“I’ve never been in a job where I haven’t been harassed. Rarely have I been in social situations where I haven’t been harassed,” says Emily.

“People don’t usually take ‘no’ for an answer with me, because they think I’m something to own.

“People don’t ask before touching me in public, I get caught regularly, I’ve been mugged by a stranger.”

Emily claims she once passed up a business opportunity because others thought she was “too young and beautiful” and thought she would be “distracting to other people in the industry”.

Emily said she also noticed a difference in the way other people treated her when she was all dressed up compared to when she was wearing casual clothes.

“When I look ragged, people don’t touch me, they don’t feel entitled to me.”

In a follow-up video, Emily claims that often when talking about negative experiences, she asks questions such as “what were you wearing?” », « Were you too nice? and ‘why were you alone?’

“It’s the idea that because I’m present and I’m pretty, there’s a sense of entitlement to that space, or that I’m automatically associated with something sexual – that’s the part I don’t don’t like,” she said.

‘People say ‘Well, you’re a role model, so you should be used to attention or you should want that attention. That’s why you do it, isn’t it?’, no.’

In a third video, Emily admitted she was ‘tired of being pretty’ so much that she decided to get a pink ring and hand tattoo that was ‘culturally designed to destroy beauty’.

The initial video has been viewed over 279,000 times and the topic seemed to divide opinion.

“Girls who are not pretty by societal standards are also harassed in most social and professional situations. it’s not a pretty side effect of privilege,” one person wrote.

“Why do pretty women think that only pretty women are attacked? another commented.

But a third woman came to Emily’s defense and wrote: ‘So many haters here. They only hate because you’re pretty; they partially prove your point without even realizing it.

Another said: “Downside – not everyone takes your pain seriously because you’re pretty so ‘it’s not that bad’ and they really don’t care because of jealousy.”

‘Valid – every person has problems. Everyone deserves to be heard without comparison,” added another woman.
