Not pretty, really

What the last girl on the reel says is very meaningful and has a negative impact on the self-esteem of women and girls. I'm not the prettiest girl around or anything, sometimes people give me things, which is nice. But the dirty things men say when they find you attractive are really hurtful. It makes you feel that you must be very ugly because pretty girls are supposed to have a nice boyfriend and get married and have beautiful children. It just doesn't seem to work out that way.

Maybe it is more about where your self esteem is when you get these "compliments" than receiving them. If you are already insecure they can do harm, but if you are secure in who you are, pretty or not, then they won't have the same negative effect.

I'm pretty sure you have never been spoken to this way. Studies have shown it's damaging. It's also damaging when God hasn't seen fit to enact a better plan in your life and the nice boyfriend never materializes.
