I saw some male poster being mean to a girl online and he went saying that she was probably a nerd picked on at school and thought that was funny. What is there to be laughing about that?
Even if that was true, there is no excuse for anyone to treat someone poorly.

I totally understand you. I see a lot of things like that on the internet too. It's horrible. I agree whole heartedly with you. I mean, I know that a lot of people think being a nerd or dork is a cool thing (I'm a geek, lmao, and I'm not ashamed about it), but it doesn't excuse guys, girls, ANYONE from making a comment like that, because it was meant as an insult and it could really hurt somebody.
Even though society has become more acceptable towards accepting "nerds and etc", there are still plenty of jerks who think it's not socially acceptable to be under that label. And people who laugh about the very idea of someone, anyone (No matter what label), getting picked on or bullied, are pathetic. Especially when thoughts or comments like that are online, because it's officially out there: everyone can see the hurtful comment/jab. Social media is like that.
We all know how comments like those can really hurt someone. It's stupid jabs at people under those certain labels that lead people to self harm (metally, physically, and spiritually). We can't do anything to really stop someone from saying crap like that, but hopefully someday we can all show how much behavior like that is discouraged. And that might help lessen the type of verbal abuse that happens.0
