bill group calls the rest of the losers to tell them mike is gonna come stay with him for a while and the losers, who are, every last one of them, paired off with each other (except for stan who is madly in love with patty “babylove” uris), say ……. oh? mike is… going to stay with you? and bill’s like yeah mikey is gonna come for a couple weeks it’s been hard since audra divorced me it’s going to be good to see him :D
bev starts a new group call as soon as bill hangs up and stan is already wheezing and in full-blown tears of laughter, richie is screaming, and ben and eddie are asking everyone else, like, did bill seem particularly…. bottom-esque to you just now? and after a while bev just goes, oh my god. we’re gonna be six for six
straight boys often have literally no idea how makeup works, it’s absolutely fucking wild like they really think it’s ALL lipstick and eyeshadow??? i’ll mention wearing makeup (i’m a gay dude) n they’ll be like “so you do drag?” and i’m “uh no i actually wear it to look more masculine if anything” and they’ll look SO fucking confused
“i’m literally wearing makeup right now,” i’ll say.
“what?? no you’re not!!!” they all vehemently insist, now searching for the Femininity in my face.
“i have concealer on to cover up my acne and make my whole face less red in general, my eyebrows are filled in to make them look bushier, and i’ve contoured my cheekbones, my jawline, and around my eyes all to look more defined so i look both more masculine and older. yall have never seen, and WILL never see me without makeup on.”
and even with that explanation, they remain baffled more often than not. they’ve gone their whole lives only knowing that makeup is a Girly Substance with no thought given to the actual purpose of each type of makeup, to the point that they’re completely unable to conceptualize it as a thing that could alter your face in a non-feminine way. they’ll have expressions that make it seem like their brain is rebooting so that they don’t actually have to process any of that information.
it’s so fucking sad tbh
Reblogging. Trans men out there could probably do with this boost actually. I’m not sure if it would necessarily occur to folk to use makeup to look more masculine!
i am trans actually! and makeup definitely is part of how i manage to pass. darkening eyebrows and cheek n jaw contouring does fucking wonders
What cis men think makeup is:
his name is hozier and it’s called a creative process
