Geek Pride Day: Know what it means to be a geek and how to draw a visual symbol of a geek
Today, the Geek Pride Day, May 25, is being observed across the globe and more so on the internet and social media platforms to show respects towards geeks and nerds and promote geek culture. The observance had originated in Spain in 2006 and now has spread around the globe.

Earlier, geeks were laughed at for their lack of social aptness but now they are considered to be a part of human diversity with high intra-personal intelligence. They too feel pride of being geeks and they are being known even by another respectable term ‘nerds’.

Some of the traits of a geek are: introvert, over studious, single-minded, expert in a technical field, lacking social skills, uncaring for personal get-up, having sharp memory, feel awkward with extroverts and cocky people, overly intellectual, self-absorbed, shy, shabbily dressed.  You can have academic geeks, computer geeks, film geeks, gadget geeks, cultural geeks, music geeks, technology geeks and many more.

About geeks, it is said that they pursue some skill, technology or any other subculture passionately and live for that alone. They not only learn deeply about their passion but master the related skills and hone them with continuously using and plasticising.

The visual code of a geek is face with thick frame glasses, now even called geeky eor nerdy glasses. To show their social in-aptness they are shown with two bunny teeth.

These days, teachers are supposed to learn how to draw the visual symbol of a geek in four successive drawing steps as shown in the inset picture.
