I like both the dramatic flair and the ironic undertones of insecurity.

At first, I figured your ugliness was relegated to your inner self, but then I saw a close-up pic of you. Yikes.
Coincidentally, "Relentless Cunt" is a lingerie line I've been working on for a while.

But really, I would say that the systematic labeling of smart women as bitches is hardly relegated to this message board. It's just perhaps a bit more visible here because there is less of a social barrier to post harsh words.
I'd go so far as to say that most intelligent women in the United States are quite used to this common defense mechanism employed primarily by intimidated men, and have come to expect it in certain types of circumstances. I know that I have.
I don't get that. I find intelligence VERY sexy. So please...carry on with your sexy self.
It usually goes something like this:
Art gallery opening. Thursday night. Pretentious minimalist florescent yellow paintings on wall. Crowd buzzes with the sort of noisy clatter that is hovering perilously close to breaking out from lively art party to full on drunken frat boy infestation.
Ed Hardy t-shirt wearing guy approaches quietly pensive bookish girl in corner.
Guy: Don't you love the [completely irrelevant attribute] in this piece? The artist himself told me [completely fake fact].
Girl nods politely and tries to avoid eye contact.
Guy: I'm thinking about picking one up for my second home in [tacky and over-priced vacationing community].
Girl nods and steps further away.
Guy follows and moves several steps closer.
Guy: I'm mostly tied up in emerging markets and biotech right now, but my broker wants me to diversify. What do you think of this one?
Guy points to ugliest piece in the entire show.
Girl: It's not my favorite.
Guy: Oh yeah? Because it really reminds me of [random artist he once had a poster of in his college dorm room]. And I think it would match my couch.
Girl: I wouldn't recommend buying a million dollar work of art because it matches your couch. Perhaps you should reevaluate your priorities. Excuse me, I think my friend is trying to flag me down on the other side of the room.
Girl turns sideways and squeezes through the crowd to try to escape. She winces slightly as she hears the guy mutter under his breath.
