twelve year olds are pretty lame, people stop acting like idiots when you get older (for the most part) and that stereotype is largely non existent at this point as far as I can tell, sure theres overweight comic fans who live with their parents, there's also overweight sports fans who live with their parents, that stereotype no longer has any power over fans of comic books because we've reached a point of self acceptance and the world largely accepts us for who we are, the main thing is to be yourself and not care what other people think, unless it involves big bang theory, I hate that show

Yeah and I agree about BBT. And I won't take "twelve year olds are pretty lame" as an insult lol.
@Cameron @Chaos: I feel the same way on both accounts. I watched damn near a whole season of BBT and didn't find it funny. Sadly, when I go to the lcs, I rarely see any kids or women. Most of the men I see there are middle aged and a good portion of the are married, long-time readers. Then again, this is during the early afternoon on Wednesday when kids are in school and most people are working.
My pull list
Vocatus atque non vocatus deus aderit.
People who read comics are, generally, nerds. I am a closeted nerd, I don't share my interest in comics with many people, but look at the subjects of comic books, they are genrally sci-fi or fantasy based. both of which are, generally, nerdy subjects, with exceptions being things like game of thrones or walking dead. I think what makes people nerdy about comics is that it takes more than passing interest in those things in order to read comics. It takes a level of dedication that many people don't have. Ultimately is comes down to what Chaos said, who gives a Fug what other people think...well i do, which is why I keep that shib to myself, but I am vain.
