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.

The City Lights

So today, if I actually publish this post when I originally intended to, is October 8th, and today is a full moon. This is great… woo…  a full moon in a starry sky I can barely see because it is blinded by city lights. When I open my window tonight to look at the beautiful moon all I will be able to hear is the constant rumble of traffic going past my house, drunk guys shouting, and the club over the road playing terrible pop music, or it will be karaoke night, so I will need earplugs.

I have written enough points for you to probably guess what I am going to say. Well you are wrong. In this world… this terrible 21st century world… why must we always forget about the little things? Whilst everyone is worrying about work, school, college, relationships, friendships, or whatever we worry, or get excited about, we always forget that all this stress we have, no other species really experiences these kind of emotions.

When humans first came about, we were primitive, and we only really knew how to eat, sleep, shit, and fuck. That was it. That was all of human life in a nutshelf for ages. Now look how far we have come. Wow. Admittedly, looking at rushing traffic, actually can be nice. Not from my window though, but when I went to the States, I actually liked looking at the traffic. It was relaxing, in a weird way, and so was the noise. Almost hypnotic. However, in our busy little lives which we lead, we forget about the natural beauty. Even today, I enjoy looking up to the sky once a month, and seeing the shining moon, and his glistening star companions looking back down upon me. In these moments, you realize how small you are, and you feel worthless (check out tomorrows post for more about this). Yet these moments come so infrequently. In fact, almost never.

I don’t like going out of my house at night, going atop a hill and gazing up into the nights sky. Those of you who are reading this that don’t know me may think I sound like an old codger but I am not. I am actually quite young. Those of you that do know me may think I am not the kind of guy to go out and sit on a hill staring at the sky, but if I could I would, I just don’t. Why not? Well, crime is like crazy here in Birmingham, UK. Just walk outside at night for about ten minutes and you will see a gang of chavs looking like they want to start a fight. No matter where you go, there are always some. This is what makes me not want to go out. Yeah I am motherfucking scared and I am proud of not wanting to fight.

So to summarize, I wish I could see the sky.

Thanks for reading, fellow old codgers.
