She likes the idea of pretending to be someone unrealistically sexy and kick ass for a while. (because for some reason she doesn't believe me when i tell her she's sexy all the time) Probably like I don't mind being a burly neckless meathead with a chainsaw on his gun and a misspelled last name for a while.
Because it's.... you guessed it.. fantasy!
So stop fucking with my escapism you self entitled twats.
Your Escapsim, is not someone else's pal.
I for one would like to escape from the pressures of society with having to look pretty and keep up with my appearance all the time.
But I guess, only certain people are allowed a slice of the "Escapism" pie.
Look, I am a guy and I like to dress in pink and wear my hair long and down. I completely contradict the norm of things and that can hardly be considered a bad thing. I draw some odd looks, but honestly I could care less.
Not saying it can't be a bother that some people think that I am un-masculine for it, but I know who I am. They don't.
Guess what I am trying to say here, and don't take it the wrong way, is that that the pressure to "look pretty and keep up with my appearance all the time" still leaves you with the choice to do so or not. You aren't being forced into anything, and if anyone tells you otherwise, well then perhaps you should reconsider who you surround yourself with. Not trying to say here that it'd be easy as pie, but it's still an option you have.
Look pretty for yourself anyway, not for anyone else. I don't put on a smile at work for anyone else's benefit; it helps me through and it should be no different with other appearances.
