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.
