For my blog on defining and questioning aspects of "Geek Culture" I have decided to write an article on Geek entitlement and I need your help picking topics to cover and fleshing them out since I'm covering a huge topic here.
Here's what I have so far
When all else fails, you call Mousa the 14, that one ranting geek.
Geeks suck. We really do. I don't mean any particular subculture of us, we just do. Especially the internet dwellers which makes up about 98% percent of geekdom. But how can I can I count the many ways in which we suck? Well technically I can get most of it in one word: Entitlement.
Non-geeks who I hope are reading this too, you have to understand this:
TV shows and movies that glamorize us for being individualistic underdogs who get what they want for being generally nice people despite our interests and crippling social awkwardness lie.
Yes, it's true that a good portion of us are affable people, but when we're jerks, we're really
jerks, and part of it all comes from our sense of Entitlement. You've heard the phrase before "Geeks will inherit the World" and really can you blame that figure of speech? Especially when in this day and age, a Bachelor's degree isn't smart enough to guarantee you a job and almost everything requires a computer to operate? Nerds and Geeks own this world... in the background anyway, we're still working on that social awkwardness thing so that our reign is more prevalent. Anyhow, point is, we think we are going to
own everything, currently
own everything, or deserve
to own everything.
Now it's that last one I'm here to talk about. I'm here to cover exactly what is it we think we deserve and why we think we deserve it and why we're such huge jerks about it.
The categories will be split up into Women, Internet=Free, The Sportsmen, The Media, Individuality,
and I sort of stop there, so... help?
