Are You Pretty Privileged?

on May 12, 2015

In this picture Jennifer Garner has “Pretty Privilege.”

Has anyone heard of this Pretty Privilege thing? What does it mean? Why does it effect so many people? Do you think pretty/beautiful people tend to have more advantage? To answer these questions we must first define “pretty privilege.” I define pretty privilege as someone who has the look society wants and is able to have special treatment because of their pretty and beautiful look. I know I experienced the opposite. When my friend and I go out to a lounge or event, my friend who is taller with long straight hair and has a fabulous figure will get more attention from the waiters and bartenders. They would attend to her faster. I was ignored. I still have a body of a teenager. That is another story. But I did notice the difference how my friend was treated. She has pretty privilege.

Society puts so much pressure on women and men to have the right body, hair, flawless face, and designer clothes to have “Pretty Privilege.” Our young generation are falling into the same trap we fell into. We all want that “Pretty Privilege.” But not all of us will get it. The ones that don’t get it have to work harder to get it. I feel if you are beautiful in the inside it will shine on the outside. However, society goes by looks first then personality second.

In this picture Jennifer Garner will have to work harder.
