She's a female racecar driver, young, attractive, sexy...and works for godaddy, a well known sexist site that exploits women's sexuality for profit.
Quoting Euphoric:

 Is it sad that I don't know who she is?

 Ok, that sounds a little familiar.

No she just blames the car or the mechanics or her crew when she races badly...

Quoting Denisethedaring:

Danica Patrick is hardly a model of feminist rectitude, but does she really ask for any special treatment while racing?  If not, her annoying self-sexy hype is probably irrelevant to her racing skills...I simply don't know enough about her to say either way.

Now that you mention it, she seldom takes any personal responsability.

I wasn't aware of her asking for special treatment. As to using her sexuality/looks tho get ahead? Why not? If it works for her, sweet. She shouldn't ask for special treatment though, pretty people can get that without asking.

Apparently , you see nothing wrong with women who sleep their way to the top.  Not saying Danica is one of them.  But, according to your statement, there is nothing wrong with women using their bodies to get where they want to be.

Quoting EmilysMom2010:

My thoughts are;

Why not? I don't see anything wrong with it. Why can't we work EVERYTHING we have. Just because she is a beautiful woman she is supposed to hide that?

She is very arrogant. When she races badly its never "I had a bad day" she immediately blames the car or the mechanics or her crew... It's never her fault.

She ignores her fans at races. When other drivers go out to sign autographs and meet their fans she is well known for ignoring her fans completely and she's even pushed past them instead of just saying a quick hello.

She's also very snotty when it comes to discussing the fact that she's a "woman in a man's sport". Just a spoiled brat in my opinion.


Quoting jllcali:

Why do you say she is a horrible person? I don't know anything about other than she's a nascar driver



Quoting Mommy_of_Riley:

Eh





GoDaddy has nasty commericals.


Danica Patrick is a horrible person.





I guess they are made for one another.

The quote doesn't say she's asking for special treatment.

She's a good driver and I've never heard any complaints of her wanting special treatment as a driver. I've heard her say she's a driver, not a female driver when interviewed by reporters.

By the way just google complaints about her additude... I'm sure you'll find plenty. They fact that she's a bitch isn't hidden.

She's had pilots quit on her private planes because she is so rude.
