Gergesa: NetOwl: Do you know what is more difficult than being pretty? Being ugly. If you think people don't take you seriously when you look good, well, try disfiguring your face. See how many people take you seriously then.This. I think there have been a few articles about how ugly people generally have much more difficulty in life than attractive people.
theusercomponent: Obviously she is such a genius that she can't tell the difference between somebody sincerely treating her well and a guy on his best behavior to get at the goodies.
randomjsa: If she complained once and let it drop then nobody would have cared.
randomjsa: Sounds like Rebecca Watson.If you can't be bothered to look her up then this would be the woman who basically howled on and on about misogyny because somebody had the audacity to ask her up their room for coffee on an elevator.
NetOwl: As a supremely ugly person (not fat-ugly, which can be fixed, but ugly-faced, which cannot be fixed), I have no sympathy for people like this.Do you know what is more difficult than being pretty? Being ugly. If you think people don't take you seriously when you look good, well, try disfiguring your face. See how many people take you seriously then.Have you ever read one of those "Men's Rights" screeds about how male privilege doesn't exist? Your letter reads just like those.
Egalitarian: Men Guys and Bros tend to see women as symbols and not as real human beings, the more so when good looks are in play.

Hermione_Granger: WhiskeyBoy: Dammit. That should have read "White-hating misandrist racist". My hands got ahead of my brain while typing.Though, I could probably argue the misogyny angle pretty easily as well.It's ok. It's easy to confuse someone pointing out bad behavior with actually being the one to perpetuate that bad behavior. Kind of like police who blame the people in the bank for not stopping the bank robber.But I'm not the Patty Hurst of misogyny and racism. Pointing it out does not mean I'm joining in or makes me the prime suspect.That's your own bias talking and it's fairly common. No YOU must hate white people....because you felt discriminated against. No YOU must hate men...because a lot of men's attitudes about women belong in the dark ages.See, it must be me. Because otherwise you'd have to examine your own issues far too closely for your comfort. It's much easier just to blame me and make me out to be a biatch for daring to say anything at all.
BraveNewCheneyWorld: Hermione_Granger: I find it as hard to explain misogyny to men as it is to explain racism to white people.You're just obsessed with seeing yourself as a victim, aren't you? The funny thing is that I know a black woman who is the diametric opposite of how you portray yourself, so at least someone is out there undoing the damage you cause.
fireclown: Ye Gods, I'm glad I am not a woman. It sounds very complicated.
Hermione_Granger: I could only explain that stripping a woman down to how she looks - despite her intellect, ambitions, accomplishments, her being - kind of makes you a jerk. She's more than just a pretty face, she's a human being. You're being rude and she's right to be offended.

Occam's Disposable Razor: I'm a 5'11" man who weighs 190. A good bit of that is muscle, but I constantly fight not to eat the stuff I want and would like to lose 10 pounds or so. The women pictured can't be that heavy. A 5'2" woman at 190 is very obese, nearly "morbidly" so. That's a medical definition, not just being a dick.

See how many people take you seriously then.This. I think there have been a few articles about how ugly people generally have much more difficulty in life than attractive people.I'm an ugly woman, and I wasted way too much time thinking that if I was attractive it would solve all my problems, but I've since seen so many men treat beautiful women like raw sewage while at the same time feeling conflicted about their overwhelming attraction to said women, that I don't entirely envy them.My perfect world would be to have the ability to switch it on and off for about an hour a week. Otherwise, I prefer living life being invisible to most men. It's worth the absence of harassment and sexual assault. Being stared at is definitely a form of harrassment. Men have a very hard time understanding that, but a lot of those same men are also very skittish and defensive if they are forced to interact with women they consider repulsive.
Ihaveanevilparrot: poison_amy: In the grand scheme of fatness, sixty pounds isn't THAT muchI didn't see the 60 lb part. That is not big enough to completely eliminate your chance for finding any guy other than feeder fetishists.Say she's 5'3" which is a little under average height. For an adult woman of that height 130 is a fairly healthy weight - a little over what would be optimal. So 60 lbs would make her 190. Realistically she probably started skinnier than that and doesn't even weigh 190 if she's gained 60 lbs, but I'm erring on the upper side.This is 5'3" 190, and a woman that actually works out and lifts a little weight would look smaller and more toned. At 5'2" and 190 I'm built about like the 2nd pic, and people also tend to under-guess my weight cuz I'm still active and have muscle tone.http://www.cockeyed.com/photos/bodies/503-190.html
bibli0phile: You all realize this article is 8 years old right?
Chevello: I May Be Crazy But...: Same here. I'm just so sexy that hot women randomly throw their panties at me while I'm walking down the street. It's terrible.How does your wife, Morgan Fairchild, feel about that?

show me: Pics or GTFO.
Adolf Oliver Nipples: Unless her name is Marla Hanson she's full of shiat. The world is full of people that have nothing at all going for them, and if we take her at her word she's beautiful AND smart (I read the farking article)? She can shut up and die. Her problems are all her own.
