#PenBoob Trend: Hot or Not?

#PenBoob Trend: Hot or Not?

Stellar Stellar
It's a perfect time to ask once again: "What's wrong with you, internet?" Here is a new selfie trend, which started, as all strange things do, in Asia. It's something like a challenge to see if you are a "real woman", and that's a premise I don't really get. You are a real woman if you can take a picture of your underboob? Men, probably, are maintaining this trend for obvious reasons, but I'm conflicted. Something in between with "I don't want to live on this planet anymore" and "whatever, the Kardashians hit the red carpets with more provocative looks, so meh". What do you think of that?

I think I'm more of a "not", but I think I won't stand the temptation to try it without taking pictures, just to know the possibilities.

My mom used to talk about this as a thing that girls did when she was a kid! I think that it's serious that everything that used to be in style eventually comes back.

I'm really not a fan of stuff like this, because I see it as another way for girls with low self-esteem to get reaffirmation for the wrong reasons. I mean, doing it with a group of girlfriends for laughs or in the privacy of your own home (like you said, Stellar, trying it out for fun) is totally fine - probably a hilarious slumber party game - but I really think that selfies of stuff like this can be super damaging. And knowing how brutal high schools are, I can see some girls getting destroyed over this, and it just makes me a little queasy in the tummy. And I mean, it's not like twelve year old girls aren't going to be able to see this trend and follow along... things are going to get more and more risque... Especially because of the "real woman" assessment: I can see overweight guys and small-busted (or particularly large-busted) girls getting teased mercilessly in a high school scenario, and realistically, that's where trends like these go first when they come to North America. Aside from this, posts made online will follow you for life. So if you put up a selfie like this when you're fourteen, there's no way for you to get it totally off the internet, and it could resurface when you're twenty-two and trying to find work.

I mean, these risks are there with any viral trend, but I just don't know. The last trend that I heard of coming out of Asia was "eyelash sex," where people fluttered their eyelashes all over their partners' genitals and ended up with pink eye, so maybe I'm already biased against this.

I'm a little confused. Is the point of this to take a pic of the underboob cleavage?

When I followed the link provided, I was asked to install an unwanted app for my phone and was unable to see the pic.

What's the point of taking a pic of the underboob?

I agree what you put on the Internet follows you forever.

The Pink eye comment made me smirk picturing batting eyelashes over erogenous zones.

I don't like the real woman assessment either.

I graduated high school 16 years ago ( before selfies, phones 24/7) and kids were mean then regardless if you were small or large chested without provoking. I hate to know how high school is now.

I think that you're totally on the ball. Kids are still totally mean without provoking, so I imagine that the last thing that they need is more fuel. I finished high school not long after the advent of Facebook, and I am just hella happy that I didn't have high speed internet when I was young. I mean, there wasn't anything horrifically bad, but I can easily see myself having done tons of things that I wouldn't want to be on public record.

As for the eyelash thing, I seriously couldn't make that up. There was like, an outbreak of pinkeye in Japan a couple of years ago because kids were butterfly kissing each others' hoohas et cetera, and bringing their conjunctiva a little too close to bacteria that conjunctiva should not meet. And like good little opportunists, the bacteria went crazy.

When my mom did this, it was a test for if you "needed" a bra. If you couldn't hold a pencil in place under your breast, you were part of the itty bitty titty committee, and you were kinda looked at as "not old enough." In this sense, it seems like you're not a "real woman" if your breasts aren't large enough to keep a pencil up.

Sorry for all the air quotes.

I feel like there's no point at all. You can look it up here, if you are still interested.

Anyway, I can see us all here pretty depressed about modern school and kids being mean. I bet we could find AT LEAST ONE plus of that trend! After all, progress should be positive, and if we couldn't find pluses in selfies at all, the questions pops up...

Thanks for the link Stellar. Out of all the things to place under a breast, why a pen? Seeing as how we are using office supplies to measure how much of a "woman" one is, why not a stapler (either metal or electric your choice), Post It notes, a whole box of pens, tissues, a ream of printer paper or other larger item. I mention these items partly because I think they are funny but also to point out the absurdity of a solitary pen.

I've seen other underboob pic's and thought they were hot, but then again, these were older professional models that were catering to a different audience. There was no body shaming going on.

As for the "real woman" comment, from my perspective that's just stupid.

I think it's stupid, but I personally like underboobs so I think the pictures themselves are hot. The "real woman" comment is the stupidest part of it. Anybody who identifies as a woman is a real woman. Boob size doesn't determine that.
