My first daughter was easy. She did what she was told, got good grades, was not that interested in boys when she was young and was pretty easy. My second daughter is a nightmare. She is only 10 but already is far more worldly then my first and is already asking questions I don’t want to answer.
We have a rule in our house that is very simple. You don’t wear makeup until mom and dad say it is ok. It was easy with our first because she wasn’t interested in wearing makeup. She was into sports and the outdoors and not into getting dressed up and stuff like that. She wore makeup to prom and things like that but it wasn’t much and to this day she rarely wears makeup.
I get the whole makeup thing and I can see why women like it. My wife doesn’t wear much makeup but when she does she does look beautiful, she looks beautiful without makeup but I can see how makeup can highlight certain features and what not so I get it. That being said I am 100% adamantly against 10 year old girls wearing makeup, as in no mother fucking way in hell.
The reason I bring this up is because my 10 year old wants to wear makeup because all of her friends are wearing makeup. And she’s right, the rest of the girls in her class look like little hookers. I fucking hate this with a passion that I cannot describe. My wife agrees with me so there is no chance she will be allowed to wear makeup but it bothers me that she wants to and that other parent are allowing their girls to do this and I don’t get it. They are little girls and they are incredibly beautiful the way they are why are we making them feel like they need to wear makeup to look pretty? We can blame society all we want but the bottom line is it comes down to the parents.
What’s weird is we live in a conservative area where most of the moms are stay at home moms but they don’t fit the typical stereotype of a woman at home who defers to her husband. It’s the complete opposite these women run the household and their husbands defer to them. Yet they don’t have a problem with this and I don’t understand why. I consider this a “man the fuck up” moment where fathers need to lay down the law and say they will not allow their girls to be sexualized at a young age.
