Weekends are when I have time to reply.
Unless I don't feel like replying to anybody on a weekend. Just because. That happens sometimes.
So there's stuff to unpack here.
I'm personally not a fan of girls donning tons of makeup where they look like a clown.
OTOH, kratt outed my inspiration vid for my initial post, which was a suggested vid I clicked made by a gender-clouding female whose negative opinion of girls liking makeup is *cancelled* by her pre-existent disdain for expressions of femininity by girls.
On the SECOND otherhand, I hate the idea of anyone being robbed by corporations selling overpriced crap to people, ESPECIALLY to kids.
And so, as such, it seems to be a topic actually worth discussion in spite of both angry feminist/gender-warrior types, and clueless superficial glamour types.. arguing with one another.
There exists something deeper going on here.
For whatever reason, I am remembering Vanity Fair trotting out Thylane Blondeau on their cover for shameless publicity. In my mind it was like 3 years ago, but I am becoming that old person I used to notice and laugh at, who references things as recent which actually happened some time ago. So be it. I don't care so much about accuracy so long as the points manage cross the divide.
I will always be on the side of the world. There are boys. There are girls.
True girls like to be pretty, especially for true boys. How they achieve that is forever up for debate, between the people who want to make money from their innate desire, and those who call it out for what it really is... *EVEN* if they believe females wanting to be attractive to males is actually normal, healthy, and productive to the continuation of the human species.
