"Good Morning Britain viewers have been left fuming over a debate about classifying ‘nerd’ and ‘geek’ as a hate crime. Things got heated on today’s instalment of the breakfast show as Dr Sonja Falck explained people with high IQs are a minority group and are subject to ridicule. During the debate, the psychotherapist suggested terms such as ‘geek’ and ‘nerd’ should be termed a hate crime, similar to racism and homophobia. ‘I think people find it startling because very high IQ people are a minority group in society who are very much ignored, they’re not understood and largely neglected,’ she told Ben Shephard and Ranvir Singh. ‘It’s the case that very high IQ people are bullied at school for example, they’re a target for being bullied quite viciously. ‘Things are changing, words do evolve after time, but there are many words like brainiac, egghead, nerd, that mean socially awkward and contemptible.’"
