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.
NOTE: The original source includes links to relevant articles.
I guess The Stiletto is as smart as she says she is, boobs and all.
This must have been a present you bought for yourself. ;)
So did I (graduate school). What's your point?
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.
Did you graduate from near you had an affair with an older man?
It's not boobism .... it's boobslamism.
Can you repeat the question in English?
The article also uses the phrase "boob bashing" ... which reminds me to schedule a mammogram...
fairly presumptuous on yer part, ain't it?
(got me, though...)
Gosh, I hope that all made you feel better. Look, I don't have to defend my daughter to you. Her life does that itself. My wishes for a happy, healthy New Year to you.
The Washington Post writer was equating double Ds with stupidity. As in women with tits don't have wits.
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)
