Now, don't get us wrong. We love Mean Girls, and we can debate all night long about why it's one of the best chick flicks ever created in the entire history of film. We will never ever get tired of quoting The Plastics and, more importantly, wearing pink on Wednesdays. But as far as the movie is concerned, there are also some things that just can't be left unsaid. So here, we set the record straight about some of Mean Girls' famous blond moments:
1. “Is butter a carb?”
For the nth time, no, it’s not. Butter is a fat, and get this - there’s actually no real evidence that fat is fattening. (This association is probably why they thought it was a carb in the first place.) In fact, a recent study published in the dailymail.co.uk claims that butter is not bad for you at all. Accordingly, those who consume eight portions of full fat dairy a day are much less likely to develop type two diabetes.
2. Being a math geek is “social suicide.”
Smart is the new sexy, so being good with numbers is the exact opposite of a social suicide. Let’s take Georgina Wilson, for example. She has a double major in accounting and finance, the perfect example of a celebrity who’s got both beauty and brains.
3. Pretending to be dumb will get guys to like you.
What’s worse than being dumb? Pretending to be dumb. We don’t know about you, but we think women who do pretty well on their own are much more attractive and impressive than damsels in distress who always count on their knights in shining armor to save the day.
4. “Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut.”
How about a big fat NO? Enough of the slutty devil, slutty cowgirl, slutty bunny, and slutty whatever! These girls only make Halloween sound so tacky. So this year, do yourself a favor and bury those hideous costumes six feet under.
5. “Homeschooled kids are freaks.”
We’ll give you names of people who you probably didn’t think were homeschooled—Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Chloe Moretz. These are girls who started earning millions of dollars at such a young age. Are they so uncool? We think not.
6. Fishing for compliments is cute.
Um, no. It’s actually quite annoying. Just. Stop.
