disagree

of course not all people are the stereotype but that's the people, not the stereotype. the stereotype itself is a positive one.

 

and no most gamers do not take "geek" negatively.  they are proud of being tech geeks and apart of geek culture. only old people see geeks as a negative term. nerds and geeks are now what's cool.

 

you seem to be one of those people that like to turn everything into negativity.

I agree with Drake... stereotyping people, either positively or negatively, always has negative consequences for exactly the reasons which he's described.  Stereotypes only serve to dehumanize people, thereby replacing them with some sort of prototype which may or may not coincide with their actual attributes.  This is the very basis of prejudicial thinking.  I firmly believe that people should be judged upon who they actually are rather than prejudged upon whichever category, racial or otherwise, they might conveniently be placed.

I, like everybody else here and across the globe, whether they have access to sophisticated information technology or not, have spent twenty-four hours of every day of my existence in the real world.

That's not a generalisation; it's a fact.
