Blonde women are usually beautiful, so some people say that blondes can't have brains and beauty too. Like the previous posters say i think it has something to do with Hollywood also. Take care Jadeybabe.

I really don't know, there are many blonde women who have made a great success in life. People do tend to make fun of females more than they do males for some reason, i've never quite understood it to be honest. Sadly we live in a sexist world, that I do see changing any time soon!

I believe Hollywood has something to do with that, it is a pop-culture Stereotype. Some say it started in 1925 with Anitas Loos's novel "Gentlemen prefer blondes" later put into film staring Marilyn Monroe playting a beautiful but empty-headed blonde.
