She explains that in a attempt to keep her brunette daughter from believing “that blond hair is somehow better,” she refers to blondies as “yellow.”
“Let’s talk about the hair. Why do I call it ‘yellow’ hair and not ‘blond’ hair? Because I’m pretty sure everybody calls my hair ‘brown,”‘ Fey writes. “When I read fairy tales to my daughter, I always change the word ‘blond’ to ‘yellow,’ because I don’t want her to think that blond hair is somehow better.”
GQ writer Dan Fierman questions Tina about her ideals, asking:
Dan: “My son’s blond. Is he superior, or do you have to be a girl for that magic to happen?”
Tina: “Oh, it still carries some weight. I think yeah. I wouldn’t even bother with him — he’ll be fine. What color are his eyes?”
Tina: “Don’t even teach him to read,” she joked.
