I like that you find the word ‘geek' offensive.
Yeah, it is, it's circus freaks, degrading circus freaks who eat chicken heads. I came from the opposite, when people would call someone a geek, and I was like, "What's the difference between someone who collects comics and someone who collects Britney Spears records or someone who collects football programs? You wouldn't call those people geeks, so why are you calling these people geeks?" Not all of us who love comics collect them, there are other hobbies. They're no different from most people who consume things and put them in the corner or put them in a drawer, that's what I was trying to say. Anyone who's into anything could be called a geek, but they don't call them a geek. It's just easier to use than any other word.
