Why are you considered a nerd if you play WoW

General Discussion
Abs are the currency of the realm these days. Get abs and nobody can talk !@#$ about you. That's why I play a blood elf, nobody ever makes fun of us.

I'm still confused nerds call other nerds nerds like an insult. I'd say we're all equally nerdy. We just put our passions into different things.

Unfortunately being a nerd does not necessarily mean nicer. They can still be just as bullying as those that bully nerds. They establish hierarchies of nerd-dom so they can look down on other nerds. And god help anyone that fits the stereotype of someone that made fun of nerds (popular girl, jock, etc.) that suddenly finds themselves in a position of answering to or needing help from a nerd.
I don't know I lived in fear of telling anyone I played WoW since middle school, I'm a high school senior now and learned to literally not give a crap lol
It's called being a teenager. Actually, it's just called human behaviour.
Hah, I remember in High school I punched a kid in the face for trying to bully me about playing Runescape. It was pretty damn funny, he lost any sort of useless high school reputation he had after that.

SPOILER ALERT: you'll get older and get out of school and none of it will matter to anyone anymore.

ah i know what u mean. all the kids making fun of you for playing games like Runescape and WoW. Certain things are just looked down apon at school like Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh. there are certaintly people that play them. the best thing to do in my opinion is to not let anyone kno of your gaming habits if they are looked down upon and that bothers you . things like this are generally related to nerds and geeks whether or not they are nerdy at all. its just something that kids do. this generation is a very cruel one. (i have nothing against what was mentioned so no one come at me about them being examples).

Meh its not really about me getting made fun of which i did for about 2 days still i was searching for a !@#$ to give it just annoys me that other people bash on other people about being a NERRRRD if u play wow

But didn't you just bash somebody for being "popular" and having expensive pants?

Yeah i did cause they think they are better then everyone else and are complete !@#$%^-s the gamerz dont even say a word in the cafeteria and they get bashed on because they play a videogame

So these kids who you don't say a word to make it a point to go out of their way to come over to where you are in the cafeteria and say bad things about you because you play a video game?
A better question is why you care?
Yeah. I don't get it either. I think people associate it with being a anti-social and solo RPG game, when it can be just as social as X-box.
