Is being a nerd that bad?
Being a nerd (being overly smart for one) has been given a bad name for a long time now and it is still going on. Nobody wants to be nerd as they show on the popular media, being smart with glasses and clumsy and not being able to fit in with the crowd. They have been portrayed as not being good looking and always being obsessed about something that other people would find unpleasant or unappealing. Why can't a nerd be beautiful and what is wrong with wearing glasses that most of the nerds are made to look like it? And also the amount of bullying that these poor nerds endure at the hands of other people is appalling and nobody seems to care about it. Bullying is not just physical but mental too and when it is time to come to make the complicated decisions these same folks have no choice but to turn to nerds for help. It is way beyond time right now to change the image of the nerds because they are actually the ones running this world. You can have all the strength in the world but you cannot compete with the smartness of a person no matter how weak he/she is. And you don’t need to show the nerds as being not beautiful because beauty and brains can also go together. Nerds have more to contribute to this world then other people because we need the nerds to create smart things and they should be shown in a positive light. Not all nerds need to be on the fringes of society and it is amazing that how they have been portrayed by the media industry the same for all these years. All the nerds are in fact studying in the top level universities and colleges and this should be enough to show the power of the brain over strength.
