tinfoil-hat maggie: Didn't we just have a nearly 500 post misogyny thread?


discussing women's behavior in a way that does not treat them like flawless gods = misogyny

AverageAmericanGuy: I'm gonna go against the grain here and just thank the ladies for wearing makeup. No matter how good you may look without it, you look much better with properly applied makeup.

I've gotta disagree.  I much prefer a girl without any makeup at all.  Imperfections are what make us "Real", trying to hide them just comes across as either dishonest or as a lack of self-esteem.  Be proud of who you are, don't try to hide it; it's WAY more attractive.

Of course a majority of men say they prefer women without makeup then every time someone does a study showing them pictures of women with and without makeup, the overwhelming choose the with pictures as being more attractive. The truth is the vast majority of men prefer women who are good at applying makeup to create a "natural" look, and women are well aware of this.

EngineerAU: Other than for a small handful of jobs that require it, I don't get why women complain about makeup and uncomfortable shoes. No one (except the very few previously mentioned jobs) is forcing them to wear them. It's a choice.


If you don't wear it, people think there is something wrong with you. They'll come up with that you're lazy/frump/lesbo/loser/nerd/depressed/backwards/unfriendly/weird etc. Wear make up all the time and then the time you don't, people ask questions like "Is something wrong? You look sick." You grow up with the image that proper grown up women wear heels, nylons, skirts, make-up, and jewelry and that those are the marks of being feminine and likeable. So there's women who think they have to do it because it's expected and if they don't, it means something is wrong with them, even though they don't like it.

It's a choice, yes, one can choose to wear hiking boots and a hoodie because they're comfortable. But don't expect to be treated as well as the woman in full make-up and the perfect ladylike outfit.

I love it when pretty girls don't wear makeup. I have no opinion on butt-ugly girls

gweilo8888: Well, clearly a poll about makeup application time sponsored by a company whose business is semi-permanent makeup will be completely unbiased and 100% factual.

Tomorrow from the Sun: BREAKING NEWS!! People with unpierced ears get laid less often, says poll sponsored by ear piercing company.


Incidentally, ten seconds of maths says TFA is total bullshiat.

The average woman in the UK lives to 81.68 years of age. Even if you assume she applies makeup every day from the age of ten and never misses a day, that's 71.68 years of makeup use, at 365.25 days per year.

TFA claims 474 days applying makeup (average, mind you, which means half the female population spends MORE days on this task). So that's 474 out of 26181.12 days. That is 1.81% of every day of their entire life from their tenth birthday, without missing a single day.

Which means it is 0.43 hours of every day, or 26 minutes every day, from the age of ten to the age of 81.68 years.

Which is quite clearly total bullshiat. In the real world, they're claiming probably more like an hour or more for each makeup application, by the time you account for the fact that they don't start on a daily basis from ten years old, dont do it to the day they die, don't do it every day of their adult lives without fail, and don't spend the same time on it when they're 70 and crippled by arthritis in an old folks home that they did when they were 20 and out for a night on the pull.

I know it's the Sun, but seriously... Even for the Sun, what complete and utter moronic drivel.

I'd like anyone to say this isn't worth an hour of prep time for a long night out:

You say you're annoyed this topic seems to an endless fount of blather?

Not so cool when the shoe's on the other foot, is it?
