As a gray haired old lady… this is very true of my experience.

As a straight, middle-aged man who enjoys makeup, it's not the LGBTQ Mafia that's hurling the F-word at me.

Relabel make up as war paint. Fact, historically men wear face paint and make up. Did the 1800's not happen?

100%. Ever since I went bald and started wearing wigs to deal with the boredom of looking the exact same every day, I realized cosmetics for men are actually really fucking fun. I have a hard time believing that men find Khal Drogo or Kratos feminine for their makeup. I guess the solution is be so terrifyingly muscular that remarking negatively on the makeup doesn't seem like such a free lunch anymore.

I don't care what adults do in their free time, but the trend of involving children is not appropriate.

What, that parents are letting their kids watch RuPaul and now the kids are excited to go see live shows?

Fuck off.

It did, but I was remarking on more noticable makeup.

Every man on film, tv, and theater has a makeup artist even if it’s just them.

I, as a cishet man, was a test dummy for my ex’s makeup applications, and I didn’t mind it one bit.

Any man who ever had a daughter whom he cared about has worn makeup. And there's literally nothing more heterosexual than being a father.

Did their "favorite" president not happen? Guy puts on clown makeup every time he's in public, do they pretend that unnatural orange glow is just his skin tone?

Don the mon claims he doesn't wrar bronzer. It is so obvious.

As a Marine in the late 80's we wore camouflage facepaint. I got out in 91 and a year or 2 later this Marine Sargent was on nationwide news, came out as gay. Dude was hard as woodpecker lips, took no shit from anyone. Glad he could finally be himself.

Thought it was called the alphabet mafia?

u/exarkann Sep 23 '22

Where I live they will use that word but in the most affectionate way they can, loudly and with much sass.

And if we do, it's out of love and not because we wish you'd redacted

Korean men rock the makeup and look gorgeous. Nothing wrong with wanting to look good.

I still remember learning that the F word was a slur and not just a bundle of sticks. So deeply disappointed in humanity.
