In the clip, Tia, who has over 73.8K followers on TikTok, admitted that she takes advantage of the male privilege by putting on a masculine masquerade and makes more money by delivering orders at night. She said she does so to save herself from harassment and any incidents that she could be subjected to if people knew she was a woman.

“POV: You’re scared to deliver orders at night alone, but you make more money at night, so you dress up as a man,” the text on her video read.

“Just wear more baggy pants for extra accuracy,” someone wrote.

“Try pants that aren’t cuffed at the bottom, I think that will help sell it,” wrote someone else.

Speaking to The New York Post, Tia Zakher, an Egyptian who lives in Canada, said she started dressing up as a man during her nighttime food deliveries because she felt unsafe due to some evil men lurking on the streets.

“I feel unsafe delivering nighttime orders appearing as a woman due to chances of harassment or unwarranted attention from men on the street,” she said.

“I came up with the idea to dress up as a man as I felt like I would feel more safe when doing so, and it is less likely for someone to bother me,” she added.
