Blondes Make Boys Bimbos?

This weekend The Times published an article about the “bimbo delusion,” which is the act of men stereotyping blonde-haired women.

According to studies done by Thierry Meyer, a professor of social psychology at the University of Paris, men subconsciously drop their IQ level upon contact with a blonde.

Men dumb themselves down for blondes exclusively? Interesting theory, but yeah…no.

While I can personally attest to dumbing-down conversation to bimbos, it must be said that the phrase “bimbo” can be used towards any person who comes across as being dumb as a brick.

A rabble-rousing study like this needn’t be broken down: from Guidos to Gingers and names too foul to print, stereotypes nearly always get in the way of a person’s core personality. (Admittingly the article states this exact point.)

But since we’re talking about blondes, let’s at least have some fun with it. I mean, they always have more fun anyways, right?

Dumb Blonde jokes are usually as dumb as their objects of ridicule but this one I must admit is pretty damn funny (and almost always true to boot).

I’ll be the first to admit that “tech stuff” can be daunting. I’ll also be one (of many) to admit that this ditzy duo has half-a-brain between both of them…

  1. I’m *pretty sure* the blondestar clip isn’t real…

    at least I REALLY hope it’s a hoax. People that dumb shouldn’t be allowed to drive.
