Seriously. Growing up I wasn’t a normal girl, I’d play with cars and action men instead of Barbies and if anybody bought me a barbie i’d cut its hair off and give it tattoos.
Age 3 my brother introduced me to the Sega, obviously didn’t play very well back then but I loved it and I’ve been gaming ever since, before having my daughter gaming for 12 hours a day on days off work. I still own my Nintendo 64 and regularly set it up to play goldeneye and legend of zelda I have a little collection of all my old consoles and games I refuse to sell because i still play them!. I became interested in zombies from around 6 which fair enough was probably too young but as I got older zombies were my favourite thing ! If anybody wanted to watch a film I’d automatically say “zombie horror ?”. Addicted ! When I was 4 for Halloween I dressed up as batman. Age six I was poison ivy ! Batman was a massive part of my childhood and still is today, he is easily my favourite hero and probably always will be. Star wars and lord of the rings were just what I loved growing up in my childhood and teenage years. I remember my brother and I used to come home from school to watch star trek voyager and buffy the vampire slayer and it became routine , they were the highlight of our days !
My point is, that’s who I am. I got BULLIED immensely for all of this because I wasn’t a ” normal ” girl. I was a “freak” because I wasn’t interested in polishing my nails and listening to RnB having pillow fights and girly sleepovers. I preffered to stay home playing whatever game I was obsessed with at the time and watching my films and programmes with my brother.
So.. Why is it suddenly “cool” to be a geek, as they call it ? Its not geeky to like these things.. But that’s what people are saying !
Everywhere I go there’s people (mainly girls) pretending to love all of said things because it makes them cool and people will like them more ! You can ask any of these people a question on these subjects and most would not be able to answer it. All the other millions of people out there that are like me and genuinely like gaming/zombies/lord of the rings etc, must also get peed off by this ?! After years of torments and abuse for being this way and now everyone wants to be this way… Irritating as hell!
That’s my little rant done with. But please drop us a comment if you agree/disagree !
