The internet is full of jerks. No story can be posted without a comment or two from mental defectives hoping to make themselves look cool. It’s like being on the elementary school playground, the only difference being that MOST, not ALL of the bullies still live in their parents’ house.
While every post is subject to scrutiny by a variety of people who, for some reason, think they are God’s gift to mankind, there are some that receive far too much abuse. The latest of these is an article written by British columnist and renowned hot and saucy lady, Samantha Brick.
In an editorial for the Daily Mail, a British tabloid founded by my favorite tabloid tycoon, Lord Northcliffe, Brick took a step of bravery. Many women would be afraid to talk about what she had the courage to say, let alone write it inBritain’s second most popular newspaper. Brick, though, threw social taboos out the window and made sure her voice was heard.
Brick made sure everyone knew she was beautiful.
In “There are Downsides to Looking This Pretty: Why Women Hate Me For Being Beautiful,” Brick finally brought to light the terrible life that attractive people have to endure. As a tall, blonde, Caucasian woman, Brick has dealt with the harshest of oppressions that any group in the history of mankind has ever faced.*
Now, the internet hobgoblins have set their sights on Brick. They are saying things like “that’s very conceited of you, Ms. Brick” and “Maybe the reason women hate you has more to do with the fact that you tell them you are more beautiful than them.”
What a bunch of buttheads.
While everyone else in the world is ridiculing Brick, I have her back. She spoke out for a group that, by all accounts, has never been represented fairly. The attractive are always disrespected.
I should know. I, myself, have been hated for my beauty.
As the most attractive person I know, life has never been easy. Throughout my high school and college years, I constantly found myself dateless while many of my friends had dates. Some people would try to tell me it was because of my “terrible personality” or “lack of personal hygiene,” but I knew the real reason. How can you possibly try to date someone who looks like the love child between James Dean and Ryan Gosling? You will constantly feel inferior.
In college, I remember receiving a low-grade on an Ethics paper that I was sure I had nailed. It was perfect, but instead of the 100% and a note praising my knowledge of all things ethical, I found myself with a C. Obviously, that C stood for “catastrophically attractive.” If only my teachers hadn’t hated my unparalleled beauty, I would have had a perfect 4.0.
I have never even attempted to talk my way out of a speeding ticket. It would be a waste of time. Between the sparkle in my eye and the light bouncing off of my perfectly white teeth, the police officer would be so annoyed at my physical perfection that I would be charged with obstruction of justice. He would probably tase me too, unaware that convulsions only make me hotter.
In the past, I would have been afraid to say all of this. I would have stayed in the super-hot guy closet, hiding behind a fitted cardigan and wishing that the world would all go blind so I could live my life like a normal uggo would. Those days are behind me, though, thanks to the bravery of Samantha Brick.
So Brick, stand tall. People may be saying nasty things to you. You may be ridiculed on every blog across the globe and may be a trending hashtag on Twitter. You may be called all kinds of names like conceited, self-important, proud, vain, smug, arrogant, high and mighty, stuck up, or snobbish.
That’s just because people hate you for being the ideal human form. There’s not much you can do about that aside from drastic plastic surgery. If it came to that, you would probably “accidentally” die on the operating room table.
Even plastic surgeons will hate someone who is too beautiful.
