When telling the garden story, one person is always dumb.  In the historical Christian telling, Eve was dumb because she was deceived by Satan.  God punishes Eve by causing painful childbirth, and tells her she needs to submit to smart Adam who listened the first time.

A more modern telling of the story has Eve being much smarter than dumb Adam.  Eve is heroic in seeing that mankind would not come without a fall, and Adam was just too dumb to see it.  Mormons seem to have latched on to this more modern interpretation of the story.  But in either interpretation of the story, one gender is always seen as the dumber sex. Isn’t there a way to tell the story without the expense of the other gender?
