A similar conversation is everything demanding a 'take'

i often feel as though stupidity, like low caste, is something forced upon people, as opposed to something innate

So both words semantically have to do with some kind of impediment or difficulty, but I think @linebaugh is right about stupidity being a sort of false/hollow understanding, as displayed by the mount stupid plot.

We are stupid on the question of bug desire, no question. We are basically stupid when it comes to non-human minds generally.

in some ways the reverse of this process

PROPOSITION - a GENIUS is a monster who commandeers mental & spiritual resources from the wider community in the same way as a capitalist impoverishes others or as an empire impoverishes its vassal states.

To me, it's far more offensive to say intelligence isn't real, because then you're stuck with "well they're just lazy" or something when called upon to explain why these people can't hang with post-industrial society.
