I know for me I'm a natural blond and it actually does offend me when they call us stupid. Or having a "blond moment" or whatever people say. Because I am actually a pretty smart girl. And those other stereotypes like red heads usually have a short temper? Or the stuff people say about gingers. I think these stereotypes are so stupid. Anyone else agree?
I don't really think people seriously believe the stereotypes.
They're fun to joke around with for some, but I doubt there are many people who seriously believe blondes have a lower lever of intellect or that redheads have short tempers or that gingers lack souls.
I use such phrases as 'having a blonde' moment. But I hold the stereotypes in very low regard. Individuals are exactly that, their own person. With as many people that are in the world it's not inconceivable that some who share certain physical attributes may act in a similar manner, but that is merely coincidence and nothing more. That being said, I can have a pretty short temper with certain things and I do have my share of wtf moments. And I'm a redhead with natural blonde highlights XD
