Beauty Makeup! I get a lot of hate for wearing makeup. Is about expressing yourself, not about limiting yourself. But how often have you felt that have to wear it a certain way or tone it down so society doesn’t judge you? Makeup is about freeing yourself, not imprisoning yourself. But how often have you felt like you have to put on makeup before you go out, even if it’s just to the store? Makeup is about uniting us in diversity. But you can see its fracture and division everywhere as it creates a fabricated gender gap.
Ridiculous “beauty” standards have instilled a huge amount of insecurity into many people. Makeup should be something that enables you to express yourself more effectively and freely. You should never feel uncomfortable to go out into public without makeup on.
This absolutely goes for men that wish to use it as well.
The idea that makeup is only for women is a total lie and a tool for division. There are no fixed gender roles. In ancient Egypt it was acceptable for men to wear makeup, they created cat-eye designs, and green eyeshadow, and lip and cheek stains were popular. Do you know how often I get judged for wearing eyeliner, nail polish, and even having long hair? Many people even refuse to listen to what I have to say simply for wearing makeup. Not only does this show their small-mindedness and disdain for anything that challenges their preconceived notions of what’s acceptable.
But it also shows that people are prone to take content less seriously when it’s associated with anything in their minds that they have labeled as feminine. Which clearly demonstrates the huge problem of psychological gender inequality. What a sick culture.
Raise your middle fingers to those unevolved animals. Don’t take their shit and don’t play their game. Use makeup as a tool for your liberation and the expression of your individuality and power.
