It’s just a trope

Arguably the funniest stuff written on the subject of invisibility comes from the TV Tropes people; it’s simultaneously perfectly deadpan in the purest academic sense, and yet it’s jam-packed with snark. This sentence, which references two other tropes, is classic:

Permanent, involuntary invisibility is usually treated as either Cursed With Awesome or Blessed With Suck depending on the story.

There’s also an extremely-detailed list of characters, permanent or temporary, voluntary, male or female or perhaps something else entirely, which you should probably keep for reference.
