'The reason that the all-American boy prefers beauty to brains is that he can see better than he can think."

Would someone please transcribe this into Spanish for me?
I would use a free on-line transcription but I would prefer
a personal transcription. Thanks

On behalf of all American males I would like to thank her. Now, at least, we have an excuse for acting the way we do. It's somewhat enabling to have a biological basis to justify our behavior.

LOL

I personally think this is not an all-exclusive thing of the American male. rolleyes

Not even of the male...

True observation! Sad ... but true.

What's an all-American boy? (I'm serious, I don't know what that is supposed to mean)

this is a good question, what exactly an all-american boy ? can anybody answer this?
An/The all-American boy" is sort of a combination of the ideal and the typical American boy (one who embodies the traits/characteristics [for better or worse] of the American culture). The phrase is probably related to the nation-wide competitions in sports (at the high-school level) which work their way up from all-state to regional and finally all-American. (Since I'm not big on sports, I may have muddled the details about this). For "all" you could substitute "prototypical" / "quintessential" / "paradigmatic" (except that these are not frequently used words).

Note: "the all-American boy" does not mean "all American boys".

Here you have my traslation...

"El motivo por lo que todos los chicos Americanos prefieren la belleza fisica a la inteligencia es debido a que pueden ver mejor de lo que pueden pensar".

this is a really good translation

Just another name for a boy from America, like me grin

now If you ever hear Sounthern, or Country Boy/Girl then that is most likly reffering to people in the southern Unted States, like me also grin
They may be country girls, but they're Southern belles. grin

la razon que a los chicos americanos les interesa mas la belleza fisica en vez de la belleza de la mente, es que puedan ver mejor que pueden pensar!

this is close at least!

Now I can tell a woman why I tend to objectify her. It's not an attitude problem, but a mental impairment. Might be good for some sympathy.
