You mean sports, and well shit everything else? I mean why pick on geeks, which was my exact point. A shit stain has more substance.
I think it's because this is one of the few mostly male sub-cultures that claims immunity/exception to criticisms of inherent sexism, because the "poor besotted nerds are really smart and meek and worldly and can see women for who they really are because the assholes always get the girl" and all that nonsense.
Except the nerds/geeks usually end up wanting some big-titted airhead over what they claim their ideal women is when they're off whining about how bad they have it. At least sports are in the open about their double-standards.
