There’s nothing wrong with a little bit of girl power! I’m all up for woman feeling confident about their appearence and what they do. Heck, I border on being a feminist sometimes but this is far too far! You must have all heard of this but if not, Samantha Brick, apparenly a journalist, posted an article a few days ago in which she argued that beautiful people had life so hard because all her friends thought that she was going to run off with their husbands! And how she was always getting noticed she went as far to say that “Throughout my adult life I’ve had bottles of bubbly or wine sent to my restaurant table by men I don’t know”. Ok, tad bit arrogant there, but we’ll get over it if it’s true, it’s her next statement which really sets into stone what kind of woman she really is. “Whenever I ask what I have done to deserve such treatment, the donors of these gifts have always said the same thing: my pleasing appearence and pretty smile made their day”. Need I say more, reader?
I would like to make the point that women would only be worried (and this applies with any woman, not just a beautiful one) that their husband or boyfriend are going to run off with another woman if the other woman if constantly flirting with them and the man flirts back. A beautiful girl wondering by does not make them instantly paranoid. Ok? So the statement “women hate me for no other reason than my lovely looks” is actually quite offensive. It kind of portrays the idea that us women only judge on looks and can’t actually work out if we like someone’s personality. We are all at some “beautiful” girl’s mercy! I personally don’t dislike her because she is pretty but because she is outrageously arrogant! I’m sure I’m not on my own on this matter.
Raising the point, who actually are her friends?! Never once have I worried that my boyfriend is going to leave me for someone else, never mind friends! Men can think for themselves…believe it or not! Obviously you’re doing more than just look at these men if their wives think you’re a threat! Also the amount of faff which would be involved…her divorcing her husband to run off with the other husband who has to divorce her wife…is it really going to happen? Samantha, there is something called trust and love. Trusting the other person not to! And if you’re really in love than the appearencce of someone else won’t make a difference to your relationship. Why does she think that people in a relationship are constantly looking for someone better, looks-wise. Perhaps they actually like the person! I am a firm believer that once you fancy someone they just look attractive because you like them in that way. It’s hard to describe, but ‘in love’ the other person will always find them attractive!
I was watching her on the TV today and she said that she sticks by what she said as some people have emailed her and told her that it’s the story of her life. Probably one other person but moving on! She said that the amount of criticism she has got shows people agree but does it really? I can fully assure you I don’t dislike people who are attractive, I might if they were flirting with my boyfriend and he was taking notice but that’s completely unlikely. Do you know what I mean? Some woman’s looks don’t really mean anything to mean, it’s not as though I am going to fancy her!
Furthermore when you post an article like this you also draw attention to your looks and I would like to point out she is even that attractive! Sure she has nice hair but if you see her talk, you’ll see her teeth are pretty horrible, I know that’s mean but she must be up for this! It was awkward when they had a pshychologist on with her and she was more attractive. Just think before you speak Samantha because this was a silly argument to be having!
