When you say that you are a dork, doesn’t that diminishes your dorkness? Dorks don’t admit to being dorks.
Or can you safely call yourself a dork and still be one?

There are different levels to the dork culture. Those that are self-admitting dorks aren’t dorks of the highest degree. Certainly many factors are involved in grading one’s dorkiness. Self-recognition certainly lowers the status level.
I see four levels of dorkness: 4) Bragging dork The lowest is when you say you are a dork, but aren’t really. Maybe you are a little. Showing some tendencies. But wanting to declare you are a dork just to look cool. 3) Afraid of being a dork Normal dorkness, but afraid to admit it. Just being a dork. And not thinking about it. 2) Dork acceptance When you are so dorky, you just accept it. And can agree that you are one. Note, it’s not like #4 where you are declaring you are a dork. This is acceptance of being one. 1) Unaware dork You are such a high echelon of dorkness, you so closed off from the real world perceptions and fashions, that you aren’t even aware of it.
“But wanting to declare you are a dork just to look cool.” Isn’t that an oxymoron? A non-dork saying you’re a dork to be “cool”? UNLESS this person is actually a Level 2, 3 or 4 dork but wants to lessen the appearance of his or her dorkiness by saying “oh yeah, I’m such a dork.”

A co-worker called me a dork today when I launched into a long explanation of exactly why The Rutles is so funny. Winona, Stage 2 Dork
