Have you ever been completely in love with someone, on the brink of marrying them, and then one day you see them without mascara and just throw up everywhere? Narrow escape! This is why women wake up an hour before their male partners every morning—to FOOL the IDIOTS who love them into thinking they're actually beautiful. Jokes on them, we've been doing it for hundreds of years. Luckily, there is a new app to help men from falling prey to a well-contoured succubus and it's causing quite the stir among the faithful people of the Internet.
Introducing Makeapp, the app that takes a photo of your woman and removes the traces of makeup to show you the monster lurking underneath. Made by Russian founder Ashot Gabrelyanov, according to NY Mag, it's the newest way to mess up your relationship for no reason and people are slamming him for his 'bad taste' app. Do you see any issue with it?
The app can both remove makeup and add it on, if you really just want to see what someone would look like with more lipstick. Not only is it astoundingly sexist, it shows a remarkable lack of trust in the person you're dating. There's only so much makeup can really hide after all, and if you're attracted to someone when they're wearing blue eye shadow, let them wear the eyeshadow and call it a night. But sexism isn't logical, it's just petty and mean. Simply put the app really isn't doing anyone any favors as it's just a filter designed to make you look slightly worse. No magic here.x
And everyone is pointing that out:
An all around terrible idea, but at least it has generated some intriguing concepts:
Hmm. I wish to invest in your product.
