This sort of thing –wherein some young lass writes an article on the internet lamenting how difficult it is to be an attractive female— makes me laugh so hard. I wrote a thing about this last year, in response to the incomparable Samantha Brick. God bless you, ye poor tragic beauties!

  • Katie says:

    “Be you wearing a full hijab, morbidly obese or fifty years old…” Ewwww…FIFTY? So gross.

    • Also the phrase “Be you [lists apparently deal-killing traits].” For a second I thought she was suggesting that people just be themselves whatever their circumstances, but then I realized that nope, that’s just her being too pretty for grammar/homophones. Correct words are for the uglies to worry about!

      Be you wearing a full hijab, morbidly obese or fifty years old, if you’re female, something similar has happened to you…but all these memories cement the disconcerting and warped self-worthiness: I am what society deems just another ‘pretty girl’. And just in case you didn’t know — a ‘pretty girl’ is a mythical entity without feelings or a name, you can call entire swarms of people under this term — accept they are not seen as people. Which is why, I hate being a pretty girl.
