Can someone please tell me why people are obsessed with the mole?
When I mean mole, I don’t mean tiny ones appear after hours of sun-basking; I consider those “freckles.” When I mean mole, I mean something huge and could exist as its own entity. It’s usually very dark and 3-dimensional.
Blatantly noticeable moles, to be frank, annoy me. I understand it’s superficial of me but whenever I spy a person with big moles or worse – moles that border between beauty mark and wart – I wonder why the individual hasn’t paid a visit to a dermatologist.
I then turn on the telly or flip open a mag and page after page I always stumble upon a celebrity who has refused to part with his/her mole. When asked about it, they claim they love it and it makes them feel unique. Moreover, a good number of actors, singers and models have been able to embrace their mole and build memorable careers upon the glory of their distinguishable feature.
Here are some random examples of well-known celebs who sport trademark moles with pride:
I am not saying these stars are lacking in charm, looks or talent. In fact, in a few cases the moles add a little spice – that extra oomph, if you will. What I am saying is that huge moles bother me a tad. Perhaps I’m obsessed with symmetry and the mole takes away from that?
I do admit that for some reason the mole works better on women (sorry, De Niro). Eva Mendes’ mole is CLEARLY far sexier than Rod Stewart’s. I wonder how many people out there share similar sentiments with me.
What’s your opinion on moles? Would you remove yours if you have/had one?
