Remember back in the early 2000’s when “duck face” was a thing? It quickly became a mocked, telltale sign of vain, attention seeking girls.
“Pout your lips! It makes you look playful, and makes your face look thin!”
Nearly twenty years later, we have ahegao.
But instead of it being some halfhearted attempt, it’s fully embracing it’s appeal.
There’s no mistaking it for anything else. You can’t accidentally make the face (unless you’re cumming your brains out).
It’s advertising you look good as porn.
You don’t need to be coy about it. It’s cute, it’s lewd, it’s objectifying and silly.
It’s saying you want the attention, and don’t care about anything else.
Every woman doing it knows it reduces them, but if anything that’s only made it more popular.
This is what the popular girls do – the girls all your friends and peers look up to.
Forget about being respected. The attention feels better than anything else.
