Since when are geeks looked down upon in society, I think it's nerds you're on about.
Psh, but aren't nerds the smart geeks and thus geeks are just dumb not-so-nerds?

No, its because I look like a geek, stay up all night, have never been clubbing, never had a boyfriend (apart from 1 lasting a week), get rubbish grades, talk like a geek, can't get a job and am 19 :p:
Shes cool though for a mum I mean people my age (eg my cousin) always prefere to talk to her than me cause shes cooler. If I call her though she says im bitter and twisted and have no life (kinda true)
The situation is hard to understand but she is cool for a mum
none of those things makes you a geek!
i know loads of ppl my age who havent been clubbing, havent had boyfriends, havent got jobs dont worry about it!

Maybe she was just tormenting you? Like a big ol' kid

And I have a bi-atch for a mom too (it's like a disease) violent towards me as a kid and now we barely speak hurrah for the maternal love.

I would seriously fall out with my mum if she called me that :| I've been called some awful things in my time by my parents but if they ever said that i doubt i would talk to them.

Nothing wrong with being a geek. You seem to forget that someday we will rule the world

*evil geeky laugh*

Oh crap, I got another nosebleed.

"A geek is a person who is fascinated, perhaps obsessively, by obscure or very specific areas of knowledge and imagination. Geek may not always have the same meaning as the term nerd"

ok well to be honest, parents do not understant the kids of today, things have changed since they were our age, and to be called a geek really isn't that bad, in some ways she is comlimenting you by saying you are brainy, but to be honest don't take it to hear, sometimes parents say stupid things they don't mean and they regret.... but the problem with parents is very few will appologise to their children when they are wrong, the do not back down... well thats the case wiht mine anyway..... don't take it as an offense i am sure your mum didn't mean it to sound nasty.
