OH you are so right!! I read a great book that dealt with this. It was 
called "School Girls" it's new and it's good. A woman talked to 2 groups 
of girls in junior high and some of them talked about the "playing dumb" 
factor and boys.

When I was in school the smart girls were the most popular in school. I 
think that it had more to deal with economics than smarts. It was a real 
competative school and the dumb girls were actually looked down upon.
