This is hilarious.

And it is not just jealous wives who have frozen me out of their lives. Insecure female bosses have also barred me from promotions at work.

And most poignantly of all, not one girlfriend has ever asked me to be her bridesmaid.

I don’t drink or smoke, I work out, even when I don’t feel like it, and very rarely succumb to chocolate. Unfortunately women find nothing more annoying than someone else being the most attractive girl in a room.

So now I’m 41 and probably one of very few women entering her fifth decade welcoming the decline of my looks. I can’t wait for the wrinkles and the grey hair that will help me blend into the background.

Perhaps then the sisterhood will finally stop judging me so harshly on what I look like, and instead accept me for who I am.

While I've been shocked and hurt by the global condemnation, I have just this to say: my detractors have simply proved my point. Their level of anger only underlines that no one in this world is more reviled than a pretty woman.
Until this week I never really understood the term 'Trolling' — used to describe when anonymous people viciously attack others on the internet. Now I do!

While I was tearfully dealing with the emails and calls outside the supermarket, a young man approached me, offered to park my car and even get me a coffee.

He could see I was having a tough time — and yes, my looks had helped me out again.

I know women reading this will think I deserve to be attacked again. But why should I be? Yes, I'm a good-looking woman — albeit one that has feelings, too.

GO READ THE HILARITY.

I can't figure out if she's a really good troll or just a bit of a cunt. What do you think?

Why do I always forget to change it to Off-Topic?

Yeah, I actully saw the paper headline on my my to work this morning. "My backlash against being beautiful", or something similar.

#3 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3050 posts) -

What-fucking-ever.

#4 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8698 posts) -

I saw this in the morning paper when I went out for groceries, I laughed and threw it in the garbage bin.
 
Get the fuck out.

The funny part is how she's not attractive. If I passed her in the street I wouldn't look twice. I hear a lot about British women but I've definitely seen plenty hotter than her.

Fuck me, conceited much?

She's like a 5, for a start.

#8 Posted by TruthTellah (8826 posts) -

I don't agree with people attacking her and it's certainly true that many women are treated worse by other women due to perceptions of them being more attractive, but then, I don't really agree that being physically beautiful(or in this case, self-perceived as more attractive than others around her) entitles her to feel greatly victimized and make broad assumptions about the general population. She certainly comes off as conceited, and while I believe there is a real basis for the main thrust of what she's saying(people are often treated poorly for being different, even if that difference is a perceived good), she does a poor job of presenting that view.

I dislike people lashing out at her and talking about how she's ugly and stupid though. That doesn't really reinforce her point, but it does reinforce that people relish saying horrible things about other people whenever given the opportunity to do so while still feeling morally superior. In the end, that's the ugliest thing I'm seeing in all of this.

Oh my GOD the pictures.

Intentional or not, this is one of the greatest recorded trollings.

Isn't the Daily Mail just a tabloid?

Woah, I thought she was over-estimating her own attractiveness, but that's a bit rough. Unless you guys are total studs and comparing her relative to yourselves.

#14 Posted by kristov_romanov (458 posts) -

I guess different places have different standards for beauty......

or something.

I really hope for her that she is just great at trolling.

#15 Posted by Onno10 (405 posts) -

well, maybe she was hot like 10 years ago?

#16 Posted by Winternet (8014 posts) -

This was on someone's twitter hours ago. Late to the party.

You should know by now that -all- Duders are shockingly handsome studs with the highest of personal standards, both morally and romantically. :|

It is clearly a stunt for traffic. Why is everyone on twitter getting so riled up about it?

I'm guessing you didn't check out the article. Her surname fits her face.

It's always amused me how some of the UK's newspapers are just tabloids.

#30 Posted by donkeyscrotes (69 posts) -

The Daily Mail are just being sensational as always. This article explains the kind of editing they do to these type of features to make them come out as ridiculous as they tend to be:

Also, if you want to really delve into the black hole of social ineptitude, may i recommend Liz Jones.

It's the Daily Mail, this is sadly the kind of thing that's to be expected of them. They don't deserve the traffic.

In much the same way that I don't have to be a game designer to know a game is shit, I really don't have to be Fabio, The Most Beautiful Man In The Cosmos to acknowledge she's isn't all that nice to look at.

She's a 5?  
According to gaming forums that means she's a terrible mess of a person and should be burned for even being alive because she is the worst thing to happen to the planet.  
Now I only need to find out what needs to be done when it's a score between 1 and 4
#34 Posted by believer258 (11808 posts) -

...nope. She looks like my American Constitution teacher in a good number of those pictures, which instantly made me grimace.

I'd definitely just pass her over without a single thought if I were looking for a girlfriend and I was 40 years old.

#35 Posted by UncleClassy (405 posts) -

The UK must be full of some pretty fugly women if she's used to being the most attractive in the room.

#36 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

Not hot.

#37 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

Who the hell is she, and will the answer actually lessen my feelings about her being a delusional, stuck-up bitch?

Because people are stupid and follow whatever the latest celebrity or poorly crafted video tells them to. Hey guys, hate Joseph Kony! Oh wait, it's a week later, no one gives a fuck.

Are you using the 5 scale or the full 10?

#40 Edited by Red (5995 posts) -

I've decided there's no small demographic I hate more than 40 year old blonde "reporters".

#41 Posted by jking47 (1210 posts) -

She is not even that hot....

#42 Posted by Animasta (14675 posts) -

gendered insults are not cool, yeah when Vinny said cunt it was funny but come on

also lot of PUA motherfuckers in this thread apparently

#43 Posted by PrivateIronTFU (3874 posts) -

Really, people? You're really gonna rate this woman on a scale of 1 to 10? When most of the commenters here are probably 4's on a good day.

The end. Sadly of course..

#45 Posted by Akrid (1356 posts) -

This is a nice compliment to that article. Really brings her psychological damage into the limelight.

I ain't no doctor, but it seems like she should be malnourished, having that anorexic mindset.

#46 Posted by Xeiphyer (5602 posts) -

She has a Bowser nose.

She's not that hot at all.

And an end. The fact that she's nothing special makes everything else she's talking about a moot point. Even of she was attractive, making this kind of article would only make her in attractive.
