Women Shouldn’t Have To Wear Makeup

So I am sort of a feminist. I mean, I have never thought about it until over the last few days, but I believe in equal rights, I believe in equal pay, equal opportunities, so how am I not a feminist? I also know I gained a good few of my followers from my previous posts about women, and how they are degraded in everyday life, so I thought I would continue the trend with todays post about why women should not have to wear makeup.

Women are forced to wear makeup in todays society. It is literally compulsory. If you don’t you are seen as ugly by most other women and men. It is just how the world works. It shouldn’t be this way, but it is. Society has engrained this idea of the ‘perfect’ women with her hourglass figure, highlighted features, and perfect skin. This isn’t the perfect women. Why? Because there is no perfect woman. In fact, what is seen by society to be the perfect woman is perhaps as far from perfect as you can get.

Let’s think. To achieve and maintain this ‘perfect’ image you need to starve yourself most of the time, or binge eat. You need to draw around or on your face with a pen for no real good reason, you need to add color to your skin, again for no reason, and finally you need to burn your hair into a style seen as attractive using straighteners or curlers.

What on earth made people think that is attractive? Whoever invented makeup is stupid. When I went on my first date with my current girlfriend I actually said to her ‘don’t wear makeup because I want to see your natural beauty’. Of course, she refused, but she refused because she doesn’t want the judgemental eyes of society thinking she is unattractive when in actual fact, if you have the guts to go out of your house with no makeup on, that means you have confidence in your natural beauty, and you don’t need to go out in a mask of makeup.

So ladies, why not go out with no makeup on, and show people yourself? And men, why not appreciate your girlfriends real looks, instead of her fake looks? If you tell a girl she is beautiful with no makeup on, I think that is one of thr biggest compliments you can give a girl.

Too Skinny, Too Fat, It Doesn’t Matter!!!

So, I always seem to start my articles with the word so even though it isn’t grammatically correct. I should probably stop doing that. Anyway, this article is going to be about how different cultures view weight, and why it really doesn’t matter how much you weight.

In certain countries, and several hundred years ago, being overweight was seen as something attractive about someone. It meant that they had enough money to eat a lot of food, and that meant that they could provide for you, and therefore they began to be seen as attractive. My question is, what the hell changed? Why is being skinny promoted everywhere now? How did it start? Well this can all be traced back to March of 1959 when ‘Mattel’ first originally started distributing ‘Barbie’. This doll had an impossible shape. A woman with a body so ‘perfectly shaped’ that movies began to follow this figure during the 1960’s so that the women in them who wore bikinis and other similar items of clothing looked just like it.

This continued throughout the 1970s as more and more models became drug users, and continued looking like this because of it. This furthermore inspired clothing designers to create slim fitting outfits, for which they needed slim models, not only to fit the clothes, but also because the camera tends to distort those on it, making people look like they have more weight then they really do, so ‘the skinnier the better’. This trend continued throughout the 80s, right up until the modern day, except now we have the media pressing this ‘perfect body’ idea into people, and making men think that it is good to have a slim girl, so they are brainwashed into wanting one, and since men now also want slim women, the women want to look desirable. So the circle continues.

I do not like repeating things that others regularly say, however it is the only thing I CAN say for this topic. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I know guys who like overweight women. I know girls that like overweight men. I know guys that like girls with shaved heads! At the end of the day, for every person out there, there are over a hundred people who find that person attractive, I guarantee it.

On top of all of this, there are the people that see beauty differently, and I know that what I am about to say is true. You can meet someone who ‘isn’t your type’ or who you wouldn’t usually date. Then you can talk to them. You begin to see how much of a great person they are, and then suddenly, you start to look at them differently. Slowly you start thinking “Actually, they look pretty damn hot!” and then you find yourself fantasizing about having sex with them in the middle of the woods, or whatever it is that you imagine doing. That is happened to me, just not the fantasizing about having sex with them in the woods…. no it was a train for me.

In all seriousness however, looks aren’t everything, and there are less and less people who share the same views as me it seems. In this sick and twisted society that we have come to live in nowadays, where the media rules, and crime is on the rise, there are so little people with good morale views, and people who actually see the world as it should be seen. Just because someone is a little overweight, or has a big neck, or six toes on a foot, that doesn’t stop them from being attractive, and no matter what, this doesn’t kill the beauty that is on the inside of that person. That is the real beauty.
