Isn't it time to retire that pathetic old stereotype about women hating other women simply because they're beautiful?
I don't know what sort of crazy Texas cheerleader coven Samantha Brick found herself living among in the French countryside, but the rest of us left junior high behind in high school.
Or by our sophomore year in college at the very latest. That sort of 1950s era insecurity is so 2011.
Modern women are capable of judging each other by a wide range of criteria. I can't even count the number of women who have decided to hate me just because my imaginary boyfriend is a British secret agent. Or because my
life laundry seems so much more glamorous than theirs.
My point is, for Brick to suggest that she has earned the status of a woman hated by other women on the basis of looks alone simplifies the nuanced process by which such decisions are actually made.
Which is why I've created the following chart to illustrate the process.
You're welcome. -SK.
