This popped up on my Twitter feed today and it's from April, but I don't remember it being discussed. Professional troll Samantha Brick (of "it's so HARD being this beautiful!" fame) spewed more hate and bile from the already rotted and soulless mass of ugliness that is the Daily Mail. In it, she talks about how MUCH she HATES fat people. It's a truly disturbing article.
I'm surprised this was never picked apart by Jezebel. I couldn't find it searching the tags and I would have remembered it because it's ugly and awful enough to make my head explode.
In an article titled "Joan Collins is right. Any woman who wants to stay beautiful (like me!) needs to diet every day of her life!". It is, by far, one of the most shockingly hateful, disturbing, messed up things I've read lately. Holy shit, does this woman have SEVERE problems.
I am 42 years old and have been on a permanent diet for the past 30 years. The logic is simple and irrefutable: any self-respecting woman wants to be thin, and to be thin you need to spend your life on a diet.
The rambling article talks about Brick's high self esteem and her ego, as well as the shameful, hateful way she treats herself and others based on weight. It all sounds exceptionally anorexic, cruel and barbaric and she's PROUD of it. She says this is how all women should be.
For three decades, self-denial has been my best friend. And one of my biggest incentives is that I know men prefer slim women.
I have only ever dated men who kept a strict eye on my figure. My partners are not only boyfriends but weight-loss coaches.
My first love continually reminded me that one can never be too rich or too thin, and my husband of five years frequently tells me that if I put on weight he will divorce me.
What. The. Unholiest. Of. Fucks. I literally read this article with my mouth hanging open in abject SHOCK. What an awful, hateful, judgmental woman. And she's proud of her husband demanding she be thin or he'd divorce her! I can not even wrap my head around this.
She goes on to mention she subsisted on only Marmite on toast as a teenager and fainted on one occasion - but that's TOTALLY okay because she was getting so many dates! A teacher tries to help her because this is dangerous behavior, but Brick waves it off as the teacher just being jealous of how thin and beautiful she is.
She ends the horrifying article with this bon mot:
The world admonished Kate Moss for claiming that 'nothing tastes as good as skinny feels' but I'd go further. As I see it, there is nothing in life that signifies failure better than fat.
That is my face right this second. I am going to go have the BIGGEST bowl of ice cream known to man and pray the ensuing brain freeze wipes my memory of whatever the fuck it is that I just read. Holy fucking shit.
