Do you know what Bimbo means?
Here is what the dictionary has to say
bimbo |?bimb?| (also bimbette |bim?bet|)
noun ( pl. -bos) informal
an attractive but empty-headed young woman, esp. one perceived as a willing sex object.
ORIGIN early 20th cent. (originally in the sense [fellow, man] ): from Italian, literally ‘little child.’
So it follows that she (the bimbo) has to be pretty, kinda dumb, loves sex, is childish and so can be put down ……
Given that the world is an increasingly rough place to survive in, I doubt if a bimbo (in its pure form) exists – apart from in the mind of men (where a lot of other mythical creatures like adult women with Barbie like physical attributes/hostel full of lesbian women who are willing to enact H.L.A. action for their viewing pleasure/women who cook like Mommy and are willing to marry them/female bosses who are willing to trade promotions for sexual favours etc etc exist)
So what does the media and other platforms do? They get us to make fun of sexy women so as to diminish them in our eyes, and make us trivialize our cerebral powers too.
And dammit we fall for it each and every time ….
Name: Reema Lamba
Image : Hot and sexy (with no reference to brain power). Actually studied in prestigious DPS Mathura Road, and has a degree in Indian Philosophy from Miranda House, Delhi University.
Do you know what the cut-off for North Campus and especially Miranda House is????
Further consider this – she was married, divorced and then came into movies or rather started as an item girl and model. Did some hit movies, some flops, worked with Jackie Chan, Abhishek Bacchhan, is currently working in a Hollywood movie. She is one of the highest paid item girls, charging 1.5 crore for one song! Bimbo??? I think not! She fooled us with her well maintained bust line!
We make the same mistake with other women, you know. Think Monika Lewinsky, Pamela Bordes, Helen (dancer of yester years) ….
We get dazzled by the cover, the well packaged exterior and wanna pretend that the ladies slept their way to the top. Admitted that it may have had a certain role to play
But that is not all
These women have street smarts and more than their share of grey cells, and use them without hesitation
I recently met Ms. Lamba’s ex hubby and started reading up on her …
What ? She a bimbo? Naah, though she sure as hell packaged herself as one to get to where she is ..
No one’s gonna pay me 1.5 crores for a song dammit!
