WTF Wednesday

Oh Samantha, what have you done?

How dare you reveal the hardships that we beautiful women face?  As a fellow beautiful woman, I am outraged that I will now be pitied by so many of the average and less appealing women.  I am most likely going to be overwhelmed with condolences because of my beauty persecution.

I’m 100% bullshitting all of you.  If you have no idea what I’m talking about, there has been an online desecration from Samantha Brick’s article, ‘There are downsides to looking this pretty’:  Why women hate me for being beautiful.  I read Samantha’s article this afternoon after seeing a link on the Tosh.0 blog – that is where I get all my up to date and important news.  In short, Ms. Brick talks about all of the problems she has had being, what she considers, a very attractive woman.  The one that stood out the most was that she had never been asked to be a bridesmaid because in her mind, her beauty would upstage the bride’s.

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that Samantha is probably just a bit too into her looks and was too busy looking in a mirror instead of being a friend.  I’m not going to to give my opinion of Samantha’s looks because it’s irrelevant and because there are thousands of other people commenting on her appearance.  As you might expect, there are some harsh criticisms.

I’m not sure what possessed Samantha Brick to write such an article and think that it wouldn’t be condemned by the masses.  Or her publisher, editor or whomever (I don’t know how these things work) thought it was a good idea.  On the one hand, the hits on the MailOnline website are probably close to blowing up the server, but at what cost, MailOnline?  At what cost?

Wouldn’t it be a hoot if Samantha and MailOnline came out and said it was a big ol’ joke and they had some meaning behind releasing such an obviously ludicrous article?

I’ll say this, I am all for having a healthy and positive opinion of yourself.  Nothing is worse than being around someone who is constantly whining about their weight or their looks.  Sure we all have our “ugly” days, but we should also strive to be happy with what we see in the mirror everyday.  If you find yourself singing LFMAO’s,I’m Sexy And I Know It, with a little too much conviction, well, you may need to take it down a notch at the risk of being ousted by the rest of us.

To sum up, Samantha, WTF?

When I first posted this picture on Facebook, someone commented "That is not the most attractive picture of you." Thanks for the heads up, but I like this picture because it reminds me of how many times it took my friend, Amber, to take it to get it just right. And since we were just coming off of a wine cruise, I can't remember why I was so adamant that she take it.
