Do Larger Breasts Equal Lower Grades?

Do Larger Breasts Equal Lower Grades? Online Voters Say 'Yes'

An unscientific survey on a popular Web site suggests that stereotypical beliefs about women hold true in 2006, at least among Internet surfers.

WhatsMyImage.com allows members to view photos of complete strangers and then make guesses about the details of their private lives.

The Web site analyzed hundreds of votes that had been cast since May and found that there was a very strong correlation between female bra size and perceived grade point average.

On average, voters guessed that "A-cup" students had GPAs that were 0.3 points higher than those of "D-cup" students.

"B-cup" and "C-cup" students were voted to have GPAs in the middle of that range, each averaging about 0.2 points higher than the "D-cup" group.

The study also found a correlation between race and grades. Specifically, voters guessed that Asian students had higher GPAs than their Caucasian and African-American counterparts by an average of more than 0.2 points (on a 4.0 scale).

The site's founders warned against interpreting the results of their survey as anything but entertainment.

"We have no reason to believe that there is an actual link between any of these attributes and grade point average," said WhatsMyImage.com co-founder Sameer Shariff. "This analysis simply suggests that our voters may subscribe to the stereotypes reflected in its results."

wouldnt the girls with big boobs get good grades from the male teachers anyway?

Grades dont necessarily have a direct correlation to intelligence

What about girls with big butts??

I wish I could say I find this 100% amusing but think of the implications of people who do hiring holding views like this.

The girls with the big boobs are out taking part in wet t-shirt contests and similar activities rather than studying, thus lowering their GPAs.

I have a B cup and I had a 4.0 in high school and I currently maintain a 4.0 in college. This is just more sterotypical crap.

It pisses me off, too Verte, even though I understand it's suppose to be taken lightly.

They're just pointing out the stereotypes that still exist not that there is any correlation.

Because there is not any truth to that!

maybe people thinks that if you have big boobs you have more fun and then, less time to study ...
and about the races... maybe it has to do a lot with the idea of the oriental discipline and the education system in countries like japan.

there's obviously no correlation, so I wonder why such a stereotype even exists. I guess for the same reason it is believed guys think with their anatomy

Haven't you noticed an obsessional pattern?

Is there any correlation between grades and, um, size for men?
