When You Have Resting Bitch Face
Victoria Yan

Yes, hilarious indeed! Yet it’s your face, so you really can turn your RBF off (or on) when you wish. All it takes is a mirror and some practice. It will actually hurt a bit at first if you do it too long or too hard. But that’s only your facial muscles getting a news exercise routine. (Just don’t go overboard with a manic grimace.)

This is not to reinforce anyone’s patriarchal demand for prettiness. Just to help you have control, and therefore a choice in how you appear to others.
