LOL forever at this article on The Cut. I know that at the end I’m supposed to feel maybe some compassion for her because now that she’s old and normal looking she feels she has no value...but...I’m not that person. So I’ll keep chuckling about how you were excluded from parties because you thought other women were jealous of your beauty.
When I do the whole makeup, eyelashes, high heels, gown look I am very intimidating.
My looks definitely opened doors for me...I’d get the job above other candidates because of the way I look.
One of the worst things about being beautiful is that other women absolutely despise you. (could be it’s just that you suck?)
I talked to some of my superiors about it and they put it to me straight: Look, it’s pure unmitigated jealousy. They really do hate you because of the way you look.
Later, after I married another man, I went through hell with my sister-in-law. She still doesn’t invite me on family vacations, she’s blocked me on Facebook.
Men were more loyal friends...My closest friend was a gay man, he wasn’t jealous and he didn’t want to get laid.
I never had any trouble getting guys
These days, since I have aged, when I don’t wear makeup and I gain a bit of weight (which happens often) I pass as normal. (THE HORROR)
Even my young-adult sons ignore me.
But as far as the world is concerned? I’ve lost all my value.
