hollywood has had a role in this as well. all those comic books and old nerd culture icons like transformers and spiderman that have recently been remade into big movies, while we see less action movies like lethal weapon and die hard where sissy nerds would get laughed off the screen.

That's partly true. If you put it on a screen, people will imitate it.

Seth Rogan, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, McLoving, these dudes got put in movies and suddenly being a fat, clumsy, awkward dork is popular. It doesn't hurt that most kids these days are insecure and socially intimidated, so rallying around dudes like these and making them "cool" gives them a way to turn the tables.

I had my first ''I'm getting old'' moment earlier today. I went to see Tron today and was shocked at the massive amount of hipsters roaming around the place. Just a few years ago this theater was full of fake thugs and now everyones wearing thick glasses and female jeans. I feel so detached and out of place with the whole hipster stuff.
