" Dumb blondes"- is it just a sterotype created by the media or do they actually exist??

Is it just a gimmick by some celebrities to gain attention- eg Paris Hilton??

Do we have a desi equivalent of dumb blondes? - Mallika Sherawat comes to mindTongue

Does the dumb act attract the opposite sex?

Are males threatened by female intelligence??

There are dumb blondes and dumb brunettes. Then there are clever blondes and clever brunettes.

Dumb blondes are west's equivalent to the desi Surd

Of course it is. The very existence of Paris Hilton and her ilk is completely dependant on media exposure, media exposure and media exposure for having zero talent, zero talent and zero talent.

I find this very sad actually.

Maybe Malaika Aurora?

Does the dumb act attract the opposite sex?
Maybe. Not me though.

Are males threatened by female intelligence??
Some are for sure. Not me though

 Actually !!! Most of the celebrities are dumb blondes but nowadays some intelligent creatures are also coming into this celebrity category.

Does the dumb act attract the opposite sex?

 God gave us these eyes to watch his/her wonderful creations.So nothing wrong in watch eye candy people.As these celebrities have nothing to do with our daily activities we should'nt bother much about their intelligence,they are born for entertaining us from far....

Even then ,I like to talk to intelligent people rather handsome people.

Are males threatened by female intelligence??

Definitely!!! But a Father may not be scared by daughter's intelligence.

A Brother may not be scared of Sister's intelligence.

A friend (not boy friend type.... seedha sadha friend) may not be scared about his girl friend's intelligence.

But ... a husband is definitely scared of Wife's intelligence and an intelligent wife will not try to display her intelligence but implement her intelligence rather.

 

Cheers,

The bimbette act might garner publicity(mostly negative),but dont really know whether its considered to be a turn on....Which intelligent person would like the company of someone who is mentally vacuous??

You said it Buffie! 

Ofcourse there is no sense  in the term "dumb blonde".
There are brilliant and exceptionally dumb people of all races and hair color. 

How about the south asian girls/boys going blonde Dead in the name of vogue?  The  fake wannabes? Wink

Ofcourse a sterotype.  dumb people come in all color, hair color, shapes and sizes.  Dumbness may be used for publicity, but dragging the word blonde with it - well, irritates me.   Who knows what their hair actually s anyway?  Your Dumb B can go Dumb Brunette the next day.  Remember Brittney?  Remember Ashley Simpson?

may be.  we don't know how dumb she exactly is.  If this kind of publicity worked wonders for her, she herself would be an example of just pretending to be dumb.

 See, since I don't believe in the term dumb blonde, I cannot say that.  I don't knw MS.  if she acts / is dumb, then well, she is dumb. 

Does the dumb act attract the opposite sex?

One must appreciate the variety of people dwelling on the earth.  I am sure some are attracted to dumb people.  Not just opposite, but same sex too.

Are males threatened by female intelligence??

once again, no generalization.  some men are, some are not.  some go to an extreme of thinking that female intelligence is a myth.  LOL

Some of us use different titles on people we hate/love/cherish/blah blah blah....

airheads do exist in all races all colours..that is indisputable..

certain races are associated with ertain types of namecalling from what I understand...
and for blond ladies..dumb...

but anything and everything is used for making a front page or atleast page 3 news.. even "dumb blond" can be used as a title..lolz..maybe the people who use it for themselves are too dumb to realise their implications itself(read hilton).. as for other people.. they just are used to express their hatred...
