WILL YOU SIT PROPERLY
The Twitter Mandela Hall Of Shame
Make-up is fucking scary
Makeup is a fantastic artform.
I wonder how long that takes to put on, and remove.
Not to mention the rest of the make up work.
I’m not anti-makeup at all; I definitely think it can be an art form. But I wish there were not so much pressure on women to not go out in public “without my face on.” I’m one of those people who can’t be bothered unless it’s a date, job interview, or wedding.
I just wish this sort of thing was talked about more. These women all look like women you see on the bus or in the coffee shop etc. Still beautiful women but with makeup on they look almost like different people. Most of us have an idea that people wear makeup and that can change how you appear (there is nothing wrong with that express yourself however you see fit) but a lot of us compare ourselves to illusions.
What we aren’t aware of (at least in day to day life) is how drastically makeup or photoshop can change your looks. The young women who are influenced by magazines strive for body shapes and faces that are illusions. Thats not to say those body types or that beauty doesn’t exsist at all or is wrong or even that the photoshopping is wrong just that we need to be more transparent about it in the media. Low self esteem sells products.
Its all an art form that someone painstakingly worked on. It needs to be treated as more of an art form rather than this is what these people really look like and you’re abnormal if you don’t strive for that kind of beauty.
I wish the media would stop giving us the message(subtle or blatant) that this is how everyone should look. Not everybody *wants* to be a certain size or look a certain way. That old saying beauty is in the eye of the beholder is true. It doesn’t mean you are jealous or hateful if thats not what you find attractive.
I’m tired of seeing the same stuff on tv or advertisements mags etc. diversity is beautiful, contrast is beautiful. Different sizes colours of skin are all beautiful.
There is nothing wrong with getting implants or wearing makeup, doing your nails, or photoshopping if you do it because YOU want to. Its not ok when you do it for anybody but yourself. You should never do something because you feel you have to in order to appear more attractive to others at least thats just how I feel anyways choose to agree or disagree with that statement.
These industries are so fickle and are so quick to judge on race and size projecting white beauty standards on all races. We the consumer often fail to see the beauty and magnificence of that contrast. The contrast of many races the spledor of the human race as a whole entity not as a pick and choose what is and isn’t beautiful. We are all different that is not something to be afraid or judgemental of it’s something to appreciate.
Sorry that was quite a long rant.
guys, this stuff needs to stop. in my year of being on tumblr i have seen countless posts like this one, saying “if i get [instert number of reblogs/likes/w/e] then i wont hurt/kill myself.” this is emotional manipulation and it is wrong.
first off, you are pressuring people you dont even know into doing something that means ultimately nothing. you are making people feel like if they dont reblog this you may do something rash and it will be their fault. the title, the first sentace, everything bout this is wrong and manipulative. doing stuff like this is often what classifies people as “poisonous”.
Another thing wrong with this post is that it is based on what some awful person said and they used what the other person said to make a bet of sorts. betting on people’s feelings is awful and you are guilt tripping them to win. i know that this person probably feels like shit, but to even consider turning this into a petty competition is amazingly shitty.
this is emotional manipulation, this is wrong and you are pressuring people to try to make yourself happy. its ok to want people to comfort you, but to threaten hurting yourself like this is awful and you are a terrible person for thinking it is ok.
if you are someone who does this then you are an awful person. Notes on a post on a dumb site mean nothing, what you are doing is manipulative and terrible. as a protip: if you feel like people dont care for you then talk to people you actually know, chances are they will say something they mean.
THANK YOU YES. I HAVE BEEN SAYING THIS.
I don’t have a problem with people using tumblr for emotional support at all and I encourage people to reach out to other bloggers for help and advice but this “if I get so many notes” thing is definitely emotional manipulation.
I almost cried when I saw this part. This is what you do. You don’t continue on your way because it doesn’t involve you.
Look at the way she shields the stranger WITH HER OWN BODY.
This is what needs to happen when you see someone being bullied or harassed.

Misogynoir and Asian women fetishization rampant in these results
Bottom line: it’s good to be a white man
reasons why we tell people to think critically about their race based preferences.
