These things actually permeate your brain and plant little seeds that people then carry around with them and influence how they behave. And it’s so important to analyze this, especially when you have an audience of MILLIONS.
I have two job interviews today. Bit nervous. I’m worried I’ll look tatty. New flat doesn’t have an iron and I don’t have a nice work coat or jacket, I sold them all before I moved to Melbourne. At the moment I can’t afford to buy clothes when I don’t have a job. Feeling a bit desperate really.
Also concerned that the flat back in Melbourne got a $1000 gas bill for August as the flat had a leak we didn’t know about. May have to pay a third.
So interesting how much money takes over your thoughts when you have little. I’ve been poor before but you forget what it’s like.
Need to shake off money worries and get into positive happy PA mode for my interviews. These jobs are in a great pay bracket so if I ace the interviews I’ll be sorted.
Could really do with a cigarette.
things you don’t point out about people:
- body hair in places you’re not used to it being???
- fat rolls/curves
- how much/how little they’re eating
- how skinny they are/what bones they can see because of how skinny they are
- How fat they are.
- If they have crooked or misaligned teeth maybe even yellowed
- If they sweat a lot
don’t do it
In some pretty awesome and uplifting news, Kentucky State University’s interim president Raymond Burse has given up more than $90,000 of his nearly $350,000 salary to help raise university workers’ minimum wage to $10.25 an hour.
Black male excellence
And finally someone said it
nobody’s fucking stopping you from putting on some foundation dude you can put it on and it’s discrete and other straight guys won’t be able to tell and it does wonders. nobody’s stopping you from moisturizing or even putting on the lightest bits of concealer. don’t worry, other straight men can’t tell
Also there’s less pressure for men to be attractive and more pressure on women to see past men’s looks for their personalities, like look how many movies star average/ugly dudes who still score modelesque girls.
step 1: create unrealistic, unattainable standards of beauty for women
step 2: build a multi-billion dollar beauty industry to sell women makeup, tell them they are worthless without it
step 3: mock and vilify women who wear makeup as vain and fake, mock and vilify women who don’t wear makeup as ugly
step 4: code makeup as exclusively feminine, make the feminine shameful, shame any and all men perceived as feminine
step 5: complain that you can’t wear makeup
all that commentary
