** The popular web music video for LemonDemon's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbDV1afDSn0 "Geeks In Love"]] is a stellar example of the 'geekiness is an expression of individuality and helps you find what truly makes you happy' viewpoint. Good song too.

* Honestly, the hipster movement and much of 21st-century cultural trends can be seen as a mainstreaming of nerd/geek culture.

** This was, of course, taken word-for-word from an exchange with Nick Fury during [[ComicBook/UltimateMarvel the Ultimate Galactus]] storyline. (But it was much more badass because, among other things, he was saying it to ''[[Creator/SamuelLJackson Nick Fury]]'').

* Obnoxiously turned inside out on fourth season episode of ''Series/TheWestWing'', where a woman wearing a ''Franchise/StarTrek'' pin in the office tells Josh that she wears it because the Starfleet symbol is, to her, a symbol of honor and civic duty, and Josh should commend her for such pride in her job-- Josh quickly grinds what would be a nice little speech into the ground by basically saying "it's okay to like Star Trek, but do it in the privacy of your own home". [[WarpedAesop By explicitly comparing her display of a pin to a fetish]]. (Note that it's apprently fine to be a ''sports'' fan in the White House, as several of the leads have sports paraphernalia in their offices.) Way to go, Sorkin.

* Canadian electropo singer {{Lights}}. She's an avid gamer as well as a fan of comic books and other nerd culture, and it really shows in some of her music videos. It's also worth mentioning that her song "Lions!" was inspired by one of her favorite computer games, WorldOfWarcraft.

** Lisa usually follows this trope, though many episodes involve her giving in to peer pressure and trying to act "cool" or otherwise reinventing her social persona. They always end with an {{aesop}} about being yourself, and with Lisa regaining her geek pride.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episode "When It Rains", Peridot says that while she was uninvolved with the artificial fusion experiments, she seems really proud of the fact that she took the time to read ''hundreds'' of years worth of reports on it.

* In the WhateleyUniverse, at SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy, all the gadgeteers and devisers are this, but Generator (Jade Sinclair) fits this too. She sings anime theme songs in public. In Japanese. She invents shoulder angels. ''Working'' shoulder angels, which start a fad across campus. She is one of the founding members of Team Wondercute. She says she is building a working model of [[Franchise/LyricalNanoha Raising Heart]].
