Though it may seem a bit silly that a photo about freckles is going viral and making such an impact, young women everywhere have a problem with their dark spots. And there are other women who wish they had freckles so badly (we have Meghan Markle to thank for the latest rush) that they're having them tattooed on.
Esther Walker for The Telegraph explained the hatred of freckles to a point: "I've been stared at (not usually admiringly) all my life...Freckled girls have been brought up to consider their spots so negatively that we can just about believe that people might learn to like them or forgive us for them, but actually like them for what they are? That's just perverted."
Even actress Julianne Moore used her experience being mocked for her freckles to write a series of children's books: "Freckleface Strawberry," the name her classmates bestowed upon her as a kid, about a girl who tries to erase her freckles to avoid ridicule.
Moore and her daughter seem equally invested in letting the freckles fly, as evidenced by photos like this one from her Instagram account.
