I think Meryn Cadell said it best:

"I like a good work atmosphere where the boss says whatever he wants
And the rest of us just listen
I'm a very fast learner and I promise that if you give me this job
I'll be the perfect subhuman and never let my contempt shine
In my worshipping eyes..."

If we take "knowledge of astronomy or dinosaurs" as a proxy for "intelligence," even 130 years later there are quite a few men who are frightened of (or at least threatened by) smart women.

So, not cooties, then?

It was one of the standard jabs at women's education.

"You're taking Intermediate Latin?  Great!  If your husband can cook, you'll be all set."

How can I objectify women if they insist on having their own opinions and letting me know? I am supposed to be the hero of this story and I can't do that with someone constantly showing me up.

Which I find weird. Being turned off by smart women is basically saying you want to have stupid children.

That second part sounds like he's afraid of smart women because he could fall in love with them too quickly. "Off the precipice," as he says.

Fam, you wrote one sentence that took up half a page. It's clear you don't have a good copyeditor to fear, JFC.

How can anyone be threatened by Snarky Longstocking?  She's a teenage scold with an acute presence of antediluvian perspective and admitted hysteria issues.

Is that Sebring, FL or Sebring, OH?  I'm guessing it could go either way.

It still holds today, more or less.  A-hole guys who write trash like this are scared of a woman who looks like she will call them out on their A-hole-ishness and also women who are smarter than they are.
