RE: Because you keep asking about it.

I have hard time understanding this matter:
I got to a little argument, in which we're arguing about is matter x an insult.
I pretty much stated: 'Person A is smarter than person B, granted he's better test results on all subjects.'
And by smarter I obviously imply 'better educated'. However, the person B takes this as a serious insult, for some reason. Why so? Even though I clarified him afterwards that by 'smarter' I mean 'better educated', would this still be an insult? What the hell?

Person B lacks the education to realise what you meant?

People take insults differently, whether or not they're intentionally there to hurt or suggest a different meaning - since human interpretation of certain topics vary with exposure.

Someone could say "all a girl does is sit around while the men do everything".
How do you interpret this? On one hand, women do housework around their house and are employed. However, historically, men have been praised/acknowleged as the hard workers.

I'd type a better argument, but I have a headache and need a nap. But it essentially comes down to individual interpretation and acceptance of word definition.

RE: Because you keep asking about it.

Saying someone is smarter is like saying someone else is dumber. It's not really an insult though, if it's actually true. But words evolve, and that might be why he thought of it so.

Just like how the word "literally" does not even mean literally anymore, I'm sure smart and dumb have become more used in insults than factual descriptions. You're probably better off actually saying "better educated" or "more informed" than smart/dumb.

RE: Because you keep asking about it.

I've updated my profile picture to reflect my support and recognition for the legalisation of same sex marriage in more countries around the world.

If you have a problem with that, please have a lovely discussion about it with me over PM.
