The Science is Settled: ‘Resting Bitch Face’ is Real

All you resting bitches ready for Hillary?

Good news, everyone! You can now wear your mildly discontented face with some validation.

The phenomenon known as “resting bitch face” is real, according to scientists. Better yet, there’s research available that could explain why some people are “throwing shade.”

In a study conducted in October 2015, scientists Abbe Macbeth and Jason Rogers from Noldus Information Technology, a company that develops software for observational and behavioral research, used the company’s FaceReader software to analyze the faces of celebrities like Kanye West, Kristen Stewart, Anna Kendrick and Queen Elizabeth II, notable public figures who have been known to occasionally wear a less-than-pleased expression.

“We were looking to see if anything popped out,” Macbeth said. “Our software is objective. It’s not prone to human subjectivity like we are.”

What they discovered was that celebrities who had bored or annoyed looks were showing underlying levels of emotions that are not seen in people who don’t have RBF.

Resting bitch face: It’s spreading:

    These bitches have it so rough no wonder they have Bitchface Syndrome. Their hard scrabble hand to mouth penniless from the gutter existence has made them this way. Yea nothing but obstacles and oppression for these poor downtrodden bitches. Oh and if you criticize them you are a faceist!

    One time Lincoln’s aides wanted him to hire a fellow. Lincoln refused, saying he didn’t like the look of the man’s face. The aides were indignant. Lincoln told them that babies are stuck with the face God gave them but by the time a man is in his mid-40s he is responsible for his face.
