A Love Letter To: Nerd Girls

June 1, 2011

To a lot of guys, nerdy girls are the holy grail. I know growing up my friends always called me a “unicorn” because to them I was such a rarity; an attractive girl with a brain and obscure, geeky interests. I obviously didn’t think anything of it because I was just being myself. I didn’t understand the reverie. Now it seems that lately, with the progress of video games and the prevalence of comic book movies, being into “nerdy” things is more allowable and mainstream, and with this I have noticed an influx of “faux-nerdy” girls. Girls who want to impress guys by pretending to be nerdy, because they played Tetris once on a road-trip, or tried to play Halo once with their brother, but don’t know the difference between Ps3 or Xbox. I don’t care if you think Peter Parker is “dreamy”, bitch, I saw him first – you know, when I was saving up my lunch money to buy comic books as a kid, not because my boyfriend took me to see Spiderman 3.

Whether you’re a Dungeon Master, a Marvel Girl, a Computer Engineer or the best Warlock in your guild, being a true-blue Nerd Girl will always have its appeal within society – and you will always be a unicorn within the Geek sub-culture, and that to me is just a wonderful thing. I put together a little compilation of song tributes to our kind.

While these girls voices pierce my ears, and their over-acting makes me want to stab my eyes with my light-saber chopsticks, Seth Green’s rap at the end makes it totally worth it.

“Farscape
Sailor Moon
Hogwarts boys all make them swoon
Aragorn, Legolas
These are the boys they love the best
I mean they’re good to go
Love Scifi, yo’
Marvel
DC
Vertigo
The girls are sweet
They can’t be beat”

This little number is from one of my absolute favorite shows, “The Guild”, with one of my favorite geek icons, Felicia Day. Definitely legit, and definitely a babe.

“Hang with me in my MMO
So many places we can go
I’m better than a real world quest
You’ll touch my plus five to dexterity vest.”

Oh, I think if you’re familiar with nerd related music at all, you know who MC Chris is. He’s classic. While I love the song, I don’t love the video so much – but I cant say I didn’t resemble the lead girl a little bit when I was much younger. Ah, memories.

“There’s a special kind of girl that goes to my shows
And I don’t mean the groupie hos
All along the front row
She’s more like a wallflower
Like the one that Stryker sniped
I’m like elixir when I’m with her
‘Cause I think I like her type.”

This song is by Chester French. I love a lot of the music he does, so you should probably get to know him. He is a Nerd Girls biggest fan – hands down.

“Most guys don’t enlighten me
But I’m intrigued by you
I’m your nerd girl writing sci-fi
But now I’m riding you
You’re my nerd girl
An extraordinary mind
Brain is of a kind so unknown.”

Well, on that note, I’ll be in Azeroth if you need me.
