The problem with some of the great t-shirts floating around the internet is that they relate to internet memes and jokes that absolutely no one in my real life will get, or to TV shows that it's generally not considered normal for someone my age to watch. So yeh, there would never be a point where I'd be able or willing to wear them in public, which sucks, because they are awesome.

I wear nerdy/obscure Tshirts all the time, currently I have 2 portal ones, a World of Warcraft one, and a Paul and Storm shirt.
(The people who don't get it can deal, and the people who do get it are awesome) but I might be able to get a way with it a bit more because of my gender.

@ilusien - Yeh, girl nerds can get away with having nearly anything on their t-shirts. It's funny, the geek stereotype is typically male, but I know more female geeks than I do males. Hmm...

Not sure if incorrect stereotype, or lucky me...

@Wade - THOSE T-SHIRTS ARE AWESOME! :D I mean, I disagree with most of their messages on principle, but still! Although I would love that "talk nerdy to me" shirt...

Since when was your evil clone social pressure?
Tim 4th Sep 2011, 10:10 PM edit delete reply
It's more just thinking about the social pressure from school people and IRL people.

Nega Tim was drawing attention to the fact that there'd be almost no situation where I wouldn't at some point be judged and/or pull attention in a way that I don't want to with some of the shirts.
