Well, I just read a really good, long post about this at Shakesville. There is a definite possibility you are right. But, I am being a little optimistic that "liking nerdy girls" means actually being nice to them and not othering them, as Liss described as here
. You never know. A girl can dream. ETA: And yeah, having some dude come in and save the day, with his female assistant, is problematic in itself.
The interwebs are rich with humor about this now, because of elevatorgate. (It's mentioned in Liss's post, and in the next link I am putting up, if you need background.)
I thought this
was a great article on the subject. I also think the song at the end is very funny, having been that girl. Well, maybe not so hot but definitely pulling the indie thing off - I love that word! Old school! But yes, the guys singing are definitely playing the objectifying / predatory role in the song. But, satirically and pathetically.
