Skip to comments.Boobs And Brains Not Mutually Exclusive

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.
Our double-D daughter found out early that most men assumed she was:
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 Monica!
lets clear up some notions - they aint boobs, theyre udders.....and those brains, were likely the result of "favors" received
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.
Someone had to do it.
Having said that, how about that Monica? Don't let anybody tell you that lady doesn't know how to use her head!
Post of the year!!!!! kudos..
the best thing you can do is ask "What color are my eyes?"
She went to college in England, like Clinton.
Anyone else see unresolved issues here?
'Boobs' in the title of a thread is an automatic 500+ views
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.
And you just had to be the one!
Um, whose head?
The 'great' question of our time!
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!)

Not even close ;)
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.
I was a boobist before boobism was cool!
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.
[SIGH] Tell me more...please...
lol. Seeing as how it's already up to 980 views, I think I was way too conservative.
that would be "limpid".
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.
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.
the best thing you can do is ask "What color are my eyes?"
Oh sure, discriminate against the 1 in 5 men who are color blind. :)
