Too Beautiful? by Loretto on 5 April 2012 12:53pm
 
She was mentioned on the news yesterday and today, Samantha Brick, and I just had to read the piece she wrote about being too beautiful.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2124246/Samantha-Brick-downsides-looking-pretty-Why-women-hate-beautiful.html?ito=feeds-newsxml

Here's news for Samantha: Get over yourself! Seriously.

The Guardian's Hadley Freeman writes about the article and The Daily Mail's use of women writers and readers...

"The paper uses its female writers as Trojan horses to voice its most misogynistic attitudes, whether its having them embody the worst kind of female stereotypes"

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/apr/04/samantha-brick-thrown-to-wolves

Sad thing is The Daily Mail in a follow up piece spent more time talking about the number of tweets and hits that Brick's piece got over the last two days, so yeah, Brick is delusional and The Daily Mail made money on her.

I only read the follow up article but I'll now read the original on your link. Have you seen the woman's pic ? It surely must be a wind up. No one can be that deluded. Even Spursfan and darling kazzzz are better looking and a certain wee Irishwoman has far better legs. :)

I just read it. Oh dear. It was so boring that I found it difficult to get to the end. Surely no one can be so vacuous ? It's the kind of thing that men just laugh off but women seem to get offended by her shite. Mission accomplished by her.

Thanks for the legs compliment...they get me from A to B at least and I grew them meself!

You'll have a great laugh at Tim Dowling's satirical piece on The Guardian about Samantha Brick's article.

How can she possibly be serious about her good looks? The comments on twitter and after the article are unbelievable and absolutely mean, but she set herself up for it. The pictures of her posing though are fantastic.

There was a similar court case here in the states where a woman sued her former employer because she believed she got fired because she was too beautiful and a distraction in the office. Maybe these women cause hate filled rants because they are just gits?

She was on 'This Morning', a magazine type TV programme, today. Viewers comments were mostly that she was too arrogant, and should as you say, 'get over herself'. She countered that they were mistaking 'arrogance' for 'confidence'. Pah!

To be honest she doesn't look anything special. Attractive yes, but not exceptionally so. She just looked normal to me, she wouldn't turn heads in my opinion.

And to say women hate her because they are jealous, oh good grief !!

The poor woman, what a cross to bear. What a silly git. And speaking of silly gits, check your emails you silly Scottish git.

You must identify with her 'gorgeous one'.
What a cross you have to bear. I know the feeling. ;)

I'm just about to check my emails in the hope that the long promised pic of you in a bikini is there. :)

Such a lovely email Karen and the pics of you and the girls are beautiful. I'm proud of you. :)
