If You've Ever Had Someone Judge You Based On Your Boob Size, This One Is For You

Maybe it's just me, but I thought your boob size only indicated how big your boobs were.

Actually, no.

Yet, people seem to think that women with small breasts are more likely to be hard-working, moral, and modest, while women with large breasts are more likely to be popular and sexually attractive. That's not awful, but breast size is also often associated with intelligence. Specifically, smart girls have small boobs and dumb girls have big boobs.

Surprise! Breast size is not actually correlated with any of these traits.

If you're making assumptions about who people are based on what they look like, stop. Seriously, stop.

But you don't have to take my word for it — or the word of the Cultural Encyclopedia of the Breast (which is a real thing). Here are a bunch of stories of real women who were treated like they were dumb solely based on their cup size.

For the first time in its 56-year history, Sports Illustrated will feature a transgender model on its glossy cover. 23-year-old Brazilian model Valentina Sampaio will appear in the July issue, which hits stands early next week. Sampaio wrote on Instagram that she was "excited and honored" to be part of such an iconic issue, adding: "The team at SI has created yet another groundbreaking issue by bringing together a diverse set of multitalented, beautiful women in a creative and dignified way."

A native of Fortaleza, a city in northeastern Brazil, Sampaio has been making history in the fashion world in recent years. She was already the first trans model to make the 2017 cover of Vogue Paris. Scouted while she was a young teen, she quickly made her way onto key runways in her home country. She managed to make an impression in a short time— launching her career at 18 years old—as L'Oréal Paris's first trans model. She hit another milestone last year, when she was the face of Victoria's Secret campaign, breaking barriers as the first trans woman working with the brand.
