I've read a lot about how men don't care about a woman's degree but I've noticed in my life that when I tell a man one of my majors is French, they go absolutely crazy. They don't care at all about my other (more useful) major; all they want to talk about is my French ability.

Why is this? Is it because French is considered "sexy-sounding"? Because I dress quite conservatively so I find it hard to believe someone would find me sexy. Which is alright by me, because that's not the image I'm trying to portray.

I really hope men don't assume I'm promiscuous just because I speak French. That seems a little ridiculous.
