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.
Okay, screw that guy. Both sided are absolutely gorgeous. A woman(AND MAN) has EVERY right to feel beautiful: With a lot of dazzling, dramatic makeup, or with a completely naked face. It’s comments like that guys^^ that made it hard for me to believe I was pretty without makeup. I wore makeup every single day, even if I wasn’t going anywhere. I would NEVER let anyone see me without it. I thought I was ugly. But I’m not. I’m gorgeous. And, god bless, I’ll be damned if I’m going to pass by some nerdshirt shaming a gorgeous girl for be beautiful in EVERY WAY. This goes for guys too. I know a lot of guys who wear makeup like pros, and people tell them to “be a man” and take it off. Screw them. Makeup is not a MASK that only women should be forced to wear, or a symbol of being fake. Makeup is a hobby. An art. An accessory.
Imagine women telling you to wear a suit everyday for the rest of your life just to be “considered” attractive, and then say how bad you look without it. Then, when you do wear the suit everyday, women get so appalled to see you without it, and call you a LIAR. OR, you start to get labels like “pretentious” or “fake” cause you wear the suit all of the time. OR maybe you LIKE wearing the suit, and women try to tell you, “you don’t have to dress like that for me” or “I like you better without the suit”.
Do you seeeeee the problem here.
This is how you shed the Disney image.
This looks really good.
This looks SO GOOD!

I know, six months late to the party, my mind is still blown. All US presidents except Martin van Buren are descended from John Lackland Plantagenet. Yes, that John Lackland Plantaganet. Yes, all US presidents as of 2013.

they didn’t need to animate that. but they did. and it’s just really nice.
so freaking beautiful
The big issue, and this is something that others on here have mentioned, is that women are generally not seen for their brain. Women are taken as beautiful creatures. Women are seen for their bodies. That is the role that men in society give women, it’s the only role they think women can play, and it’s one of the only roles they ever give them.
For the women who do this in the media, it’s not always only because they choose to. Some women (could be all of these give or take a few, I don’t know) do this because it’s the only way they can get ahead. Because lets face it, a woman’s life in society and the unrealistic expectations posed on women is/are much harder than for a man. And this stems from the role that men place for women in society, which I talked about earlier.
And that role in turn also plays a huge part in girls’ development as well, because this ‘definition’ of a woman is pushed so much that that’s what the girls learn from a very young age (from the media and even from their parents)…to hide their sexuality and be incredibly vulnerable while they’re young and to not explore it, and then when they’re older that it’ll be mostly their body that gets them ahead in life, because they won’t be valued very much for anything else, like oh, I don’t know, intelligence. And yes, it’s been shown that way too, because women get lower pay than men do in almost all fields. They are valued less. This is shown in woman politicians not being able to voice their opinions as freely as men politicians can, or they can voice their opinion as much as they want but they won’t be heard, or respected, or valued. This is shown in actresses getting the dumb questions in media interviews like “Did you have to watch your figure a lot to prepare for this movie?” while the men get things like “How often could you really relate to your character, and in what ways?”.
And this whole thing of women = bodies
is also, as I mentioned, playing a role in girls’ development. How many times have you heard moms when their daughters were young say that they need to be ‘young ladies’, or that they need to be dressed elegantly and in dresses because that’s the most feminine and because being pretty is super important? I can tell you from personal experience (I am a girl) that I’ve heard that a ton. Even when we’re young, we are dressed by our mothers like dolls, to look like, what it is to them, as ‘the prettiest version of ourselves’ when in actuality it is just the stereotypical version of an über feminine woman. That does happen to girls when they’re young. Some girls when they’re young are even more restricted, to only wear clothes that are ‘mom-approved’, and usually (again, speaking from personal experience) super feminine. If a girl chooses to not be that way, she is shunned.
Yeah, women have to live up to bullshit high expectations. For a woman in a society that mostly has men in positions of power, their bodies matter more than their brains do, and the only way for a woman to even look pretty is to be extremely feminine. And even then if they do look extremely feminine, they still aren’t listened to, or respected in the way they deserve. If we show off our bodies because we chose to, we are shunned, and people believe we have no self-respect, or we have self-confidence issues. If we chose to cover up, we have limited options to do so (body over brain), and we are still judged heavily for our looks. If we chose to conform to society’s archetype of a feminine woman, we are looked at but highly scrutinized and judged, mostly for our looks. If we chose to follow what a man tells us to do and we make ourselves really feminine so we can get our opinions out there, that still doesn’t happen. Changing our appearance is shown to get more men looking at us, but for all the wrong reasons, we still don’t get respect. We just can’t win.
