A little girl completely changed the mood of the room when she asked Wil Wheaton if he was ever called a nerd. It struck a chord with the entire audience. Usually someone might give a quick answer saying cliche’s and moving on to the next question. Wil did the opposite. He took the time to go into detail showing both sides of the nerd label. Often times it’s simple persecution for liking different things. Even more than just being socially awkward, sometimes the pressures being put on being just like everyone else causes the label to be applied and used in a disrespectful manner. It’s a really powerful message that anyone who was ever called a nerd can relate to.
Share this because there are millions of people that need to hear this message.
