I confess, I started life as a true blonde, blue eyes and all, and darkened to dishwater blonde as an adult. So now I'm one of those bottle blondes you are so angry with. Can't say that I blame you. They've done true blondes a major disservice.

 My son was a white blonde child, and he's darkening as an adult. He bleaches too. My Daughter is a dark brunette. She feels cheated she didn't get my blonde childhood color.

 My inlaws are fond of telling me blond jokes, which makes my blood boil. I may not meet your definition of a true blonde, but I too am angry with the abuse Blondes tolerate. Maybe the dark haired all still fear the power and intelligence of the blonde scientists, statesmen and soldiers. Maybe they should.  Mary Miner
