I am so annoyed! I think it's weird that there is such a double
standard regarding blond hair women specifically.
In contemporary popular culture it is often stereotyped that menfind blond women more attractive than women with other hair
colour and it is believed that these women may enjoy increased
attention of men.
Stereotype, myth or fact?
It is fact that on all movies there it must be at least one blondhair woman if not more though. Furthermore, Alfred Hitchcock
preferred to cast blond women for major roles in his films,
(as he believed that the audience would suspect them the least)
hence the term "Hitchcock blonde".
I, personally, do not believe in the stereotype. I really do not.
But sadly, there will always be stereotypes in society.
At the same time, women with blond hair are often made fun of
with "dumb blonde jokes". It's like you cannot have blond hair,
be beautiful, and be smart at the same time.
It seems like society sends mixed messages to the young ones.
I really dislike " blonde jokes" and wonder why people still think
they are funny and politically correct when so many other
jokes would be considered a hate crime.
It's just so random...who started the "dumb blonde jokes"
This post is sort of one of my everyday rebellious ways. I take
a stand and refrain from jokes tinged with such references.
Isn't it comforting to know that there is a listening ear out there
in the blogosphere? What say, dear readers? xx
