Are blondes dumb?
Here's a provacative little musing on the mystery of blonde hair. The piece is a little lengthy, but it's a fun meandering through one "born-blonde" woman's thoughts. Hard news this ain't, but it might give you some fodder for this weekend's cocktail party.
As any woman born blonde will tell you, golden tresses guarantee a lifetime of weird encounters. Certainly, with men who have bought into the myth about the sexual allure and availability of blondes. Just consider Mae West's quip, "A hard man is good to find," or Lauren Bacall's famous catchphrase in To Have and Have Not, in which she tells Humphrey Bogart that if he wants her he should "just whistle."
In the bar, the blonde has much the same affect on men as a Venus flytrap on insects, while the two brunettes (who are both prettier) get a fraction of the free drinks. But here too there's evidence of the dark side of light hair. While blondie enjoys free flowing booze, she also earns the crude comments and clumsy mauling that brunettes are spared.
