My main comment:
My parents keep getting smarter as I get older.
My dad readily admits my mother is smarter than he is on most things - then says, "Who else could I trust to raise smart children and keep me in line?" She has a bachelor's degree and he has an associate's. That said, he has always been the main supporter of our family; after he retired from the Air Force after 18 years, he went back to school and got the associates.
Side note as a history geek: Some of the effects perceived to be feminism may actually be side effects of society's industrialization; depersonalization in general has huge effects on society as a whole. Just a thought. When people cease to be people, many things change.
