I think you should be more charitable; you sound a bit snobbish.
I'm not trying to be snobbish, I'm just expressing that I do not care for, or really even respect, Southern redneck culture. Do you like Middle Eastern Arab culture or northern African culture, where Islamic fundamentalism runs strong and little girls have their vaginas sewn shut? I don't, and I don't think it's "snobbish" to say I look down on that culture. It's the same with Southern culture for me, just to a much, much lesser degree. So I avoid women who appear to be products of that culture.
I deliberately act less intelligent when I am with women.
Ok, there's something really wrong with this. Not necessarily with you (you gotta do what works for you), but with our culture. I guess this is another example of America's extremely anti-intellectual culture. I don't even consider myself that much of an intellectual or even all that smart, just someone who aspires to it and tries to keep as educated as I can, but much of this country (and not just the Southern rednecks who like NASCAR and pork rinds) seem to actively dislike anyone who seems more educated than them.
Best of all, they would do girly things like cooking
Chef Gordon Ramsay would like to have a word with you (as would Chef Puck and many others).
As for their liking NASCAR, the girls I am talking about tended to like what some previous boyfriend had shown them to like. They would soon adapt to anything else though, like standing on the side of a football pitch, or sitting in a classical concert if that's your thing.
Sorry, I don't buy it. People are largely products of their upbringing, and get set into their ways by their mid-20s, more or less. They can (if they're smart and adaptable; "dumb girls" by definition are not) grow and change after that, but only so much. You're not going to take a redneck gun-loving, pitbull-loving, NASCAR-loving girl and turn her into a sophisticated NYC-type woman who likes classical concerts when she's already 35-45. Maybe you're talking about 20-year-old girls, but I'm not young enough for girls like that.
