When I write, sometimes I like background noise. That usually means putting the TV on a somewhat mindless TV show. Today I left it on VH1’s “Undateable,” a show that offers mostly-helpful pointers to guys by telling them what not to do. The guests on the show carefully advises men to avoid dating dangers like ‘double denim.’ Then there was the stereotype: Guys at conventions who like Star Trek, Star Wars, or even Avatar do not get the ladies.

Clearly the guests on the show have not been to a convention. In some circles (such as cosplay or some LARPs), the woman to man ratio makes the male a rare commodity, also known as more desirable. All those nerd guys sitting in front of computers wondering about where to find a hot geek chick really just need to get up off their behinds and head to a LARP.

Sure, conventions have fat guys in first season “Star Trek: The Next Generation” costumes thinking they’re hot and/or Commander Riker. The stereotype exists…but just as it is with other groups, the stereotype in the geek community often comes from the vocal minority. This is the same reason some people give for hating Muslims, Christians, or Jews. Religious hate is bad enough…do we really need to make this kind of hate mainstream?

There are certainly ugly geek males and females…but there are some pretty decent looking ones, too. If you only knew about the high percentage of “Dungeons & Dragons” players in the military or at prestigious institutions like MIT and Harvard, you’d be surprised. Geeks have inherited the earth in the age of technology, and some of them are pretty damn good looking.

So simmer down, VH1. I hope Bill Gates buys you out!
