The neckbeard meme has made myself deeply critical over my proclivities, funnily enough, of being deeply critical.
I hate that my greatest strength is so pitted.
I'm proud to be a neckbeard. Actuallly, usually when that part starts growing in, I shave it off, but still. I never got why it was something to be ashamed of. To me it's just a re-packaged form of "nerd or geek." People started deciding that "nerd" and "geek" was positive (usually if they happened to have a lot of money), so people couldn't use that as an insult, and started using "neckbeard" instead.
