More than two thirds of employers admit they would be less likely to employ a female job applicant if she did not wear makeup to the job interview.
my boss explicitly told me that it’s lucky i femmed up before i started working where i do, because she probably wouldn’t have liked me in my former, butch state. like she straight-up told me that. with her words. to my face.
i work at a staffing/recruitment agency. my boss is a recruiter. we are in the business of hiring people.
So let’s talk about how the fact that it’s very specific forms of femininity that’s held up as ideal impacts the lives of women in every imaginable way.
And the thing is, while I support anyone’s right to be as femme as they want, I continue to be puzzled that white, conventionally-attractive women who like to present that way continue to claim that they do so in some kind of cultural vacuum—that they neither were influenced by culture in their desire to do so, nor reap any rewards from it. Wear that “nude” makeup and cute-but-not-too-daring dress if you like, rock the hell out of it, but don’t go pretending that it’s magically set apart from everything else in society just because it also happens to make you feel good.
Question with 9 notes
merrywrath said: What is beauty? This question has puzzled scholars and scientists for centuries, but this afternoon while making a fresh cup of coffee I had a spiritual epiphany which answers the question. Beauty is when my lips are wearing dark red lipstick and leaving marks on an area of Blixa Bargeld which is only mentioned in whispers whilst fully aroused. Do you agree with the image revealed to me by heaven itself?
I think you’ll have to compete with a lot of people who thought it was their lips that should be leaving marks on Blixa Bargeld’s personal regions!
i want black matte lipstick that is so, so, so matte that it absorbs all light and, after a while, all matter, and my mouth eventually consumes and destroys the entire universe
