Smart Girls Can’t Date: The Remix

My doves! Do you remember a couple of years ago when I wrote my blog on how intelligent women can’t seem to find a date because men are intimidated by them? This one here is the one I’m talking about. I cited several different sources to support my theory.

Well, Elite Daily’s Lauren Martin posted an article with the same thesis on July, here, and it’s been making the rounds on Facebook.

This is a real thing that happens to overtly intelligent women. It’s a real double standard in society that smart men are desirable while smart women are not. Women are told (me, I have been told) to “dumb it down” in order to get a date–and have him stick around.

To that I say fuck society. Fuck society right up the ass with a chainsaw.

I will not play dumb to appease a man, or other women, for that matter. I’m smart, and I like it. I may even like that it makes some people scared, because it’s an excellent way to separate the wheat from the chaff, both in the dating pool and the pool of friendship.

Ladies, please, never dumb down your intelligence. Society will not change if we bend, so be smart. Flaunt it if you’ve got it. You’re smart (yes, you right there) and you should love that about yourself. I love that about you.

Gents, do not fear us. We come in peace.
