Hate People Who Judge

Long story short, I have a sister-in-law who is very insecure about her appearance (she has told me before and it's also obvious). She's back in college this year and she always tells me how women who wear lots of makeup are usually dumb. I find this extremely offensive. This girl is just very insecure with herself and angry about her own life. So many women wear makeup, and go tanning, bleach their hair or whatever and can still be intelligent. I just hate people who judge, it drives me insane.

Exactly. I hate labels and stereotypes. They are not rules, but some people think they are and they end up irritating or hurting others with their judgmental comments. As a woman, sometimes I do get the urge to act catty towards another girl, but I prefer to take the high road and appreciate that girl's beauty and accept the fact that I don't know her, so I'm not going to judge.

Sounds like your sister-in-law is insecure because that is an irrational statement. I don't wear makeup, but I don't think that makes me any more or less intelligent than someone who does (male or female). Personally, I think all of God's creatures are beautiful without makeup. It is what is on the inside that can make you ugly or unintelligent.

Yep, good point Deepforest!

Just laugh at her - maybe she is just trying to push your buttons to work you up. Smile and know that the truth may be that maybe people who think people who wear make up are unintelligent may be the dumbest living beings on our silly planet and take joy in that!
