I had to update my blog, we will have a whole week worth of sun, starting today!! I am so excited! The tempretures won’t be super high but at least it will warmer than it has been.
I also wanted to write about being perceived as a dyke when I am straight. I had a young man accuse me of being that today. Maybe it’s because I find make up artificial & fake. But thanks to Hollywood the perception is that IF you don’t wear make up you must be Gay. What a bunch of BS.
I am happily married to a man! So, what he was teaching his sister was wrong plus I find that guys check me out because I don’t look like a goose lipped doll. I like looking natural, to me that’s me being authentic to myself. I like some make up now & then but I don’t wear it everyday.
Like a friend of mine said in the US, I am liberated woman & I am. However, how that guy taught his sister is wrong. It could damage her for the rest of her life. If she thinks she has to fit into a Hollywood stereotype!
That’s damaging in so many ways. So, next time you judge someone because they’re not wearing make up ask yourself can YOU go without make up or has become so ingrained in your own self esteem that you have to wear it everyday. Cause I don’t & I am comfortable as is.
