Well, I think it is one thing to say you want to be around people who expose themselves completely to you
, and quite another to say you think
they should expose themselves to all others.
Tell me this- would you say that to your daughter?
YOU might be kind and compassionate, but do you imagine everyone is?
You might be a very tall and very strong male who can defend himself physically,
but what about small and weaker young females?
Is it somehow virtous to let others abuse you?
Now, I have fully grey hair that I keep that way (despite all the pressure from my entourage, even my own husband, to color it) and like I said, make
up isn't a choice for me now, and I am old and ugly and do not try to hide it.
But once I was deformed with boils on my face, and they hurt, and I was young and sensitive and people were very, very cruel. Not only do I feel no
shame that I learned to call their attention less with some carefully crafted make up, but I will defend the right of other young people to choose to
share their most vulnerable parts ONLY with people they trust. Maybe when they are old, have gotten tougher, they will expose it all publicly. But I
see no reason anyone should feel it somehow better to become the target of bullies and creeps.
Besides that point about people with deformities, there's the other one I made, about self expression- the colors one is wearing influence the image
one communicates. So when , for example, one is expressing a joyful mood with touches of gold and peach, it is an open sharing of ones mood and
emotions... that is the not hiding. Though make up could be used to hide one self, it can also be used to more clearly communicate oneself as well.
Big block moral judgements often fall short of their idealistic expectations.
