I just read this take:
I think it's quite exaggerated yes, but if you look at the reactions. People are really mean about blonde girls. Saying that they're dumb, slutty and ugly.
The worst part is, those people who say that get a lot of upvotes!
Why do people think it's okay to bash people with a certain hair colour?
I was born with blonde hair and never dyed it. I experience in life also a lot of hate against blonde hair and for some reason people think it's justified.
Why is that? Is it because some people think it's preferred by men to be blonde and that's why it's okay to be so mean?

Because an attractive blonde is the iconic beautiful woman ( see Marilyn Monroe). Partially because it requires two recessive genes making blondes far rarer than brunettes ( that rarity like the value of gold, a finite resource is enhanced by both being similar, at least metaphorically, in color.)
That will likely never change and the result is a general attitude - with no basis in reality - that blondes are for some reason - supposed to be dumber by the fact they are blonde. Not true but a convenient scapegoat for an historically more valued commodity.
Though the gene is recessive, it makes up in part for the limited population in that blondes are usually perceived to be the "alpha" female and will be pursued by the alpha males to a greater degree. This would contradict the stereotype of the "dumb blonde" as they would have the strongest and most superior genetic components that would be further increased as that characteristic grows stronger through generations. Oddly, I've never heard blondes being considered either more attractive (or, conversely, more stupid, in males). It seems that lacking the natural advantage fairness in females seems to confer, there is less negative stereotyping as well.0

i have NO mean opinions towards blonde girls. theyre great! they really are, but i CANNOT STAND girls like that chick who wrote the take. they either genuinely believe or troll about the idea that their fcxking hair influences how wonderful they are as a person in comparison to everyone else. gimme a break! -.-
id say the EXACT same thing to a brunette who did the same.1
