A slew of young women have taken to TikTok to reveal how they benefit from being really, really, really good-looking.
The content creators have shared videos discussing their “pretty privilege,” saying they’re showered with free gifts and attention simply for being conventionally attractive.
The bragging beauty claims she scored drinks, Uber rides, surf lessons and $500 tickets to Lollapalooza all free of charge, for no other reason than the fact that she is stunning.
Fagbemi says the people who gave her the gifts weren’t expecting anything in return and were simply excited to be in her company.
Similarly, Kentucky-based blonde Mermaid Keels claims she’s been the beneficiary of “pretty privilege” since shedding more than 100 pounds.
The beauty shared an old photo that showed her at 257 pounds, when she claimed she rarely received any perks.
These days, however, Keels claims she benefits from her beauty every single day in a variety of ways.
“It can be little subtle things you wouldn’t notice,” she explained in a viral video. “Not being charged for that extra drink or dessert at a restaurant, or having someone offering to put the air in your tires instead of seeing you struggle doing it.”
“And you can say, ‘Oh my God, maybe people are just good’ or, ‘Maybe people are doing a good deed’ and I’m with you, they’re doing a good deed, but why didn’t they do a good deed when I was 257lb?” she asked.
“All of a sudden, all of these good deeds start happening to me the moment I looked like this. I went from one good deed happening to me a year, to 10 of them happening to me in a week!”
However, other beautiful TikTokers say “pretty privilege” isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
Stunning Olivia Paulsen says she’s been called a “bitch” simply for being hot.
Meanwhile, a TikToker named Allii says there are numerous perils that come with being pretty.
She claims it can be hard dating and making genuine female friendships when women are intimidated by beauty.
“Sometimes girls see you as competition … and they secretly want to see you fail,” she stated in a video, adding that being beautiful can also lead to feelings of loneliness and “being excluded from things.”
Meanwhile, another attractive TikTok user, Madeline Ford, concedes that while women benefit from “pretty privilege,” they have to put in far more effort than men in order to reap the rewards.
She says average-looking men who simply take a shower receive the same privileges and respect as highly attractive women who have to labor over their looks.
“Being pretty is the rent we pay for human decency and to exist in this world,” she defiantly declared.
