    I don't think it's her looks that are causing her problems - it's the fact that she is quite evidently self-absorbed, conceited, vain - and, quite frankly, delusional.

    The poor wee lassie seems to be suffering from a terrible case of being 'up her own arse' - it's tragic, you know - really, we should be pitying her.

    Hmmm, then again, maybe my saying the above merely proves her point and I'm just a jealous old haridan. Yep, that'll be it.

    "In the essay, Brick describes the way men she’s never met tend to shower her with free bottles of champagne, train tickets, cab fare, drinks and flowers — while the women in her life treat her with hostility and jealousy and block her from promotions at work."

    Hmmmmm....men she has never met? How can someone she has never me pay for her cab fare? Unless she means 'never met before.' And if this is the case I would be interested on how she behaves when she meets someone. Maybe she was raised by a twisted uncle that taught her the proper way to shake hands is like Crocidile Dundee with the old lady in the 1st movie.

    Or she is lying.

    Either way, she is getting her 15 minutes.


    BTW...I don't think she is lying about the blocking her from promotions. I would bet everyone blocks her from promotions.

    That's a very curious thing to say, Wildman...Confidence and self-assurance are great attributes to have, certainly - but narcissism is quite another. How can you possibly be a loving person to others if the only one you really have time for is yourself?

    Confidence for sure, and I'll even accept a bit of arrogance. You can be both and be a loving, caring individual as well.

    Of course it can go too far, but I think even at this woman's level I'd rather hear what she is saying than all the negativity so many women place upon themselves, especially when it comes to looks and body issues.

    I'd agree that it's a matter of degree.

    Self-loathing / arrogance - both extremes, neither of which is particularly laudible.

    I'd say the same for men too, though - nothing worse than a completely self-obsessed bloke - how the hell can you get in the bathroom to use the mirror if he's always stuck in front of it, admiring himself!!!???

    LMAO!

    Yeah, there are definitely exceptions, but I see the point the woman is making with the minute a woman says that she is pretty she will be attacked. It is something I have seen occur on many, many occasions. If a guy says it, he may be called arrogant, but he'd get nowhere near the hate directed toward him that this woman has right now.
