Gamer Girls and Nerd Boys
We all agree that gamer girls are a somewhat rare, but not that rare species, that is not, like the media would like to suggest, visually not that appealing and just as brainless as their male stereotype-counterpart. Quite the contrary! Gamer girls, as rare as they may seem, are more beautiful and more literate than their reputation. What about the nerd boys? The hardcore gamers? The developers? Their stereotype is just as negatively connotated, if not worse.
My dear friend Esther talks about those stereotypes in her blog (which is a wonderful collection of MMO couples and how they’ve found each other) and brings up valid points why nerd boys are not that nerdy after all and why gamer girls (and girls in general) should pay more attention to the neighborhood nerds.
