Skip to comments.Blonde women born to be warrior princesses (My Genes Made Me Spoiled)
Posted on 01/16/2010 5:59:49 PM PST by GOPGuide
IT really is a case of blonde ambition. Women with fair hair are more aggressive and determined to get their own way than brunettes or redheads, according to a study by the University of California.
Researchers claim that blondes are more likely to display a warlike streak because they attract more attention than other women and are used to getting their own way the so-called princess effect.
Even those who dye their hair blonde quickly take on these attributes, experts found.
The study could cast fresh light on the ability of Joanna Lumley, the actress and former model, to pummel ministers into giving all Gurkha veterans the right to settle in the UK.
It may also help to explain the success of the lead character in Legally Blonde, the hit West End musical based on a film starring Reese Witherspoon, who forces her way to the top of law school despite being perceived as ditzy.
The findings about aggression are contained in research by the University of California, Santa Barbara, to discover whether women who are judged more attractive than others are also more likely to lose their tempers to get what they want.
We expected blondes to feel more entitled than other young women this is southern California, the natural habitat of the privileged blonde, said Aaron Sell, who led the study which has been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science. What we did not expect to find was how much more warlike they are than their peers on campus.

Cute but deadly.
Um, Legally Blonde was just a movie.......It doesn’t prove anything.
Must have more proof. Add some more pictures and then I will give my expert opinion.
Who paid for this study. This manure doesn’t belong on FR.
Maybe not, but this thread is probably worth keeping an eye on.
HA! After dating blondes, brunettes, and red heads, I married a BRUNETTE! 100% jet black hair. You blondes aint got S*** on THIS girl!
P.S. 100% satisfied.
“University of California researchers”
Yeah, and you wonder why California is broke. Why do they spend so much time and money on this dreck!
welcome to FR! some of us have a sense of humor. chill out!
Yes... based on a study of 156 people. Absurdly low number of participants and all from ...”Southern California”? Wow.
Hard to believe it was even published. Shame shame.
I am blonde, originally from NY. Legally blonde and naturally blonde. I demand a retraction or I will kick some very scientific ass!!
Fix it dammit!
UCSB did with grant money that came from YOUR tax dollars.
Female getting her way-
It has less to do with her being blonde and more to do with her attractiveness (hair color does not matter).
A beautiful woman is constantly catered to by men who would like to sleep with her even though most know they have NO PRAYER.
You haven’t been here long enough to decide what content should be on this site unless you are Jim Thompson.
Agreed . I don't know what theories are taught today , but I have remained convinced B.F. Skinner's extentions of the theories of operant conditoning have validity . Grow up with the name B.F. and the last name Skinner and see if you do not learn some behaviors .
Except redheads who of course have no souls .
Because nobody knew good looking, young, blonde women have a sense of entitlement until it was confirmed in a peer reviewed journal.
Brunettes RULE. :)
'What does it look like?' she finally asked.
The policewoman replied, 'It's square and it has your picture on it..'
The driver finally found a square mirror in her purse, looked at it and handed it to the policewoman. 'Here it is,' she said.
The blonde officer looked at the mirror, then handed it back saying,
'OK, you can go. I didn't realize you were a cop.'
Are you back in the sand box?
Bah. I’m a blonde, I don’t much care about having things my way all the time.
Green eyes too, and not a jealous bone in my body.
Unusual birthmark on my fanny, and not royal.
This post is useless without pics. ;)
Still, I prefer redheads...
University of California, Santa Barbara. WHERE ELSE?
Working class taxpayers don’t need to pay more taxes for — SoCal U doing study on blonds. Many years ago read interesting paper showing how much tax on working people is used to pay for the education of the children of the upper class — that is university education.
We don’t need anymore shrinks worrying about how blonds “feel” or how blonds are “perceived” or what anybody considers “beauty.” Quite frankly. We need doctors & engineers and technicians and tool and die makers. We don’t need to spend any more money to give fancy degrees to Marxists calling themselves sociologists.
It was a slow night at the nightclub and the ventiloquist dipped into his blonde jokes. He would set them them up and the dummy knocked them down.
Then a platinum blonde stood up, trembling with anger. She interrupted the act and said, “We blondes have been the butt of jokes for too long. We have worked long and hard for respect ...” (and so forth and so on for quite a while.)
Finally the ventriloquist said, “Ma’am, I’m terribly sorry. It’s just the act, nothing personal was intend—”
And she shouted him down: “You be quiet mister! I’m talking to that little SOB on your knee.”
(Shirley someone here has to have not heard this one. Colts score!)
I want redheads, brunettes, and blondes at the same time.
Redheads most often get their way with me......
>”This post is useless without pics.”
A third arrives. They grab a table. The clink glasses and yell SIX FREAKIN' WEEKS.
A fourth blonde arrives, and then a fifth. With each arrival the glasses are clinked and the cry of six freakin weeks is heard.
Finally, the bartender comes over.
"Ladies, I know your celebrating something," he says. "Would you mind if I asked what it was."
"Yeah," Blonde 1 says. "You know how everyone says blondes are stupid? We'll we all went out and got one of those jigsaw puzzles that said 3 to 5 years. And we finished it in SIX FREAKIN' WEEKS!
Don’t call me Shirley, but tell another joke so the Colts will score again. Heck, tell 100 jokes and have the Colts score 100 points.
Beat those traitor ravens and so them who is boss.
What, no raven-haired lassies? Tsk, tsk.
My husband claims that I can be intimidating.
Guess that’s cause I’m a blonde :-)
>”I want redheads, brunettes, and blondes at the same time.”
Been there, done it, got the T-Shirt. I’ll take my brunette wife, (alone) any day (or night, (or both)).
(and no, she isnt watching me over my shoulder as I type this. LOL)
roflmao! thanks for that one!
Checking my photobucket...
I’ve got a Tonya Harding, a Lizzie Borden, a Bonnie Parker, a “Bad Seed,” two “Village of the Damned,” and some Goldilocks (committed the b&e at the Bears residence).
Yeah. From what I’ve seen, Redheads are by far the most determined.
What do you call a brunette between two blondes?
Now you’re cooking. Got any more? :)
Quick, hide the bleach!
yeah, pics of YOU!
By the way, I got a laugh out of your tagline. I have to share that with some friends of mine.
A blonde and brunette—both bodacious babes—were walking along the sidewalk, and the blonde says, “Isn’t that your boyfriend in the florist shop?”
And the brunette says, “Yeah, I think that’s Bob.”
“It looks like he’s buying a dozen roses!”
Her friend gets quiet then says, “Damn. I hadn’t planned on spending the evening with my legs in the air ... “
Puzzled, the blonde pondered this picture in her mind carefully then said,
“Don’t you have a vase?”
