Boobs And Brains Not Mutually Exclusive
The Stiletto ^ | December 27, 2006 | The Stiletto

Posted on 12/28/2006 8:16:07 AM PST by theothercheek

Upon learning that Monica Lewinsky, 33, graduated from the prestigious London School of Economics with master of science degree in social psychology, Washington Post staff writer Libby Copeland was jolted down to the DNA in her bone marrow: “She did not!!”

The notion that “the same bubbly gal who once described the act of flashing her thong at the president as a ‘small, subtle, flirtatious gesture’ has now written a lofty-sounding thesis … ‘In Search of the Impartial Juror: An Exploration of the Third Person Effect and Pre-Trial Publicity’” was, Copeland wrote, “akin to finding a rip in the time-space continuum, or discovering that Kim Jong Il is a natural blond.”

No argument from The Stiletto so far. But calling this a moment that makes you “question your fundamental assumptions about the world” she advances her thesis that the world is full of “dumb-but-smart” people by resorting to a fundamental assumption – read, gender-bashing stereotype - that is as unfair as it is untrue: “stupidity has historically been as much of an asset for women as double D's.”

The Stiletto understands that women who have teeny breasts are comforted by the fanciful notion that curvy women have teeny brains – but she takes umbrage at “boob bashing” nonetheless. On behalf of bosomy-and-brainy women everywhere, The Stiletto has launched a crusade against “boobism” – the last remaining acceptable form of anti-woman bias.

Even though the most brazen boobists are other women, this flat-out stereotype must still be repudiated once and for all.

Our double-D daughter found out early that most men assumed she was:
A. Stupid
B. Easy
C. Both
D. If he was really lucky, her daddy owned a liquor store.

She was none of the above and is now completing a PhD in Genetics.

Oh, yeah, and she found a man who looked at her face when he spoke to her. They're married now.....

Yup. Copeland twisted herself up in knots trying to explain why the 21-year old Monica was dumb-but-smart and the man who was more than twice her age was still smart.

Good for her! And what a great guy she's marrying. But do you want to bet that throughout her career, male scientists will give her a hard time? In a male dominated field, men are the biggest boobists of all. In every other area, women are. Clearly, your daughter won the genetics lottery. All the insecure men and jealous women will just have to suck it up and live with it.

First, in the interest of full disclosure, let me say that I am pro-breasts.

Having said that, how about that Monica? Don't let anybody tell you that lady doesn't know how to use her head!

She's at least trying to turn her life around. She could have gotten lipo'd and plastic surgeried enough to go the Playboy route but instead chose to improve her mind. Instead of sinking deeper in the mud, she is lifting herself out of it.

Pshaw. Here we go again.

"Even though the most brazen boobists are other women, this flat-out stereotype must still be repudiated once and for all."

And here we have "trimom" showing us how bigoted women can be---about men.

And by the way, you don't "know" if your daughter was easy or not----unless you had a key to her chastity belt.

I don't recall Lewinsky having boobs, or perhaps more correctly, boobs worth mentioning.

The Washington Post writer was equating double Ds with stupidity. As in women with tits don't have wits.

You made a good point.

There does seem to be a certain degree of sexism in our culture, with a failure to believe that women can be extremely intelligent. Women have made important advances in science. An example:

Marie Curie

Furthermore, there are women working in much of the advanced research into computer science, engineering, occupational safety, physics, chemistry, and every other scientific discipline.

Recently, girls have been found to be more advanced, academically, than boys. It is evidenced by the increasing number of women in our colleges and universities.

LOL. Just had mine yesterday. I was curious, so I asked. Do you know how hard it is to use that machine on a woman with tiny tits? The technician told me that they have to use tongue depressors to stretch out what little they have onto the X-ray plate. Geez.

Why it depends on the light and your clothing my dear. Sometimes they are lipid pools of azure, others sparkling gleams of hazel, captivating shimmers of greenish-grey with flecks of brown. But at all times udderly I mean utterly captivating.

OK,
A million years ago, when I was a skinny ballerina in a class with other 20 something skinny ballerina types, we had this father that would ALWAYS insist on picking up his
kids from the class before ours.

Always.

We quickly learned
a. Tha he always spoke to our chests
b. Just to cross our arms as a group when he walked in the room.
c. Cup size has nothing to do with it.
