I HATE Blonde Jokes

So I posted this picture on my Facebook the other day because it was a blonde joke that I actually found funny. The response from a couple people reminded me exactly why I hate blonde jokes. It brought me back to high school when people would tell me I was stupid because I was blonde. Or that I wouldn’t understand certain things because I was blonde. I know it shouldn’t, but I always take it to heart.

I will always remember someone calling me dumb or stupid because of my hair color. I remember a time in college, while sitting is sociology class a girl raised her hand during a class discussion about stereotypes and said “I don’t want to be stereotypical but maybe I’m just having a blonde moment because I don’t understand….” And when she said she didn’t want to be stereotypical she was not talking about her blonde moment comment. I almost shot out of my chair and strangled her! It was probably the stupidest statement I had ever heard and it definitely didn’t come from a blonde.

I don’t think blonde jokes would be so hurtful to me if people didn’t actually think I was stupid because I’m blonde. So be careful what you say. That blonde you insult might be a super fantastic blogger one day! Ha! But really, where did this stereotype come from? Does this offend anyone other than me?
