Comedian Michael Henry has some thoughts on “pretty privilege,” which psychotherapist and heartthrob Matthew Dempsey previously defined in a video in August. The video encouraged gay men to start admitting that they gain certain advantages because of their looks.
Well, in Henry's video, a stereotypically attractive gay man (played by Eduardo Sanchez-Ubanel) was under the impression that pretty privilege, which he described as “a scientific term used by doctors…it’s what happens when you have a really great face, a full head of hair, sexy eyebrows, tight ass, quarter-sized nipples, 8-inch penis…all the traits that gay men unanimously like,” can actually be very detrimental.
Henry perfectly describes why that isn’t quite the case. Check out the funny video below.
