Here is a thing that bothers me a lot: guys who say that women (be they specific or be they women AT LARGE) wear too much make-up.
I just saw this tweet on my timeline:
Nope! Nope, I won’t allow it. I get it as a joke, whatever, even though it is not a GREAT one. As Rylee pointed out, it’s like saying that if I see you with gel-spiked hair at the gym, I can assume you wear a wig to work. Ha, ha. Whatever!
I get why people say that other people shouldn’t wear make-up to the gym, because it IS a little counter intuitive to dress up in tight, stretchy clothes and make-up just before sweating and breathing heavily a lot. (Though: isn’t this what people do before sex? Huh.) It’ll get ruined and come off anyway! These people, I think, believe they are making a practical (and even benevolent) suggestion. Nobody should feel as though they have to wear make-up to the gym, sure, but it isn’t doing anyone any favors to act as though adult humans can’t make that decision for themselves.
