This week, we tackle a topic that doubles as a prerequisite at Nymphet Alumni University: beauty pseudosciences, from Kibbe body typing to color seasons and seduction archetypes. We consider beauty as capital, how the rising popularity of these systems on social media represents a reaction to body positivity, and the dangers of masculine and feminine energy discourse on TikTok.
