Emily Adonna, who lives in California, (pictured) says she’s “tired of being pretty” because of the “cons” of pretty privilege. In a series of TikTok videos, Emily claims she was sexually assaulted by a stranger and people have not taken her seriously in the past

“I’ve never had a job where I wasn’t harassed. I’ve rarely been in social situations where I wasn’t harassed,” Emily claims.

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

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

Emily claims she once passed up a business opportunity because others thought she was “too young and pretty,” and thought she would “distract other people in the industry.”

“I'Ve Never Had A Job Where I Wasn'T Harassed. I Have Rarely Been In Social Situations Where I Was Not Harassed. People Usually Don'T Take &Quot;No&Quot; In Reply To Me, Because They Think I'M Possessed,

“I'Ve Never Had A Job Where I Wasn'T Harassed. I Have Rarely Been In Social Situations Where I Was Not Harassed. People Usually Don'T Take &Quot;No&Quot; In Reply To Me, Because They Think I'M Possessed,

“I’ve never had a job where I wasn’t harassed. I have rarely been in social situations where I was not harassed. People don’t usually take “no” for an answer to me because they think I’m something to get possessed with,” Emily claims

Emily said she’s also noticed a difference in how others treat her when she’s fully clothed compared to when she’s in casual clothes.

“I’m treated differently, and it’s night and day, from the moment I go out in public wearing a mask and ragged old oversized clothes, and when I look at the way I am now,” she said.

“When I look ragged, people don’t touch me, they feel they have no right to me.”

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

“It’s the idea that because I’m present and beautiful, 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 like,” she said.

“People say, ‘Well, you’re a model, so you have to be used to the attention or you should want this attention.’ That’s what you do it for, isn’t it?’, no.’

In a third video, Emily admitted that she was “so tired of being beautiful” that she decided to get a rose ring and hand tattoo that were “culturally designed to destroy beauty.”

Emily said she’s also noticed a difference in how others treat her when she’s fully clothed compared to when she’s in casual clothes. “I’m treated differently, and it’s night and day, from the moment I go out in public wearing a mask and ragged old oversized clothes, and look how I am now,” she said

The first video has been viewed more than 279,000 times and the topic seemed to divide opinion.

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

“Why do beautiful women think only beautiful women are attacked?” another noted.

But a third woman stood up for Emily, writing, “There are so many haters here. They only hate because you are beautiful; they partially prove your point without realizing it.’

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

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