1. Everyone Assumes You’re Dumb

Somehow or another, it became a thing to assume that all blondes are dumb. Whether this had something to do with Hugh Hefner surrounding himself with a harem of giggling blonde girls, who felt that hanging out with an old man would somehow further their career, we’re not too sure. But in 2015, all blondes are still paying the price for something that happened thousands of years ago (or 20 years ago, who knows?). Or perhaps it’s still happening!

Unfortunately, whether you get a job with a high flying law firm or whether you win the Nobel prize, folk everywhere will raise an eyebrow or two, and look God smacked to see you vanquish all preconceptions. Because, you know, you’re blonde and you’re supposed to be dumb and all that.

2. Everyone Assumes You’re Shallow

Yup, blondes everywhere are assumed to be shallow. Again, we can thank pop culture, bad movies, and Playboy bunnies for this. Wherever there is a good looking woman saying something shallow, she seems to always be blonde. Which means all blonde women are shallow, right?!

Okay, glad we got that one sorted. Because, you know, all blondes are the same and think the same way. Hey, it’s the way God made us.

3. People Take You Less Seriously Than Anyone Else

“I’m gonna go and read a book.”

“Haha.”

“No seriously, I’m gonna go and sit in the garden and read a book.”

“Haha. Don’t be silly. The game is on.”

“I’m going to go and read a book, I’m telling you!”

“I said haha twice. Don’t make me say it again. Now, sit down.”

4. Chlorine Is A Nightmare

Your friends have invited you to the pool for a swim, but you seem nervous and hesitant.

“What’s the matter? Why have you turned pale? Want some water? Hey! SOMEONE GET HER SOME WATER! SHE’S FOAMING AT THE MOUTH!”

Chlorine is a blonde’s worst enemy, as it basically can turn your hair green. Yet what are you supposed to do at a pool party, wear a shower cap and look like a freak? There’s only one thing for it – anti-chlorine shampoo. Sigh.

5. You’re Not Expected To Have Body Hair

We’ve all seen that look our boyfriends have given us when they’ve finally seen all of us.

“Wow. I just didn’t expect you to have any body hair. Wow. Sorry, give me a moment to compute this. I need to sit down, give me a chair please.”

What were they expecting? We’re blonde, not hairless cats!
