    I am preparing a speech for Toastmasters based on my own experiences. I won’t bore you with much of it but I’m including the first couple of paragraphs.
    I have always found that when I describe a woman as “intelligent” my listener seldom or ever knows what to say by way of a reply.
    I would be very thankful for a comment from you.

    Thanking you,
    Mattie Lennon.

    “A girl with brains ought to do something with them besides think”.
    (“Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.”)

    Say a woman is ugly, beautiful, plain or even homely and you’ll get a plethora of agreement and disagreement from both sexes. Describe one of the fairer gender as “stupid” and the reaction will not be unanimous one way or the other. “Plain”, “efficient”, “house proud”, “sexually focused”, “man-mad” and “upwardly-mobile” will be met with anything from full concurrence to vicious contradiction. You might even, at times, get a belt in the mouth.
    Have you ever said “that one has a powerful brain”? In the words of Padraig Flynn, ‘ try it sometime.’
    Refer to a female as “intelligent” and you’ll be met with the same poker-faced indifference as if you had described Enda Kenna as a great statesman. I can guarantee you’ll get neither a “she certainly is” or a “no, she’s not” reply. Any comment about a woman’s physical attributes, attitudes, or social traits will cause anything from grudging accord to lively discussion. But any reference to her IQ and you’re in no-comment country. If you comment on the superior intellect of a male you will get anything from a begrudging, concise, if rhetorical, “what good is it to him?” to a diatribe about his shortcomings and track record with maybe a bit of, derogatory information about his pedigree thrown in. But you will be answered!

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet
    effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a excellent job with this.
    Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Internet explorer.
    Outstanding Blog!
