Having been a hardcore Singaporean all my life, I’ve always had one persistent innate wish:
To see our local charismatic politicians garbed in drag, because why not.
Alas, however, it’s nigh impossible to actually slap a wig on them, considering how they’re constantly being surrounded by their entourage.
Plus, one has to be willing to sacrifice his/her dignity in doing so, as there’s always the off chance that a Stomper lurks in the shadows.
To get Stomped or not to get Stomped, that’s the question.
Just as I was about to give up on this admittedly twisted dream of mine, however, one app stepped up to the plate:
“Hold my beer,” said Faceapp. “I’ve aged people; I can surely turn them into alpha females as well.”
People Use FaceApp to Change Gender of S’pore Politicians & They Look Beautiful
Now if you recall, there used to be this gender-transformation app that was really hot on Facebook.
And sometime last year, Snapchat brought the gender-transformation genre back into the limelight with its filters.
But as time passed, interest waned. Slowly but surely, all the gender-transformation hype of before has gradually withered away…
Previously associated with a worldwide ageing trend and Russian data-leakers, FaceApp is back again for a dose of that intoxicating Internet fame. And what better way to come out on social media headlines worldwide than the upgrade of an old trend?
Yes, folks. Gender-transformation is relevant again.
You might have seen it on Facebook; dozens of photos of your favourite celebrities, all given the good ol’ Gender-roo.
And now, it seems that someone dealt the same dose to our own familiar faces;
Our local politicians.
And so without further ado, prepare your popcorn and drinks as we roll out a slideshow of the most feminine politicians Singapore has ever witnessed…
With some of them becoming absolute thirst traps.
