If you’ve been following the saga of Catherine Clennan, the uber-special snowflake who wanted you to pay her $2 million so she could go live in California, then you’ll be interested to know that she’s now doubled down on her previous idiocy, and made a new GoFundMe campaign…in which she now says she wants $12 million. From a reader:
I want to move to San Diego from my hometown Laramie, Wyoming. I want to buy a big beautiful house on the coast and learn to surf. I want to hire staff that will cook for me, clean my house, do my laundry, and take care of my pets, so that I can be free to focus on being me.
What prompted all of this? According to her, she’s a failure. (What? You don’t say.)
I can’t seem to hold down a job. I can’t seem to graduate from college. I can’t seem to take care of myself in the traditional sense and I can’t seem to get my life figured out. For the longest time I thought there was something wrong with me because of all my epic failures.
It’s impossible for me to be who I am and at the same time live the life I want to because I just can’t fit the mold in order to take the steps required to get there.
You know, the steps like “growing up,” showing some kind of “maturity,” etc. The level of narcissism in this woman defies belief, doesn’t it? But she goes even further this time.
With your generous support I look forward to living the life I want to live.
Thank you for your time and consideration.

I have no doubt that she will become as famous as she desperately wants to be. What she needs is mental help…and for Daddy to take her computer away.
The irony is all of this isn’t that she lacks the self-awareness to realize how completely stupid she is. It’s not even that she actually expects that her story will somehow resonate with people who are struggling to pay their bills and feed their kids even AFTER they’ve actually gone to work all week. The real irony in this story is that she’s an SJW. She’s a feminist. She fancies herself to be a strong, independent woman…and yet she is asking men who have never met her and don’t know her, don’t love her, don’t have any obligation to her, to pay for her to be pampered and spoiled…because what? She’s female, and she thinks she deserves it.
Not only is she setting back actual women’s rights by about 50 years, her entire campaign is a slap in the face of every actual strong, independent woman who worked her butt off to make it through school, who held a job, who raised respectful children while exhausted and hungry and broke.
You may ask why I care about this chick so much. I care about this situation because there are so many women who are worth so much more to the world than this spoiled little girl. I care because when this kind of thing happens, people like to shrug it off, or think that “giving her attention is what she wants.” Sure, she does want the attention. But at the same time, WE, as intelligent people, need to call this out. We NEED to make it wholly embarrassing and shaming for them to do this. We need to stop shaking our heads and going on about our day. We need to call these people what they are. This sense of entitlement and narcissism is its own kind of evil, and us standing around doing nothing about it only allows it to continue to flourish.
Some of you might say that she’s mentally ill. Judging by the comments from people who apparently know her and are telling her she needs to not be alone right now and needs to call her doctor, I’m guessing that’s probably part of it. But here’s another politically incorrect fact: Mental illness doesn’t absolve you of responsibility for your actions.
Ten bucks says if you offered her a job in San Diego, she wouldn’t take it.
