Revenge of the Nerds & Sexual Degradation

Revenge of the Nerds is a light-hearted nerds-turned-heroes movie beloved by many underdogs of the 1980s. While it has many iconic and hilarious scenes, it has its issues: the cringe-worthy racial stereotypes present in so many movies of the decade, an unfair depiction of fraternity life, the fact that Anthony Edwards is supposed to be unattractive,…
