Have you been the victim of beauty discrimination?

Hi ladies! I'm working on an article for Glamour magazine and am looking for women who are between the ages of 20 and 40 who have experienced some form of discrimination based on looks. If you have a story to share, let me know! If you respond, I may ask you for more info. Thanks in advance!

  • I think I've experienced some discrimination because of my looks its just seemed there were women I'd envoke jealousy or "cattiness" in. I've felt I've had to be extra nice to get people to give me a chance to get to know me before writing me off as a snot.

  • I've also been introduced to co-workers wives and given the 3rd degree and asked if I had a boyf/husb etc.

    I love the mag btw, just not the Miley Cyrus issue!

  • My downstairs neighbor (a man) has a girlfriend who is insanely jealous of me. I can't even say "hi" to him anymore because she's afraid he'll leave her for me. It's because I'm much more attractive than her. It's silly really.

  • Ladies....I am NOT a troll! I have been a member for over a year, but have been pretty inactive lately. I do some work for Glamour Magazine on a very part-time basis to assist them in finding sources for stories. I love that you are encouraging others to be cautious and looking out for your fellow mommies but please know that I am a mommy too and I'm just trying to get some anecdotes from people. My efforts are to expose discrimination based on appearances that happens in the U.S.

    Look at my older posts....some have to do with general mom stuff, others have to do with Glamour stories.
