This Snapchat filter is what’s getting everyone to re-download Snapchat.
With a tap on the screen, you can have airbrushed, blemish free-skin and long locks for females, and a chiseled-jaw, and clean-cut facial hair for males. The filter swaps female features and male features on the opposite sex.
And we are living for people’s interpretation of it!

I am SHOCKED AND UPSET. Don’t use the new Snapchat filter if you don’t want to find out that the male version of you is, in fact, your brother. pic.twitter.com/A5Kv3MZ0SG

Some people are also using this filter to catfish people on Tinder and other dating apps.

Are these filters a new and dangerous way to catfish, or a social construct? Only time will tell.
