Image is everything, sometimes for the better, other times for the worse. The image of Mia Khalifa is a very complex issue because dozens of edges to be analyzed are condensed into a single person, from the pornographic industry and its millions, to the objectification of women and prejudices.
Physical appearance is everyone’s calling card in front of the world, and what we show can have an impact, positively or negatively, on our relationships.
The adult film star who has been the face of a multi-billion dollar industry for more than a decade now wants to change what they see of her, and it won’t be easy.
Khalifa has long been critical of society’s beauty standards and challenges women to accept their bodies as they are.
In recent months, Khalifa has become an Instagram and TikTok influencer.
In her stories, among other actions, she promotes question and answer sessions in which her followers question her about everything, and she responds naturally.
The former conditioned movie star wants all of her porn-tinged videos removed from the web. In this sense, more than two million people signed a petition to achieve it.
This Tuesday, a video of Khalifa on TikTok in which she cries when she sees the story of a follower who tells her that she stopped wearing glasses went viral because at school they told her that she looked like the adult film actress.
Can we talk about this video?
Mia khalifa puts in the comments that for this reason she no longer uses them
We ALL have experiences from when we had since 12, how CHILDREN sexualized us from an early age.
The constant “you look like Mia with tied hair / glasses” + pic.twitter.com/B4BAl9jJXW

“I just saw a tiktok from Mia Khalifa responding to a girl who said she doesn’t wear glasses because they said she looked like her and she felt super uncomfortable because she was only 13. Mia cried and said that’s why she doesn’t wear glasses either. I’ve been crying for a long time, “wrote a user on Twitter.
“God, all women have an experience that Mia Khalifa told us for wearing glasses, that shows how much porn fucks men,” says another.
“The last TikTok that Mia Khalifa uploaded has me devastated. He stopped wearing his glasses because he no longer wanted the girls to be told, “Oh, you look like a porn actress in those positions,” and that hurts a lot. How do we tell him that it is not his fault? Come dear, I’ll take care of you ”, analyzed @faithtaIes.
now that I remember in secu, those of a generation above told me that I looked like Mía Khalifa because of my glasses and wey I did not know who I was until some friends explained to me and it was the most uncomfortable thing in the world, and the worst is What if it happens to me that they compare me a lot with porn actresses

They say that the porn industry does not harm, that women are there by choice.
Translation: “no, I can’t wear my glasses because the dudes say I look like Mia Khalifa with them and it makes me uncomfortable” “I was only 13 years old”
