Before I studied the art, a punch to me was just like a punch, a kick just like a kick. After I learned the art, a punch was no longer a punch, a kick no longer a kick. Now that I’ve understood the art, a punch is just like a punch, a kick just like a kick.

The science of government it is my duty to study, more than all other sciences; the arts of legislation and administration and negotiation ought to take the place of, indeed exclude, in a manner, all other arts. I must study politics and war, that our sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. Our sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history and naval architecture, navigation, commerce and agriculture in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry and porcelain.

Why are some smart girls offended when they see a smart guy dating a not-so-smart girl?

The world is in loss of so many potential sonnets!

Answer by Saniya Bhutta:

To correctly answer this question, you need to understand what women want.
And then, what “smart” women want.

The general perception is women respond better to words than men do, the same way men prefer visuals. A “smart*” woman would perhaps be moved by these lines more:

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm’d;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

compared to a ‘not-so-smart’ woman, who’d be equally happy with:

She’s nothing like a girl you’ve ever seen before
Nothing you can compare to your neighborhood hoe
I’m tryna find the words to describe this girl
Without being disrespectful
The way that booty movin’, I can’t take no more
Have to stop what I’m doin’ so I can pull up close
I’m tryna find the words to describe this girl
Without being disrespectful
Damn, girl
Damn, you’s a sexy bitch, a sexy bitch
Damn, you’s a sexy bitch, damn, girl

Coming back to the Rubik’s Cube you have on your hands, one that can only be solved using advanced vocabulary, all women want to be wooed. The flowers, the chocolates, the works. “Smart” women, may also want a coherent string of words. Or maybe a sonnet or two.

In order to get someone to write you sonnets, you need to find someone who *can* write sonnets. But if that sonnet writer is busy with someone who neither understands nor appreciates sonnets, a lot of sonnets will go unwritten.

Here’s a normal distribution chart for IQ scores
.


As you can see, “smarts” unfortunately account for 2.1% of the world population, and at a 50:50 (male to female) ratio - assuming world population of 6.9 billion people[1] - you’re left with 73.224 million males in the pool where IQs are above 2 standard deviations.[2]

Subtracting children (26%) and senior citizens (8%), you’re left with 47.609 million males, of whom only 7% have college degrees = 3.333 million.

So basically, what we have here, is a situation where there are only 3.33 million men out there who are smart, and educated. This does not exclude men already married or in relationships.

Then, limitations of religion, language and culture further shrink an already extremely small fishing pool.

You get where this is going, right?

Every time a smart guy somewhere hooks up with a “not-so-smart” girl, a kitten gets adopted by a “smart” girl.



But coming back to your original question about why smart girls are offended when smart guys date not-so-smart girls, it’s because these women are lamenting the world’s literary decline, and grieving over sonnets that are not being written.
