Hi All,

Hope you are all keeping very well!

Why is it that the majority of people associate a woman with large breasts with being a little bit ''dumb'', especially in the modelling world?

If a woman is super skinny, with a flat chest, she is often regarded as chic, serious and intellectually superior, yet if you have been ''blessed'' with a larger decolletage, it is more often regarded as either you are ''matronly'' or not of the sharpest intellect. It seems that many people equate the larger the boobs, the smaller the brain!

Have a lovely remainder of the day.

Kindest of Regards xxxx

Can't say I've really encountered that. The people that think I'm dumb usually think so because I'm a model in general, not because of my bra size.

It seems you've been having a lot of boob problems lately. yikes

This reminds me... someone mentioned in another thread that guys would associate large boobs with being a slut as well.  Ignorance is inevitable!

You asked.

The logic goes: More physical assets one can rely on, the less one has to rely on (or develop) the mental assets.

While I've seen plenty of examples of this, I've seen enough exceptions to know it's a dangerous assumption to make.

Part of the problem is probably 'dumb' girls wanting (and paying for) large boobs.

Last evening I again shot a 5'10" blond with D cup breasts blessed with a gorgeous face who is an exceedingly astute financial planner.  She is a very bright and interesting lady, married and a mother of two.  My experience over the years is that cup size and other physical characteristics come in all different intelligence levels.  I prefer intelligent models as they tend to be more creative, interesting and have better ideas.

Actually I've seen plenty of examples of boobs and intelligence.... and the exceptions are the dumb ones.

When you see 16 year old girls with perfectly normal breast, wanting breast implants, then IMO it is not unreasonable to label them as dumb.

You're absolutely right. Latest studies have uncovered the brain-boob equilibrium constant BBEC, which declares an inverse relationship between these two organs. Big boobs suck the brains out.

Yes, the brain-penis equilibrium constant has also been discovered, however they have a direct relationship. Big dicks are brainy.

Exceptions prove the rule.

I seem to think the opposite although I try not to have an opinion based on it at all.

I prefer to think large breasted women are like we are because we store more additional brain cells inside of our chest.

Most (not all) extremely small chested models I've dealt with have been airheads.

EDIT* Sorry for the revival.. too funny to see die.
But then there's stupid people from all shapes sizes colors and threads, especially threads.

I'm sorry, did you say something?  Bah, it probably wasn't important.  I'll just keep staring at your cleavage and assume you're not very bright because I'm too distracted by your tits to actually pay attention to your brain.

/The above is one example of why women with large breasts might be perceived as dumb.  Men are (stereotypically) paying more attention to the tits than to the talk.  If someone is distracted by one very narrow aspect of a person, the rest of the person doesn't register.  So - people who say "women with large breasts are dumb" are really saying "when I see a woman with large breasts, all I can concentrate on are her breasts and I ignore everything else."

// I just pulled that out of my ass right now, but it seems to make sense in an ad-hoc way.

/// Having met Nemi, I know that she is anything but stupid.

Clearly the subject is important to her, probably for deeply personal reasons.  Why does she have to post about other things?  Why do so may people have to jump down her throat for talking about a subject that's important to her?

That is indeed nonsense ...

I dunno.  I'm a smart girl, I have a science degree and a large vocabulary.  Up until my mid twenties I was skinny as a rake and flat as a pancake.  I did find I was treated differently once I developed D cups and a big ol' butt.  Not necessarily as if I were stupider, but certainly more like eye candy.  it was an interesting experience.  It's even more interesting to note the differences in how people treat me now I'm smaller again, but have retained the curves ...

1) I think that it's ATTRACTIVE women with big titties (and usually blonde hair) that are widely considered stupid.
2) Super skinny frames and flat chests ARE chic. They fit into sample sizes.
3) Having big titties doesn't make one matronly. Having big MATRONLY titties makes one matronly. Perky boobs convey youth. Droopy boobs convey age.

Because it comes across as obsessive attention seeking, like a guy who always talks about the size of his tool.

Some people don't understand that it's a relatively small-ish community of people who routinely post on the message boards. When individuals post about certain topics repeatedly (like the OP with her breasts posts), the same folks are reading that topic over and over, and assume the OP is trolling. Sure, it might be important to her, but we've all read it before, so now it comes across in a different way.
