This is why you cant trust women, even when theyre mouth is closed theyre still lying to you
you do realize that this is really hurtful right?
i did not do this to show how i am ‘lying’ to men or anyone, it’s not about how you, as a man, should feel about it - it’s about myself.
to me your statement sounds as if the left side of this picture is something awful or horrible. and no, it’s not. it is my face - with and without makeup. and whether i chose to wear it or not is MY AND JUST MY decision. and when i do, i do it for myself - so that i feel good about myself - not for you.
First of all, someone needs to take a break from their Hate Juice: Female Edition. Second of all-
Generally speaking in today’s world, people, women especially, are expected to be aesthetically pleasing to the rest of world one hundred percent of the time, but what we were born with is never good enough. Not by a long shot. So to compensate, we wear makeup. We dye our hair, pluck our brows, wax our bikini lines and shave our legs. We wear push-up bras, things that suck our fat in, and high heels to give our calves better definition and make us taller. It’s not enough anymore to just look kept up or clean cut, but we are now expected to be on the same level as the photoshopped celebrities on the cover of magazines.
Other women know, I guess because they partake in the same rituals, that it’s just a mask. Men, however, always seem to be shocked and outraged the first time they see a woman without all of these things. Scorpswimmer says that we’re lying and implies that we are untrustworthy because it makes us look different, but that is literally the point. It’s meant to make you look different. All of that stuff, it’s sole purpose is to change and enhance and cover up.
I hear a lot of people, men especially, say something like: “I like the natural look.” Except they don’t really mean that. The ‘natural’ look is not natural. In reality, natural is the left side of this photo- which, by the way, is still pretty- but what we mean when we say ‘the natural look’ is a boatload of foundation and cover up and earth tones instead of bright colors for the rest of our makeup. We still, eventually, have to take all of that off and you’re still left with what’s underneath.
Then people ask why we just don’t wear it, and on one front the answer is achingly simple: we’re considered less of a person if we don’t. We become instantly lazy if we don’t take the time to make ourselves look good for other people (the majority of which have and will never have any stake in our lives), which translates to other parts of our lives as well. Obviously if I don’t spend 45+ minutes applying make-up, despite my intelligence or drive or overall appearance otherwise, I must not care and be incompetent and unable to do my job or get by in life.
That being said, not everyone wears a full face of make-up one hundred (or even like ten) percent of the time. I work full-time and in January will be back to a full-time college schedule as well. I can tell you right now that the most anyone will get out of me for next three months to two years will be some mascara and chap-stick and a poorly executed pony-tail. I have no one to impress and will be too tired to give any shits about what other people think of my appearance outside of work for the most part. There may the rare occasion where, similar to cumber-hiddles I decide to spend a little time on myself for myself, but I can promise you that it will be entirely selfish. I have no time now, let alone will I then, for people who base their opinions on me on the zit on my forehead or the freckles on my nose or the circles under my eyes. That stuff doesn’t make you less of a person, but in fact more human, and I think it’s really sad that being human isn’t good enough now days.
You’re not being very kind to the janitor who has to clean this shit off the door.
I’ve decided to take a break from homework, and instead put together a compilation of some of my favorite typography puns. If you guys can come up with more I would love to create a whole series.
