First of all, there's the nerd. Nerds tend to be studious, have few interests, and are socially obtuse. They grind away at their obsessions, often abstruse ones. Hot witches have no chance for having a nerd boyfriend, unless he's a band nerd, and would appreciate her differentness. Nerds may be more fashionable, by the way.
Then there's the geeks. Historically, a geek was a person in a carnival sideshow who entertained the public by biting the heads off of chickens or other intellectual pursuits. However, the meaning of the term has evolved into a person with unusual interests, and often highly skilled in something requiring a lot of knowledge. Computer geeks come to mind. Best Buy calls its computer service department the Geek Squad, and they ride around in cool VW Bugs or trucks with the Geek Squad logo.
Geeks are subcategorized into computer geeks, math geeks, sci-fi geeks, comic geeks, science geeks, history geeks, and other categories of convenience.
I would be happy to data a geek. They are often funny and interesting. They also tend to bestow imaginative presents.
But dorks are a special case.
Originally, a dork was a whale penis. Well, I guess whale thingies are impressive enough to require their own word. However, this word did devolve into a reference as to social ineptness. In short, dorks might tend to do embarassing things. And people around them receive guilt by association. Moreover, dorks are usually deliberate in their dorkitude.
Are nerddom, geekdom, and dorkdom male-only preserves?
Typically, the usual schemata for these three social types uses as its base a socially odd or misfit young male. We don't usually describe older men or women as nerds, viewing studiousness as acceptable behavior when chronological adults do it. However, sometimes girls are cast in the nerd role, as in a recent episode of The Middle on television. And this ginger girl was attractive enough to engage the interest of Axel, the quintessinal jock. Maybe nerddom is becoming acceptable for girls. After all, they can easily shed the part and reveal their latent sexiness simply by removing their glasses, according to television or movies.
There are female geeks; one subcategory of them are the gamer girls. Geek girls with highly prized skills are esteemed; and are great companions to engineers. A geek-geek romance is made in heaven.
Dorkdom is a male-only preserve. Anyway, what girl would aspire to be a dork? Some are born dorks; some achieve dorkiness; and some have dorkdom thrust upon them.
Only one further issue. Are females of these types, nerdesses and geekesses? I prefer geek goddesses!
