse is okay,’ or, ‘yeah, I like that band’s early stuff’. Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it. When people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is ‘you like stuff.’ Which is just not a good insult at all. Like, ‘you are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness’.”
