The manly, thick eyebrow (a complaint about “Scandal”)

14 August 2014

I like Scandal (2012-present) because I can’t think of a better way than giving my brain a luscious sugary treat than sitting down to watch Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) do anything whatsoever. My only complaint: I just don’t find President Grant (Tony Goldwyn) attractive. And after two years of mulling over the problem, I’ve decided that it’s because his eyebrows aren’t thick enough.

That’s right. Of all the inane, random things to write about, I’m writing about men’s eyebrows. (And it’s not just Fitz. The whole show is littered with men with light eyebrows!)

So, at the risk of embarrassing myself further, let me offer a visual history of thick brows that have titillated me throughout my personal life (in rough chronological order as I discovered them):

Ahh. That feels better. Back to more serious feminist work soon, I promise.

    interesting. trying to imagine George Clooney with pale/no eyebrows. hasn’t Tony Goldwin payed a villain at some point? That kind of thing sticks.
