"I don’t wear [makeup] at work-related events, perhaps out of a latent sense of conformity."

"I do think if I wore it in a similar way to that of a female colleague, low-key and office-appropriate, I should be able to. In my previous job, I once saw my boss on a Saturday, at a Christmas market. I was wearing pink glitter under my lower lashes. I hesitated before going over to say hello, before realising that this kind of self-policing would make me feel worse than any kind of socially awkward repercussion. And he was a little surprised, but it was fine."

From "Men in makeup: lawyer by day, glamour puss by night."

Bless his heart.

Whatever makes him happy.

But just don't call me a hater if I think it's silly, and would discourage my son from such behavior.

I refuse to wear makeup because it feels gucky. And I'm a woman. To each his or her own.

"Some strangers are so desperate to prove how totally, earth-movingly OK they are with a man wearing makeup, they’ll cross a room to tell you how great you look."

Heh.

Gender confusion or convergence.

He's masculine, he just is comfortable with expressing the depth and range of his emotions. It's bold

Isn't there somewhere he could take lessons on how to apply that stuff? I mean, so he wouldn't look like an idiot? Like there was some purpose to it, ya know?

Sometimes,Life can be very displeasing especially when we loose the ones we love and cherish so much. in this kind of situation where one loses his/her soul mate there are several dangers engage in it. one may no longer be able to do the things he was doing before then success will be very scarce and happiness will be rare. that person was created to be with you for without him things may fall apart. That was my experience late last year. but thank god today i am happy with him again. all thanks goes to Dr. EDIONWE, i was nearly loosing hope until i saw an article on how Dr. EDIONWE could cast a love spell to make lovers come back.

I admit I couldn't get past the "impaled my own cornea" image in the caption.

At least they didn't put "literally" in there.

Your latent doubts about the imcumbent President mean you'll never be PFLAG Mom of the Year.

My name is Camille bruno Valdez my partner and I have been trying for a baby for over two years now, We were going to a fertility clinic for about 5 months before somebody told us to contact this spell caster who is so powerful, We contacted him at this email; arewaspecialistttemple@gmail.com , for him to help us, then we told him our problem, he told us that we will either conceive in February 2014 or March 2014,but after two years of trying we were at a point where we were willing to try anything. And I'm glad we came to Dr Dahiru, Because his pregnancy spell cast put us at ease, and I honestly believe him, and his gods really helped us as well, I am thankful for all he has done. contact him via email: arewaspecialistttemple@gmail.com if you are trying to get a baby or want your lover back. he has powers to do it, he has done mine,
