Broken People - Resting bitch face - Netflix

Resting bitch face, also known as RBF, or bitchy resting face, is a facial expression which unintentionally appears as if a person is angry, annoyed, irritated, or contemptuous, particularly when the individual is relaxed, resting or not expressing any emotion. More gender-neutral or opposite gender phrases like hostile resting face ('HRF)', resting murder face, resting dick face (RDF), resting douche face or resting asshole face have been suggested to apply the term to men. The concept has been studied by psychologists and may have psychological implications related to facial biases, gender stereotypes, human judgement, and decision making. The concept has also been studied by scientists with information technology. Utilizing a type of facial recognition system, they found that the phenomenon is real and the condition is as common in males as in females, despite the gendered word bitch that is used to name the concept.

In a 2013 year-end round-up of newly popular words and phrases, New York Times writer Grant Barrett asserted that the phrase dates back “at least ten years”. The comedy group Broken People uploaded a parody public service announcement video titled “Bitchy Resting Face” (BRF) on the Funny or Die website in which male and female “sufferers” of an annoyed-looking blank expression ask for understanding from non-sufferers. It has since gone on to become a popular Internet meme, and to become more commonly known as Resting Bitch Face (RBF).
