haha for real though, cishet men who are put off by makeup because they think women are “lying to them”. you just sound SUPER PISSED that makeup is an artform that allows people to carefully control how their faces are presented and perceived, and if there’s one thing cishet men CANNOT stand it’s when women are the ones controlling exactly how and when their faces and bodies are made available AND/OR when women behave like authorities on how they should look instead of allowing dudes to dictate what is and isn’t appealing. makeup culture must piss you off so much. like, that girl with two layers of falsies and three shades of contour could look like a totally different person beneath her makeup and that terrifies you. “women are lying to us” reads to me like “makeup allows people to control how i perceive them, often with total disregard to what i consider attractive, and i don’t LIKE them having that power over their own bodies.”
I think I might I’ve read all Pacific Rim related post on internet and this quote give me so many feels. Guillermo del toro is such a great guy. I should start to work on real life, but Pacific Rim is way much better.
I feel like we need a lot more of this in media. Because it’s true, that’s why.
