we live in a society where people have more makeup than brain cells
?????? This doesn’t even???? Like what the fuck???? What the fuck is wrong with people who say this shit????? How is it any of your business anyway?????? Wtf?????????
The human brain contains around 100 billion neurons, according to what I’ve read. I don’t know any women with 100 billion makeup. What is that even supposed to mean? Does concealer cancel out the electrical signals that make your brain function?
By all means, criticize the industries that tell women there’s only one way to be beautiful. You should even look critically at what your concept of the “ideal woman” is. You should question the way that society works- life is easier for people who fit into the mold of “attractive” as defined by society, and that’s fucked up.
But this statement sounds awfully like you’re saying women who wear makeup are not the same women who are intelligent, which is so not true. That’s like saying men have more boxers than brain cells. How in the world are those two things related? Looking super good and being super smart are not mutually exclusive.
If you had said “the amount of makeup you wear doesn’t define your worth as a woman or a member of society”, or “smart women sometimes wear makeup and sometimes don’t and there is no problem either way”, or “assigning a woman more or less value because of her appearance is bullshit” then I would have 100% agreed with you.

Don’t sing love songs, you’ll wake my mother.
She’s sleeping here right by my side
And in her right hand a silver dagger,
She says that I can’t be your bride.
“All men are false”, says my mother,
“They’ll tell you wicked, lovin’ lies.
The very next evening, they’ll court another,
Leave you alone to pine and sigh.”
My daddy is a handsome devil
He’s got a chain five miles long,
And on every link a heart does dangle
Of another maid he’s loved and wronged.
Go court another tender maiden,
And hope that she will be your wife,
For I’ve been warned, and I’ve decided
To sleep alone all of my life.
