Is there a female equivalent for "manchild"? "Womanchild" just doesn't have the same ring to it and I've found myself searching for the right word a couple times while describing women that are still obsessed with Disney and Hello Kitty well into adulthood.

"A nightmare." That may just be my personal experience. Also, that isn't gender specific.

You could call them girls rather than women. Is that too much? There's not really any "haha he said legbeard" element to take the edge off. You be the judge.

That they are, but "nightmare" is a pretty broad term. I guess I'm not really looking for something gender specific, but it would be nice if there was a blanket shorthand term for a person who has failed to develop socially beyond their childhood/teenage years.

The person who inspired this conversation is someone I used to be in a board game group with that I have mostly ignored in my Facebook feed for years. She recently moved to southern California and bought an annual passport for Disneyland. Now I see things like this on a regular basis:

As a WDW geek, I don't understand why someone would do this.  Wouldn't you get bored?  There's like, nothing to do there.
Gosh, I really love Disney World.

I usually just go with "lokiwives". Female nerdassery tends to take somewhat different forms from male nerdassery in my experience.

Update on Pear Dude: Today he had his coat open and I saw that he was also wearing a red turtleneck with mustard colored pants. Pear was mostly eaten by the time he got off.

One of my go-to movies for background noise when I work is the Dawn of the Dead remake. I'm not really sure why that is. It's not that it's my favorite movie, or that it even does anything particularly great... well other than the effects, which doesn't account for much if I'm not looking at it. Maybe it's the lack of hope in the story that makes it useful for this purpose. It's hard to say.

That's actually pretty spot on, all he needs is a neat little mustache and beard.

I live a quick drive from disneyland and this kind of thing is WAY too common here to hold it against any particular person. A good deal of men also do this, or at least invest a lot of time and money in visiting disney & other parks several times a year. At least once a year several senior male employees at my workplace take a day off to go to universal

In short: I have seen worse.

I looked up this Dendi fellow from Zekka's storygame, found out he was a real guy and is "well known for his solo mid skills," and sat back in my chair and was... just really confused.
He's also really normiecute for a guy who spends a lot of time playing video games.  Also PewDiePie is, like, hot, if you're into surfer bros, which is really unacceptable for some asshole who makes millions of dollars by being on the internet.

Today I went to McDonald's for the first time in a long while, and I asked for a medium portion of fries, and got a confused cashier. She explained, the sizes you can get are 'normal', 'large' and 'huge', creating a weird dilemma, where the medium size is actually large and what would be a medium sized portion is the smallest one you can get.

For some reason I've been thinking about this for too long
