Pretty girls get everything, the bitches!

On a forum I frequent, men (and at least one woman) are complaining about a pretty woman who (they assume) got ahead faster than most men in the same profession because she’s pretty.

This girl rubs me wrong. She is in the position because she uses her good looks it seems.

Ladies (for the maybe 2 others on this website,) you don’t have to give up your femininity to be a [redacted], but for the love of christ, please don’t exploit it…you make the rest of us look bad.

I don’t think just being a girl means you’ll get an awesome [redacted] job, but I know of a handful who have def gotten hired because of their gender.

Because of their gender?

Some pretty women will use their looks to get what they want, yes. Many pretty women, even those who aren’t trying, are given advantages, yes. But by whom?

Is it her fault that men trip over themselves to open doors for her?

Is it her fault a man will hire her, even if she’s underqualified, because she’s pretty?

Is it her fault that men want to give her cars or necklaces?

Is it her fault that she advances faster than you do even though you’ve done twice the work for twice as long?

None of these things would happen to her if they weren’t allowed to happen. She would get none of those things if someone (think hard) weren’t there just waiting to give them to her.

You dig?

    Completely. That is the definition of privilege right there, some advantage given you by someone else’s action.

    And htis is gendered in this case, this is femlae privilege, becasue a hot looking man would not have gotten the same preferment among that bunch of men.
