Emily Adonna is a model and businesswoman – already sounds like she’s got it pretty good there doesn’t it? – who decided to post up a TikTok explaining about how being beautiful definitely has its disadvantages that might not be visible to other people looking at her. Take a look at it below and see what you think:

Pretty privilege is a thing, I’m not here to deny that.

But it comes with disadvantages. I’ve never been in a job where I haven’t been harassed. I’ve rarely been in social situations where I haven’t been harassed.

People don’t usually take ‘no’ as an answer with me, because they think I’m something to be possessed.

People do not ask before touching me in public, I am grabbed regularly.

I was once passed up on for a business opportunity because they said that I was too young and beautiful.

They thought that would be distracting for the other people in the industry.

At 15, I started working in a restaurant with all older people and one man actually got fired for grabbing me.

It didn’t stop after that except for a brief period after I had my children when I was sleep deprived and had gained pregnancy weight. When I returned to my natural body, I became an object again.

It’s definitely hard when people treat me like I should be grateful they’re grabbing me or making sexual advances because it must be what I want given the nature of how I present physically.

I honestly have started to become a bit of a hermit. I’m not sure if that’s the best way to navigate it but it will always sound better to me to be safe at home than convincing a stranger that ‘no’ means ‘no’.

OK so I did start this article off thinking that she was probably a dickhead for moaning about being good looking and successful, but what she’s describing there really doesn’t sound that great for her – or anyone in the same position for that matter. And at least she was self aware enough to say that everyone on TikTok was going to hate her for coming out with it, so I have to give her some props for that.

Anyway, it really sucks that men act like that all the time and that she has to put up with that, but I still think Emily probably has a better time of it than a lot of women out there. Nobody should really have to put up with harassment like that though. Hopefully her video does something to change that, although I very much doubt that.

For more of the same, check out this woman who is in a sexual relationship with a model plane. Different kind of pretty privilege.
