I´d choose the ban.
Make up is expensive, bad for the skin and environment as well as misleading.

If a man rents an expensive car to pose as rich even though he is not, many women would view a possible sexual encounter as rape. Yet for women, it is totally fine to wear fake eye lashes, a wig, lipstick etc. It is an optical illusion akin to men drawing muscles on their stomach or implanting fake muscles (or pretending to be rich).

The trend in the past decades has gone towards more fakery. I remember a female classmate in 1999 who removed her eyebrows and just drew them on instead. It was novel. Now it is common. Once it becomes common, it is difficult to tell whose eyebrows are naturally beautiful, whose cheeks are naturally red etc. Natural beauty loses out.


Perhaps you disagree with me: Make-up should be free for everyone. (equality)
Or you disagree with me and want equity: Only the financially needy or the less beautiful get it for free.


Don´t take the thread too seriously. I am suspended from the Ukraine thread. :D

    @KenniesNewName That's the problem with gadgets, there's a new one being leaked, announced, released every week, and if you wait for something better to come along you can wait forever, there's always something new on the horizon.

    Same thing with price too. Miyoo Mini is $50 and it's fine, but RP2 is only $100 and has way more options, but now there's the RP3 and it's just $30 more, but the Ayn Odin Lite is $190 and it's very powerful, but the Ayn Odin Pro is $250 and it's an absolute beast, but now we're already in the Windows handheld range and I really would like a Windows handheld... Ayn Loki starts at $200, but why not add a few bucks for better specs... but now we're close to the Steam Deck and that is a much better choice...

    So we get from $50 to $500 in tiny, reasonable increments.

    My attitude in those cases is to decide what I want in that particular moment, not waiting for emminent releases. And decide based on function, that is, if I will use it almost daily and if it satisfies my desire/need

    I just give up on buying anything and wait until the desire subsides. Works just as well.
