Are you down with the new flu? Don’t panic. A lot of people are! It’s the flu in social media and it’s ‘The POUT.’
Recently a picture of Kareena Kapoor Khan and Ibrahim (Saif’s son) pouting got viral. If we’ll go through the lexicon meaning of pout, it shows displeasure by thrusting out the lips or wearing a sullen expression. But now-a-days, it’s a symbol of making oneself sexually attractive. A perfect picture is just about a perfect pout with adding the flattering filter, blurring the outlines, colors softened and much more. All of this in an instant click and is ready to be uploaded in Facebook, Instagram and other social media channels. And then your screen fills with thumbs up sign and heart shaped emoticons, especially if you have a profile of a girl. For people who have been judging them, let me tell you it’s not a symbol of making oneself sexually appealing but just a casual way of posing, like everyone else does. And for girls, let me tell you, you are beautiful in the way you are!
