Passes at Girls Who Wear Glasses

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd has written a book entitled Are Men Necessary? I haven't read it, but supposedly she claims that most men dislike intelligent women and don't want to marry them.

The poet Martial said much the same thing (11.19):
You ask why I don't want to marry you, Gallia? You're learned. My prick is forever making a grammatical error.

Quaeris cur nolim te ducere, Gallia? Diserta es.
    saepe soloecismum mentula nostra facit.
As for me, I prefer an intelligent woman, even a plain one, to a pretty bimbo any day.
