Iris Mulej

One of my main irritations with claims about the objectification of women is that they are often based in the very sexism they claim to oppose. Take the case of Iris Mulej, for example. Why shouldn't a model have an IQ of 156? Alternatively, why should someone with an IQ of 156 not earn a living as a model? It looks a lot better than academia (though it is easy to romanticize the employment of others).

A Slovenian TV programme that tried to prove top models were brainless bimbos was scrapped after an ex-Miss Universe turned out to have a higher IQ than a nuclear physicist. Iris Mulej, better known for her comments about group sex, was found to have an IQ of 156 by scientists working for the programme makers.
