ok, so i’ve been hearing this little story on the news the past few hours… and it plain ol pisses me off…

makeup makes women appear more competent??? WTF??

i wear little to no makeup… mostly i wear no makeup… if i do makeup it’s a bit of powder, some neutral shadow on the sagging lids and a swipe of mascara… that’s it… carmex on the lips… and i really only do that about once a month maybe…

i hate makeup, despise it, loathe the process of putting it on… i can’t stand the way it makes my face feel, and the money spent on it…

so i’m perceived as being less competent? less trustworthy? passed over on a job because i wear no makeup?

i don’t think that i should have to put on a mask and transform who i am in order to be found competent and trustworthy… i think that is a very harsh judgement that has been perpetuated by the media… and it pisses me off

take me as i am… plain and simple…

Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.

  1. I’m 50 and a woman. Makeup isn’t going to help my competency

  2. Well I must be a very incompetent person – darn it.

  3. I think it depends on the job. Sometimes one is required to wear a dress or a suit or office attire, and then I think one would look more ‘put together’ with at least a little make-up on. Some blush and lipstick and mascara. Otherwise, I’m all for going barefaced, except for a bit of lip gloss (my lips get dry).

  4. But of course it does…….and big boobs make women appear sexier, and blonde hair dumber…etc etc….I stopped reading this crap ages ago.

  5. And given the MS shakes in my hands I now have, who knows where the makeup would wind up. I know I gave up mascara when I kept sticking the brush in my eye. And I too almost never wear any makeup.
    That is an infuriated idea. Grrr.

  6. Well damn, ya ugly old broad, why don’t you stop beating around the bush and tell us how you REALLY feel about it?????

    Hahahahaa, oh man, I crack myself UP!!!!

    I can’t hardly stand to read articles on things like that anymore. They are all full of shit and worthless life wastes.

    *mwah*!!! Gorgeous!!!!!
