i would never ever be MAD at someone for wearing makeup, but like why is there SO MUCH FOCUS on a woman’s right and ability to wear makeup and how ~radical~ it is to wear makeup … and how you should wear makeup to show how much of a real woman you are blah blah the list goes on…
when thats always been the fucking norm, women are told they look unprofessional without makeup and dont get jobs without wearing it, or they’re fired for not wearing it, women are never portrayed in media without wearing makeup, female politicians are always encouraged to wear makeup and ostracized when they dont, women are mocked and harassed when they don’t wear makeup women are shunned when they dont wear it. etc.
yall can point all day to twitter users who are like “i prefer a woman without makeup” but at the end of the day their reference photo for a woman without makeup is just a woman with “natural” makeup on. They simply don’t want to hear or notice that work goes into performing femininity.
like… why is there such a focus on supporting something that’s already encouraged by society …. when we could also [as in at the same fucking time] support women who ARENT wearing makeup and not doing things they have been told they should be doing since forever.
again, not saying “hey don’t wear makeup” but … saying … maybe support women who don’t wear makeup, or can’t wear makeup just as much as you support women who do wear it? and maybe not fucking PRESSURE people to do something they don’t want to or can’t do?
