Nerd Girl of the Month – Charlotte Simmons
Since we have Charlotte Doyle for Serious Badass of the Month, I decided to go with another Charlotte for Nerd Girl of the Month.
Simmons is a bit older than most of our “nerd girls” but whatever, I make the rules. Simmons was never considered as Serious Badass of the Month because I wanted to strangle her during most of the plot. She’s a big dork, she’s poor, she doesn’t know how to kiss, she doesn’t know how to dress, she doesn’t know how to socialize, she doesn’t know how to hold her booze, she is so annoying. However, she’s relatable. And a nerd. And then she gets a basketball boyfriend and finds happiness. Oh wow, I’m so proud of her. She was saved because of a man. Maybe I should change the title to Anti-Feminism Character of the Month?
