This is about nerd-dom as a whole.
We, as nerds, can be down right monstrous at times. It's despicable and disgusting how we treat those who have differing opinions than ours, or how we treat cosplayers (especially the attractive women in skimpy and revealing outfits), or a whole list of things that I cannot get into because it's so large.
It needs to stop.
As nerds (or furries, or bronies, or whatever else you label yourself as), we've been on the receiving end of all kinds of torment and abuse, yet, when someone needs a place to be accepted, or when we see those attractive cosplayers, or we see an opinion that we disagree with, or whatever other thing we see/hear about, we turn that abuse towards the thing we dislike. We hound and leer at cosplayers for this, that, and the other thing. We torment people who are genuinely curious about something nerdy.
Again, it needs to stop.
I can't say that I'm not guilty of some of the things I'm trying to shed light on. I'm only human, and I've made mistakes. I've learned from them as well. It's time nerds everywhere did the same.
It's time PEOPLE everywhere learned from their mistakes.
