I was at the doctors office this morning and stumbled across an article in a trash magazine titled, Stars Without Makeup. I was flipping through the
rag waiting the typical,1 hour plus to see the doctor. For some reason this article has me borderline enraged. I came home and tracked down screen
shots to illustrate.
The pictures come complete with captions about how the women would look better with a bit of mascara/lipstick. How sad is this culture? Sure, these
women are celebrities, blah, blah, blah; people will say how much they hate Kim Kardashian anyways, but they're still people with feelings.
Not only that. Say you go to the doctors office, you've been feeling depressed. Maybe you're a new mother and you don't have a lot of time to
primp. You read trash like this, and you're likely to feel even more crappy than before.
Especially middle aged women. The article shows pictures of women 30+ who look "horrid" without makeup, and then there is a blurb box showing women
under 30 who look "pretty" without make up. No wonder so many women are terrified of aging.
F&$@ publications like this, and the media culture in general.
And, this isn't the patriarchy ladies. Women are by and far the buyers of trash like this. Why do this to yourself? If you're super confident and
this type of crap would never affect you...it's still pretty sh&$ reading material.
Fellow women, I hope you know you're fine wether you have a pound of make up on, or you hate wearing make up. Live for yourself, because otherwise
you can never win.
