Already read this on a site that wouldn't give traffic to the DM.

Seriously laughing my ass over it, such a stuck up, arrogant Woman. That in itself is unattractive, regardless of looks.

Is she catholic..well or christian at all? Because Pride is a cardinal Sin and all..well its vanity really but it falls under pride as well so yeah.

I'd find it utterly hilarious if that was the case to be honest. But more seriously, uh she aint pretty, she isnt ugly really but she isnt a "looker". Its not a person that turns heads or anything. She's just full of herself at this point really, yes Women usually get the jealousy and all when they do look too good by other women who dont, but i dont really believe that woman actually has that problem. She's average at best, she aint ugly nor is she basicly a supermodel.

Its really just being so full of yourself, its one thing to accept your own looks and consider yourself "pretty", but its another to flaunt what essentially amounts to a good average as the same thing. Just makes her look stupid really.

Captcha: Poetic Justice <--Wow, thats fitting.

Lolwat, this woman is like a 6 TOPS. The balls it takes to write an article like this is beyond me.

Self-confidence in how you look isn't always a bad thing, and I wish I had half of the amount she seems to have.

Sadly, arrogance and egotism seem to come with it a lot, and this woman has arrogance all over her. Personally, I don't even think she's that attractive; her smile definately looks forced. But then again, I suppose that's because of all she has to endure in her hard life isn't it? *rolls eyes*

Uhmm...I'd give her at best a 6 and thats if I'm in a good mood. The only thing pissing other women off is her attitude.

I don't see how someone could write the two articles in the OP as well as

And not expect to be lambasted as a whiny bitch.

Wow, what a thoroughly unpleasant person. Still, it's not really anything worth making a fuss about. So she's really arrogant. Big deal. She's not harming anyone except herself, seeing as she apparently doesn't have any friends.

This woman wrote an article in an English newspaper (linked below) discussing how being "beautiful" is an incredible irritating aspect to her life.

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

she is now under heavy attack, both from people saying she's arrogant, as well as people pointing out that she, at least in their opinion (and also in mine), isn't actually that pretty at all, if anything, she's fairly average looking. now defending herself, she claims that this attack "proves her point", "and that noone in the world is more reviled than a pretty woman" (her responce piece http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2124782/Samantha-Brick-says-backlash-bile-yesterdays-Daily-Mail-proves-shes-right.html)

I'd like to hear what you think; is the anger justified, can you defend her, do you think she's wrong and arrogant, or even a simple rating of her looks (she started it after all)

The second link is dead, looks like the Mail changed the address. Here's the new one:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2124782/Samantha-Brick-says-backlash-bile-yesterdays-Daily-Mail-proves-shes-right.html (It seems the same as the one you posted, but it's working on preview whereas your doesn't so iunno what the Mail are playing at)

OT: She's all right looking, not great, not terrible. I can't honestly see people seeing her as as much of a threat as she makes out though. Either her social circle is really backstabby and paranoid, or she's backstabby and paranoid (or both). If some people are that bad she should just stop associating with them.

And if she's eliciting that response from everyone, it seems likely that it's something to do with her personality.

Seems a bit dramatic and self-obsessed, given all of the bigotry on the world, to say "that noone in the world is more reviled than a pretty woman" as well. Try telling that to an Egyptian Copt or an Iranian Jew or a transsexual or [insert persecuted group].

EDIT: Just to be clear, we aren't all like this in the UK! I think she's as weird as everyone else does!

Also, here's the rest of her articles. Fucking EUCH!

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/search.html?s=&authornamef=Samantha+Brick

in fairness, I'm fairly sure that was my fault, as my closing bracket got added to the URL. Also, the rest of her articles REALLY don't raise her in my esteem.

Can you fire someone for being so blatantly sexist and manipulative? (who's a woman, whoops, drifted into bizarro land there)

If I was a boss, I'd dismiss her on principle.

BlindTom:
Stop reading the daily mail and they will stop trolling you. Every pageview is an endorsement.

But they're so funny! unintensionally so, agreed, but fucking hillarious ;)
To be clear, I don't actually read it, and only find out about the shit they write through other channels.

She's a satirist, she's trying to be funny.

She seriously wrote that? Wow. And her husband's still with her?

Melanie McGreevey:

I'd love that to be true, but looking at her responce article, as well as just the title of everything else she's ever written, unfortunately I doubt it is

See, this is satire.

http://newsthump.com/2012/04/04/samantha-brick-diary-reveals-further-anguish/

Daily Mail columnist Samantha Brick has hit the headlines again today after her secret diary was leaked on the Internet, giving further insight into the mind of a delusional narcissist.

Below are sample entries revealed to reporters by an unnamed source, which are already providing greater clarity on the thought processes of Mrs Brick.

Jan 27th and 28th: "Stopped to do my hair in the mirror before leaving for work, and before I knew it, it was Saturday."

February 2nd: "The bread is mouldy - my beauty is such that it spoils baked goods in just six days, truly this is a curse."

Yeah I know. Initially I was kind of prepared to write it of as an ignorant woman writing an innocent, if stupid and vacuous article.

But, having read some of her other articles, it seems she actually is that bad. She knows full well what she's doing and does it anyway.

I quote:

"I believe the legacy of my chubby childhood has also led me, inadvertently, to make some interesting choices about the men in my life, too.
My first husband's unwavering mantra was that a woman can never be too rich or too thin. Advice I humbly followed. My second husband claims he will divorce me if I ever become overweight. "

"I have a teenage stepson, but we don't have a sweet drawer, biscuit tin or secret food stash.
He doesn't have problems with his weight, but if he did I'd act promptly explain to him that he needed to diet.
When he has overweight friends to stay, I automatically, albeit discreetly, reduce their portion size and won't offer them dessert. I don't want them to go through what I did."

Great, pass on your mental illness to others and promote rampant sexism as acceptable behaviour. As an aside, her husband looks fairly podgy.

"Female presenters were treated like fodder and I often felt like a pimp organising lunches for my then bosses with eager, young, unknowns at the time including Kate
Thornton and Kirsty Gallacher."

Yay, perpetuate the very system you claim to hate!
Jesus Christ.

I find it strange that she claims to be the target of jealousy because she's 'good looking', yet makes herself a bigger target by writing an article of this nature.

One would assume from this;

1) She doesn't hate the attention as much as she claims
2) Her conceit is so obviously high to use herself as an example, I would hazard a guess it also manifests in daily life possibly provoking observed 'hostility'
3) Her disillusionment is of such a level that she both perceives herself as 'attractive' and simultaneously mis-perceives acts of hostility in others.

There are a few other observations I can illustrate, but these are the primary and most relevant.

I bet Ann Coulter thinks she's hated for being "pretty" to.
And never in the history of the world did anyone have a more appropriate last name.

Piracyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
The amount of ys show how serious I am.

She's incredibly vain that's for sure and more than a bit full of herself, and yeah I've seen much better looking women than her. Not that she's ugly, but I've seen better. I'd also like to point out that beauty is often in the eye of the beholder (and no, not that kind of beholder)

I needed to lie down after reading that. I just... Game Over.

It may just be me being naive but I thought even the Daily Fail couldn't get this, eurgh!

i love how she starts by pointing out how nice it is to be given things just for being pretty. i mean why would you even accept stuff like that, doesn't that in itself make her argument kinda invalid?

Matthew94:

Phasmal:
Then again I'm not your typical woman, I guess.

What would be a typical woman? Mmmm hmmm, generalisations ho!

"I'm not like most women", most women

Sorry, had to.

OT: I think she's doing alright for her age, but this was only ever going to come off condescending and self satisfied. I think that french guy's done alright for himself.

OneCatch :
*odd worshipping*

Why must you insist on giving her more attention? why insist on linking everything she's done just to go "don't bother"?

If it's not worth noticing

STOP SPREADING IT!!!

Melanie McGreevey:
She's a satirist, she's trying to be funny.

Haha, nope.

Look at the other shit she has written.

I find it funny that another one of her articles is titled, "I use my sex appeal to get ahead at work bla bla bla". If other women actually dislike her, this may be why.

Her face looks all jacked up to me, but then again I'm not English. Nevertheless, if that's what passes for attractive in the UK I need to move there and start my modeling career. I mean, I don't consider myself an attractive person, but she's barely a 4.

This may just be a pet peeve of mine, but personally I find arrogance to be the most unattractive character flaw; it truly disgusts me.

Yeah, she'd be beautiful with a bag on her head.

No thank you.

What you really mean is "no one in the world is more reviled than me", isn't it, Mrs. Brick? Take a pill.

A-D.:
Pride is a cardinal sin, after all.

Christianity promotes humility, but not false humility. Remember the story of Job? All his friends and neighbors tried to get him to apologize to God, but Job knew he hadn't sinned, so he just kept on truckin' instead of trying to deprecate himself.

I'm kind of saddened that so many people decided to take this conversation in the direction of criticizing Mrs. Brick's appearance, as if calling her an uggo is all the consideration and response she deserves. I suppose it can be argued that she brought it on herself by bringing the topic up in the first place, but I think a discussion publicly judging her attractiveness really misses the point, so all I'm going to say on the topic of how pretty she is is that it's a comparative standard, and you only have to be prettier than the person who's jealous of you for that jealousy to exist in the first place.

Personally, I'm inclined to believe that her complaint has some merit. I'm a white, straight man in America, so I should have all the benefits, right? Unfortunately, I've chosen a career path where those traits are held against me. In nursing, a field dominated widely by women, I'm ostracized, I'm denied work, and my coworkers will tell me right to my face how men don't have the emotional equipment for providing real medical care and should instead just be doctors, whom of course they consider to be arrogant know-it-alls whose only function is to get in a nurse's way while she provides the real medical care.

So yeah, I'm willing to bet that having an otherwise advantageous personal trait can be a liability a person would rather not deal with. As to whether Mrs. Bricks particular claims have any merit, well, who knows; but I find the principle sound.

What the the hell is wrong with her chin...it's all weird looking o.o

Everyone screaming that she is ugly just makes us look as dumb as her.

It's a predictable and somewhat embarrassing response, yes.

It's an understandable response though.

Even when someone is actually good enough looking for that kind of arrogant self opinion to be true, when they talk about themselves in such a way you want to slap a bit of reality into them. So when someone isn't actually all that spectacular to begin with and they think themselves the shit, well it's just asking for a 'lul wut, u horsey' response.

I mean if someone came onto these forums and didn't use punctuation, misspelled simple words, confused simple concepts and all around derped it up, then kept going on about how intelligent they were. Well you can imagine the kind of backlash they'd receive, especially if there were insulting other people in the process.

I don't see why she should escape a bit of wrath for her incredibly self absorbed world view, especially considering how inaccurate it is.

Yeah, but then you call her out on her ARROGANCE, not her looks. Getting fussed about her looks makes people sound like the looks obsessed idiots she's proclaiming them to be.

And note, I am not saying that caring about looks is silly, just that getting outraged that she's not a 10 is throwing wild punches at the wrong target.

Haha, I appreciate the sentiment. That's kind of why I quoted it instead of providing links. And I always go and annoy right wingers in the comments section to make up for the hits on the page. :P

And just to clarify, I was being sarcastic with the praise!!

But simple arrogance isn't the issue because someone can say something arrogant and it still be true.

It's a case of ill-deserved arrogance. But with the kind of self obsessed ninny she undoubtedly is, I imagine she view all criticism as 'lol haters' because it wouldn't do to shatter her own world view.

Wait she's saying SHE'S a beautiful woman? Now I don't like to judge people's looks but...no. I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder but no. There is something off about her face, the symmetry just isn't right. And her neck looks 4 years older then her face. And that smile is just fucken creepy. I'm sure their are people who think she's pretty but...from where I'm sitting no. Just...no.

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.

Are you sure it's not because they think you're not attractive?

I hate the term "first world problems", buuuuut in this case it's fair to make an exception.
