Nerd culture is all about being a part of a community, and the best way to do that is by embracing your inner nerd. Nerds have gotten a bad rap. They're often portrayed wearing mismatched clothes, speaking in incoherent jargon, and being a nuisance. But that's not what being a nerd is actually about. Anyone who identifies as a "nerd" is simply marking themselves as passionate, loyal, and connected to something bigger than themselves.
