So if I understand you right, you're saying that showing girls as intellectuals is the same as promoting anti-intellectualism. What were you saying the other day about not being a misogynist?
I think I was more irritated that the only lego school in modern times couldn't have been gender-neutral. I was saying that having it be a "girly" set would encourage male children to associate studying as "girly" and so hence dissuade them (sad but true, the immaturity of American children). In a sense showing girls as intellectuals is the same as promoting anti-intellectualism if it is done at the exclusion (and likely discouragement) of men.
