  • In some cases I find it disrespectful, in other cases artistic.

    Generally, I find it weird and annoying. It is weird because it's abnormal behaviour and it's annoying because it has an imposing element to it. In being weird there must be some silly thoughts or behaviours associated with it which may arouse suspicion of many things. In being imposing, any attempt to stand out has in it the element of challenge. If I were to wear a MAGA hat among a group of liberals it would be the same.

    However, I wouldn't let such things sully my experience of this world. Annoying or not I am generally kind to anyone, as I must be annoying too to somebody. I am more concerned with what is in their head then on their face. Primarily so I can attain useful information and detect threats. If that same person had an interesting mind I wouldn't care.

    I also admire talent, so even if I thought the content of their mind was nothing but silly drama, I wouldn't take that out on the artistic expression if it were good. Although, I may be crude in my expectations. I've seeen much better than this picture.

    Above all else I would have to champion almost anyone from the likes of the mob. My enemies enemies are my friends and it is collectivists and mob minded people whom take priority in persecution and discrimination. Also, I wouldn't care to infinge on anyones activity that doesn't break the non aggressive principle.

    • I don't see how makeup, which is such an insignificant thing would be seen as anoying. It's also not remotely the same as your example. Makeup is a personal thing, self expression, not their to piss of others as you said. It has nothing to do with anyone else. So I don't know how you can compare makeup to political rebellion? Also this is James Charles he's one of the best and most influential makeup artists in the world, go check out his work, there's not a lot of people better than him in the business. But hey, agree to disagree man.

    • The simple truth is that most human beings are boxed into a certain way of thinking before any mental independance can be established. The public at large are going to be totallly unable to perform tge tasks we consider to be neccessary humane such as critical thought and objective reasoning. Like, the times we live in are a marvel of bountifulness and we forget that only a 100yrs ago life was relatively hell for most people. Before that it only got worse and worse. We've crawled from out of a time zone where peoples brains were broken beyond concievability. We still have the remnants and fragments of ancient traditions carved into our culture. We are getting better as we technologically evolve but there's still going to be fragments from the past that caused society to corrupt. These people talk in cookie cutter things because they are subjugated to do so. We've removed the bondage of the slaves only to leave them in a world with no direction. Today the asylum is run by the inmates and the old guard has been removed.

      It really just comes down to conformity, not just the cliche but psychological conformity, the phenemona were the brain develops mechanisms to persuade the conscious to subordinate itself to subconscious percieved threats. Like, when people see a "real conversation" they don't look at the content, they look for symbols associated to punishable wrong think. When talking about religion, people are often compelled to state it's history involving the murderous nature of the crusades, etc. when in fact you may only be using a religious topic as a tangential point expressing a truth relative to aspects of religion.



    • People also defer to sex because sex is reprentational of acceptance. It is also the practice children observe from parents to signify desirability. The meaning and truth of there individual relationships are dismissed and there is only the importance is finding psychological acceptance. One of the reasons is epigenetic in the prevelance of rape during our historical upbring. Where rape among adults, both female and male, were everyday practices onto children and sex was how a child found acceptance away from being a bad child. Another main reason is because of hormonal influence, which is crystalized from these psychological factors.

      But generally its the same nature. Its psychological conformity in action. And we seem to be blind as a society to the concept.

      But, responding to reigning on your temper and thoughts. Sometimes its good. Sometimes its conformist. Emotions are railways that guide our bodily energy into creative thought. Each emotion having a varying nature of creation. Like, when you are grieving a loved one, your thoughts are so complex and the memories so buried that the only way to access such creative thoughts are to put the entire body into a type of reboot. Each emotion can be good, its normal and good to want to punch an evil doer. Its just that you may be under conformist influence and may only be acting under the alter ego of your own opprrssors.

  • As a male cosplayer for a range of things (movie characters, anime characters, game characters etc) I have to generally use quite a lot of makeup to look like those characters as most of them are really that realistic looking. I understand that many people have a negative stance towards guys wearing makeup, I've experienced it myself, but for me personally the support has overwhelmed the negatives and nowadays I don't get too much shit for it anymore. I don't put makeup on a regular basis, only for photoshoots/dance covers, but I don't feel that it's anything that far out of the ordinary anymore.

    • Don't try to spin this. We're not talking about African tribesman painting their faces while they dance around a bonfire. We're talking about males using appearance-altering cosmetics within Western society.

    • I'm not spinning anything, and I'm from Afrika by the way, makeup isn't worn only by 'tribes men'. I don't see the issue of men altering their appearance, using foundation to cover up pimples, or do what they want if it makes them feel better about themselves. Women do it, actors do it, 'tribes men' do it, so why can't men?

  • Personally i think it would be a bad strategy in terms of becoming more attractive to women. Some women will say things like " Its takes bravery to wear make up as a man". But honestly, I dont believe them. I believe that most women would regard a man with make up as insecure about his looks, and insecurity is just way too unattractive. The only time it might be pulled off is in the Goth community.

  • Depends if you are a celebrity or have some skin problems and you want them to be hidden. Back in the 80s it was a fashion for famous men to wear make up, look at Michael Jackson for example. Anyways, 90% of male celebrities wear makeup, they have to look beautiful and young. As for normal men well, I don't wanna see a man wearing makeup.

    • But there's a difference between a guy wearing makeup, to hide acne. VS the guy in the post. That's not to hide acne. That's actually makeup-- mascara, and etc.

    • Yeah I know

  • I'm fine with face paint for whatever event.

    But makeup? That's just weird AF to me. That is the ONE area I might agree with feminists that we have privilege. We don't have to wear makeup. And these guys are volunteering? Strange.

  • I don't really like feminine makeup looks on men, but if it's masculine makeup like how it is on male actors, then sure. I don't mind using concealer or foundation because my face is red, but I wouldn't do anything more than that.

    They have the liberty to do what they're gonna do though, and I have the liberty to dislike it. Sure, I'll lowkey judge them in my mind, but that's about it. I feel a little differently when it comes to drag queens, as drag queens already have the complete look and are fabulous as hell, but I think it's weird when a guy looks like a guy in terms of clothes and hair, but very feminine makeup.

    • And @ all the girls saying "makeup is genderless, you do you uwu"... would *you* date a feminine pansy of a man, or would you rather a man who's strong and masculine? Like I'm being serious. The vast majority of women aren't into that. It's like those guys who get face tattoos, like yes technically you can do what you want, but you *really* shouldn't.

    • @englisc that's genius! Thanks for putting it into words!!

    • Thanks :) no problem.

  • I think it's fine. Especially if they take a little time to practice how make up is applied correctly. I don't see any reason why men shouldn't be able to enhance their face with make up, just as much as women.

    But I have to say, that I would find it weird, if a man that is straight would make themselves look feminine using make up. If I was a man, I would use make up to enhance masculine features instead of feminine.

I personally feel like that makeup is only for stage performance, an editorial photoshoot or something like that that has to do with his profession or hobby. But you know what Iean when I am not a fan of the idea of guys with obvious paint of his face when doing his everyday stuff.
