    Re: loser,dope, jerk,

    It depends on what social circles you move in.

    I recommend that students use none of the above in casual conversation for fear of giving offence.

    Unfortunately, they are not all general insults. A nerd is not necessarily a prick or a jerk. A weirdo is probably a freak and maybe a whack-job, but not necessarily an asshole, etc.
