Don't you ever address me as "babe" again. That was entirely inappropriate, and is a big clue that you've got some pretty big lessons left to learn when it comes to treating women and girls with respect.


sorry i didn't think it was bad

Every girl does not do this.

When girls do it it is because they like the way it looks or think others like the way it looks.

Sometimes might be to conceal blemishes.

Occasionally it might be that they are heading to or from their clown job.

BTW, your use of the word "paint" is unusual and carries a bit of a negative connotation. We women and girls usually call it "makeup."


sorry babe i learned my lesson

I really wanted to speak up about this, because it really pissed me off, too, but I figured you could take care of yourself.

This, basically. Also, yeah: don't just randomly call women and girls "babe", "sweetie", "doll", "honey", or anything else that might be taken as condescending. There's a time and a place for those sort of nicknames, and this wasn't it.

I didn't start calling people sweet heart or honey until people started doing to me. It feels great, I feel like an old lady lecturing a bunch of kids

It's just a matter of reading context, no need to be too rigid. Nicknames like "sugar" and "darling" are fairly commonly used in some parts of the US and so should be given a bit more slack while there, for instance.

So, any other undating HS/college male teen-misogynistic threads you'd like to make, just so we can get them all out in one thread?

"Girls, do you like have to buy those weird 'hygiene' things at the store every month? Do you really wear that underwear that doesn't have the flap in them, and have to sit down on the toilet? And, like, how do you get one of those bra-things off, they must be like super hard to reach around and unhook?"

(Basically, the questions that a seven-year-old asks when he first discovers that Girls Are Different, only the kids' questions aren't as psychologically resentful.)

You feel better now?

As others have already mentioned, not every female puts on makeup. I for one don't. Never really have and probably never really will unless I have some big occasion to wear it for. Also, I have very sensitive skin and have to be careful what I put on it so that I don't get a rash since I have a chemical allergy to a chemical that can be used as a preservative in makeup, soap, body wash, etc.. This isn't to say that I don't take care of my skin though, which I do try and do. And I've noticed that a lot of the females that I work with or come into contact with while at my job don't usually wear makeup either. I don't know, maybe we're weird up here in Vermont and are the minority in this.

Make up has been used for many many generations.

Some make an art out of it...yes an art. Some wear it occasionally, some do not wear it at all.

The reason why we wear make-up is the same reason some of us wear sexy lingerie for no one to see it. The same reason some get mani/pedi, we get our hair done , take a shower , brush our teeth. ETC you see where I'm going with it.

Everyone has there own likes and dislikes, I wear make up very lightly, eye shadow, blush, eyeliner and mascara. It makes my eyes pop out and I love it! Some woman just really enjoy how putting make-up makes them feel. Doesn't always have to do with self-respect or being self conscious. Woman don't buy sexy lingerie to always show it off...Some buy it just to walk around feeling sexy. Some women don't like the feel of make-up so they don't wear any as well and thats perfectly fine.

Like I said at the beginning though...make-up has been around for so long to know an exact reason as to why woman do it..is almost impossible since everyone does it or doesnt do it for there own reasons!

Usually it is to conceal blemishes and stuff. Also, if you don't wear makeup at all you often won't get hired for a job, will be looked down upon etc. I think its because as a society everyone expects girls to wear at least a little makeup, whether you realize it or not. I think it depends too. For some it is to help conceal their age, most to conceal blemishes (especially since us girls have a monthly hormonal cycle, some are more prone to blemishes at certain times of the month) and severe acne scars (which don't always go away), and to overall just look nice. Wearing makeup so others know you take care of yourself a bit, or wearing makeup for a job, or to catch a boy (which doesn't always work you have to know what the boy likes about makeup and what colors appeal to him first to catch a boy best, and all boys are different, and of course, many may not be attracted to the girl anyway). Some girls just like makeup, some just like the beauty of it, similar to painting a picture. For some it is a form of therapy (and yes there is actually a form of therapy called cosmetic therapy), to help them get past PTSD, or depression, or to stay mentally healthy while they are really sick, etc. etc.. For girls makeup can be extremely beneficial in terms of therapy. Some boys who are artsy or have some artistic talent hidden within them may find it useful for therapy too, though of course, mostly girls choose to take cosmetic therapy, so there isn't as much information on it helping boys too yet. And of course, there are those who use makeup because they don't accept themselves. On the opposing side there are those who use makeup because they DO accept themselves. Every girl is different.
But I'm pretty sure most girls use makeup to cover blemishes, for work, or because people tend to ask you if you are sick if you don't wear at least a little bit of makeup
For me, its a combination of all of the above, mostly for my job, covering blemishes and so people don't think I am sick if I don't wear corrective makeup...plus I'm in theatre, and while I remain in the background (my plan, especially since I have a history background) if there is one thing I have learned its to know at least a little bit about everything in the theatre because often things happen (and not jinx anything but there IS a tendency for things to happen opening night), and you never know when you will be called upon to help or actually do something in the middle of a mad rush to finish the show while acting like absolutely nothing is going on so the audience doesn't know your in a mad rush backstage. At least, not until after the show is over.
Also here's a tip: In theatre you might want to know that you will probably need to know ALL types of makeup, or at least read up on them or something. There is Airbrushing, the regular theatre makeup along with the latex and making fake body parts and organs and stuff, and you need to know film/photography makeup as well. This is because often in smaller venues you don't need to use theatre makeup, you can just use regular makeup and the audience will be able to see you just fine as long as its not too much of a fantasy/science fiction play, or the lighting isn't all crazy. And be creative, but don't overdo it, and remember that while you are creative the director and sometimes the producer always has the final say on your makeup. In the U.S. actors often do their own makeup, although some makeup is complicated to where it takes more than one person to apply it. Theatre Makeup Artists often work in film as well as theatre since budgets for theatres in America are typically pretty low and don't always provide for a makeup artist, unless the makeup artist can also do something else in the play that they need, such as acting, lighting design, costume design, etc.. Knowing daily makeup is good too for everyone in general, boys and girls I think. But to each their own.
I'm sorry guys. I wrote a great big book again and went off topic. I just can't help myself sometimes

I love makeup, I don't give a shit. I could care less if people like it or not, I like the way it brings out my eyes and helps hides my uneven skin tone. It enhances my beauty, I wouldn't say I put really heavy makeup like most however.

Face painting, that's cute. I mean ..... some of these really good "face painters" makes thousands of dollars a week just to test their art on someones face.

It's really easy to tell the true definition of face painting, it's when someone doesn't know they are adding unnecessary features to their face. For example really dark/fake looking eyebrows and unrealistically long fake lashes. Either way in my opinion if it makes you happy then just do it, maybe someone digs that (;

Also makeup isn't just for women, men can wear it too.

the amount of aggression in here is insane lol.

you have to admit though makeup is very similar to paint (brushes, color palettes, markers, colored pencils, etc.)
well you don't have to admit but the proof is in the pudding. I often wonder if makeup companies put stuff in their makeup so it'll mess up women's skin, so they'll be forced to buy more makeup to try and cover up whatever the previous makeup did to their skin until theyre trapped in a cycle of wearing makeup for the rest of their lives.

I remember in high school there was this girl that wore so much makeup it looked her face had like no contour. It reminded me of those anonymous masks a little bit. Then there was this time this girl went to give me a hug and it left an imprint of half of her face on my shirt lol

I gotta say though, I am a sucker for those cat wings or whatever theyre called. That ancient egyptian look is so sexy

Don't you ever address me as "babe" again. That was entirely inappropriate, and is a big clue that you've got some pretty big lessons left to learn when it comes to treating women and girls with respect.


This is the gynocentric topic I guess. Well, I'm out of here.

No makeup for me. For one, I find it annoying and kinda itchy. Plus, it's seems way too time consuming when I could be spending my time doing other things like...reading a book or walking my dog or getting a few extra minutes of sleep.
