the fact that I didn’t catch this immediately makes me question my lisa simpson/willam fandom
You’re welcome. I put it in like an Easter Egg to everyone.
can we please stop treating high school drop outs like they’re the scum of the earth that’ll never amount to anything?? because it’s fucking tiring and rude and gross. it’s not the end of the world and school is not for everyone
Screamin’ Jay Hawkins - I Put a Spell on You (1956)
A couple of girls came into my work the other day and one of them shared a story with me that absolutely floored me. She’s currently at the Salon Professional Academy trying to become a stylist and she showed up one day without makeup on because she had had a family emergency that morning and they asked her if she was “impaired” and SENT HER HOME because of it. Fucking insanity. She’s now too embarrassed to go back and is contemplating a new career path because she was SHAMED for not wearing makeup. This is the world we live in.
so are we gonna discuss how fucked up it is that women have to wear makeup to be taken seriously at work and job interviews but if a woman has a genuine interest in and enjoyment of cosmetics she is written off as shallow, vain, and stupid, and consequently not taken seriously
Could we also talk about how cosmetic products are also marketed exclusively to women, for whys? You’re a guy that wants to wear it? Why! We better beat you up ans call you gay, that’ll show you!
sorry friends i can’t go out this weekend because i’ll be at the gym all day
