A woman has opened up about her experience as an “attractive woman in society” wherein women supposedly ‘hate’ her for being too attractive.
Brenttany Sharraine took to TikTok to discuss the difficulties that come with being an attractive woman.
In the video, which has more than 400,000 views, Sharraine can be seen walking through New York City’s Central Park while she explains that she is not talking about “pretty privilege,” instead, she is just voicing her experience.
“Here are a few things I’ve noticed as an attractive woman in society,” she began. “And this is not pretty privilege or anything – this is just me giving you guys my experiences on how people treat me.
“Yes, I do get a lot of stares and I get a lot of compliments too. Some people gaze and some people scowl at me.”
Sharraine then revealed that most of the scowls she receives come from women as she adds: “I have never in my life noticed a man scowling at me, so it says a lot.
“I’ve been told I come off very intimidating, although I’m not mean at all to people.”
She also explained that it affects both her personal and work life as she has previously been used as a “trophy” by business partners.
“When dating, I’ve met everyone’s families – parents, sisters, brothers – I’ve always met them, even if it’s not serious and we’ve only known each other for months,” she said.
“I’ve been invited to events and meetings with business partners, I’m aware now as a woman in her late 20s that I’ve been used as a trophy before. I don’t allow that anymore.
“I’ve been told by women that they thought I was a b***ch when they first met me, I’ve been told by plenty of men that I look expensive, I’ve been excluded from friend groups even if I created the friend group.”
But despite being confident about herself now, Sharraine had to battle through insecurities when she was younger.
“People would think I was being self-absorbed and not humble simply because I was pretty.
“My own confidence was not enough so it makes sense that I left high school with barely one friend.”
After posting the video online, Sharraine’s TikTok was flooded with comments, many of them by women who have had similar experiences.
“No one talks about how lonely life is for a pretty girl. And how much evil eye we get daily from other women,” one person wrote.
“This post makes me feel so seen! I have heard all the same things,” said another.
