Geek chic, WHY?!
I really want to know who was the asshole who started this trend. I want to know who was the first idiot to ever say “you know what I need? Some big framed glasses with no lenses. And maybe a cute little bow tie… that would totally kill it”.
Let me tell you this: if I walked out of my house with my pretty blazer and my cute ankle boots and a cervical collar, I would look stupid, right? If I was walking down the street with a pair of crutches and high heels, I would look really really stupid, right?
So, why is that different from wearing glasses you don’t actually need?!?!
Ugh… stupid bloggers, wearing stupid glasses, looking like fucking rapists… I think that short-sighted people all over the world should be mad at those who wear glasses just to look “cool”.
The only thing that I hate more than seeing people attempting to do the “geek chic look”, is seeing people attempting to do it now. Come on! This stupid trend started like in 2008… shit, this should have died 2 months after it started… I blame hipsters all around the world for not letting it go away.
A long ago Gala Darling blogged about this geek-chic trend, this is what she had to say:
You can’t do geek chic if you’re not wearing a pair of glasses! I’m sorry, but it’s true. You don’t actually need to be short- or long-sighted however, which is good news.
… It’s easy to wear a t-shirt that says ‘Nintendo’, but it’s much cooler to wear something that only die-hard fans will recognise.”
HAHAHA Oh my god… Look: wearing glasses that you don’t need is like drinking medicine when you’re not sick. And what’s the deal with telling people to wear stuff that only die-hard fans will recognize?? How’s this cool? It’s totally stupid! How fucking wannabe can you be?
This is the reason I never read this Gala Darling person’s blog… I have the strong feeling that she’s absolutely stupid. Judging by this entry, I think I’m right.
By the way: Jane looks like a kid with Down Syndrome in that picture. There, I said it.
