Jack Kirby vs. Stan Lee and casual sexism

Reading old Marvel comics, you'll notice that whenever Kirby draws a female character does something heroic or impressive, Stan Lee felt the need to undermine it somehow by having the dialogue contradict the art.
Like here, Kirby drew a scene where Jean Grey frees herself and her team mates with Telekinesis. But apparently Stan Lee felt that a simple woman like Jean Grey couldn't possibly think about using her powers all on her own, so he added dialogue giving Charles Xavier credit for directing her every move, even though it's clear that Kirby didn't draw an Astral image of Charles' head like he always does in scenes like that.
