Why do people think blondes are dumb?
Because the stereotypical blonde is pictured as "attractive" at the expense of "intelligent". In the West, at least, attractive women are said to have less impetus to develop their minds.
- ALL blondes are NOT dumb. But some have gray matter that is partially bleached out.
- Blondes aren't dumb. Non-blondes are just jealous, so they call them dumb. It is a myth. After all, "blonds" are generally acknowledged as brainy.
So everyone else (brunettes, readheads, black-haired and grey-haired women) are always and exclusively intelligent? Wow! That is AWESOME! - I think I will buy myself a dark haired wig.
Or, could it be that dumb is dumb, as nasty is nasty, as nice is nice, no matter what the hair color?
You know how people call girls with blonde hair 'dumb blondes'? And how there are jokes about people like brunettes and redheads and blondes, and the blondes are always saying something dumb? Usually now, when you act sort of off or dumb, people say you are having a " blonde moment." which means you are having a dumb moment.
If blondes are so dumb then why do people dye their hair blonde? Because blondes are not dumb. Actually, the hair dying has to do with looks, not intelligence. People may equate being blonde with being sexy and having guys take care of you. The blonde stereotype was started because of the common expression that blondes have more fun and the lousy roles blondes are given on television and in the movies.
I don't think many people do think blondes are dumb. It's just one of those generalisations based on the false assumption that facial characteristics determine how we think and act, which isn't true. Any sane thinking person will reject this idea and reject racist concepts too that seek to generalise also.
If blondes are so stupid and people make fun of them then why do people keep dying their hair blonde?
Because they want the attention blondes are not stupid. That is just a myth and people dye their hair blonde because they don't care what other people think about their hair and they are brave to be called stupid cause its not true. That is a very interesting question. They do say the blondes are dumb BUT they also say that blondes have more fun and that men fancy blondes more. If you see a…
No. Blondes are sooo stupid that they are probably so used to pain because they keep tripping over air, so they don't feel it as much over time. Although some blondes will think they are bleeding to death when they get a papercut, or they think they broke their foot when they stub their toe. I guess it all depends on how dumb the blonde is. By Bunni P.S this is supposed to just be…
How come boys only seem to fancy blondes or find blondes attractive and how come they only like girls who are great at sports and like sports?
Personally, i love a redhaired girl, but guys are pompus and stupid and think that most blondes are slutty and dumb, hence the dumb blonde jokes. And most guys like sports so they want girls to have something in common with them. But never change yourself for them. Good luck:) Well Im Not a Guy,but I think the reason is because Blonde is Alluring.Im Blonde,but Nobody likes me,So Dont change yourself just for a guy,but…
I question the intelligence of people who think brunettes are smarter or in any way better than blondes. We are ALL equal, I myself am a brunette and I can quite obviously see haircolour does not affect someones intelligence. It shouldn't take a genius to figure this out either. It is nothing other than a stereotype people should ignore. I know blondes are just as intelligent as brunettes because my best friend is blonde. She…
Because they may be fighting for what they believe in, do it for money (to get paid), or do it for someone they care about. What people may think is dumb other people may think is the best choice. No one is perfect, and it is just some people's natures to think fighting is the best solution. and they are dumb!
This stereo type came from a little science. You see, intelligent people have more zinc and copper in there hair, and copper results in a darker hair color... you see where I'm going with this. But then again, I am blond and I am on the A honor role, so it can go both ways.... But really, I think the term 'dumb blonde' is a rather new phrase invented in the past century.
I have been doing some research on this project, because blond jokes drive me crazy. (I am a blond myself, and am not stupid whatsoever.) The best answer is that the world's first female president was a blond. She ruled Iceland in the late 1900's. I think we can say that dumb blonds only exists as much as dumb red heads, brunettes, or people with black hair.
Origins of the Term 'Dumb Blonde' There's actually a pretty extensive article in Wikipedia that addresses the origins of the myth. If it is a myth. Here are more opinions and answers from other WikiAnswers contributors: From someone who lacked the intelligence to find a way to spend their time more productively. Answer I personally think that most blondes are pretty smart. Not only smart but hot, funny, kind, and trustworthy. ~ Excuse me, but…
Half yes half no. You see, the stereo type 'dumb blonde' comes from this: When you are intelligent, you have more copper and zinc in your hair. Copper darkens the hair color, and since blondes are the lightest hair color... you see what I mean. But I am a blonde and I have straight A's. So it can go both ways.
Definitely girls, and even though I'm a guy. I think it's VERY idiotic to call a girl stupid by the colour of her hair, and the fact that some people actually believe that the colour of your hair determines weather or not you're stupid, just makes them stupid for believing it. Finally someone who isn't a complete d***head about blonde girls! Im sick of people thinking that blondes are dumb! who ever made that up…
