I find it incredibly unfair that there is no male equivalent for the term “resting bitch face.” Men have faces too, and the poor guys don’t receive any recognition for it. All women have to do is walk around without even bothering to smile at every single passerby, and we’re gifted our very own label. In fact, I would say men have even more quintessential facial expressions that reveal what kind of nightmare they are than women do. Let’s give these boys the credit they deserve. For the sake of equality, here is a list of resting faces for men.
