The Good Mangina Project is trying to convince men that we should pay for dates. Since they say they believe in “equality”, which means that women should pay half the time, they have to go through a bunch of logical gymnastics to justify their position.
As you would expect, they lie about women being paid less. What really stood out was this:
Chances are she spends a small fortune on her makeup and underwear compared to you. While it’s true that some women don’t wear make up (or underwear, for that matter) the vast majority of the makeup industry’s revenue is being supplied by women. Her foundation, moisturizer, bronzer, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, lipstick and nail polish? Those supplies collectively cost her well over $100, and likely over an hour of her time to apply it. Your shaving cream, aftershave, and toothpaste? Less than $20. If the makeup argument doesn’t get you, the underwear likely will. Chances are she spends $20 – $30 per pair of underwear, and you spend $10 on a 3-pack…and don’t forget that she likely also has the extra expense of bras.
In the good mangina universe, men never wear undershirts, and underwear is purely a date expense. However, that is beside the point.
If makeup and underwear are such a hardship for women, then women shouldn’t wear them. Women should start a consumer revolt against the makeup and underwear industries. (Women can take a lesson from #GamerGate.) Women should attack the problem (if it really exists) instead of dumping it on men by refusing to pay their share of dates.
Better yet, women should just be naked on dates. That way they will be completely free from being oppressed by the makeup & clothing industries. It makes more sense than the mental gymnastics required by the Good Mangina Project.
