Why do people put educated people on a pedestal?

Like if I go home and tell someone an educated person is rude, the reaction is almost as though it's warranted. They're educated. They're better.

It it freaks me out


Have an opinion?

  • We are!
    People like educated people because we have this special gift every wants but just is beyond their reach.

    • You are a jerk. And I hate to tell you this but with this attitude I wouldn't be surprised if everyone hates you

    • Show All
    • Delusional fool.

      Respect is reserved for people who work hard. Not people who talk the talk but don't do the walk

    • Your definition of respect is that of a simpleton who believes hard work is the definition of respect when in fact hard work is evidence of their own morals. Respect is earned because of a mans moral not the action he takes, but his own beliefs.

      Or am i being a foolish delusional?
      Can you provide me a new name if im right?

  • Just remember, not every educated person is rude.
