Grimacing is for the beautiful people only. Not for you, Plain Jane!

Another dictate from Deborah Hill Cone,

Only very beautiful women should be allowed to grimace.

Apparently Petra Bagust can get away with pulling faces that would “make most women look mildly deranged”because it just makes her look even more adorable by cutting her “exquisite beauty” with even more character.

In accordance with this I probably should’ve spent my morning practicing my cheerful smile in the face of the stressful work I’ve been doing (given that I doubt I am classified as “very beautiful”), but instead I decided to spend the morning practicing my best grimace- in honour of DHC, of course.

    Oh gawd, ugly women with emotions? However shall we cope…

      Ugly women with NEGATIVE emotions. That’s a double strike. If you’re gorgeous then we’ll allow some negative emotion because that’s only one strike.

      • Amanda says:

        But but but…what if that negative emotion gives the beautiful woman WRINKLES.

        Better get botox then. But then how will she be able to express that beautiful negative emotion which gives her character…

        Christ, societies beauty standards give me a headache…

    I tend to grimace mostly when I fart… which is something women don’t do in public.

      Haha, yes, surely grimacing is associated with certain bodily functions…maybe that’s why it’s bad! Women don’t have bodily functions, surely
