Study: Blondes Have Higher IQs

Good looks and higher IQs, this ought to rustle some SJW jimmies...

From The Telegraph:
Blondes are not dumb after all, researchers have claimed, as they revealed they have a slightly higher IQ than brunettes.

A new study found blondes had an average IQ of 103.2, compared to 102.7 for those with brown hair, 101.2 for those with red hair and 100.5 for those with black hair.

They were slightly more likely to be in the highest category, and slightly less likely to be in the lowest.

Marilyn Monroe perfected the 'dumb blonde' in films like Some Like It Hot and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

But Jay Zagorsky, professor of economics at Ohio State University, said although it may seem harmless, it has done women no good.

He explained: "Research shows stereotypes often have an impact on hiring, promotions and other social experiences.

"This study provides compelling evidence there should not be any discrimination against blondes based on their intelligence."

Blondes have long been the butt of jokes for their supposed lack of intelligence but the study of 10,878 American baby boomers found this is simply wrong.

Prof Zagorsky said their average IQ was actually slightly higher than those with other hair colours, but that finding was not "statistically significant".

He said: : "I don't think you can say with certainty blondes are smarter than others, but you can definitely say they are not any dumber."

The overall message was white women whose natural colour was blonde had an average IQ within three points of brunettes and those with red or black hair.

The results for men were similar - blonds also had IQs roughly equal to their counterparts with locks of other hues.
