    No.

    Here in England at least, intelligence has nothing to do with 'class'.

    Re: Sapiosexual: an Euphemism for Classist?

    I would say I am sexually attracted to intelligence for sure, but I am not silly enough to only understand that as a middle class thing. I still consider myself to be working class (I am currently employed in unskilled labour earning minimum wage) and intelligent - so lets hope class does not come into anyone valuing my intelligence.

    Re: Sapiosexual: an Euphemism for Classist?

    Smart is sexy, but not enough by itself. A physical attraction is also a component, as well as kindness, warmth, and humor.

    A big brain doesn't do it for me, even though I like one in the mix.

    Ultimately, I don't think I could be paired with someone who was simple or anti-intellectual, as I don't feel I would ever be understood for who I truly am.

    The same is not true of friendship. I have friends all along the spectrum.

    Can you give us a definition of "classist" before we start deconstructing.

    Is it a noun or an adjective/adverb? Can you give us a picture or some kind of illustration of what this word is?

    I can't see that "Urban" dictionary as a credible one. First of all chicago (?!?) and the second

    'Classist' isn't a verb. So some people are 'classist' in the privacy of their own heads.

    Will this topic now join the holy trinity?

    1. Bisexuals
    2. Racism
    3. Cut vs. uncut

    Or is it a subset of 2 - racism?

    God Chicago - shudder. For an institution that appears good from the outside, that place seems to knock out nutjobs by the dozen (the economics department especially always appears particularly horrible!).

    And as to why Oxford sold MA's for a tenner. Supposedly they reckoned a BA from Oxford was the equivalent of MA anywhere else.

    It's not just Oxford, Cambridge and Dublin do the same. They also have some weird thing about the MA being ranked hirer than a PhD - I can't quite remember the full story there, but my partner told me his MA (Cantab was technically hire ranked than his PhD)

    I don't really care, my masters rank gave me the best title - Drs. (doctorandus) Everyone outside of the Netherlands straight away assumed I was a doctor.

    I think may be to do with an MA being considered by some to entitle the holder to formally call themselves esquire. And therefore rate above a gentlemen.

    Sure that makes sense. I think the church might be involved somewhere as well. I remember hearing that honorary degrees are considered more important than ones you earn, as being honoured by your peers was more important than hard work.
