In todays society privileges and discrimination are a big thing. Mentions are for example skin color, race, rich/poor etc..
But no one ever talks about the real privilege.
That is beauty. Think about it, if you're beautiful you have so many privileges. Studies have shown that for example in US presidential elections the presidents with more desirable physical traits have 20% more votes than people less attractive.
People that are good looking easily are more respected, have less trouble making friends and in some cases even find it easier to get a job or promotion.
There have even been studies that prove women find unattractive men suspicous while being approached or looked at. With attractive men this is perceived differently.

Beauty is the #1 privilege.

Interesting perspective. This applies in a lot of situations but I don't believe attractive people have cart blanche simply because of genetics.

You can relate charisma in a similar sense. Many charismatic idiots get to positions they shouldn't reach while superior managers/intellectuals/whomever can't properly express or convey the ideas in their heads.

In a social sense beauty is a clear advantage but is there data correlating beauty with economic advantages? I've seen firsthand more attractive people get a position over someone who looks.. stinky and this definitely applies when considering a customer facing job role. But is there an actual pay gap?

Ageism (if that's even a word) has the same effect to a degree. I have superior skills over several of my colleagues but because they are my senior they're paid higher even though they output less.

I guess the situation is true across many cultures in the world. People have high respect for things they perceive as being prestigious. Such  examples can be attributed to how people see beautiful or attractive women. For instance, when it comes to men and women in relationships, this is very true as the less beautiful or ugly always have low esteem. It is indeed a  great privilege to be beautiful.

You're touching a sensitive topic of modern women being extremely superficial. They react to both attractive and unattractive men with suspicion and sometimes even anger.
You can find videos on youtube where an attractive man approaches random women and asks them for a coffee and then a woman does the same thing with random men. All men are at least nice to the woman, they stop, have a word with her, most agree to go and some gently refuse. It's different with women. When they are approached they mostly don't even look at the man and just walk away like he was a barking dog. Some even tell him off rudely. We are not evolving in the right direction that's for sure.

   Beauty comes from the inside! Physical beauty is something else, it can be privilege but not necessarily. Being attractive is like
you have something to offer to people who value attractiveness, same like you can have a nice voice and you can sing, some
people value that, some not. Attraction, singing, drawing, being strong or fast are biological characteristics, not personal (learned),
just to state the obvious.
   If it brings no advantage, it`s not a privilege. Just because you are beautiful, or something else, does not mean that you have advantage.
You need to know how to use what you have in order to be a person with privileges.

When it comes to job hunting in real life where "pleasing personality" is one of the criteria and with that alone.I already
failed and end up on not getting hired.For courting some women, you dont have the confidence yet you know that they
might end up on accusing you on doing something bad when you are approaching thats why this reality does hurts soo much.  Cry

Life is full of privileges. First privilege should be that you were born.  Second that you were born healthy. Then there is pile of other privileges everyone had. Some had more then others.

Reminded me of that somewhat viral Pretty Privilege vid. This is definitely a hidden bias. We associate beauty with everything good.

I do understand that there are positions that require a certain level of aesthetics (I find that cashiers and bagers at grocery chains tend to be above average-looking) but when presented with equal qualifications and both having pleasing personalities, for most jobs it's likely the better-looking one that would get the position. We're just wired that way.

That's coz they think too highly of themselves. Then they hit 30 and they throw themselves on men's feet, men who they would have not given a second glance when they were in their 20s.

The real privilege is this... the right to lay down your rights for a while, and operate by license from others (which is privilege).

Stand anyone next to anyone else. Why does one have more rights than another? He doesn't. If he simply takes rights over another, he is doing wrongs, not exercising rights.

Privilege can only be given and accepted, temporarily. Rights are inherent in all... as are abilities to do wrongs.

Cool

This is really a thing. I read a book before titled Beauty Bias (forgot the author's name) and yes, people do go extra miles for you if you are attractive. There were also several social experiments already done (you can look up videos of these) where people ask strangers for favors and they tally how much the attractive and unattractive accomplices were able to convince to help.

Actually this situation do hurt me so bad.Im aint that handsome looking guy that why i can fully relate to this one.
When it comes to job hunting in real life where "pleasing personality" is one of the criteria and with that alone.I already

I'm unattractive and don't have a pleasing personality too so yes, I've been there. You just got to show them your skills.

Regarding women, you can make up for lack of attractiveness with social signalling, either you look like you've made it (cars, expensive watches, etc) or maybe surround yourself with female friends, if you have any.

Beauty is the #1 privilege.

The flipside of that privilege ... beauty is for sale and turned into a commodity to be exploited. You can see this in the modeling/fashion and entertainment industries where the beautiful are routinely pimped, prostituted, used, and abused by those with wealth, status and power above them. So beauty may grant someone additional opportunity but simultaneously make them a mark for the unscrupulous. The same quality can be both a strength and a weakness, both a blessing and a curse (and vice versa) and I believe this is true of most, if not all things. The yin within the yang, and the yang within the yin.
