The Mewing Madness: What's Behind the Teen Craze?

Ever seen your lil’ sibling sticking their tongue to the roof of their mouth and tracing their jawline? No, they’re not possessed by a cat – it’s the latest teen trend called “mewing” and it’s not what you think. Buckle up, we’re diving into the weird and hilarious world of mewing!

What is mewing, you ask?

Apparently, it’s this “do-it-yourself facial restructuring method” where you press your tongue against the roof of your mouth. Sounds weird, right? The idea is that it’ll magically sculpt your jawline into a sharper, more defined look.

But here's the thing...

Dentists aren’t exactly buying it. They say there’s no scientific proof that mewing actually works. They say things like genetics and stuff play a bigger role in your facial structure, not just where you stick your tongue. ‍

So, why are teens mewing then?

Well, here’s the funny part. Teens kinda took the whole thing and ran with it in a different direction. They added their own twist to the trend, using it to avoid answering questions.

Here's how it works:

  • Mew: Press your tongue to the roof of your mouth (like the OG trend intended).
  • Shhh: Put your finger over your lips like you’re telling someone to be quiet.
  • Jawline trace: Slide your finger down your jawline, like you’re showing off your amazing (but probably not-because-science-says-no) new jawline.

It’s basically a way to tell someone, funnily, “I can’t answer your question right now, I’m busy mewing!”

Is it disrespectful?

Some teachers might think so, but most teens see it as a harmless way to get a laugh. They’re not actually trying to get out of answering questions, it’s more like a playful way to interact with the trend.

So, there you have it!

The mewing trend is about having fun and expressing yourself, even if the science behind it is shaky. Just remember, it’s probably not going to magically change your jawline, but it might get you a chuckle or two.
