why do gals act dumb?

For the information of the supposedly not so dumb boys, we act dumb for our own convenience. Firstly it doesn’t matter to us if you think we are dumb cos as long as we know the truth, there is no necessity of proving it. Secondly, acting dumb makes things easier. We can get away from the worst of situations unscathed. When I had bad luck with my car, I remember how innocent I acted. I actually told the constable that I didn't know driving , I had no interest either and my dad was forcing me to learn it. Also we can pretend ignorance and get our work done by you boys. Like for instance at school I used to pretend to not know how to write silly C++ programs and there was this poor guy who used to help me out every time [help implying entire coding]. I'm sure he thought I was dumb and never complained, but as long as I get my work done, why would I care what he thought? We also pretend to be uneducated about sex[at least lot of girls do]. It saves us from silly queries and uncompromising situations. Feigned unknowingness also somewhat makes us appear sophisticated. Thirdly when we act dumb, it makes you feel safer being with us. An intelligent and independent girl can make you feel very insecure. So we behave like the diffident ones in the relationship, and the silly ones, so you would feel comfortable and once you are in our hands, we know we can make you do anything we please. So who cares if we look dumb? I certainly don't :) Looks are surely deceptive. So next time you say a girl is dumb, think twice. She’s probably twice as intelligent as you are.

This 1 is a misogynist's treat!!
How else can someone explain "Acting dumb" as being smart..the idea can probably be forgiven as naive,but the examples are imbecile, to say the least!
Would have loved to shred this piece further,but let me keep it to the famous words of Shakespeare,"Frailty thy name is woman".

its not all about ego and intelligence at times when other see that you have trouble with something they tend to help you out. There's always a thin line between the person thinking you are dumb and offering a hand to help you out with a thought to just help. Always have this in mind and dont judge every one as if they think you are dumb.

athi said...
