I am a geek. Really. I fit the stereotype of a geek or nerd (they're two different things), if anything I'm the model. In fact I'm even typing this while reclining with my eyes closed. And I think the one thing that really finishes off this stereotype is the fact that I do have a disability.
I feel like whenever I watch television and they are trying to portray a group of nerds, at least one has a bunch of invisible and ridiculous sounding disabilities or illnesses. I know in my nerdy group of friends, I am that kid. I take pride in it, of course, because I'm only being myself.
I hate that portrayal of the nerdy kid with a disability: They make them seem like they're faking, that they're not tough and such. It's not unlike in real life, where the world will pick on you for being a wimp or a hypochondriac. Then again, the world isn't kind to many anyway.
