Why is it a bad thing to say someone is not smart?

Actually though. Why is this insulting? It is true that some people are born with an aptitude to be more book smart than others.

Why is this seen as something to look down on another person for?

Personally, I think I'm smart, but I KNOW I am not that smart, as in not genius smart. And I certainly detest studying enough for me to pass by school as a 'good' student, but not a stellar one.
