As Bullwinkle moose would say "Hello average IQer's".
It's actually not that bad down here.
Just one more layer of feeling like an outsider, frankly. But sometimes you're lucky enough to find a partner who is your intellectual equal.
r2 Speak for yourself.
"Gay and high IQ" - very little here on DL
Speak for yourself, R5.
Well thank the fucking gods of superior gray matter that we have you R5.
So math is easy for you, then?
And try being super hot. It ain't easy. When you look too gorgeous, people assume your are dumb.
No, R9. People assume you are dumb if you look like you enjoy life. You must train yourself to look slightly pissed at all times.
Actually studies have shown that people think attractive/beautiful people are more intelligent ( along with many other positive qualities) than unattractive people. And other studies have confirmed that it may actually be true.
Not anyone who has actually been to an Ivy League school R11, since it's too obvious an inverse correlation.
As you would expect. Sublimation and repression are great spurs to academic achievement.
Gay men are smarter than straight men. Haven't found any studies about Lesbians in comparison to straight women though.
Another thing I read is that 80% of a man's intelligence is due to his mother (80% of the genes involved in intelligence are on the "X" chromosome - males have one, females have two, one from each parent, so for females, intelligence is inherited equally from both parents.)

I'll admit things might have worked out a bit better for me.
News flash: straight and high IQ isn't a walk in the park either, unless you're a white male, and even then having to dumb down every thought in order to "fit in" with the macho bro slacker crowd causes serious long-term stress.
Yeah, it was no picnic -- but I did get some good ass.
gay and high IQ, but seriously slighted in the taste department. boy is that website fug!
It is troubling to have to deal with gay and low IQ people. So I drink.
Oh, yes, my heart bleeds for those poor, poor smart straight men, r16.
