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.
