Cogitat, ergo sum?

Post to Twitter

Just the other day, a friend of mine was dubbed ‘smart’ by her 10-year-old son’s classmate because she successfully assisted her son in completing his math homework. The complimentary context went something like this:

My friend’s son’s friend: You’re smart. Must be because you’re not married.

My friend: Ummm… huh?

My friend’s son’s friend: If you were married, your husband would do the thinking for you.

Stinkin’ thinkin’?

    Maybe the classmate has been reading Linda Hirshman? http://feministlawprofs.law.sc.edu/?p=1470
