A shunnie is one who is shunned by society for their choices in entertainment, mostly film and television. The group "Trekkie", meaning a fan of the film and television series Star Trek, is a subgroup and where the term got it's name. The term shunnie is meant to be used for a wider range of instances and situations.
Ever since i started watching Stargate and other sci-fi shows I've been considered a shunnie. A friend of mine is worse off. He was proclaimed a shunnie for simply watching a single Star Wars movie.
