This is a hypothetical question, I'm not trying to make a big deal about it but the irony struck me.
My friend's daughter is having "nerd day" at school next week. The kids are supposed to come to school dressed like nerds. Isn't that kind of bullying? Dressing up like smart "nerdy" kids? What about the kids that are constantly called nerds? Wouldn't they feel like everyone dressed up as "nerds" is insulting? I dunno. With all the anti-bullying things nowadays you'd think "nerd day" is a bit weird. Thoughts?

usually what is meant by "nerd day" isnt "dress up like kids in your class that you think are nerds". it was always the stereotypical nerd that everyone dressed up like...
some of the girls wore plaid skirts with knee socks and clunky shoes. modern day nerds dont follow that stereotype anymore. and as a self-described nerd, who always loved the nerd title, i never was offended by it.
