Are All Blondes Really Dumb?

Are All Blondes Really Dumb?
Blondes have been getting a bad rap for centuries, but do they truly deserve being labeled dumb? After all, there are some very rich blondes that have made it to the top: Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon, Barbara Walters, and Candice Bergen to name a few. Okay, so what if most of them used their looks to get there, the point is they're there, right?

How did all this start? Was Marilyn Monroe the culprit, with her sexy figure and childish giggle? No sir; the blonde damsel in distress came along way before Marilyn proved that some like it hot. Let us rewind back to the Victorian era, when women were still considered fragile, weak, incredibly sexual, and flighty.

well, I do declare...

In the 19th century, amid the Victorian era, females were preferably delicate, blonde and white-skinned women. They gave off this angelic imagery and innocence that the era embraced.

In a novel entitled The Woman in White by renowned Victorian author Wilkie Collins, the descriptions of blondes in the tale are attractive and seemingly delicate, whereas descriptions of brunette women were unappealing and somewhat masculine -- let's just say it; brown-haired, olive-skinned women were ugly. And most literature from that era took such a stance.

So because the brunettes stood up for themselves and their independence while the blondes held on dearly to their men to be saved and taken care of, blonde women slowly became known as weak and unintelligent, so to speak.

the peroxide did it

And seeking men's desires and approval, even brunettes felt that being blonde was the right way to go and began dying their hair in a desperate attempt to compete with their fair-haired counterparts.

Even Roman women would dye their hair blonde with whatever products they could find because they were jealous of the golden-haired German women brought back as captives by their husbands.

And here we are today, cracking blonde jokes by the dozen that refer to both their stupidity and promiscuity. So are blondes really dumb? After all, don't all stereotypes stem from some element of truth?

blondes have more fun!

The most infamous blonde, Barbie, has been the center of attention and adoration of millions of young girls worldwide. And only once they dyed their hair did Marilyn Monroe, Pamela Anderson and Anna Nicole Smith hit the big time.

The stigma of having the brain activity of a cactus and the sexual morals of a nymphomaniac was only perpetuated by such women (Marilyn took mostly dumb, sexy blonde roles; Pam had not one, but two homemade porn movies circulating around the globe; and Nicole married a man who was older than dirt). After all, it was Marilyn who said: "Sex is part of nature. I go along with nature." Now that sounds wholesome to me.

Evidently, however, such women are not so dumb, as they have (had) plenty of money and millions of men worldwide flock to bed each night fantasizing about what it would be like to play with these babes' blonde tresses.

does dying count?

A blonde is a blonde, whether it's real or imitation color. Once a girl goes blonde, she is placed into that sexual dummy category. A girl I knew, who died her hair more often than she showered, decided to go blonde and upon doing so, noticed a few things. First, people began talking to her in a slower manner, as though she never got hooked on phonics; and second, she began behaving in a more ditzy, giddy manner.

Maybe blondes give off this air, or maybe we just assume that blondes have more fun, and therefore don't understand the complexity of "seriousness," or books without pictures for that matter. But if there's one thing I've learned the hard way, it's that the word "blonde" is not synonymous with "attractive."

the name's blonde, dumb blonde

I have met more than my fair share of dumb blondes, then again, I have met my fair share of dumb brunettes and redheads as well, but for some reason, every time a blonde has the I.Q. equivalent of asparagus, I tend to think, Well, no kidding -- she's blonde.

When I saw Farrah Fawcett's unforgettable stint on David Letterman's late-night show, promoting her shoot for Play..boy in 1997, I realized that she's the quintessential fluffy-haired kind of babe that gives blondes this dummy appeal.

Soon after that, I watched an episode of Pam Anderson's V.I.P. -- what a waste of dialogue -- and realized that many blondes want to be thought of as airheads because that's what people have come to expect.

Just ask Lil' Kim, who insists on passing off pink dental floss as evening wear in all of her videos; blonde hair just adds to her bimbo appeal, not that she needs anything to add to such appeal...

when I growed up

Then again, as most women are still dying their hair platinum blonde and inflating their chests so that they can save on airbag costs for their cars, many women who go blonde do so for the attention that comes with it -- not for the Mensa invitations. And no matter how intelligent Darva Conger claims she is, she did ultimately marry a spurious multimillionaire on live television -- now that's ingenious. Then again, there are women like Hillary Clinton who dispel the myth in its totality. Isn't that right, senator?

So is it fair that we think that most blondes get to park in handicap zones and put whiteout on their computer screens when they make errors? Of course not; after all, we don't place blond guys in the "dumb" category, right Brad?

So in the end, maybe it is widely believed that blondes have more fun and gentlemen prefer blondes, but when all is said and done, I'd have no problem taking Salma, Catherine or Halle home.

But the next time you meet a blonde, don't assume that she's about as smart as a cantaloupe; listen to her. But if she uses the word "like" forty times in each sentence, and thinks that "bimbo" is that cute little deer in the Disney cartoon, then maybe you should leave some room for her in the "blonde jokes" section of the world.
