Look: Actually, it’s exhausting to inform.
Come on, it’s 2023. Everybody is aware of what Botox is by now. No, you misunderstand. I didn’t say Botox. I mentioned Brotox.
So what’s Brotox? It’s, um, Botox.
Proper. However for males! When males get Botox, it’s referred to as Brotox.
Males have at all times had Botox therapies. Sure, however now they’re doing it sufficient for it to turn out to be a pun.
What kind of portions are we speaking about? Big quantities. In response to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the amount of cash that males spend on Botox therapies has risen 400% since 2000. In 2020 alone, it’s estimated that 265,000 males had Botox procedures.
Wow, that’s loads. Why? Effectively, the longer reply is that the sweetness trade appears to have reached a degree of whole saturation in terms of making girls really feel insecure about their look, so has now turned its consideration in the direction of making males really feel so suffocated by fixed unobtainable pictures that they’re compelled to spend cash in a doomed try and hush their nagging sense of self-hatred.
Is there a shorter reply? Oh, positive, sure. Barbie.
Barbie? Yeah. A number of males have gone to see the brand new Barbie film, and have apparently been so alarmed that they don’t seem like Ken that they’re making inquiries about beauty therapies to treatment that.
Ken? Folks wish to look extra like a clueless, lifeless, genital-free doll from a film in regards to the horrors of the patriarchy that solely got here out a few weeks in the past? I do know, proper? So dreamy.
Are individuals not getting the purpose of Barbie? Who cares? The essential factor is that males really feel so dangerous about how they appear that they’re keen to pay a whole bunch of kilos to get their faces injected with paralysing brokers. We’ll be wealthy. Wealthy!
Hold on, do you’re employed for the sweetness trade? No. I’ve no monetary curiosity on this in anyway. No matter gave you that concept?
Is Brotox even that dangerous? Probably not. The injections don’t damage and solely take a second or two to manage. Sure, they’ll be left trying barely surprised for a couple of weeks afterwards, however that’s hardly the tip of the world.
Oh, that sounds nice. Is it value telling you now that extra males are getting buttock lifts and cheek implants too?
It’s exhausting to not be depressed by this, you already know. Right here, let me offer you some Brotox. You’ll nonetheless be depressed, however minus the frown traces.
I suppose there’s nothing incorrect with it, as long as it makes them comfortable. Precisely. Simply not so comfortable that they cease spending cash on messing up their faces with injections.
Do say: “True magnificence comes from inside.”
Don’t say: “I’m simply Ken.”
