People regard you differently because of your beauty, according to the pretty privilege. People appear to prefer you over unattractive women, and they may even regard you as a nice person despite never having met you. However, this is only one of many issues that unattractive women encounter.
And we all know that the word “unattractive” might simply mean “average” or “ordinary.” These women discussed what it’s like to live in a world when your appearance doesn’t meet certain people’s beauty standards on Reddit. They’re heartbreaking, to be honest, and something needs to be done.
“Everyone is always trying to fix me.” My auntie inquired as to how I planned to find a man with a figure like mine and a sense of style similar to mine. Mind you, she’s in her fifties and still single, but that’s OK.” – Vermicelli-Forsaken3
“When someone finds you attractive in a genuine way, and you assume it’s a joke.” taco h0e
“Sympathy and empathy are two words that come to me when I think about empathy. When you’re the cute, pretty crier, people want to soothe you and protect you. On social media, I rarely see ugly people portraying melancholy or mental illness.
When you’re ugly, it’s a different issue. It’s simply a little weird.” PikaBooSquirrel
“Unsolicited weight loss/fitness advise (that is frequently incorrect and does not take my health into account) and unsolicited advice on how to attract guys.” – Loalenatrice
“That you continuously compare yourself to more gorgeous women and feel like you’ll never be enough, no matter how many times your significant other tells you that you’re lovely.” Warai-Kitten
“F**k off people who think you don’t have the right to appreciate yourself or who think your confidence is ‘brave.'” – GettingThere1212
“Spending hours trying to look great just to learn that everyone else is still a million times more attractive than you when you step outdoors.” Ethereal-Glow
“It’s like being invisible in front of your buddies.” They’re all having a good time, and you’re just sitting there doing nothing.” – khajiitidanceparty
“It’s cute and trendy if a slender, pretty girl dresses really casually with no effort, but if I do it, I’m lazy and don’t care about my appearance.” – Loalenatrice
“I didn’t get the same treatment as my attractive pals.” People were less accommodating to me, leaving me out of things (particularly photos), and only wanting me present when it was convenient for them.” Ethereal-Glow
“You should be grateful that any man wants to sleep with you, and it’s egotistical to believe you deserve to be in a respectful relationship.” I’m supposedly good to sleep with, but God forbid somebody take me outside and be seen with me, even if they aren’t particularly attractive.” – bbb9999
“I’m not ugly, but I’ve always been chubby.” Because ‘big women have little self-esteem and seek validation through sx,’ most men imagined I’d be an easy f** and a promiscuous woman.” – Lilith 89
“Oh, I’m really looking forward to this one.” I’m rather attractive, and I’m frequently approached — I’m attractive enough to appeal to a broad range of people, but not so gorgeous as to be threatening.
But I wasn’t always like this; for five years, I was overweight due to medication. When I stopped taking my medications last year, I gained a lot of muscle and dropped a lot of weight. I’m now preparing for a competitive powerlifting competition. I was cute before I accumulated the weight, but my thirties have been incredible — this weight loss has given me anime eyes and sharp cheekbones, a look I’ve never had before.
I’m treated better in every aspect of my life, and it’s caused me to develop actual body dysmorphia, which I’ve been through treatment for. Men regularly hit on me, ladies continuously ask for advice, and all anyone wants to talk about is how I look, which is the least interesting f**king thing about me.
Pretty advantage and thin privilege are quite real, and the saddest thing is discovering that my worst worry – that I would be worthless to society if I weighed more – was completely correct. Thank you, society, for the fantastic bodily dysmorphia you’ve bestowed upon me.
What’s strange is that I’ve spent so many years in the shadows that I have no desire to leave them, but, just like when I was overweight, people believe they have the right to openly criticise my appearance. It’s awful, and it only serves to demonstrate how undervalued women are for reasons other than their appearance.” – thedjmk
“People, especially guys, are being nasty to you.” You don’t deserve respect or decency if they aren’t attracted to you.” – don’tbesurprised1
“There are fewer job openings. Attractiveness is a factor in landing a job.” – marymoon77
“They would hit on my significant other right in front of me when I was obese.” When I’m skinny, they glance at him, then look down at the ground and go away.” – niagara falls catniagara falls catniagara falls
“As a large woman, I can’t go to 90% of my doctor’s appointments without my weight being brought up.” That’s good in a checkup or physical, but if I’m going in for a sinus infection, I don’t think I need to talk about how obese I am right now unless it’s going to help me get rid of my sinus infection.” Electronic-Cow7250
“I feel awful for my spouse sometimes, since I think he’s humiliated or could do better.” Sensitiverock85
