Musings from Mama Bird
Apparently, the media is falling all over themselves when it comes to Samantha Brick. Personally, I never heard of her until I read this story on my homepage a few minutes ago. How did I manage to miss the viral madness that blew up earlier this month after she wrote an article titled, There are downsides to looking this pretty’: Why women hate me for being beautiful (Note to self: Log into your Twitter account…if you can remember your username and password.)
For some reason, she definitely twisted some people’s nappies in a wad by saying stuff like:
It’s hard when everyone resents you for your looks. Men think “what’s the point, she’s out of my league” and don’t ask you out. And women don’t want to hang out with someone more attractive than they are.
I find that older women are the most hostile to beautiful women — perhaps because they feel their own bloom fading.
Surely, she can’t be serious. I mean, come on. Without thinking about it, I can come up with at least twenty women who are much more beautiful than Samantha. I’m sure she can, too. And Samantha honey, let me assure you, this older woman’s bloom ain’t going anywhere. Plus, I’ve always hung out with women hotter than I, and *Bonus* when I was in college, the guys that hit on them always picked up our bar tabs.
But dang, this girl’s got some swagger, and when a sister’s got it going on like that, count me in as an admirer. Plus, can you imagine how many hits her website and column have generated? This is truly the epitome of, “There is no such thing as bad publicity except your own obituary.” I only wish I had thought of it!
So now I’m curious. Do you think Samantha Brick is a narcissistic ninny? Or is she a click-generating genius?
